Morse Code / Re: Morse using Inexpensive Stations
« on: September 16, 2017, 01:51:35 AM »
Yesterday I made QSO with Russia from Spain with my Tentec R4030 and 14m wire (endfed 10 MHz).

From July I made about 100 QSO around the Word in cw using cells and 4-5w.

The only limits is the bored pileups of  the DX stations.

Technical Corner / Re: Pro and Con of Various QRP Rigs as survival radios

Vwflyer, perfect definition of both rigs.

I have Tentec (youkits) but if I could get a mtr3 better to have the couple.

I am learning so much with this post (thanks Gil for forum)

I don't like the bottons for change frecuency of mtr5b and mtr3 and that no input more than 12v exactly but the people who has it are glad.
This two reasons also why I don't like MTR!

I own a Tentec R4030 (youkits HB1A more o less) and I am very happy with it, in fact, I don't use my 817ND never in CW since I bought the tentec.
Now this rig is not being made? I found this which says the R4030 is not made by Ten-Tec, but it is? But on Ten-Tec website is not longer listed. Maybe they stopped to make it? How much this rig costs or only available now second hand? Was it a kit or ready built? Very good specs, my only problem with this rig is I would need 40/30/20 at minimum, not just 40/30. But otherwise it's great!

Tentec R4030 or R4020 are discontinued, I bought it second hand in ebay.

Actually there is a Youkits HB1B, improved (more bands, swr meter..).

Anyway, the better way to take idea about both is that you test it (LNR and Youkits) or almost watch videos about it.

All the people who know that has a Youkits/Tentec are glad, same all the people who has a LNR.

For this qrp activities with a rig without swr meter, I use a endfed antena tunner that tunned throught a variable capacitor or coil, no need swl meter because the perfect tunned is when the maximum noise recepcion.

You can get it the mountain tunner of Sotabeams or the Ilertenna from a spanish dealer.

The ilertenna has a led to sintonize it (minimun bright is the perfect swr tunned).

  The cap of a pen is a great idea.

I attach to the wire a small piece of paracord with a Hanged knot to fit in the físhing pole, It gives no surprises with the mountain high wind.

Good for a entry level SDR but better a second hand 817, if you add the amp, better a KX2

I watched yesterday the video, no glamour but simple and effective.

Some day I will make anything like this for 50 mhz.

Thanks for show us, Gil.

FB Jon.

That one was also made by Youkits. You'll have a lot of fun with it. We should try a contact some time.

Gil.


Yes, I know LNR rigs have more performance but I just paid 160€ for Ten Tec (Youkits).

I hope we meet on the air as soon as posible.
