Leah Awesome......Congratulations....nice to see teenagers in our hobby !
Love the enthusiam!
Thanks for pushing the hobby up a few notches, we need you.
I used to live in WI. Sturtevant as a child, then Racine...finally up into Eagle River area, in a small town of St. Germain.
Resident of AZ. for past 10 + years, and heading to Idasho to start over with my special lady.
Good luck in ham radio...THANK YOU!
Ham radio is in good hands with you!
Good job Leia so nice to see a young lady tackling ham radio. The G-90 is a good looking radio; I would love to have one in the portable bag. May you have many fun years with ham radio. Do get your Extra, it is nice to have. What would it be like to have a lady in the house that said "hey wow that is a nice antenna" I am not as young as I once was and fall asleep when it gets late. ha ha It would be fun to meet you down the log. 73 from KA7QVE
Good to see that you're having fun making contacts and that's what part of this hobby is all about.
Nice job and good luck getting your extra class license.
When I heard Asher Leah I thought .. oh no not a JAP (I know that sounds rough but Woody Allen AKA Ginsberg would have gone worse ) rabbiting on about her father's G90 but you know it was not too bad... You know you ought to look at getting the guts of a MXP -50 ebay amp which you can buy separately and building it into a real 80 W amp using a HP 7 Amp SMPS as a power source . That would give that little radio some real grunt and it is a project that is hard to fail at. I found this ref to someone on TLV beach who has a VeRY annoying delivery.. in fact like Marge Simpson's daughter as it were. .. Don't emulate her esp in diction .. it's not productive. Cheers from Tim Fidler in the sthn seas who has the paperwork to get on the Ether but... mmm.. is it worth it. And an old ICOM 730 too. https://israelforever.org/interact/multimedia/Video/matkot_madness_on_israels_beaches/
I should do Teshuvah for that Princess comment. never mind I did try to contact L but as I don't have a real call sign just unconverted NZ privileges I don't seem to be able to send internal emls. TEF is attempting to get that sorted out with the forum manager. The guts of an Mxp 50 as I put it seem to be able to be had for about 85 notes from Ebay suppliers. that's to say that the board is avail but it comes with the LPF board which is a POS frankly and especially for use at 70-80 W level. The vendors have those two boards together for around $110 which indicates that an offer of around 85 should get the basic RF board. This is all about adding a PA to the back end of an attenuated G90. I can be contacted via the QRP labs GroupsIO forum. should Leah or anyone else be interested on the details. And with that I think I have done my Teshuvah. Personally I really like the QRVer 1.3 monobander rig but just now (there's a very nice review of it by a Scot on Ytube ) my Flying fifteen sailboat the Hannah Senesh and the oncoming summer take up all my spare time attention .. apart from trying to sort out some of the construction mess ups of the QRPLabs guys. Go well, be happy Timothy E Fidler (NZ, northland)
