Huh? / Re: How to save images in MMSSTV?
« on: August 06, 2022, 1540 UTC »

The receiver was the W3HFU KiwiSDR (I also tried the Northwest Ireland KiwiSDR and got the same results), my sound card is the Sound Blaster Audigy Rx, the audio source is set to “what u hear” (the program will hear whatever is playing through the computer),

Do the images look ok using the kiwis built-in sstv decoder?

It's making a barber-pole pattern on the waterfall.  Is there something wrong with the modulation, or is it on top of some digital ute?  I've seen a pattern like that before.

Equipment / Re: Mixing tubes in Ameritron
« on: February 23, 2022, 0154 UTC »
Also, I have this issue, I have the load all the way down to 0 and anything slightly above that the output drops significantly. I have a 1.1 swr on my vertical antenna. Also, at this low load setting the tubes glow, they glow harder when I set it higher. Do you know how I can get it to where the tubes are not glowing and the power is not lost due to a tuning mismatch? I am operating at 6920 khz and the band setting is set to 40 meters.

Do you know how to properly tune a tube amp to resonance?
Does your plate current dip at all?
Tubes in amps are supposed to have glowing plates...just not too much for too long.... ;)

Equipment / Re: 'CB' amplifier for HF
« on: February 23, 2022, 0131 UTC »
How well would a CB type amplifier work on bands such as 15/20 meters? Talking about the standard Texas Star/RM Italy type. I'm wanting to buy a Xiegu G90 and it would be nice to be able to use it mobile here and there.

A Texas Star drops off fast on power outside 11 meters. As moof noted most the older models are 3-30mhz. I had good results with the the older Messenger brand units. Make sure to get an ab biased model if you plan to use ssb. My experience with the RM Italy is opposite of what is posted. I run the RM HLA 150 at CCS at 50% output without a hiccup as my driver amp.

I would suggest emailing some of the Motorola service/repair shops that have been around for a long time, they should have it.
Good luck


Heard the sstv tones but too weak for decode.
I was listening at N1NTE kiwi CT/MA Border, USA
Hope to hear more from your station.

All good advice above, If your not using a balun get one.
Ferrite chokes on audio and supply voltage lines.
Good/proper grounding.
Make sure you are tuning the amp properly, you say it tunes fine then you say it doesn't.
Remember this amp is not rated for CCS.
Good luck


I was listening for a couple hours.
The first hour or so was Christmas songs in English which made me wonder if AD.
Second hour was the music you mentioned.
I also tuned in at the SA kiwi to verify.
Was hopin for an ID or end of bdcast sstv image, neither happened.
