    The K7QO Field Day MP3 Audio Files.

    The following MP3 audio files are placed here to give you an opportunity to practice for the ARRL Field Day coming up on Jun 25-26 2016. The audio files consist of only the exchange that you will here when working another station. Their CALL, CLASS and SECTION. These are at the speed ranges indicated and with varying tones to get you used to random placement of CW signals when they call you back after a CQ. Enjoy. And no. You can not have a cheat sheet. Practice on each file until you know you have it correctly copied. That is the purpose. Practice. Practice. Practice.

    The K7QO Assembly Guides for the 1W Transceiver.

    The following manual(s) are being developed at this time. One guide for experienced builders with small detailed information. The second guide, when I get to it, will be verbose and full of details and experiments. Should be ready be end of June 2016.

    This guide last updated June 5, 2016. Am on one week vacation away from the lab, so the steps are being listed without actually building at this time. I'll build when I get back next week. You take your chances if you get ahead of me.

    K7QO Legacy Documents

    The following are documents and work done some time ago. Please realize that some of the URLs, companies and other information may be gone from the planet Earth. This is here for those that might have unbuilt kits or have one that is not working. Also building techniques requiring tools that may no longer be available from the original sources or manufacturers. Please don't ask me to find things. If you can find it using google, then it is most likely that I can not help either. Good luck..
