It was a fun build. It took about 50 hours to build the base kit, and
another 50 hours or so to build the 100 watt amplifier add-on. My
farthest 2 way contact so far (using a compromised antenna) was in
Ukraine (from the eastern US). I'm working on a better antenna now.
I looked at the K2 kit, accessories, the amplifier, and some reviews
-- a high-end performer. Appreciate the offer on the pics, but a
little over my league. I'd need to start with a book on an vacuum amp-
build kit with a pretty narrow reference field, electronically and
parts wise as to assembly and workings. Not so far for a sort of
thing getting into HAM clubs involves, I'd guess from a couple of
people with rcx/trx setups, licenses and in HAM clubs, I've run into.
Guy who initially introduced me to computers, come to think of it,
used to think a lot and hang with HAM crowds. Pulled out a chess
board first time I met him, and next thing I know, we leave for a
electronics shop, I'm learning about using the Intel processor (I had
a chess computer built by a space engineer then and he had an Intel to
pair it against). :<0
This thread takes me back 60 years, by which time I had either made from
scratch, made from kit (Heathkit, EICO) or extensively altered every
piece of audio equipment I owned with the sole exception of pickup
cartridges--pre-solid state of course. It was a lot of fun and the
results varied from wow! to hmmm! If I tried that now I would either
burn my house down or crash the city power supply.
Last stereo upgrade was an ASUS optic card to feed this. . .
Other day I ran into this. . .
which will draw most all the resources to heat up a perfectly
respectable 85-watt P4/3.2gHz, while attempting effectively to negate
much of the first link's functions. Web station broadcasters, sound
and programming engineering, the very people that have taken a fair
share of sparkle out of shortwave receivers the past decade. If it
weren't for ASIO layering over 10 years of PCI architecture latency
restrictions, PCs may have made much more serious inroads into
