Anyone have experience in removing the tarnish from your Kent twin paddle? I would like to get mine looking new again but i'm afraid that if I take it apart it will blow up in little pieces and I wouldn't get it back together. What do you use to clean it?

       I'm looking for a meter to determine the value of various Capacitors and Inductors.   I have a big box of Ceramic Capacitors in the PF to uF range from a Hamfest and some of the markings are worn off.  I've seen adds for a "LC200A Inductance Capacitance Meter" on both Ebay and Amazon for around $40.  Does you have experience with this meter or do you recommend something else?

Whatever... don't you think being able to put out a catalog doesn't prove a thing, unless your catalog has something that folks are interested in BUYING???

Regardless of who owns DX Engineering, the real question is whether the catalog delivers a profit in the end.   Dx Engineering delivers products that are in demand.  RS has crap that no one would buy, glossy catalog or not... businesses are run to make a profit. If DX Engineering was losing money, the catalogs would stop.

Good points and thanks again.

I don't care about 80m so much at this point, as the frequency I need to be active on is 40m anyways - though it's good to have  options in mind.  That's a few hundred off the budget (and I'm assuming dollar store speaker wire would be great to use for a basic antenna) and keeps me relatively flexible nonetheless.

Now that Mike and I have corresponded at some length, my respect for at least one person at HRDSoftware, LLC has changed immensely. Mike was dealing with a very angry and upset customer over the weekend but he never turned his back on me despite the tone of some of my emails. In the end, we even swapped a few really bad jokes!

I am happy that you are getting help with the problem.
Mike is a great guy to deal with, I am sure that if it is at all possible he will find a way to make something happen.

My new TJ5A and Opek antenna are in the mail as I write this. I will try to upload a review of the radio both here and on YouTube. Seems like it will be a fun little rig for the money. Plus, there's room to tinker with it a bit. I'd like to add an internal tuner (elecraft kit) and a BFI DSP if there's enough room in the case. I'll be running it from both the optional battery/case and an external lithium iron oxide 12ah battery I bought. I'm also going to add the LNR Endfed Quad which coincidentally covers the exact same bands as the TJ5A. Give me about a week to get the info out. 73

ZGP:  Yes, I think those are the ones I heard about, and someone mentioned they were called "catkin" tubes for some odd reason.

I am looking for a 25 to 50 watt amp also. My QRP fun comes from building yet another radio. I built a 1 watt rig then upped the power to 4 watts which is adequate most of time. I followed with a DC receiver then a CW filter.

My next project is a simple super het receiver, then a 25 watt or so amp for those noisy evenings on 80 meters.

Yes I have a Yaesi rig that I  can run at reduced power. But sitting behind an appliance that someone else built; pales in comparison to hearing a reply to the CQ you sent from a rig you cobbled together yourself.
