I'll be QRV from home on both 13 and 3cm so hope there is a bit more activity on 3cms this month

Last month Martin G3UKV won the 3cms open section with 3 QSOs with me a close second with 2 QSOs!! 

That's just taking the p**s

Hello,
WX looks to be kind for tonight so I’ll be /P tonight from IO94 on 13cms.
My KST is a bit intermittent but should be OK – hopefully!

Re: SMA / APC3.5 accessory part s earching

Hi Dom,

I have used PGA 103+ at 5v with no problems for a HF active antenna and a broad band VHF UHF preamp.

However they are not unconditionally stable at HF frequencies, and may oscillate themselves to death if they are not terminated with something like a 50 ohm load on the input and output.

Mini-Circuits have produced an application note on the subject http://217.34.103.131/app/AN60-064.pdf

134 GHz QSO today

Chris G0FDZ
 

Hi folks
Roger G8CUB/P and myself worked each other today at 13:00 hours on 134 GHz using CW, . Roger G8CUB/P was located at West Tilbury (JO01EL65RR) and Chris G0FDZ/P was located at Higham in Kent (JO01FK22FT). Signals were 559/549 and the distance was 6.721 kms. Roger will produce a report for Scatterpoint in due course on today's and our other recent activity on this band.

Hello ,

I experience PGA103 burning if used at 5V , I'm not the only one. Anyone with similar experience?

Re: 10G personal Beacons and band plans ??

Andy G4JNT
 

He is looking to use it as an attended beacon, which is no different
to any station in normal use - albeit not making kew-ess-ohs

On bands where this is specifically mentioned in the bandplans xx.70
to xx.80 is given ie just below the beacon band.
So when I put up test transmissions / unattended beacons I always go there.

(The recent 432.43 was an exception as it was a test for something
that will eventually go there.)

Look at your licence Ts and Cs section 2 schedule 2 p 23
That shows you where you can put unattended beacons.
Not between 10125 and 10400MHz

Hi Dave,

Yes this is this kind of tiny plastic toy I'm searching, I cannot afford to purchase a high end scope, I spent already all my money plus the ones of my wife into a brand new noise source! Lol...
I looked ar Huber Shuner site without success, may be I was too quick, I'll once more.

Hi David,

Thanks for your proposal, I appreciate VERY MUCH !
May be I can send you my personnal address off-line, my email is:
pfmonet AT wanadoo DOT fr
Let me explain why I'm searching this:
During the EME2014 ( www.eme2014.com ) conference next August I'll come with my HP MMS 70k spectrum analyzer loaded with the NF software 70875A to do with my friend Sylvain F6CIS a Noise Figure measurement campain up to 24Ghz.
To do so I sent on my own personnal budget a purchase order to Mercury Systems USA (formely Micronetics) for a brand-new Noise Source 5db ENR / 26Ghz ( http://rf.mrcy.com/datasheets/datasheet.php?t=noisesource&model=NS346AK ) and as you can imagine I would like to protect the connector from this new toy which will arrive here late May early June.
In addition I have few other accessories I would like to protect. I've tried some wrench tools made in metal but these ones can destroy the connectors if you tork too hard the hex screws to maintain them, or if you tork too hardly the wrench itself. The plastic wrench offer a sort of tork limitation on the connector itself.
For info to my knowledge Mercury (formely Micronetics) is the only manufacturer which offer 26Ghz sources at 5 to 8db ENR. I'd contacted Noisecom & Agilent and their 5db sources are limited up to 18Ghz. Their 26Gig ones are only 15db ENR.
So Dave please contact me on my email not to poluate too much the reflector, but I wanted to inform the group the reson of my search.

I hope to see the maximum of you in Brittanny during EME2014, all nights the bar is going to be open, and believe me in Brittanny they know also how to do some good beer!!!
And for your spouses a nice visit program is organised, they will not have to support technical talks all the time! 
Kind 73's to all of you.

Bjr Pierre-Francois,

I have some that came from John PA7JB, who I think makes them himself. They are very useful for test cables.

Hi the Gang,

I'm searching for a manufacturer which build an accessory for sma and
APC3.5 nuts, to tork easily by hand the plug when you have to mount and
dismount it very often.
It's a sort of plastic wheel you place on the hexagonal nut of the plug.
It exists also in alumina however the one I'm interested in is the
plastic one not to scratch the nut.
Do you know who's manufacturing such a tool?
I need several of these to equip some noise sources.

I would appreciate your help.

Also if you're EME fan don't forget to register you to the EME2014, it's
located just across the Channel in Brittanny at Pleumeur Bodou.

I think what you are referring to DMC used to fit to some of their

I've found 3 in my DMC junk box.

If you want them I'll post them to you, let me have your address.

2016 - Geostationary Microwave Amateur Radio Transponders

M5AKA
 

Qatar’s Es’hailSat 2 satellite will provide the first amateur radio geostationary communications that could link amateurs from Brazil to India. The satellite is expected to launch by the end of 2016 and will be positioned at 26 degrees East.

The uplinks of the two transponders will be in the 2.400-2.450 GHz and the downlinks in the 10.450-10.500 GHz amateur satellite service allocations.

If you are describing what I think you are, then Agilent use it on a
high end scope. You could ask on the Agilent forums, and hope someone
from Agilent will know where they source them from - I doubt they
would make them themselves.

I believe Huber and Suhner do some press-fit SMAs, so there is no need
for a torque wrench. They might be worth investigating too.
