Good one, thanks Sparks.

Morse Code / Morserino-32 — a new multifunctional Morse code machine
« Last post by Sparks on October 29, 2018, 09:03:50 PM »
Morserino 32 is a new multifunctional Morse code machine specifically built for anyone wanting to learn Morse code or improve their Morse code skills. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the system which has launched by a Kickstarter and already raised its required goal with still 12 days remaining on its campaign.

The development team behind the Morserino 32 explain more about its creation and features.

“This kit will change how people learn and practice Morse code. Based on a previous device (the MetaMorserino) and on the experiences of CW Schule Graz, Morserino-32 features a number of functionalities that are, in its combination, unrivalled by any other morse code practice device on the market”

– CW Keyer
– Code Generator
– Echo Trainer (repeat what you hear)
– CW Decoder (from a straight key or from audio input)"
– CW Transceiver, using LoRa in the 70cm band“

It comes with capacitive touch paddles, so you can start learning and practicing without the need to buy an expensive mechanical paddle. But of course, once you have learned the basics and are on your way to the High Speed Club, you can of course connect your favorite mechanical paddle.”

General Discussion / Re: KX3 MARS Mod.

Hi there, Wouldn't the MARS mod render your KX3 unusable under the new FCC advisory note relating to the ability of equipment to transmit out of amateur bands?

I'm guessing you are referring to the FCC taking on Baofeng regarding violating the rules concerning commercial sales of "type accepted" equipment.  There is no prohibition against amateurs possessing or using equipment capable of out of band transmissions; the prohibition is against actually transmitting where they are not authorized.  The MARS mod does not affect amateur use of the equipment within amateur bands.  US amateurs are free to design, build, modify and operate their own equipment as long as the equipment meets FCC emission standards.  That's why kits can be sold without going through the "type acceptance" approval process.  The kit isn't a radio until it is assembled, and then it is up to the individual amateur to make sure his equipment complies.

But, some time ago I read the NTIA (the agency that regulates US Federal frequencies) had ruled that MARS members had to use equipment that complied with NTIA regulations, which did not include modified amateur equipment.  I am not a MARS member and I don't know how that played out.  The NTIA regulates Federal government frequencies, including military, and the FCC regulates civilian frequencies.

I no longer have the FT-817 as it went back to the owner shortly after my last post here, but I have been using the packs with my FT-290Rii with the 25w amp for contesting on 2m. I can run a whole 2.5 hour ssb contest on 1 pack and only use about 1/2 of the capacity of one of the packs. Really pleased with them.
I've also built myself a 3S3P LiPo 6.6Ah pack from recycled 18650 cells and the Vruzend end caps. I use this with my uBITX /P as I prefer to run the uBITX at a nominal 12v rather than 13.8v. I also have a 3S1P pack made from the same batch cells that I use to run my USB devices such as the R-Pi, via  12V-USB Buck converter.

C'mon, Andy,

You know that most Americans don't obey faceless distant bureaucrats, unless we personally believe in that particular regulation.   That goes double if it came from Washington D.C. ha ha
