Power-supplies are definitely on-topic,
especially to run lots of ultralights, which
many of us seem to have...

So: are there other sources to substantiate
the Cold Fusion reports by Wayne Green?

"Cold fusion, despite every effort to stop it, has been proven. Professor Jim Patterson
demonstrated a cold fusion cell at an energy conference with one watt of electricity going in
and a thousand watts of heat coming out for the duration of the show. The fuel is nickel,
which is transmuted to copper.

Also, imagine a shoebox-sized battery that can power a car for 500 miles!
It's already been invented and patented, but a well-kept secret."

Hi Ray,
I'm not a ham, but have found 160 meters interesting to monitor. I never hear much on it, but there was a lot of activity a couple months ago on a special event contest. I'm sure, like the MW band, it's a winter time band. Are you very active on it?

I have listened to the AM band on and off since I was in grade school (more than a couple of days back) and remember hearing stations from all over, so this is peaking my interest to be more active in this part of the radio hobby.

I really like all the work describing the FSL antennas and building several and expermenting with them is high on my projects list and hope I can add something usefull in return.

I currently have a Grundig G3 radio and find the sensitivity is alright (not really anything to compare with right now). I will work on my logging so my chicken scratches may make some sense.

Anyhow, look forward to exploring this radio-fun hobby.

A list of the 12 Alaskan, 2 Hawaiian and 3 South Pacific NDB's received

the MP3 file names posted in MediaFire. You should have a reasonable
chance of receiving several of these Longwave beacons on the Big Island
if you can DX just prior to sunrise, but since the South Pacific NDB's
have tricky propagation, it's a tossup each morning as to whether they
will make an appearance. If they do, they are never very strong on
Ultralight radios, and will usually drop out like a rock after about 5
minutes of weak code. Sometimes the west coast NDB-DXers like Steve and
Don will hear them on a morning when Mike Tuggle in Hawaii can't get
them at all. Weird!

The full Medium Wave DXpedition report (including a detailed list of
the 16 New Zealand, 15 Australian,1 Tahitian and 1 Fijian loggings
with MP3 recording links) has been posted at

@ Bob & Kevin

I will actually be staying in the park only about 150 yards from the
crater rim (closer than Volcano House) in a house reserved for visiting
scientists and officials of the Hawiian Volcano Observatory.

Plug these coordinates into Google Earth to see: 19.424021, -155.255874

There is an overlook 150 yards to the WSW of the house that sits atop a
350 ft or so cliff that overlooks the caldera and lava lake. Which
makes me wonder what affect, if any, a lake of molten rock would have
on RF propagation/noise? I did a little research on volcanic soils and
found that when wet (this area gets rain nearly every day) they are
nearly as conductive as clayey soils. But that doesn't tell me what
affects solid lava rock and molten lava would have on propagation. I
imagine it would be small since the actual lake is about 3km SW of the
cliff (near the smoke in the Google image). I think 350 ft height the
cliff itself might help more with reception that anything else...Talk
about cliffside DX Gary!

I will be in Volcano for two nights in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
where it is sure to be very RFI quiet. The last night I will be on the
upper floors of a hotel in Hilo. I will be bringing my PL-380 with 7.5"
loopstick and probably my inductively coupled 25' vertical/wire setup
(minus the aluminum tent stakes).

Some of the targets on the list I made are NDBs in Hawaii, Guam,
American Samoa.

I will not have time to get to the beach while in Volcano...I will be
next to the volcano ....go figure and in what I think will be a very
RFI quiet location. The hotel in Hilo sits on the ocean...I may be able
to hang something off the balcony. Should be quieter than my recent
trip to Anchorage but not quiet - Hilo is far smaller than Anchorage.

I will most likely only be able to DX at night after work. It gets
dark there around 6:50pm

Any tips or suggestions of what to look for? NDBs or maybe distant
DX in addition to what I put in my DX target file?

Re: 7.5 inch loopstick

K8HU and ex-NMN
 

Thanks for the note back, Gary.

