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.

MFJ CUB 40m QRP Kit ARRL Package

Here on YouTube.comNG9D we spend a lot of time fiddling around with low power (QRP) radio transmitters, simple receivers, home-made wire antennas and various little gadget kits, celebrating perhaps the best hobby in the world - Ham Radio! In this video we look at a 40 meter QRP transceiver, kit. ARRL sells this radio kit together with an informative book on Low Power Communications. All the Surface Mount Devices (SMD) are factory installed, which makes it very compact and easy to assemble. To align the kit, there are several ways to do it but the only sophisticated piece of test gear needed is a ham transceiver with accurate frequency display! The only other gear you will need is a dummy load (can make from two 100 ohm 1W resistors), a QRP power meter (can make from a 5mm LED), a telegraph key, a 12 volt power supply, and earphones. ... Alignment is simple - it is all done by adjusting the trimcaps and slug tuned coils with a plastic screwdriver. This might sound complicated, but it is really not at all. The manual gives VERY good instructions. I will give you the complete method I used:1. BFO Frequency Spot it by listening to your receiver and Adjust: Trimcap C27 product detector operating frequency to 11.996 MHz. 2. VFO Calibrate: Slug-tuned coil L3 sets the VFO tuning range. Adjust by listening for Cub's VFO signal on receiver. Set for 4.940 to 5.000 MHz. 3. Receiver Bandpass Filter: L1 and L2 peak the receiver's front-end for best weak-signal sensitivity. I did not use a signal generator, I adjusted for maximum noise. Easy. 4. BFO C27 is touched-up for correct sideband LSB, I used signal from my ham transceiver into a dummy load. 5. VFO touch-up, L3 adjusted with Cub into dummy load, and frequency set within ham band. 6. Transmit Carrier Offset: Trimcap C40 sets CW-offset frequency for the desired pitch (say 600 Hz or so). 7. Transmitter Bandpass: L6 and L7 select the desired mixer product and peak the transmitter for maximum RF-output. I used a QRP power meter kit from Ten Tec, but you can also adjust for maximum brilliance of the LED homebrew power meter (LED connected across dummy load terminals). 8. Power Output: Trimpot R19 (mixer drive) sets RF-level from zero to full output Adjust up to the point of max power, but no further (to keep signal clean).Use plastic tool! Metal detunes circuit. I had a plastic tool from a Ramsey kit. You may have one already, if not buy or make one. They are inexpensive and save a lot of grief.This is a good kit for QRP builders, and works very well. By the way, I counted ten of the thru hole caps as type NP0. Temperature compensation of VFO in the completed unit seemed very good. The other video (wire loop with Cub) was made from cold start. I found that the rig exhibits very good stability on 40m.The kit is well manufactured and the instructions are clear. Assembled and tested Saturday, 18 Oct 2014 1445 hrs local with coax fed one wavelength doublet antenna 25 ft high. The book that comes in the ARRL package, "Low Power Communication - The Art and Science of QRP", 4th ed. 2012, included in ARRL kit package is written by Rich Arland, K7SZ. It contains a huge amount of entertaining and useful info. Appendix C contains the complete MFJ step-by-step assembly and alignment procedure for the CUB transceiver. Rich writes well and discusses equipment, antennas, operating, propagation, accessories, modes, etc. ... He covers many popular QRP rigs, but I was a bit surprised he didn't mention a couple of my favorites, the Ten Tec T13xx series and the Hendricks PFR-3A -- or any Hendricks kits for that matter. But this is explained also, there is only so much room in a 299 page book! There are even a few small antenna projects outlined. It's a fun read for QRPer,So, for about $110 including shipping, this is a very fun and educational ham radio project!73, Lynn - NG9D

