NoGa - North Georgia QRP Club

Build Day Two

Ten lucky NoGaNaughts gathered at Steve, AA4BW's to continue the NoGa Build adventure.  In this session, Steve designed a semi-qsk T/R switch with variable delay and transmit indicator LED.  Steve was good enough to provide all of the parts (except the delay pot), the enclosure (predrilled) and another wonderful set of instructions.  Once again, everyone left with a working Guppy.  This is a great addition to the NoGaStation that is developing.  The first session produced a working transmitter.  Plans are already in place for Build Day 3 in which we will build a Vectronics receiver to round out the operating components of the NoGaStation.  Discussion is already underway for Build Day 4 where we will build an antenna tuner which will really round out a complete NoGaStation.
