Thank you very much!
Maybe over the weekend, I can do some EQsl cards.
There is a discord link on my website if you want to join.

Thanks for the Reception!
I finally fixed my tube amplifier so it is much more powerful now.
the relays had issues with the contacts and were shorting the output of the amplifier to the input. I tore them off and hard-wired across them.

Thanks for reception!
May make eqsl if I have time. If not I am sorry. I have been busy recently. it hard to keep track of things.

Thanks much! I'd love an eQSL. BTW, did you receive the reception report & MP3 that I sent on 1/28? Maybe I sent it to the wrong e-mail address?
I am not sure I have seen that email. my email address is 87.7fmradiopushka@gmail.com
Charlie, I think you need an eqsl card too.
I will make the cards soon when I have time off from college homework.
Thank you!

Yup it was me.
Thank you!
Lol Stretch the truth. Yeah stretchyman transmitters are troublesome.

Thank you very much!

Yeah that's good. The 1/4 vertical has really helped over loaded antennas and antennas with top hats.
time to build a linear amplifier though. 15 watts is doing good.
I also need to guy it down because the antenna is very flimsy.
would you like an eqsl?

Thanks for trying!
I like you for helping me!
Maybe one day I can get an RF amplifier. But still not bad for 15 watt carrier and 1/4 vertical.

sorry about the technical difficulties. I just need better equipment.

Yeah sorry about that. was me. Stretchyman transmitters are a pain in the butt and way too overpriced. cannot even drive a tube linear. I left it on overnight, it was fine first but then in the morning i noticed that it was almost dead carrier with hum. when i turn the volume up too high i get feed back and only one of the sound cards on my computer works with it without any linear amplifier. technical difficulties and no support from parents. At least you guys have a stronger signal now due to me finally installing a full length quarter wave on 6920. That is why i was quiet for so long.

Unfortunately I don't.
I have a stretchyman transmitter and I don't have enough money to even buy a driver for my 1kw tube linear let alone a new transmitter with ssb capability.
I recently bought new tubes for it and they were sent but never arrived.

No problem guys! :D
It makes me happy to know that someone has heard it from home rather than from an SDR online.
About the audio, well lets just say that the Stretchyman transmitter sucks, been having issues with it not having enough power for my 1000 watt tube linear. I use stereotool.

Broadcast Announcements / Radio Pushka reopening 6920

Well MW was a failure like always.
Back on 6920 like usual
fixed amplifier issue, Ameritron needs to have the same type of tubes. can't mix 572b and Г811.
New antenna is a cage conical vertical.

Equipment / Re: Ameritron Al811 help
« on: December 31, 2021, 0919 UTC »
Well thank you very much for the advice guys!

Found the issue. The amplifier tunes good enough for operation the problem is that i have two Vacuum tubes in it while the amplifier needs all 3 to work properly. How i found this out is i took out so there is only one tube left and checked the modulation. With one tube the audio down low before distortion was not even audible. With two tubes it was low but still quite audible. I bought the third tube but it still is taking a while. In the meantime i ordered a couple of irfp460s and i hope to get a 200 watt carrier with two of them or at least a 100 watt carrier with one of them should be enough. 15 watt carrier i have now is not satisfactory as 6925 is an issue and noise is high. And in the amplifier i had 572b tubes.
