Jeff,
 
I have a Cushcraft MA5B for sale if you want it for $150. I had it up for 2 months until my Force12 C3SS came in, it is only 8 months old.

I have thought about them myself but anytime I have mentioned it to the old timers and some of my elmers they just cringed.  I am using a homebrew inverted vee dipole fed with ladder line.  I wonder how one of the verticals would compare??  I know my dipole is cheaper.  Force 12 has some verticals out as well.  Take a look at their site. I have also been looking at the Cushcraft MA5B mini beam as well but they all cringe at that too. J  We can’t all have 100 ft towers and tri-banders….

Hi All,

FWIW, I have 4 ants in my ant farm for low bands.
1 - Ground mounted Hustler vert w/o radials (intentional for high angles)
2 - Full wave loop for 80 m @ 10', works good on 40 also
3 - 165' wire sloper for 160 m top end @ 50', works on all other bands
4 - G5RV as inverted vee apex @ 30'

The main benefit I get from these ants are varying launch angles and noise
reduction. If the noise is bad on the vert, it usually is several dB down on
one or more of the other ants. Directionality is only slightly different
between all of them.

73,
Jay - AA8QQ

PSK Thesis

Duncan <zl3jt@...>
 

de Jungle Telegraph
I have no problems with anybody using my 'PSK Thesis' to assist someone with setting
up their Stations to operate in PSK31 mode. I would prefer that it not be amended.
I take no responsibility for errors any person may make, and bear in mind my experience
is limited only to my equipment, and the software I have in my equipment.
Maybe some others have different ideas and experiences, or different ways of doing
things.

Soundcards

Duncan <zl3jt@...>
 

de Jungle Telegraph
There will be differences between soundcards. Even from the same manufacturer. This
anomally is inherent in mass production. There are 'tolerances' laid down by the
designers, and if a component is within the tolerances of fit or performance then
it released for incorportion in the machinery.
In transceivers there are tolerances, and that is why each is 'different'. Most are
very good, but every now and then someone gets the 'lemon'! It is a fact of life.

Two identical machines can never be exactly the same because of the 'tolerances'
allowed in the manufacturing process of every component.
An Astronaut in the Apollo Moon landing project 40 years ago made an observation
that they were in space, going to the Moon, in a machine of several million components
all supplied by the lowest Tenderer.....
Think about it!
To operate PSK31 we all have to use a soundcard of at least '16 bit' complexity.
I cannot see the point in telling that to another operator during PSK QSOs....?
By the way, it's no use asking me Technical Computer questions. I just operate the
bloody thing, and get it wrong a few times too!
When it all goes wrong, I know how to 'reboot' it, (whatever the indicates), and
start again....
See ya in the ether! 73s

I took a look at the document while on-line, but saved it and will read it more thoroughly after I get off.  It looks like something that a lot of folks should read.  Sometimes all of our signals get a little "wide" in the excitement of things.  I have learned to look at the ALC meter and reduce things so that I have no more than 20-25 watts out and no ALC indication.  That seems to help.  At least I've not had any complaints about my on screen waterfall at the other end.

Hi Jay!
Nope! If you study the pictures carefully, even though the traces are very red, you
can see that the signals are way out past the 'twin carrier lines'. This is definitely
the fault of the transmission, not the reception. I have seen this on a lot of signals,
not anywhere near that strong.
Such signals utterly destroy the chance of working weak signals on the frequency!

I have written a little 'thesis' This is attached in MS Word as a Text document.