203 Schmitt Trigger Oscillator revisited TDR Measure Capacitors and In...

This video revisits a 74AC14 Schmitt Trigger Oscillator project that was used for several videos including a TDR (time domain reflectometer) as well as measuring unknown capacitors and inductors. The reason for revisiting this circuit is because a viewer (Marcus Jenkins - EA5IGC) sent me a copy of the board he designed, and I wanted to show him how it performs compared to my original prototype. Here are links to the videos and blog that I mention in this video: My initial video on the schmitt trigger oscillator: https:www.youtube.comwatch?v=NuXitMK3HSA My video on a cheap TDR using this oscillator: https:www.youtube.comwatch?v=9cP6w2odGUc My original video on TDR (uses a signal generator, but theory is same): https:www.youtube.comwatch?v=Il_eju4D_TM Measuring unknown capacitors and inductors: https:www.youtube.comwatch?v=74fz9iwZ_sM Measuring coax velocity factor and impedance: https:www.youtube.comwatch?v=TpIIftvQPFM Marcus' blog on this PCB project: http:bit.ly1ANeKWH Link to order your own boards: http:bit.ly1MgU9wANote - my iPad casestand is by ZooGue - very nice high quality, stable stand.

My MFJ-1786 magnetic loop antenna started to not tune up. When this happens the culprit is usually insects in the loop body. In this video we look inside the body and give it a good cleaning. This antenna still impresses me. Check out my other videos of this antenna in use, I have many DX contacts with it.

cooking | QRP CW ham transmitter part 1

QRP CW ham transmitter part 1

We wanted to make a simple, low-power amateur radio Morse code transmitter. Searching the web, we lighted upon a splendid book written by Frank W Harris K0YIE. In it, he explains EVERYTHING you ever wanted to know about how radio works, how to understand it, how to set up your own radio or electronic hobby workshop - in fact, a veritable treasure-house of information. The link is http:www.wa0itp.comcrystalsetsssb.html . This is the place also to pay thanks to Terry R Fletcher WA0ITP , who provides the link, and also to the QRP ARCI (= Low Power Amateur Radio Club International), based in the U.S.A. but with world-wide membership, who host the actual files. One of the projects in Frank's book was a low power Morse code transmitter for use by radio hams. He also explains how you may obtain an amateur radio licence (which you need to have) in the U.S.A., as elsewhere. Already having had a British amateur radio licence for some years, I decided to try his project. This video covers part 1 of it. It worked OK, though there was a slight problem with our test gear at the end, but we figured it out eventually! It was all great fun, and If all goes well, we will upload part 2 soon.

cooking | Understanding radio circuits through block diagrams Part 1

Understanding radio circuits through block diagrams Part 1

Radio schematic and block diagrams can be daunting to many. One way to understand is to break it up into stages or modules. Many stages do similar things, and knowledge of only a few main families is necessary to understand how a basic transceiver works. This video takes you through these basic building blocks, discussing oscillators, amplifiers, mixers and filters. I describe where they're used and show examples of completed modules. If you're memorising this for an exam, think FOAM (Filters, Oscillators, Amplifiers, Mixers). Afterwards watch Part 2, which arranges the blocks to form various types of receivers, transmitters and transceivers.

KX3 Fails 1 Elecraft QRP Transceiver

Jeder Japanische Transceiver wäre mit gleichen oder ähnlichen Anwandlungen von der Amateurfunkgemeinde zerrissen worden. Japanschrott nennen die „Experten" dann so etwas immer in den Foren und Blogs im Internet. Und eigentlich gäbe es ja gar keine Japankiste die auch nur im Ansatz was taugt. So kann man es regelmäßig auf Amateurfunkbezogen Webseiten lesen.Ich kann mich nicht erinnern das jemals ein japanischer Hersteller es gewagt hat seinen Kunden einen Transceiver aufzutischen der solche Geräusche von sich gibt. Für mich noch interessanter ist, dass viele viele Funkamateure dennoch in den allerhöchsten Tönen vom KX3 sprechen. Man selbst hat das Gefühl eines Nestbeschmutzers wenn man es wagt über Mängel am KX3 zu sprechen. Hat etwa das nervige und vollkommen unproduktive Fanboy-Verhalten nun auch in die Welt des Amateurfunks Einzug gehalten?Leider ist wohl der Ton etwas versetzt zum Bild. Keine Ahnung wie das passiert ist. Es ist das erste Video was ich mit einem Android-Handy gemacht habe.Wer noch ein paar Zeilen zum Video lesen möchte: http:www.dl7vdx.comkx-3-elecraft-erste-erfahrung