I read your thorough and appreciated construction articles using the "updated" litz wire size and have am considering to build an MW loopstick and also one for LF.  Have located both the Amidon ferrite and Litz wire.  The other parts are available locally.

Am wondering and perhaps you might have some insight on the answer to this question.  Right now, I'm using crate loops along with a 4' open frame loop.  Do you have a feeling as to how the performance of 7.5" loopstick might compare to say a 1 or 2 Crate, Crate-Loop ?

Certainly, the loopstick is more compact and easier to manuver.  Especially if one were in a situation where....  ohhhh say... the DX'er were standing on a wide spot in the road which was sited on the side of a cliff on the west coast and might need to move if a car came too close....  Just speculating here, of course.     :-)

Seriously, in watching your videos on the FSL, it seems as though (those) ferrite antennas have a much better S/N ratio that the loop you compared them to.  On the other side of the question, I'm one who also values the capture area of 100 + feet of wire on the typical MW air core loop.

Your thoughts ?

The construction articles for the PL-360 plug-in 7.5" MW and LW
loopsticks and the PL-380 fixed 7.5" LW loopstick are in the
Ultralightdx file section, but I haven't yet had time to write the
construction article for the new PL-380 7.5" fixed MW loopsick (70 turns of 330/44 Litz wire on the 7.5" Type 61 Amidon ferrite rod).
After the coil is wound, the mechanical assembly part would be the same
as the procedure described in the PL-380 fixed 7.5" LW loopstick
article, however. I'm also constructing several of the orange plastic
loopstick frames for those who would like to follow my procedure of
gluing the frame to the top of the PL-380's top front cabinet surface,
so that the new 7.5" loopstick can be used in a highly portable manner.

I live in an apartment and was actually searching for ideas for a 160M antenna for qrp work where I do not have reasonable access to the normally required acreage.

Re: Upcoming Trip to Big Island of Hawaii - Any DX Tips?

Guy Atkins
 

When I spent a week on the island of Rarotonga in 1993, SW & MW reception was sadly very poor the entire time. I had hoped to snag Niue which is about 650 mi. distant, but not even a peep out of it. I would hear the stronger Sydney and Melbourne MW outlets for a few hours each night but at a mediocre level, and I occasionally caught 738 Tahiti but also at a poor to fair level. I tried various random wires 100-150 feet in length, with the Grundig Satellit 500 and smaller portables I had along for the trip, but results were the same with every combination.

I found it hard to blame the results on poor propagation for an entire week. In correspondence with Patrick Martin in Oregon after the trip, he speculated that the highly volcanic soil affected reception, as he'd heard of someone else encountering the same thing from "Raro". However, I've read about others who had much better luck. This compilation article by Paul Ormandy highlights visits made by various DXers to Rarotonga:  http://radiodx.com/nzrdxl/index2.php?option=com_content&do_pdf=1&id=296   (includes my own investigation on the disappearance of R. Cook Islands from the SW bands).

So, maybe it was just lousy conditions all of that week in "paradise", rather than a QTH on an island of lava rock?  Hmm... I think I need to make a return trip to investigate further  :^)

Re: Si4734 loopstick auto tune

Will <will_k53@...>
 

Information for anyone interested.

There is a shield for Ardiuno micro controllers with a Si4735 chip on it and the chip is fully controllable from the Ardiuno.  Build your own UltraLight! Then DX to your own delights.

The only difference between Si4734 and -35 is that -35 has RDS.

Cheers
Will

Michael,

It isn't spurious. The Si4734 chip does have a built in loopstick auto tuning mechanism, but for some reason I have to do 'up the dial' signal peaking, first, before the mechanism engages. I do not know the reason.

Note: Simply putting my variable capacitor at miminum does NOT do the trick. I actually have to peak the highest frequency signal I can. By the way, 89:25 means 89 dBu signal strength and 25 S/N ratio.

I got the same effect on longwave, with the 300 uH loopstick. Usually I use a 3600 uH loopstick on longwave.

Vimal, I have to run right now. Hopefully later I can post something that's more useful to you.
