I assembled this MFJ-9340 Cub QRP CW transceiver for 40m for my friend Gerry - N2GJ. It's a very pleasant kit to build. All surface mount components are already mounted on the board. Assembly involves soldering the through hole components, and winding two toroidal coils. For me, the assembly took one evening, and the alignment took another evening. The video goes through the block diagram of the transceiver, then walks through the schematic, describing the function of each circuit. The transceiver tunes from about 7005kHz to about 7.070kHz. At the end of the video, I sweep through the band, listening to the various CW signals that can be heard on the 18" antenna I have connected in the basement. Pretty sensitive for a simple receiver.

Simple Station Monitor for Ham Radio using an Oscilloscope

This short video shows a very simple way to hook up an oscilloscope to use it as an RF Signal Monitor to observe the RF envelope from your ham radio transmitter. It shows how you can use the stray RF coupling that exists between the RF path inside of your tuner to one of the unused ports in the tuner as a simple no-cost RF sampler to couple the signal into your oscilloscope. BE ABSOLUTELY SURE that you do NOT transmit directly into your oscilloscope - that is a sure way to DAMAGE your scope!

Portable Antenna DX LOOP QRP BAG by IK5XCT

Antenna DXLOOP, antenna Magnetica LOOP diametro esterno 1,2metri in cavo flessibile CELLFLEX con diametro del conduttore 12,3mm.I materiali realizzativi permettono un ottimo rendimento per il portatile QRP dai 40M ai 15M con le seguenti efficienze rapportate al dipolo posto a mezz'onda dal suolo:40M ... 15,1% 30M ... 39% 20M ... 66% 17M ... 82% 15M ... 89% Nel mio Zaino QRP è possibile trovare la DXLOOP contenuta in una Bag realizzata e cucita appositamente per questa antenna, Yaesu FT817 - DXKEY easy per le chiamate automatiche QRP Tasto Minipalm - MIcrofono Yaesu MH31 - Batteria al LiPo da 5A Tripod della SIRUI T-1005X L'idea iniziale fu quella di realizzare un'antenna tipo la ALEXLOOP ma con performance maggiori, infatti in questo mio modello il diametro è di 1,2m invece che di 1m ed il conduttore è di cellflex (12,3mm diam) inceve che RG213 (calza 7,35mm diam), questo mi ha permesso ad esempio di triplicare l'efficienza in 40m etc.... maggiori info su http:www.qsl.netik5xct73 de Stefano IK5XCT QTH: Cascine di Buti (PISA)

Drake TR 4Cw Ham Radio Transceiver Capacitor Upgrade

I decided to upgrade some of the old electrolytic capacitors in my Drake TR-4Cw radio that I purchased new in early 1977 just before I got my novice class ham ticket. This radio is build like a tank and now it should last another 36 years!

Cheap and simple TDR using an oscilloscope and 74AC14 Schmitt Trigger ...

This video is a follow on from my previous video that discussed how to measure the length and impedance of coax using an oscilloscope and an pulse generator. This previous video goes into more of the theory and the different measurements you can make. It can be found here: http:youtu.beIl_eju4D_TM However, this video showed the use of a pulse or function generator as the signal source. The problem is that most inexpensive generators won't have a fast enough risetime to be able to resolve shorter cables or finer precision in the measured length. This video shows a very inexpensive circuit that you can build that has a very fast risingfalling edge speed, making it easy to more precisely measure the cables. It is based on a 74AC14 Schmitt Trigger Inverter chip and a handful of passive components. One of the six inverters is used as an oscillator which drives the remaining 5 inverters in parallel to drive the coax under test.More detail regarding the Schmitt Trigger circuit can be found in the video uploaded immediately prior to this video: http:youtu.beNuXitMK3HSAThis video is shot in HD

How to zero beat WWV to check or adjust a Frequency Counter s accuracy

This video shows how to zero-beat the WWV signal as a tool to adjust the frequency reference of an old frequency counter. It demonstrates the concept of zero-beat'ing a test signal against the WWV carrier. Since the WWV carrier is likely more accurate than any other frequency reference that most hobbiests and hams have in their labs, this is a useful technique. It can be used to check or adjust the 10MHz reference in the counter, if it has one, or can be used to very precisely set the output frequency of a signal generator which can then be used as a test signal for the frequency counter.Similar techniques can be used to adjust the frequency accuracy of a ham radio's reference. Several years ago, I wrote up a procedure that I put on my website. If can be found here: http:www.qsl.netw2aewadjustrig.htm

Amateur Radio Elecraft KX3 QRP with LNR Precision Par Endfedz on Mt Be...

Join VK4FADI and VK4FSCC for an afternoon on Mt Beerburrum, Sunshine Coast using an Elecraft KX3 with an EFT EndFed 102040m antenna on a squid pole. Propagation was not great but we made a few fun contacts. The Par Endfedz Trail Friendly antenna from LNR Precision worked a treat with 1.0:1 SWR on 7.090MHz, the SOTA frequency for 40m. This was a trial run for when Summits on the Air gets going in Queensland. Mt Beerburrum will be a SOTA summit worth 1 point. It is a relatively easy summit with a 20 minute steep hike up a concrete path to the summit. The entrance is easy to find from the main street of Beerburrum, about an hour north of Brisbane.Take water and insect repellent and sunscreen. The views on a clear day are great. The walk is 700m in distance, climbing about 260m as you go. There was a steady stream of visitors doing the climb on the day we climbed and a fire warden was working in the fire tower at the summit. There are no facilities at the summit.

Circuit Fun a simple RF detector demodulator probe for DMM or scope

This video describes a simple RF demodulator detector probe that you can use with your DMM or oscilloscope to measure the relative amplitude of an RF signal in your circuit. It is very useful for tuning or adjusting IF stages during alignment, filter responses, peaking RF circuits, and examining amplitude modulation characteristics. The video describes the circuit and its operation, and demonstrates how to use it and the typical results you'll achieve. It uses a pair of 1N34A Germanium diodes, but could also be built with other low capacitance, low bias diodes.

Ham Radio Expedition Mountain topping w FT817 Buddistick

A video log of our adventure hiking on Mt Herman. My goats Rooster & Peanut dance on the rocks while the 'old goat' works 20m SSB. FT-817 and Buddistick made it all the way to Fairbanks! Not bad for the bottom of the solar cycle.
