Heard here in Nashville, S9 +20
0024 UTC - Carol - Chuck Berry
0025 UTC - Peter Gunn - Duane Eddy
0026z - I'm A Man - Bo Diddly
0029z - Mean Mean Man - Wanda Jackson
ID - Weasel Radio
0031z - I love you baby - Paul Anka
0044z - Heard it on the grapevine
0046z - Off?

Absolutely amazing signal here. Getting s9+ with a portable is near impossible even on commercial stations sometimes.

The RF Workbench / Re: Passive Squelch Circuit

Stretchyman, I was thinking about designing a squelch circuit that can act as a middle man between the radio's headphone jack and the listening device.

The RF Workbench / Passive Squelch Circuit
« on: March 01, 2019, 0446 UTC »
Hi, I'm currently working on a plug-in squelch solution for radios that do not have a squelch function themselves, such as many of my Tecsun radios. Looking at many of the circuit designs freely available, I have yet to find one that satisfies one of two conditions:
1) Completely passive, requires no power supply whatsoever, besides the 3.5mm input. (Maybe this is a ridiculous notion. Please tell me if it is.)

2) Swaps out its transistors for something more feasible like Diode Resistor logic, making it more suited for low power operation.


Nah, just the closest to 6925 I could get at the time.

Just to verify, your v2.5 transmitter will work with a 6900 KHz crystal, correct?

I remember my first encounter with the phenomena about a year after getting my Grenade. I had the transmitter sitting on the box I used for packing it and my gel-cells into my tx sites. I got the audio level I wanted and turned off the receiver to save battery life. I was literally in the middle of nowhere, it was dead quiet. Damned if I didn't I start hearing familiar music? I thought it was RF getting into the "off" receiver, so I picked it up to give a listen. That wasn't it, it was coming from the box. The thing was acting like a resonator for the modulation xformer.

That's it, that's exactly what I'm referring to. Did you happen to find a solution or do you have any suggestions about what might apply to my situation? (Btw, it's one of Stretchy's LULU's, v2.5)

Today I've been assembling a transmitter and once I had gotten everything connected properly from the amplifier to the transmitter I turned it on. I then proceeded to find out that the mod transformer was oscillating to whatever I sent down in the input. In essence, my transformer has now become a speaker, and is not putting any output to my antenna or transmitter. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Just tuned in at 2355z, hearing some good Johnny Cash. Glad to hear from you guys, it's been a while.

2355z - Johnny Cash - Boy Named Sue
0001z - Animal dating website commerical
0003z - Tom Jones - What's New Pussycat?
0008z - California Dreamin' (Signal dropping into S3 territory, pushing back up to S5 for gray line prop.)
0012z - Valeri - The monkees
0014z - Western Union - The Five Americans
0015z - Monty Python and the Holy Grail into TCS ID
0018z - Up Up and Away - The 5th Dimension
Signal' s dropping pretty heavy as the sun sets out here, unable to ID songs.

Thanks for the show! Brought a good amount of enjoyment to what was a tiring Monday Night.

Equipment / Stretchyman's 10W LuLu Transmitter
« on: March 18, 2018, 2225 UTC »
A few years ago, I bought one of Stretchy's original LuLu's, assembled at the component level, but not overall. I was wondering if anyone has one of the later fully assembled transmitters and would be willing to post the way you connect the amplifier, transformer, and transmitter components together. Thanks in advance.

Late here too. Signal is very bad here and the slant was being autistic, but here's my SSTV copy.
