Re: PA for qcx 40m #qcx40



I support Don's recommendation; they're a great bunch, very helpful. I have two amateur radio forum memberships: this one and that one. Make sure you bring your straight key along, though: you won't be able to log any QSO credits (and there is a huge credit system for QSOs with other SKCC members) using an electronic keyer.

That's great news. Are you a member of SKCC yet? They are a great group and have a nice sked page to help get started. It is free to join and you will find lots of ops there happy to help you with your first QSOs.

Well the good thing is that it's operational. I went to both the RBN & Websdr and both picked up on a signal. On the few that picked up, they were around 500-600 miles away. I'm guessing that's not to bad for being the middle part of the day. I'm just glad I didn't mess this thing up, I'd hat to have to order another one and waiiiiiittttt for it to arrive.

Wspr can be difficult to set up, but rbn tends to be easy if your cw is discernable. Your PA circuit could have a bug, even a missimg solder joint. See if your finals even get warm. Very difficult to say, but so far indeed you have zero data on transmit.
