    Conditions for listening to shortwave radio have not been very good lately but I thought I would try testing the Sony SW77 against the Tecsun Pl-680 for reception. I guess I will have to try at another time.

    YouKits SK 1A and FX 9A on SSB CW 40 meters
    VE3FAL1_Fred



    Published on Mar 4, 2017
    Here is a quick comparison of the YouKits 40 meter monoband rig against the FX-9A. Note the close comparison of audio even with the external speaker on the SK-1A. The cw signals seemed a bit louder on the SK-1A.

    Fixing RFI QRM from a Desk Lamp with a LED Conversion.
    HamAndShortwaveRadio



    Published on Mar 4, 2017
    Fixing RFI QRM from a Desk Lamp with a LED Conversion.
    I love my magnified desktop work lamp , but it has the problem of making RFI - QRM noise when I place the fluorescent tubed head near any radio receiver that I am working on.
    This noise is typical of many fluorescent lamps.
    In todays video i remove the original QRM noisy lamp and replace it with no QRM DC powered LED panels.
    These 12V 36 LED COB panels are cheap to buy , and with 8 of them fitted I get nearly the same light output power of the original tube lamp.

    8 of these COB 12V panels when wired in parallel use about 1.8 Amps of power.

    This is a great conversion to do for all Ham Radio , or other Radio hobbyists that work on RFI sensitive equipment.

    HRN 309: Small Fortune, from the HamCation
    HamRadioNow



    Published on Mar 5, 2017
    HamRadioNow had a booth in the 'high-priced' exhibitor area of the 2017 Orlando HamCation (thanks to the generosity of Chairman Peter Meijers... and a cancellation by another vendor... because I hadn't arranged for a booth this year). That's the area where they set up drapes behind and between the booths, supply AC power, and you're likely to be surrounded by truly 'commercial' vendors rather than flea-market bins. I set up the SIB (Studio in a Booth) there and recorded several interviews.

    I had one of those classy neighbors on either side: TuneMatic staffed by owner Jim Trapani KA2MBE on one side, and Arlan Communications which manufacturers RadioSport Headsets, staffed by Dave Bottom WI6R on the other. They both were doing brisk business throughout the fest, but things slowed down enough late on Sunday to bring them together for a conversation about small business in Amateur Radio.

    Both sell high-quality, somewhat expensive products (let's say they're more than an 'impulse buy' price), and I was a little surprised that neither had any complaints based on the general characterization of hams as 'cheap'. Their products sell well, with plenty of customers who appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into them. Dave said he has to put a cap on growth to avoid outstripping resources.

    Their stories lend an insight into the origin and operation of at least these two small ham radio businesses.
