Wow, what a great HAMfest.

another NEScaf on the air

Thanks to you folks back on the East Coast, Portales, NM is now the QTH of another NEScaf on the air.  Took me about a week to round up a project box and a few odds and ends to round out the project and a few hours of enjoyable soldering/wiring.  I've run several audio filters over the years and the NEScaf is on the money for CW - turns my TT Pegasus into a FB cw machine.

NESCAF with Stereo CW filter together

Hi all,

did anybody tried the famous NESCAF combined together with known Stereo CW filter on the air please? I am interesting in the behavior of these two audio effects at the same time on the rig...

Winter Meeting in Nashua, NH – February 2013

The February meeting was sensational as many people from far distances came to the Holiday Inn at Killarney's Pub in Nashua, NH to celebrate the dawning of a new QRP radio year. In addition to the sunshine, snow lay on the ground and a cold bite permeated the air, but these were mitigated by the comradery and warmth among those attending our "spring" meeting. A complete photo album of smiling faces, with thanks to our faithful photographer Bob Schmeichel - N1RXV, is viewable at
