Re: Generators

Testing was done near the El Paso Mountains on the 24th. Unfortunately it was a contest weekend and the bands we full of the masses. This made it hard to stay interested in QSOs. My opinion is that most contests really just clog the airwaves. I could rant all day about it! Anyway, tested both 20m an...

Re: Generators

Feild Testing is back on . . . Evening and night of Oct 24th from someplace near or around the EL Paso Mountains. A buddy and I will be doing the usual "Red Rock" run with this tossed in.

Re: Generators

Unfortunately, this weekend outing was canceled. So, field testing will be delayed for a bit.

Re: Generators

Well, I put the line conditioner (TrippLite 1200) and the RF noise seems gone on all but 40 meters where it is much less but still annoying (to me). It could be more of an issue because I am testing in my garage with the hamstick dipole antennas on a poll off the front of the truck and the PowerSour...

Re: Generators

Yes, October 10 by sunset or so I hope to be set up and running. I am usually right around 7.200 plus or minus. I often hunt around for an empty place though. On 40 there is sometimes a ‘certain element’ that when I encounter them, I dial way far away. I have not been a 20 meter guy long, but 14.190...

Re: Generators

Well, I got one. It starts fine and I have done that a few times without issue. It runs lights and radio stuff fine. I does not make much audible noise at all. It does make for some hash on 40m and 20m that transmits down the extension cord. It shows up regardless of if the radio is running on the g...

I'll make up for it next week at Borrego Fest. Maybe twice!!!
It is one of my favorite things about going out that way, coming back through Julian and eating pie, bringing pie home...loving pie. Simple pleasures!!!

Re: Mic switch for Yaesu mics

You could built your own, and take up little space . . . maybe.

Maybe something like this: http://www.mfjenterprises.com/Product.p ... d=MFJ-1263 and the manual is here: http://www.mfjenterprises.com/Downloads ... ompany=mfj . . . maybe. :D

I do not know how one can mention Julian and not have pie in the sentence.

Re: Generators

The deal isn’t to save up or not (what you think I am too poor for Honda? :o ). I know people love the Hondas. They are great! However, I am not comparing this to that really . . . mostly looking at if this or another inexpensive solution would work. For Emergency use, I do not worry much. Being wit...
