Hi Jorge, I can comment on this from personal experience. My first Beverage farm consisted of several unterminated, bidirectional Beverages. I could hear better with them than I could with the verti

As a person with disabilities I am not questioning that some have legitimate reasons for not being able to tune a CW signal precisely by ear. However... How many people these days don't have a compu

Bob, I am truly sorry to hear that. If is only 160 through 40 meters I guess you can count your blessings. My neighbor has a plasma TV that trashes 160 through 6 meters! He was nice and allowed me to

My fellow topbanders, I have a new noise source this season. I don't seem to be making much progress, nor do I fully understand the issue, so I thought I would try asking for advice. I have a very un

I agree 100% with everything else, but must admit to mixed feelings about this one. I have mixed feelings about spotting anyway, as it brings out all the lids! I've often been frustrated when I find

This is a follow-up to my earlier post (included below for easy reference). The solution to this issue has been found. It was the switching power supply in the POE injector, as many of you suspected.

I've been using an ICE 196 to safeguard my receiver for several years and want to share something else I discovered about this device. I suggest using a bandpass filter ahead of the ICE 196 may be ap

Wayne, It could vary anywhere between sunset and sunrise at VP8ORK. Given that they barely, if ever get to total darkness this time of year, it may tend to be about half way between. They were very w

I have not had any problems with WD1A but those steel strands which give it strength will rust quickly and eventually break if water gets to them. Seal the ends so water cannot get in! I put crimp c

Finally some remarkable propagation! I got up about an hour before sunrise this morning to see if there was any sign of T30RH on topband. Nothing, so I parked the receiver on 1826.5 and went back to

I have been using them for some time. I suspect they protect receivers OK. I did have to put a bandpass filter ahead of mine. On nights with very good propagation I found my noise floor would rise,

Hi Lloyd, Unless the type F material is far more effective than 31 material, why pay $20 each? Mouser has the Fair-Rite 2.4" #31 core for $7 each. That is the lowest price I have found for small quan

Huh? As I stated earlier, out here with the QRM and crowding if you are not darn close to zero beat you risk not being heard. There is no point in calling if you are going to be under the big gun on

Hi Bill, I stand corrected. Evidently they were talking about 50-75 Hz to avoid being EXACTLY zero beat with other callers. That much can be useful. 100+ gets into a gray area, over 200 is usually g

I'm sure that's true in some cases, but QRP'ers take heart! There are some, myself included, who enjoy the challenge of trying to dig a very weak signal from the noise. I suppose that is why I gravi

My $0.02 worth: A single R is sufficient if signals are strong and QRM is not a major factor. In weak signal conditions RRR is more efficient than QSL or CFM. There is a reason a long sequence of RRR

Fine. But in marginal conditions a single R can easily get lost to a static burst or signal flutter/rapid QSB. I still contend that RRR is the same length as QSL or CFM and more likely to be understo
