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.

Building the MFJ Cub QRP Part 2

Well...the Cub did not pass the "smoke test". Totally deaf on sendreceive. Time to troubleshoot; if you have suggestions or tips please put them in comments.

Directional Coupler Basics how to sweep SWR of an antenna Return Loss ...

This video describes the basic properties and specifications for directional couplers, and shows their basic operation on an oscilloscope. Typical applications are discussed, along with a practical example showing how to sweep the VSWR, or Return Loss, of an antenna using a directional coupler and a spectrum analyzer with a tracking generator. The resulting return loss measurement is compared to the SWR measured on an MFJ-259B antenna analyzer.Datasheet for the directional coupler used in this video: http:www.minicircuits.compdfsZFDC-20-5+.pdfMy video on the basics of Tracking Generators:

Repair Log, Part 1 Yaesu FT 7800 Dual Band FM Transceiver, no VHF outp...

This is part 1 of a debug and repair video for a Yaesu FT-7800 Dual Band VHFUHF FM amateur (ham) radio that quit transmitting on the 2 meter band. In this video, we confirm the problem, dig into the schematic and the radio and zero in on the likely cause for the problem. This video shows the basic process I took in the troubleshooting process to narrow down to the suspected faulty components. With the faulty components identified, the next step is to order some replacement parts, then install them and test - that will happen (hopefully) in Part 2 of this repair log... ...can be found here! http:youtu.bemAhvvoBuSRs

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

Kenwood Dual Band TM D710 repair, bad filter, design issue

This video documents the repair of a friend's Kenwood dual-band FM transceiver - a TM-D710. The rig suffered a common failure for this model - the failure of a ceramic filter in the 2nd IF stage causing the receiver to become very deaf. Kenwood made a small error in the design of this rig by applying a DC bias to the filter when in use. It is generally not recommended to apply a DC bias to ceramic filters. Many thanks to Tasos SV8YM for providing detailed information on his blog about the failure mode and repair: http:sv8ym.blogspot.com201007mysterious-case-of-withering-filters.html http:sv8ym.blogspot.com201010lift-withering-spell-off-those-ceramic.html The repair and design correction modification is a little tricky and tedious due to the surface mount (SMT) construction and PCB modifications necessary.

Op Amp Power Supply Considerations split, single, virtual ground, etc....

This video discusses the power supply considerations for op amps. It talks about split or dual power supply and single supply operation, and why the op amp often doesn't care which you use! It shows how traditional op amps designed for split supply operation can be used in single supply applications. The most important consideration generally is taking care of where the input and output voltages are with respect to the supply rails. The input voltage and output voltage range specifications are examined in a datasheet. The operation of a op amp in a single supply application is examined on an oscilloscope. This operation is compared to a modern rail-to-rail op amp in the same circuit.

MFJ 929 Automatic Antenna Tuner

Video review of the MFJ-929 Automatic Antenna Tuner. The MFJ-929 is an amateur radio automatic antenna tuner that is used to match an antenna or wire to your transceiver. Typically, you would also purchase an optional interface cable to connect the MFJ-929 to a modern transceiver. In my case, I am using the semi-auto capability of the 929 with my Yaesu FT-101B and the 929 works extremely well.This device will quickly measure your swr and quickly plug in the correct inductance and capacitance so that you can operate with near perfect swr. The sound of the relays clicking in is normal. As you tune on different frequencies the unit will memorize the settings so that the next time you operate, the match will be almost instantaneous.Thanks for watching and as always, please send me any questions!

6 Meter Band Opening and QRP Contacts using a MFJ 9406

This is a video I shot during a little band opening on 6 meters on Wednesday July 8 2009. I was using a MFJ-9406 QRP SSB rig. These radios are simple and easy to use. The audio quality is great and they pack a punch. The antenna used was a 6 Meter horizontal loop at about 40 feet. This video features 2 contacts, 1) W0RIC in Colorado and 2) K4LF in Tennessee. Please visit for more details. I will be featuring a 3 part shoot out between an Yaesu Ft-817ND and ICOM IC-703PLUS in the next few weeks. Please contact me with any requests and keep a look out for more interesting QRP stuff! Thanks for looking. 73 Bob VE3UK
