No luck for me with my mag loop and bitx, called on and off for about 20 minutes before the mosquitoes got ridiculous. I did hear w3ttt but that is about it.

I think I have some antenna work to do. I'm hearing nothing on 7.277.

Looks like I typed that too soon, Now I'm hearing someone from North Carolina.

Sure hate I'm missing the roundup tonight. I think I have flashed my radiuno  board, as it won't do anything but light up now ( no frequency display) .
Guess I'll buy another raduino....see y'all on the air then...

All:

I've just uploaded Release 2 of the B40 assembly manual, B40AssemblyManual02.doc. This pertains to adding/using the modifications I've added to my BITX40, mainly via the PCB that I'm using. It contains some thoughts on populating the PCB and how some features work. It is now 33 pages long and has some photos that might be helpful when building it.

Join us as we make contacts from BITX40 to BITX40 on 7.277 MHz in 40 meters!

To participate, call CQ BITX at 7pm sharp, your local time, on Sunday. Call off and on for about 15 minutes. It is helpful if you call CQ BITX with your name and location.  Repeat your call a number of times if conditions are weak.

This is a worldwide event at 7pm in each time zone.  You may participate in any time zone, regardless of your location, so you may wish to call in at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm, your local time, to contact hams in adjacent time zones.

The backup frequency in case of QSB or other noise is 7210 kHz.

Report your QSO's, discuss propagation, noise, signal reports, audio reports, antenna type, etc. in this thread.

This is an undirected, scheduled event.  The BITX QSO Night relies on you to call CQ BITX to initiate contacts with other stations, so warm up that final and transmit a few calls at 7pm on Sunday.  Talk to you then!
