What's up

Busy busy busy.... but still some time to solder...

Pretty much I've been doing some small things:

- Aircraft band receiver (done but partiatly working)
From: http://py2ohh.qrp-br.net/trx/corujinhavhf/corujinhavhf.htm

- Kenwood TH-F7E programing interface (done and working)
From: http://www.geocities.com/azkoza/projects/pg4p/g71cable.html

- Frequency counter from an Chinese store radio (done/broke, done another broke another by static)
From: Chinese store ( also similar do Pound Shop Radio )

- FM receiver (done, working in box but no power is connected to :)
From: An kit laying around in the shack :)

- Loop antenna for MW/SW (done, works, could be improved)
From: Mixed design from web and some experimenting (read: from parts laying around an UTP cable)

- New box for the PSK interface (done, lost 2 screws from the 4 that close the box)
From: Old telecom box

Will post some photos and articles as soon as I find the cable to transfer the images from the camera :)

Other interesting things:

My oscilloscope broke, "caboom", crashed, exploded... I'm trying to fix the bloody thing...
Well it's an advantage, now I have to test things with other methods and learn something new :)

My HF antenna ( some people disagree on what that object is ) broke; well it was make to broke at some point in time, it's just an piece of wire in dipole shape more or less cut'd to the 17m band, hanging on shoe strings between to chemnis pointed est/west... But permit's me to make some nice qso's with only 100w geting over some of those killowat pileup busters that make more electromagnetic noise than an microwave oven! ( you know who I am talking about :)
