Any info of anybody trying a rewind on the existing ferrite bar in a
PL-300 with 40/44 Litz ?? - poss an 81 turns setup just like a PL-310 or
I rewound my PL-310 with 81 turns - shifted to a sweet spot while tuned
to 1700kc and the result was a much improved high end reception compared to
stock wind !--- ZOWIE !!
I have a PL-380 ver. 2 on order - but would poss like to dig into my
PL-300 first !
I found an easy way to remove the ferrite bar out of my PL-310 was to use
a large box cutter knife and drag it lengthwise under the bar from one
end to the other while pressing inward toward the PCB (numerous times) - cuts
all the old litz wire on the bottom side of the bar to shreds - but eventually
it cuts thru the contact cement under the bar - pull out the bar - clean it up
- rewind with 40/44 Litz - find a sweet spot at 1700kc on the bemch before
installation - and set back in with a coouple dabs of rubber cement
I wrapped the bar with 65 lb cardstock paper snug - just snug enuff to
still be able to shift back & forth on the bar - then start winding with
40/44 - easy job indeed !

During this weekend when many of us are watching the Vancouver Olympics
competition (a three-hour drive from here), we wish to honor an Ohio DXer
who has had podium-worthy success in receiving Canadian provinces with
barefoot Ultralight radios-- Alex Kaminski.
Alex recently submitted documentation to our Ultralight Awards
Committee for receiving four Canadian provinces from Ohio, and Rob Ross
and I take great pleasure in awarding him the Four Canadian
Provinces Heard Award, using John Bryant's original artwork. We hope
that Alex will continue to have great success in his Ultralight DXing, and
thank him for supporting our program to honor John's legacy.
73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)
