First contact on new rig
« on: June 16, 2015, 02:55:06 UTC »
This morning at 742 my time I ran a sked with Lou VE3AWA. It was my first contact using my breadboard transmitter built from the 1943 ARRL handbook. I also used my breadboard regen from the same book although I had my Heath kit HR10B on for back up.  I had a 6v6 in the transmitter at the time and power out was around 3 to 3.5 watts. Even though noise was high we were successful.
