Excellent site, enjoyed your history....brought back the good old days.

First call here was KN8VOP, Livonia, Michigan, I think, the late fifties. Had a DX 40, xtal controlled, and an Hallicrafters S108 with a Heathkit QMultiplier.

Later became K8VOP but then discovered girls........I am K9DP now, just an old cw operator.

Thanks for the trip back

God Bless and Take Care,

Great Website!

I am planning on building the 1.8 to 54MHz Low Pass Filter you have designed.

HAM RADIO and HOMEBREWING

Today, in amateur radio much too little  HOMEBREWING is done.

The modern integrated surface technology makes it nearly impossible to do homebrewing of equipments, as the required laboratory is rarely available to HAMs.
But this is quite different for antennas.
Here, homebrewing should be practiced much more, especially, as we can obtain far better antennas by own construction than many of the commercial ones. And at a much, much lower price !

Good success and best 73s

Hi there,

I am VY glad for your description of the LP filter for 50 MHz. Am VY experienced and proff - but tried to look up for a suitable filter for the 4CX1500B PA.

I have NOT finished the project, but the filter will be used for the double 4CX250B stage until finished. It looks like it suits the 1500W power-level fine.

All the best and VY 73 de OZ5IQ, Kim ( Vy active on six 2 x 9 EL M2 )

Thanks for designing equipment that doesn't require a $1000 amplifier tube and a $500 transformer. Many amateurs would like to run high power aren't millionaires! Keep up the great articles!

Thanks for all the info on the Z3801A. It helped me quite a bit in getting mine up. On the suggestion of another local ham I connected the serial port directly to my PC with no level conversion or any other interface between it and the normal "RS-232" connector on the PC. It works just fine. Any thing wrong in this?

Thanks for all the great info you're bringing together. I have a Z3816 that won't sweep to find lock which gives an EFC-err. I suspect, with all the Z3801 and Z3816 info you're getting, that the answer will be hiding in there somewhere once I digest it all. Nice QEX article too. 73.

Great site! I got so excited I ordered a Z3801A, a 48-volt power supply from jameco, and the GPScon software. My plans are to sync my test equipment to the GPS and perhaps find a way to also drive my kenwood TS-2000. If anyone has looked into that I'd appreciate an email. 73 - Juan - WA6HTP

Nice to see a REAL Ham Radio site, where REAL hams still build rather than recite Yaesu, Kenwood & Icom model numbers in conjunction with their Visa card numbers. HI HI You have a good start here, keep up the good work. My OM W7YZQ got me interested in home-brew, and I still like busting my knuckles with hole punches, etc. designing my own goodies.
