Other items of interest:
On July 20th, Gene AB9GK, and Dave N8KQS, went to the
“Shack” at St. Norbert and checked the DX3000 and the peripheral equipment to
see how the settings are for possible use as a Special Event station. The Antenna Switch worked well as well as the
SWR/Power meter. Had a learning curve for setting the power levels. There was a
menu adjustment to keep the CW setting from coming on with the SSB mode… this
had kept the power output setting from showing up on the front of the radio.
Had to set the mic gain down a little… the microphone is quite sensitive.. The auto turner worked well on 20 and 40
meters.. (did not try any others – there is not a 75 meter coil on the antenna)
It looks as if the radio is set for phone
operation … give it a try….
you have a item of interest such as a new piece of equipment, software, gadget,
or power supply that you want to let
operators know about, send it to the editor of this newsletter. Then it will be
shared to those on the list..
