In reply to G3CWI:
How bizarre! I’ve been thinking about the PP3 challenge this week and I was thinking about digging up this thread to see if any PP3 QSO’s were still happening.
Due to this years successes in my home brewing activities (along with some failures!), I’m seriously considering building a rig so that I can join in with the PP3 challenge.
I’m not going to be pushing any boundaries, I’m thinking along the lines of a RockMite configured for 9V operation. I’m thinking it will be built Manhattan style, using pretty much standard circuitry with a few tweaks. The main thing I need to decide is whether to pull a 7.032MHz crystal to 7.032MHz or whether I go for 30m with the rig somewhere near 10.118 MHz. Not sure which band would be best.
Well done with your latest efforts Richard, I’m assuming that the rig you are using is still your ‘Top Gun Special’. Only 46 QSO’s to go then!
