Very interesting very antenna here at K8GU homebrew vert antenna
Will have to spend some time collecting parts for this project — would like to take this for the Easter weekend but I dunno if it will happen or not !! I will take the telescope for viewing the stars and hope to have the time to do a little qrp on the RM40 will do something !

Here are a few pics of some of the projects I have been working on! Most of them keyers an antenna analyzer and a beacon controller I want to do a alt-Blt tuner but I have to get one of the older kits.

I have also built the qrp kits TWOFER PLUS 10M for my low power beacon — it’s a little chirpy so I’ll have to work on it a little. It’s going strong at about a watt of power on 28.378.3 +- a few kHz

Scowering the web for diagrams for the CI-V I found G3VGR digram rummaged through the parts bin — couldn’t find my 2n222a but did find some 2n4401 wired it up now just find that old laptop or desktop that has a serial port or my USB to serial connector

Took about an hour to build had the btx brand maxblock modular d9 connector ( no soldering to the pins half of a proto board some rat shack resistors the cap diodes and the mono 1/8″ jack from an old ir extender and some heat shrink tubing ( didn’t want to put it into a box ) and she is ready !!
