Does anyone know how to wire a Serial port CW interface for N6TR
log program? (I need the pinouts)

Yeah - that is wrong. Assuming you have a 1.8 kHz ssb filter and
assuming that it had a "brick-wall" response and assuming that
your equipment is totally clean, you are still out of the band!
You cannot have any - repeat - ANY energy outside of the band segment.
And, as you can see, audio responce of 1.8 kHz means you would have
energy at least 1.8 kHz from your suppressed carrier frequency.
And reality dictates it will be a lot more than 1.8 kHz.

Actually, the 1.8kHz is for an audio bandpass of 300-2100 Hz, so even with
the brick wall filter he'd be out of the band on 7152.0 (signal would be
transmitted from 7151.7 - 7149.9 kHz). Like Del says, in reality filters
aren't brick walls, so you'd be out on both 3752.2 and 7152.0. 3 KHZ from
the band edge is probably OK for an 1.8K or 2.1K filter, but if you're using
an old 2.7K Kenwood filter you'd better stay 4 kHz from the band edge.

In other words, you encourage his operating style...

All contesters are invited to the November PVRC/NC meeting.
The meeting will be held on November 13 at N4AF's Apex QTH at 19:30.
We will be conducting post mortem's on CQWW SSB & SS CW and
planning for the upcoming SS SSB and CQWW CW.
To prime everyone for the coming contests, two videos will be
The first is one of W3LPL in the 95 CWWW phone choreographed
to rock music.
The second video is of the million dollar station K2GL
that dominated Tuxedo Park, NY. Neat shots of a 750# rotator for
four ele 80M yagi being hoisted up a 195' tower, a 76' long
90' wide yagi, or the twelve thousand dollar antenna that lasted
for five weeks.
Closer to home, K4MA will describe m/m station N4ZC outside of
Hope to see everybody then,

Directions to N4AF:
>From Raleigh, take Rt64 (toward Jordan Lake). At the intersection
with Rt55 make a right turn. Approximately one mile up Rt55 make
a left turn onto Jenks Rd at the top of the hill.
The second right turn off of Jenks road is Roberts Road.
The fourth house on the left, in the woods (you should see the lights),
will be N4AF.

Subject: Headphone frequency response
Message-ID: <199611091348.FAA03577 at dfw-ix10.ix.netcom.com>
For this CW SS I decided to buy a new pair of over the ear phones to replace
my trusty BM-10, to reduce in-shack QRM from the new amp, etc. Got a pair
of Radio Shack PRO-40s which are light and very comfortable for me, but ...
They have 'way too much high frequency response, making me even more ga-ga
than usual at the end of the contest. Can anyone with technical knowledge
tell me if there's a simple way to roll off the frequency response above
2.5kHz or so? I don't really want to build a low-pass filter, just take the
"edge" off a bit!
