yes a 2905 should give you a watt.

I am experimenting with D882P  which I think I can 2 - 5 watts. T got a bunch of them for 20 cents a piece with free shipping.
Hope they work out for rf and audio.

driving it with a IC inverter.

Probably not enough to worry about.

All my Heathkits from now on will be in the form of the previous company's offerings...rebuilt, modified and redesigned.

The brand/nostalgia sales point is only going to go so far before the wiser masses turn away in search of value and support. I can think of a number of parallels...Indian Motorcycle's numerous resurrections being just one example.

I recently tried ordering some replacement parts for a tuner from them. Parts which are common to a lot of Ten-Tec's 80's-90's era equipment, and which I was able to obtain as service spares as recently as the fall of 2013. Bear in mind that Ten-Tec used to stock a considerable inventory of this kind of stuff, and for gear much older than my tuner.

"No longer available".

One hopes the writing on the wall doesn't say what it's purported to but there aren't too many other ways to interpret it.

I have proved that the house and shack are not causing this.
Talked to FCC field office and they believe it is a switching power supply.
In fact the last time they saw this was an AT&T uverse power supply that was bad.
They are highly interested in this since several amateurs in the area are picking up the same interference.
The other comment made by FCC was that the new generation of fence chargers are not the old pulse type, but are a pulse to an rf circuit that radiates. They have had to investigate quite a few if these.
I tried df with a portable receiver in am mode, but was getting to much broadcast station bleed through.

...can we at least take those [subsidies] away and stop letting them take oil from public lands for free?...

Yes, Yes, and absolutely Yes!  I  do not believe profit is bad. I believe in a free market capitalistic system.  But I do not believe in any form of subsidies. Not for the oil companies, not for the tobacco farmers, not for planned parenthood, not for GM, not for wall street, not for anyone. If an industry cannot stand on its own, it should perish.  But I also do not believe in penalty taxes either.  Should oil companies drill for free on public land?  Well first of all, I don't believe they do drill for free, they have to buy the leases to drill on those lands, therefore they are in effect paying a tax to drill.  I do not know what the leasing process is like, but it is probably more political then it is an economical auction.  That should change, the taxpayers who really own the public land should get as much as the market will bear from companies wanting to drill on our land.  Should they at least pay a little tax?  I do believe they pay taxes, and so do you and I.  Every time we buy a gallon of gasoline, we pay a significant portion of the cost in the form of taxes.  Have those taxes resulted in fewer carbon emissions or funded research on viable alternatives?  I doubt it!  Those taxes go into the general fund and are used for everything from funding planned parenthood to supporting foreign governments.  My position is really quite simple.  Don't trust the frickin government with one penny of your money. Let the true free market reign and if alternative sources of energy are really viable, why the heck would someone not want to promote them and get rich?  There is a reason solar and wind power have not taken the world by storm - it isn't economically profitable.  So I am asking everyone to take the emotion out of the discussion, put on our scientific hats, and truly look at this from a scientific perspective.  The scientists of the world need to stand up and take the lead on this.  Let's quit listening to the political rhetoric, and really think twice before we say, "The government needs to do something."  Let's all grow up and put on our big boy and big girl panties and quit looking to the government as the solution to our problems.  The government is corrupt, seldom fixes anything, and it isn't very hard to find examples of how our so called representatives have mucked up a whole lot of things.  Just sayin' and from what is happening in politics today, I think a lot of people are getting on board with this type of thinking.  Maybe we really can make a difference.

Yes it's always a thrill for me. I'm a little pistol, so even ONE contact with these ATNO's make me throw myself a party.  Smiley

Very congrats.  As real little pistols know, the harder the toil the sweeter the fruit!

I'm thinking of erecting a 88 foot doublet with the center supported by a fiberglass pole. If I run the ladder line down the center of the fiberglass pole, what effects do the 2 metal c-clamps that bolt the pole to a 2x4 support have on the transmission line?

Thanks and 73,
John K7JG
