Not actually uwave but maybe indicative of things ?

GB3WGI- the transatlantic beacon is a solid signal , peaking at 559 at the moment with good JT65B decodes .This is the strongest I have seen since it came on and oddly it peaks today at 35 degrees South of its normal true bearing and can be seen due West from here .

Not bad for a beacon pointing towards the US from NI .....

Oncore GPS

David <david.g6feo@...>
 

Some years ago I bought a Motorola Oncore GPS unit at RAL.

I've lost the CD that came with it.

Can anybody help me with the pinouts of the RJ45 connector on the Oncore
Interface board made by Computer Cab Co Ltd. I presume the power input
to this board is 12volt DC.

Thank you,

David.

Hi Alan

I will be about on Sunday. I will be keeping an eye on conditions.

I know my location isn't great in your direction, but conditions may help.

It was good to work you on 23cm in the UKAC with my 3.5W. Conditions to the South were really bad.

Re: Power Amps 23cm

Dave <dave@...>
 


 
I too have a 150W PA from Bert and can confirm that he produces very good equipment.
 
However, this is not a 'plug and play' option.  As has been said, you still have to add some other bits and pieces.  I went for the option with the heat sink and fan, but you will need changeover relays and to wire up the unit.  You will need to think about switching as well.
 
I hard wired the bias voltage, as I did not want to risk any chance of applying RF power and voltage to the main terminals without the bias on.  I am also in the process of wiring up relays to operate the coaxial relays as the manual option is fraught with the danger of not switching things on in the correct order.
 
I've also wired up a resistor to drop the speed of the fan when not in transmit mode as it is quite loud and interferes with hearing the audio from the rig.  However, I didn't want the fan to switch off completely as I wanted some air flow through the heatsink all of the time.
 
Cheers - Dave (G0DJA)

Hi Alan,

I bought the 150 watt version and am very pleased with it. Bert is a real craftsman, and the enclosure is very nicely milled. It's a delight to own such a well-made piece of gear. He's easy to deal with by e-mail and responded rapidly to all my e-mails. You might have to wait a month or 2 for him to make it since he's in great demand! Recommended.

Good Morning Everyone,

I have been looking at building a power amp but at my age shaky hands and poor eye sight, that says no :)

So I have been looking at a company PE1RKI that makes amps around 25 watts / 250 watts http://members.chello.nl/b.modderman/amplifiers.html, I will be looking at the 75watt model

Has anyone had any experience with this company, or should I be looking at something else.

At the beginning of September, I sent out this msg - and someone replied 'yes please' - but I can't track down their reply or remember who it was! I shall be at the RSGB Hamfest
next Friday (Sept 27), so please contact me (off reflector) to make arrangements.

FREE TO GOOD HOME
Pair of flat ex-BSB aerials, 16" square, with mounting brackets. These are umpteen series/parallel fed dipoles made for X-band satellite TV. Weather seals all still good, even against inquisitive  Cornish birds. Ideal if you have limited mast space, or like square aerials... or ......
Last used for wideband ATV, so they have modified LNBs one for TX and one for RX. The RX one went into the ancient analogue satellite box, and then into the SCART socket of a TV. The TX LNB is a reversed one (see early scatterpoint article) which gave 40mW or so of TV transmit. Good condition, complete, and best of all, FREE.

Now the catch: buyer collects, or meets me at either RSGB Newark event (Fri. 27 Sept)....

Hi Alan,
 
I have a 250W version built by Bert and I’m completely satisfied with it. Generally you will just get the pallet from him and will need to supply your own heatsink and cooling fan. There are also the kits and fully assembled amplifiers from W6PQL which are also very good and worth considering. http://www.w6pql.com/parts_i_can_provide.htm
