There will be a “Construction Night” on Friday 20th March at the Port Seaton Community Centre.
The idea is to build something which can be completed and tested in one night so we have to keep it pretty simple. The construction project will be a fairly simple kit which allows you to build a step down variable voltage regulator. It could be used to power any low voltage device or you could even make your own phone charger.
It will accept either AC or DC inputs between 5 – 30 V and gives a constantly variable output of between 2V – 30V at 1 Amp Max.
Whether or not you need one it should be a good night and you can either sharpen up your soldering skills or help out those who are less experienced.
If you are interested in attending please let me know as the kits have to be ordered in advance. For those who don’t already know my email is firstname.lastname@example.org (leaving out the nospam bit)
The cost will be £4 for the kit plus the usual contribution towards the hire of the room. Tea, coffee, tools and test equipment are all included.
I already have 7 people signed-up to attend and places are limited so if you are interested please don’t hang about and get in touch ASAP.
If it gets any wider you might be able to ask them on FM.
I’m in Glenrothes, but not me. I’ve not done ft8 or any digital modes on 2m. I’ve done 6m, but not higher. MM7MTB
Certainly south of Fife but no ft8 here
In Midlothian; but not been on air today. MM0LBF
Not just me then - yes saw the same thing here (Pathhead) - tried pre amp off, att on, swung beam to get weaker signal - no difference no decode. Did hear a 'thump' about 2 sec before - it caused the harmonics and them distorted and wide audio. Could not take a guess at who it was - not seen anyone with that signal strength recently.
