Palstar Tuner and W4HE Blue Bird House

Palstar tuner now at the cottage.

















W4HE Blue Bird house. Look closely in the center of the white circle. The house
opening is approximately 6' off the ground. Hopefully the Blue Birds will like the
open flyway out to the west.

Echo

This morning after everyone signed, I was testing from Tuscaloosa--just keying the transmitter in CW.  I noticed I was hearing an echo when I unkeyed.  The following audio wave shows the key down as a relatively straight line followed by receiver white noise and the return tone.  You can hear a slight hum when I go key down.  Click here to listen to the wave file shown below.

Marketing at Work

The English says "Made in U.S.A."

The French says "Fabrique aux E.U"

So...if you're a French or European buyer it's made in
the European Union. If you live in the U.S. it's made
in the U.S.

It's on of the clever "FO" batteries! Flexible Origin!

ps
Then again it could that E.U. stands for Etats Unis "United States"

Looking at this more carefully, I am thinking Phil's camp site is indicated by the Green arrow. What say Phil?
