Re: QDX TX current in spec/slightly above on one band only.
Hi Alan, Evan
Apologies for having taken up your time with this enquiry. I have now downgraded myself to "Newbie" having committed one of the basic kit building sins (I believe the photo says it all). Remaining three LPFs now have their diodes in place!
Current draw versus band now much closer to specification:
Supply = 9v
TX 20m 970 mA
TX 30m 1110 mA
TX 40m 940 mA
TX 80m 910 mA
PA FETs 30m bearably hot, other bands warm.
Planning to run with 8v which I think will be close to Hans' suggested 6W max output.
Need to get some connectors for patch leads and I'll be able to measure power and hopefully connect to my multiband dipole.
Still haven't figured out PuTTY. The instructions seem to be in a language I'm unfamiliar with!
