Mike & Key Swap Meet Cancelled

Rowland
 

Unfortunately the 2021 Mike & Key Swap meet has been cancelled due to pandemic. That will be two years in a row.  To bad as this is one fun event!


Thanks,

Re: Can I use a duplexer / triplexer in reverse with 2 rigs and 1 antenna

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

Yep, that’ll work.  I do this (admittedly with three radios) in my shack to route signals to/from the CX-333.

Hey Snovarcians,

I have a triband antenna that I'd like to share between two radios: 1) a UHF/VHF and 2) 220Mhz.  Rather than use a switch - which would only allow me to send/receive on one rig at a time. I was wondering if I could use a triplexer to direct the 220mhz to one rig (obviously the 220) and the 2m.70cm to the other rig so I can keep both rigs listening and transmit on either one. I know this will work for receive only but will I blow up a rig when the other is transmitting or will the triplexer keep the output separated? Has anyone done htis?

Should be fine. I did it in the past with another radio setup.

Snovarcian FT8ers:

If you have time for an hour or two to join the scrum calling him, you can add Mali to your stamp collection. I'm calling full 200 legal watts. This is first time I have ever seen Mali. -10 to -16 here.  GL and 73

Would the group be interested in a short NanoVNA demo on Thursday 6pm before the Rookie Roundtable? A couple people have requested this and, with the social distancing, it will be a while before I can bring it to an in-person event...   so let's Zoom it! 

Based on responses and availability of others we'll make a decision in the next 48 hours but I'm ready to do it if you'll join. Let us know! 

I'll be focusing on using the NanoVNA as an SWR tester for antennas. The topics will include:
· Hardware overview
o Example hardware / where to get
· Set to show SWR (easy)
o Trace
o SWR
o Scale (.25 a line)
o Stimulus
· Calibrate
· Save Calibration
· Recall Calibration
· Sweep 2m and 70cm
· Zoom to 70cm
· Show two different antenna tunes
· Sweep HF ant
· Identify where HF ant is “tuned”

Re: Normal or whacky band conditions?

This web site      Link:   HAMQSL.COM      has all kinds of information and explanations for propagation.  It is the website where the icon on the top right of the main page of the QRZ web site links to.  There is a page that explains all the parameters affecting propagation.

The solar flux today is 88 but it has been as high as 93 in the last week. These numbers are much higher than it has been for the past year (my ham lifetime - Dec 2019 licensee) so this should boost propagation.

Based on responses and availability of others we'll make a decision in the next 48 hours but I'm ready to do it if you'll join. Let us know!

I'll be focusing on using the NanoVNA as an SWR tester for antennas. The topics will include:

· Set to show SWR (easy)
o Trace
o SWR
o Scale (.25 a line)
o Stimulus
· Calibrate
· Save Calibration
· Recall Calibration
· Sweep 2m and 70cm
· Zoom to 70cm
· Show two different antenna tunes

Would the group be interested in a short NanoVNA demo on Thursday 6pm before the Rookie Roundtable? A couple people have requested this and, with the social distancing, it will be a while before I can bring it to an in-person event...   so let's Zoom it!

Based on responses and availability of others we'll make a decision in the next 48 hours but I'm ready to do it if you'll join. Let us know!

I'll be focusing on using the NanoVNA as an SWR tester for antennas. The topics will include:
· Hardware overview
o Example hardware / where to get
· Set to show SWR (easy)
o Trace
o SWR
o Scale (.25 a line)
o Stimulus
· Calibrate
· Save Calibration
· Recall Calibration
· Sweep 2m and 70cm
· Zoom to 70cm
· Show two different antenna tunes
· Sweep HF ant
· Identify where HF ant is “tuned”
