WB2MIC Homebrew Monster Transmatch

Looking back, I would use the thinner aluminum sheets instead of steel. Aluminum would no be so hard on the hands. The Monster Xmatch has been tested on 40 meters where the 10th tap on the coil and 20% capacitance on both capacitors provides maximum power transfer with 1:1 match for the transmitter. The Monster Xmatch works very well and unlike the MFJ941D the settings do not require readjusting during longer transmission as a result of heating low grade components. The Monster Xmatch total construction cost was $44.20 which includes the cost of a pair of good quality circular tin snips. How to build a Tilt Over Tower. Custom Search (c) M.

Jim Wilson. I retired as Director of Communication Services at the national office of the Boy Scouts of America in 2013.

Jim Wilson

My work there was in publishing and communication. Now I’m “re-wiring” rather than retiring and doing so around a career encore in freelance writing, which includes everything from books to blogs. You can see my career blog and writing portfolio at PathForeWord. I actually launched my writing career in 1976 with my first book and magazine articles published by Wayne Green, W2NSD, and his 73 Magazine. KD6WD'S Moxon Antenna Project. Dave Richards AA7EE. Manhattan construction. EDIT (July 26th 2014) – If you’re thinking of building the WBR, I strongly suggest you check out my most recent build here, which incorporates a mod suggested by LA3PNA, and a different configuration for the AF amp that I think provides nicer sounding audio.

Manhattan construction

The full schematic is published there also. A few weeks ago when a sizable order of parts arrived from Dan’s Small Parts And Kits, the plan was to use them (along with the parts from a few smaller orders from and Mouser) as the basis for some fun home-brew projects. I got my feet wet by building some small circuits Manhattan style – an audio filter and RF preamp for my VRX-1 DC receiver, and a crystal oscillator in an Altoids tin to check out the MeSQUARES I had just received from QRPMe. These are detailed in recent posts. Like anyone who builds circuits, I have a mental list of things that I’d like to build which is updated constantly.

One or two people have asked me how I cut PCB material. The completed circuit. VE7CNF_MFTransmitter. Toby Haynes November, 2015 1 Contents VE7CNF – 630m Transmitter. 1 Transmitter Breadboard. 1 Digital Direct Synthesizer. 3.

Recently I have been trying out a small active voltage probe antenna to aid reception on the LF bands. I used a PA0RDT designed active antenna (but with MPF102 and 2N3904 devices and a 9V supply from a PP3 battery) to listen successfully to amateur signals on both 500kHz and 136kHz. The probe is also suitable for listening on the 33kms "Dreamers Band" (8.97kHz).

It is recommended that the active antenna should be mounted well in the clear and away from the house feeding the power up the coax). This is to avoid noise pick-up from mains wiring, switched mode PSUs and TV line timebases. However, I just stuck mine onto the inside of my double glazed window - it still worked and heard stations on both LF bands. It works because the FET has a very high input impedance. As an experiment I connected the active antenna directly into the FT817 and took a listen on 160m when the antenna was completely within the house and surrounded by noise sources all around.

Antenna special on The Hula Loop medium wave DX antenna Take two children's hula hoops, make a T cross and wind five turns of wire through the hoops. Voilá, you now have a superb medium wave DX antenna. Comparison of Kiwa and Quantum loops Which loop is best: Kiwa or Quantum?

Mark Connelly has been doing some tests, showing that the Quantum loop is better is several instances, while the Kiwa loop excels when it comes to nulling. 80/160 m coax receiving loops There have been several times that the loop has made the differrence between hearing a station or not.
