Subject: 160 mtr qrp es misc
I'm new here to this group and have been monitoring for a
week or so...this is a darn good group of QRP enthusiasts!
I have built a few QRP rigs in the past and I'm always
impressed with what a few watts of power will do.
I worked the 160 meter CW contest last weekend with a
homebrewed rig, its not QRP, (100 watts SSB/CW xcvr, all
solid state except for a pair of 6146's in final) but, I
worked two QRP'ers! I don't have their calls, but as a
friend of mine (NC8V) likes to say, "Workin QRP on 160 is
real 'hairshirt'." Translation.:It takes a real tough guy
or gal to do it! Especially during a contest!
I would be more than willing to set up sked for anyone who
wants to try QRP 160 for a contact SSB or CW (I QSL 100%).
I can back my rig down to QRP levels too.
I have another QRP transceiver I designed and built that
runs about 5 watts on 30 meters. It has a Direct conv
receiver. The vfo hetrodynes with an 8.2 mhz (approx) xtal
up to 10.1 mhz. The final is a parallel set of 2SD414's and
can run up to 9 watts if I crank up the voltage.(Hate to do
that to the poor lil buggers!) Is there a QRP freq and time
to meet on 30 mtrs??? Post to net or e-mail me direct.
