Ed,We, the N9HF contest team, was
attempting to work you when your amp failed! We called 2 or
3 times and you then posted on PJC that you had an amp
failure! Our condolences to you.Dave N9HF

Computer problems kept me off the moon yesterday-evening.
Com ports keep
changing and soundcard lost modulation to radio. Move s/c
to different USB
jack and finally thought to use my K3 Utility program to
find the correct
com-port. Use to be com-5 then it was com-4 then it moved
to com-6 and
finally found the radio on com-8. Time to retire the old
Ran from MR at 0140utc Jan. 21 till about 0345utc when new
2m amplifier quit
putting out RF. Quick check of bias (OK) and 50v B+ (not
the 50v FET switch failed (probably shorting to ground).
worked six stations for the contest:
Also MAP65 is 2-MHz off frequency, my Hpol preamp appears
failed (no gain),
and the SWR protection ckt in the amp was triggering too
soon. Suppose to
shut down at 100w reflected but was triggering at 50w.
Been off eme for almost a year. Typical "start
Only getting 800w on Hpol and 700w on Vpol so that is
another thing to look
into (expected 1000-1100w).
New azimuth rotator seems to work OK. Wired my RazTrak
auto tracking system
to handle both 2m and 6m pointing. Still in test mode for
digital elevation encoder is nice (MAB25). Its on the
6m-eme array, too.
Finally, the 6m LFA antenna picks up nearly two s-units less
local nose than
my 3-element 6m yagi (measured with the same radio).
Waiting for tower guys
to help with stuck 6m azimuth rotator.
Sorta kinda back on eme!
