New To Radio / Re: Working with s7 -s9 noise
May 12, 2016, 08:05:03 AM
I have s9+ noise all the time. I throw the breaker and it goes to s9.

This past winter a limb ripped the line of the house and i fired up the radio and got s1-s2.

So it's not my neighbors since they have power but something between the line and the breaker.

The way I read it, no tuner needed.  It's an improved version of the LNR EndFedz.

I think their secret is a standing wave hypoid bearing.  Or maybe it's the transformer core made from prefamulated amulite.  Unless, of course it's that the main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots of the stator; every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible trem'e pipe to the differential girdlespring on the up-end of the grammes.  (See the Turbo Encabulator for full details.) 

uuhhhhh, wut?

finished the level one.

overall it was great even though I missed a few classes due to schedule. I have a hard time copying and plan to spend more time with the computer program copying words

so far so good. what really helps is to have and instructor/classthat you meet with on a regular basis.

focus is on learning and sending which is awesome.

I've upgraded my key to a Bencher by-2 and it's made a huge difference

looks like I got bumped up in the September/October session of CW academy and have officially started the Koch method.

As a one time sufferer of Lyme i can tell you the antibiotics made a difference after one day. This is a great idea.

The handbook you mention sounds like the 18E(SF Commo) handbook.

Hello Hank,

I can't find this one on the Internet. I sure hope it can be identified positively. It's a great book.


Link is not a link.

I'm going to adhere to the rules and stay out. I don't really want this to be my first kit with SMT's and since i haven't used my MTR-3b i'd feel bad having a an unused 3B and an un-built 5B while someone else with the knowledge and exp goes without.
