***** Sufficient headphone audio for the Heil-Pro-Set product can be done by
 changing the feedback resistors R 9608 and R 9611 to 560K. Also, change the
caps C9606 and C9612 to a value of 470 uf - 1000 uf at 25 volts. I used
1000uf. These components are located on the SHP unit bottom left front with
tuning knob facing you. The board is easily accessed. Leave longer than
necessary leads on the caps (Vertical Mount), to allow folding over parallel
to the board. I found level to be acceptable without distortion, although
not as loud as Yaesu YH-55, YH-77 or Koss KPL-4 phones.

> OK2RZ in New England around June 5?

JP -- As I may not yet be able to talk to the reflector (I
haven't checked lately), please forward the following to the

OK2RZ will arrive in Atlanta on June 1, rent a Ford AeroStar
van and proceed that evening to the town of Central, SC,
which is in Western South Carolina, north of Anderson.  His
son's year as a high school exchange student ends on June 3,
and they plan to go to the seaside in NC for a week after
that, so no OK2RZ at the YCCC on June 5.

Beginning around June 6, Jiri, his son Jiri, Jr. (18), Toby
(16 and part of his host family), and Tom (a 33 year old
adventurous buddy from the Czech Republic, a skilled
photographer) will begin a tour of the East Coast.  I'll be
hosting them in Boston.

Jiri is reads and writes English well.  While here, he hopes
to take (and pass) some FCC exams from VE's.  No exam is yet
set up.

Lest you think that this message is not contest related, I
offer a few notes about Jiri.  Just outside of his city, at
a contest location with a flat hilltop by a water reservoir,
he and OK2SSS and OK2RN have been building a contest
station.  Items:  4PV for 15m at 100 feet, HB9CV on 20m at
85 feet, 4PV on 10m at 80 feet, plus slopers and delta
loops, PLUS a 4PV at 80 feet on 80 meters (wires and 2000
feet of rope!).

At home, OK2RZ has a homebrew crankup tower with a long 4PV
on 20 and 15, "a simple HB9CV on 10m", plus inv vees on 40
and 80.

At the printing works, he has a 60 foot sloping wire and a
240 foot inverted L.

While here he wants to find a USB filter for his Drake R4B,
and an ICOM 751A with 500 Hz CW filter.  Why an IC-751A?
The usual reason:  his buddies all have one -- OK1ALW (who
is changing his call after 30 years to OK1RF), OK1RI and

After more than 27 years as a designer in a big chemical
plant, Jiri and a friend began a printing works with three
employees in February 1991.  Today they have over 50
employees!  They have six offset printing machines, and
print full color magazines and books.  I guess Jiri has
taken to capitalism.

Hams -- I love 'em.

We'll be operating from Baja California again this weekend as 6E2T. So
remember, besides 6D2X, there will be 6E2T-- a little trickier on CW than
"six echo two tango" is on fone. Hope to work you all. 73, N6AZE, W6UQF, N6KI,
