    Got my first DX today

    25 watts and an inverted vee got me from South Carolina to Costa Rica on 10 meters today. That was pretty darned cool. Took a lot of patience, but he finally responded to my call. He said I was 5-1, but it was good enough to get a confirmed QSL in LoTW. Good enough to make an HF noob happy!

    Technician question on 10 meter openings?

    Speaking in very broad terms here,,,, is an opening in 11 meter ssb and indicator that there might also be an opening in 10 meter band as well? Been hearing a lot of afternoon chatter lately on 38 lsb,,, just got me to wondering if it might be worth digging out the 10 meter radio and giving it...

    Help ID'ing a SSB mobile?

    So I was reading that this may have been marketed as a 120 channel radio, but that it was largely marketing hype. So far I haven't found any manuals or anything that clearly describes how I should operate it. I would like to put some voltage to it this evening, but the 120 channels is not...

    Help ID'ing a SSB mobile?

    I stumbled upon this at the fleamarket today for $5.00. Anybody know what it is? No tags and nothing I could find on the board It has a 4 pin Midland mic. At first I was thinking Sears based on the 106 sticker on the backplate, but I couldn't find anything via Google. Many thanks in advance.

    Neat flea market find today

    Today I whipped up a drop cord dipole and hung it vertical. I am happy to announce that I made a local contact with the flea market radio. He reported I was clear with just a little static. With the dipole hooked up it was showing 5.5 watts output (confirmed on two meters). Was receiving a lot...

    Neat flea market find today

    Tinkered with it some more yesterday and found what I think is a minor failure. With the power off, the meter needle is all the way to the right. When powered on, it goes all the way to the left ( zero ). Last night I heard a cat from Puerto Rico on AM-16 that was just blowing it up with RX...

    Neat flea market find today

    I did. It dead keyed at about 2.5 watts according to the Dosy. There was modulation when I spoke into the dummy load, but I don't recall the readings. Not sure what else I can do ( or how ) until I get a proper antenna up. As it was, I had a 2m/70cm mobile antenna handy and hooked it up (for RX...

    Neat flea market find today

    Picked up a Lafayette Telsat SSB-120 at the fleamarket today for $10. Got it home and everything appears to be working ( at least as far as I can tell without a proper antenna to hook up to it ). Haven't found much info or manuals on it yet. Any recommendations on how to proceed with it? I wanna...
