Official K6WHP Project List

Well, since my exit to the Fields of Elysium is imminent, I am taking a fresh look at this list with a new perspective: stuff to keep me off the streets during retirement! Of course, this will be intermixed with the effort to get myself back in shape, hiking, spending time with my beloved War Bride, and USAF Auxiliary work. But, this all will be a labor of love -- as The Paramecium disappears in the rear view!

First order of Business: start up this blog again and get the "after" pictures posted for the signal generator and the W8DIZ 1-watter kits and other stuff that need freshening up! But then, in no special order:

1. Build regens:
  • WBR regen (Far Circuit board).
  • Kitchin Scout regen (Far Circuit board).
  • (Waste of Time!)
  • Breadboard Radio kit board. (Marvelous little kit! Recommend Highly!)
  • WBR regen built with QRPme squares like AA7EE's effort.
2. QRP XCVR kits:
  • 2N-2-40 build. (Scheduled in January with N6VCW.)
  • 2N-2-20 build.
  • Kits-and-Parts 1Watter 20m kit.
  • Kits-and-Parts 1Watter 15m kit.
  • Kits-and-Parts Amp board x 2.
3. Rebuild/refurb HW-7s; make into Dick's HW-7X model! See if a cottage industry can be developed!
4. Restore & calibrate 485. (Done with help from WB6JDH!)
5. Develop CLARA RDF project. Organize pig choir class.
6. Develop PSK-31 proficiency. (7200, 706, 817, etc.)
7. Build third K-42. Relegate until N6VCW replaces parts. (No rush!)
8. Build third NorCal SWR meter. (Need box.)
9. CAP comm weekend/syllabus.
10. Get TS-323 running. (Wnat the f**k was that?)
11. Ensure isolation transformer is wired correctly. Get AC/Iso XFMR stuff squared away!
12. Reload .30-06 ammunition.
12A. Reload .308 ammunition.
12B. Reload .223 ammunition.
12C. Reload .45 ammunition.
13A. Get Savage Model 10 and PA 4-14x44 scope zeroed.
13B. Get M-1s zeroed.
15. Get rid of old VHF radio. Gone Goose!
15A. Get rid of old CB radios. ..ditto!
16. Wire aviation head set. (Back on the schedule)
16. Build junction box/adapter for aviation head set.
17. Integrate Icom SM-6 mic with K-2.
18. Build VK antenna analyzer.
18A. Develop Arduino Antenna Analyzer.
19. Develop satellite proficiency. This relegated to "fun in the sun".
20. Build G5RV with ladder line from remnants.
21. Build tube xmtr and rvcr kits. (Need boxes and need to build power supply.)
22. Finish variable power supply with meters. Willed to N6ABV who did a beautiful job!
23. Build DC voltmeter/Ammeter monitor for FD.
24. Add DCV/DCA meters to Astron RS-20A.
25. Build ESR meter using Simpson DC 0-5 mA meter if it does not sell on eBay. Gone Goose!
26. Replace Battery in HP 5.5 digit DMM and have it calibrated.
27. Calibrate Fluke 8800A DMM.
28. Conduct CLARA antenna clinics with SO-239 and J-Pole and trap building sessions.
29. Conduct CAP ham radio "Elmering" class. See above re pig choir.
30. Restore and align Realistic DX-160. Completed and eBayed!
31. Re-cap Realistic DX-160. See above!
32. Tek 310 restore. Sent to bud on AARF!
33. Build audio amplifier for speakers.
34. Package NorCal keyer kit with audio amp, speaker, and controls.
35. Take anohter run at the TS-180S and see if FDick and I can figure out what John could not!
