Hee, they are a lot of fun. Being rock bound brings back memories of my novice
days. Man, that was loong time ago.

If you use the Ten Tec TP-19 enclosure, I'll be happy to send you a label with
your call and build date on
it. A picture of mine in the TPC-19 is here, http://www.wa0itp.com/index.html
I do like the charcoal color. The TP-19 dimensions on the Ten Tec web site
differ from the one I purchased. Mine is 2" x 4.75" x 4" and the PigRig fits
perfectly. http://www.wa0itp.com/pigrig3b.jpg

Changing freqs,say to go to 7122 for Wayne's nets, will require 4 xtals. Three
for the rcvr front end filter, and 1 for the local oscillator. Diz has crystals
as well as ESS.

Shame on you guys. Made me order one too, though it has bounced around in the
back of my mind since hearing Terry on his one day this winter.

Joe, et al,

Caught the fever and ordered mine yesterday. Hopefully, I will get mine built
and on the air, handing out #11. I have not been active in the club but hope
this little rig will spur me on!!!

That is too funny.  The flu hasn't quite made it to my shack yet, but I think it is pretty contagious...

I guess it could be called the 4 State Swine Flu!! 

My construction starts this weekend I hope!

The enthusiasm for this rig is fantastic! I haven't been rock-bound for a long, long time but it really brings back some great memories (and some really frustrating ones!). I just ordered the kit which looks like a great deal and hope to catch a lot of you on the air.

Terry,

This little pig went to Ozarcon,
This little pig stayed home;
This little pig ate roast beef,
This little pig had none.
And THIS little pig went whee, whee, all the way home, was fed a proper diet of juice (the 12VDC kind), and her voice was heard throughout the land ...

Suckling pig #178 exited the mailbox in Gnadenhutten OH on Friday March 08 2013 and the apapropriate slap on the backside (with a soldering pencil, of course!) will commence in the very near future.

I would appreciate a label if possible; March 2013 would be fine.

Thanks also for all the crystal socket ideas. A 14-pin machined pin IC socket could be cut in half at the center pins, yielding four 3-pin sockets ... just right for one rig if the center pin of the 3-pin socket is used for ground as per some of the ideas and pics at http://www.w5usj.com/images/bandchangemods.pdf and http://www.w5usj.com/images/crystalgrounding.pdf ...

Now back to tending the suckling pig ...

Terry,
Thanks for the label!
When I mentioned using a 14-pin IC socket cut in half, I should really have
said "cut into quarters", meaning cutting across through pins #4 & #11, and
being cut lengthwise right through the middle (and trimmed as needed to
yield 4 socket sets of 3 pins each).

Hee, good one John,

Label attached. Printing it on colored paper makes it look much better
than on
white. I like yellow (no surprise there :o) but some builders have used
other colors. Light gray and light blue both look very nice too.
