T Time
September 6th, 2010 by kmack

Labor Day here in the USA! So a day to play for most of us. Depending on the weather I may get a bit more on air time, but I have a project lined up too.

Some time ago I purchased a Deluxe Tuner kit from Dan’s Small Parts and Kits aka a QRP Mini Tuner by Mark L. Meyer as described in a 73 magazine article. It is a nice little set of parts and a schematic for the price.

So I’m thinking this holiday might be the time to build that little T tuner out and see if I can load up the downspout that runs down the side of my back porch. I’ll let you know how it works!

Hope the bands hold up. Tonight’s QRP-L has a message from N4QA about how nice 40m is sounding right now! Sure would be fun to have our bands back from the QRN and low sunspot streak of late!

    I find it is a good stress reliever to build a small kit that can be put together, tested and put into action in one evening.
    Good luck with the kit and looking forward to further blogs about the kit.

    Kelly,
    I have one of these kits, actually for longer than I can remember, but have never gotten around to putting it together. I will be interested to see and hear of your results.
