    The new revision of my magloop tuner PCB just shipped today from OSH Park. Still working on the autotuning algorithm in the meantime, though. :cool: One of the things I did was probe the OEM tuning box to see what it did in terms of pulse on/off time to have more realistic numbers for fast/slow tune. As expected, the fast tune buttons were basically 100% on, albeit at something like 9.5V instead of the ~12V expected; I'm not sure if the extra voltage mine is putting out will have any impact yet.

    Also, I have some membrane buttons to try out at some point. Once autotune becomes stable, it might make it possible to have an "in-person" interface as well as the Web-based one.

    RBN is your friend. Even when your friends can't hear you.

    Now to get RBN to hear me.... :oops: :p

    Clearly I need to fabricate a tilt over base for my mast. :(

    Are you hand keying Eric or are you using a memory keyer? When trying to get RBN spots, i use the memory keying functions in my radio to send perfect code. Machine code decodes easier than Rob's spastic hand ;)

    I use a generic paddle into the radio with the character speed set around 18 but my farnsworth fist sending slows it down some. Its pretty consistent until I crash or send a wrong letter. Got one decode in CA earlier, so I went looking around on websdr and found a weak trace on the Arizona set. The touch lamp wasn't going all the way bright and the transmatch settings aren't the same, so I suspect its time to bring the big sprig down and clean up whatever's wrong. I used to be able to do it solo....

    I've had no trouble being "decoded" by RBN. Usually records my speed @ 15 - 17 wpm. My problem is being heard in the first place.

    Maybe that's what I meant originally, sorry for the confusion.
