G'Day,
 
You two should head down to the pub together - and shout each other a 20 pints at the bar until you both become good friends, or be so drunk that it does not matter anymore the next day!
 
And if you both not kissing each after 20 pints - go top shelf untill you do ..

Re: Alternative talkback - CLOSED

Simon L <gm4plm@...>
 

what is it with you guys lately!

this topic is closed

play nice or else!

I shall re-iterate - no personal slanging or teddy fights or you shall get sent to your rooms without supper.

Seriously - get a grip guys - you do more damage by these arguments and everytime it happens the number of unsubscribes rockets.

just think about that...

no more slanging or I shall have to use the smite button!

ok, now take a deep breath, go back and read **your** email.....

as you do so , imagine that

I lived on the east coast
I designed and built the UK's biggest ever144 Antenna
I use KST
I once owned an HB9CV
I am currently on higher bands witha 4 dish
I am a good friend of a guy making serious representations to authorities
about Galileo ( and I know that you know shit about shit)
I do not have a UK morse certificate ( but I do have a professional marine
one) I own a flat screen tv ( actually I don't but I might buy one now just
to annoy you)
I have several systems that need "sorting out" ( so therefore I must be
whinging)

and on , and on , and on, "the foods so greasy here isn't it " and " you
can't get a nice cup of tea" ........at first I thought you might have Dr
Scholls sandals and a copy of last weeks Sunday Express,

But finally I just concluded you are a grumpy old git who , having insulted
just about everyone who owns a radio station, and/or, lives east and south
of the Wash, it was just time in plain language ( 20 words per minute
maybe ?) to tell you what you really are.........

Graham

Oh you are really are the most obnoxious person I have every had the misfortune
to encounter.

As you have dragged the thread down to the gutter level, it best this thread is

Hi guys,

I am after some tin-plate boxes for my 10GHz transverter I'm currently building, could I have some suggestions for UK sellers?

I have seen a seller at good prices, but the name of the site has slipped my mind...

many thanks Gary (M1EGI)

Re: Alternative talkback

GM6VXB
 

Here Here,
 
From the northern view point without KST I would work no one, after all when does anyone point there beams or dishes to the North ?.
And because of the 'lack of pointing North' my microwave activities have stopped. Yes I did try calling CQ on 144MHz, result ?
B all.
I run EME now. Maybe I should forget about KST and N0UK and go back to the 'real' way of making 'a' contact per year by sending a letter to the person I want a QSO with.
 
KST and N0UK is nothing more than a tool and should be used as such. If you don't like it, don't use it.

Sorry, I thought I was subscribed to a Microwave operating group, not to
a group where some of it's members seem blinkered to the advances in
technology presented to us today.

Lets go back to real amateur radio then eh? where power was measured in
DC input, everything was built from scratch, and AM and CW were the only
methods of communication, lets spend 6 months painstakingly drilling
ebonite panels, and fabricating huge racks of equipment that would allow
iffy communications a few hundred milse away.....

Get real!

KST is an operating aid, some of us will use it, some wont - PC based
logging is also an aid - I see that written logs are a thing of the past
now for contest ops, yet I hear no-one bemoaning that. If you have the
space for a decent 144mhz talkback station, then more power to your
elbow - most locations will not permit a decent length yagi, and running
"decent feeder" is not a subject taken lightly - not all of us have
dedicated shack facilities, and would certainly think twice before
running several lengths of 4-50, or 5-50 through walls or windows....

Can we stop this needless ranting and rambling on this matter now?
everyone is different, if you dont like, or cannot accept change, step
aside, and allow those of us that support it to enjoy ourselves, and
make our own path - if KST was such a bad thing it wouldnt be so popular!

ARE YOU SAYING SOD OFF politely.

I will not step aside, and this discussion has been going on for at least 5
years, before KST.


M1 , you never knew what 2mtr was like, and still could be if it used, We maybe
lose a chunk during the Olympics. With the level of activity Ofcom might just
decide to make it a secondary band.


Is it "real" to be able to construct and either know what you are doing or learn
from it.

Re: Coupler Help Required

Bart <shf2@...>
 

Hello,

Maybe a late reply but I looked in some old radial catalogues and found the 432473 coupler (without the 120 at the end).
It states that it is a 10 dB coupler for the range of 1000-2000 MHz with a directivity of 25 dB, SWR 1.15 and an average power at 25° of 200W and a peak power of 5 KW.
