Re: My Elmer Story

... I think I enjoyed the changing conditions of the radio broadcast more than the play by play coverage. I liked hearing the QRN and QSB... The crackling static sounds somehow calmed me and often times I would drift off to sleep. Hiya David I know that this post has been on here a while, but I've ...

I took a couple of quick snaps of the oscillators. The first one is the HD-1416A Kit, with box, manual, and all the bits. They even supplied a practice key, so no excuses! :wink: http://www.hamradioforum.com/pix/HCO_kit.jpg The second one is a HD-1416 (non 'A' version). The main difference visible w...

Hiya Rob OK, so now I will make you feel really sick! I not only have a kit (unbuilt), but I also have an assembled one too 8) When I first bought the kit I wanted to build it so as to use it for Morse practice. While I was flipping coins to decide whether or not to build it another one (already ass...

Hi all

I have one of those code practice oscillators in kit form... I'm torn between building it (so as to use it), and keeping it as it is (seems a shame to spoil a piece of Radio history).

Oh the pain, the pain of it all... 8)

Hiya I think Morse Code is a little like hand writing. Some people can write fast, some write slowly. But it makes no difference how fast you write, so long as you have something interesting to say and folks can 'read' what you've 'written'. Like the FISTS moto: "Accuracy Transcends Speed"...

Hiya Bill OK on glass-vs-metal tubes. You mention about the tube destroying the crystals. A 'dodge' I read about in an old radio book was to fit a small torch (flashlight) bulb in series with the xtal. Not only can you watch the glow (telling you that the circuit is oscillating), if the oscillation ...

Hi Bill I've seen a few metal bodied 6L6's on the web e.g. ebay item number 130464982916 and so on. Can you use the metal bodied valves (sorry tubes) in your circuit? I have a number of WWII tubes here (made by Mazda if I recall), and they all tend to be metal bodied, but I guess that was just to in...

Hiya Bill

I've seen photos of your wooden Amplidan (Oaklidan?) before, but I never thought that you'd built it with just a few hand tools. I feel inspired!

I always marvel at the shine on your keys Bill, if there was a prize for shiney then your keys would win every time :D

Least amount of tools required for key making?

Greetings

I was just sitting here musing about how few tools would be needed to make a homebrew key from scratch.

I'm not suggesting a key with turned and knurled adjusters, or anything like as fancy, just a simple key, either straight or paddle etc.

A Homebrew Bug - Made from wood!!!

Hi all

Nothing to do with me, but I found this project on the web and thought it might interest some folks on here.

OK, so it's not a straight key... But it is homebrew.
