WAS Back On - Freq. Change to Around 13.566 mhz
« on: June 29, 2019, 2311 UTC »
GE Hifers,
I just fired WAS back up (yesterday) after replacing the defective osc/amp IC. I have adjusted the output to about 1.4v p-p on the scope. Think that translates to a bit over 4.7mw to the 22m dipole. The new IC moved the freq. up to around 13.566 mhz. I would appreciate any reports...should it be heard?...esp if I am interfering with another beacon or if the new freq. has QRM from ISM xmsns. I will let it run a while on the bench and will probably be doing some tweaking freq. wise. I have packaged the xmtr with a 12vdc p/s and it will be up on the wall. The xmtr is still slow to re-start after loosing power so will need to address that problem since it will not be easy to get to.
Tnx...73 de Bill K4JYS/WAS
