You're happy.......you needn't get all upset.......you're seemingly just easier pleased than me, that's all.

Not hardly, I am very fussy about audio (more than most) and much more than watt meter.

Silly is when you have a modern supposed state of the art 100w rig and a TS520 gets better unsolicited reports and the even bigger shock horror coincidence is when the watt meter has the audacity to reflect that.

What is the surprise? Hybrid rigs like 520 have a tube driver and tube finals which have a wider dynamic range than most SS devices and therefore tend to do better with audio/modulated RF. While tubes are relatively fragile, bulky and make heat they still do a excellent job with audio reproduction that many SS devices still struggle to match. Some hard core audiophiles still use tube amps.

Maybe something like this...?

If you bump the budget up to $300-400, they have some nice 100-200 bandwidth Oscopes, even a portable 60 MHz unit.  Take a look.

From a google:

MFJ-813 HF QRP Wattmeter and SWR Bridge

Read forward power and reflected power from 0-5 Watts on a calibrated meter scale - plus read SWR and relative power at any power level from 100mW to 50 Watts. Bruene-style bridge circuit detects both RF current and RF voltage to ensure uniform accuracy across a wide range of load impedances, operating frequencies, and power levels. It`s a great tool for working on your QRP radios, 1.8 to 50Mhz. Rugged black aluminum case, SO-239 UHF connectors, 4-1/2in W x 2-1/4in H x 3in D.
Thanks - I didn't catch the part about 50 watts when I looked it up. Sounds about what I am looking for.

I should have asked more questions, but didn't. I purchased a Yaesu FT-7800 from Jerome in November, and immediately payed via PayPal. The radio arrived with one missing mounting screw, half a power cable, and the microphone rattling inside and missing the hanger button on back. I sent him an email expressing my disappointment, and admitted that it was my own fault for not asking more specific questions. As of this date, no reply. I have only been burned once before, in 2000. I guess I was a little to trusting of my fellow hams. From this point on, I will be asking very specific questions before a purchase.

Wouldn't it be easier to put down 4x8 sheets of 1/4 plate tacked together?  Grin

Stranger by Gamma (Ronnie Montrose) has Morse Code at the beginning and ending of the song.

(PS: If you like "lost hits" this is a terrific one from about 1981!)


... - .-. .- -. --. . .-.    I wonder what compelled them, or any other act, to do that? (the morse, not the music)

Hi,
     On the advice of another ham, I'm looking to upgrade
from a Yaesu 1200 to the new Icom 7610. 

     Given that the 7610 isn't released yet, is the 7600
usable on all MARS digital modes?  I would assume so,
but need to make sure.


Thanks and 73,
Jack

This is a bit silly in that I do not care if my rig makes 100 or only 90 watts as field strength difference is not noticeable. What matters is how you sound and clarity of audio not the watt meter is show max possible wattage when talking.

You're happy.......you needn't get all upset.......you're seemingly just easier pleased than me, that's all.

WD4HXG asked " Are you willing
to pay $25.00 or more for a ticket? I doubt many would."

Well if I remember correctly that was about what the ticket for Dayton cost back in 2000. Good price for 3 days, of course I wasn't paying for lodging, at that time I lived in Champagne County which was about a 45 minute drive worst case. Closest good shopping for me was Springfield, so it was no problem. I am hoping to have time and money to make it to Dayton again sometime soon, it has been 10+ years. Maybe Champagne County fairgrounds would work, they have some air conditioned and so on buildings, or did have.

It's easy for those hams that don't live in antenna-restricted HOA communities to voice their opposition to any ARPA bill. They don't have a dog in this fight. It's my opinion that they post to these threads just to stir things up, and try to aggravate those that do.  Wink
