Force 12 C3

Fri Oct 27 17:05:02 EDT 1995

It seems that Force 12 has some good antennas based on the comments noted on
this reflector.  So I am considering getting one of the C3s for CONTESTING.
Can anyone supply me with a copy of Force 12's C3 antenna assembly manual.  I
have their catalog and have seen all of the ads but want some more details
before I spend my family's entertainment budget (reference the thread on
Wifes, Kids, and Contests) on another "XXXX!" antenna.
I will be glad to send SASE and pay copying cost.

Good Luck to everyone in the CQWW SSB CONTEST this weekend.  I will be
operating single band, single op, low power on 10 only.  Hope there is some
decent propagation this time.

Subject: ct/775 help

Dear contesters,

I've got an opportunity to use the new ICOM 775 DSP
for CW sweepstakes.

I have been using an IC 738, which has worked perfectly
with CT9.22, telling CT it was a 737, and changing the
address on the 738 to "3CH" which, I guess, is what CT
is looking for.  As I said, it works great.  This may be
of use to other contesters who have moved to a 738.

I tried the same scheme on the 775, setting the 775
address to 3CH, but still telling CT it was a 737.
No dice.  It tells me "ICOM radio timeout." Any hints?
Do I need to tell CT it's some other radio?  Do I need
to fix the adress? Help!

If anyone has solved this for the IC775DSP, I'd sure
like to know about it.  When I've got a solution, I'll
make it available to anyone else who asks.

For now, I'd sure love it to play correctly for the
SSCW contest next weekend!

I am trying to help a friend build the Kenwood computer interface
described in the QST article but am having no luck in locating
the NEC PS2501-1 optoisolators that are shown in the schematic and
don't really want to pay a second source dealers price.  Does
anyone know of a suitable substitute part or have a data sheet
on the 2501 that I could use to find an alternate part?  Maybe
someone knows of a different circuit that uses different parts?
His rig is a TS450S/AT.  Any help would be appreciated.

Don't worry abt that, Wayne.  Use any opto, or even just a transistor. 
Isolation really is not necessary--unless u find noise or ground loops, etc,
