Doesn't it disconnect automatically after no activity period ?

I can't quite see the point in those who appear to be logged onto KST  ad infinitum

Yet when called they are obviously not there. 

Is it really that hard to click on disconnect and connect?

Re: X Band ( 8-8.6 ghz) LNA wanted

Hi Keith,

Have a look at https://www.surplustechmart.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?p=4&q=low+noise+amplifier+7-9GHz

You can find some good stuff here, certainly 1 to 1.5dB NF which will do as a starter.

regards,

Paul M0EYT.

Used or new but preferably without sacrificing my first born child :)
The rest of my 8ghz gear is coming together nicely, but a band specific LNA would be a real bonus.
Mr Google isn't helping in my searches .
On the off chance ;)

FWIW, google translate doesn't do a great job of the pdf files available on axtal.com but it does give enough that you can work it out.

There is a whole level of nutjob action on Youtube where they publish copies of music with A set to 432 Hz instead of 440 cos it does Healing and is more in tune with the Universe and stuff.  All about harmonics of Schumann resonances.

Good grief.

Except it isn't.  It's all because Verdi didn't like singers being divas about high notes. Allegedly.

There are even apps that will do the 440->432 conversion.

Gentle pee-extraction of the nuttiness by this guy.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKTZ151yLnk

Hello

My empirical findings are that most people prefer somewhere between 600 Hz to 700 Hz. Some below 600 Hz and very few above 700 Hz. I haven't got a clue why 800 Hz ever came into the picture since not many listen to CW at 800 Hz.

Attached is a single slide from one of my presentations at the 2018 RSGB Convention showing the sensitivity of the ear vs frequency and age.
