I use quite a few Fibox IP65 enclosures and one of them had the lid screws missing when it was delivered. I bought it from Conrad electronics and they replaced the whole box. So I have a box with no lid screws. I would like to use it but I cannot find these screws anywhere. Farnell don't seem to have them, Conrad don't have them. An email to the Dutch Fibox distributor was ignored.
Does anyone know where I can get them?
1296MHz has always been a shared band.
Firstly with radar systems and after WRC-2000, RNSS (of which the EU,
Galileo system is one) a Primary wideband and weak-signal service. There are
allegations, mostly unproven, of interference to Galileo ground stations by
There has been a bit of shuffling around, an earlier French instigated paper
to CEPT being rejected, but 1296MHz is on the agenda at the CEPT meeting in
Ankara this week. There is political pressure on EU administrations from the
EU commission amid a general climate of FUD.
The IARU position is:
. 1296 MHz band: IARU has asked its member societies to discuss with their
regulator the best way of resolving concerns about a few cases of
interference to the Galileo navigation system that are specific to its 'E6'
sub-band at 1260-1300 MHz from amateur signals. It is IARU's firm view that
this should be properly studied in CEPT, rather than proposed as an agenda
item for WRC-23.
IARU has an observer in this meeting so we should have a clear view by the
end of Friday. When I have a clear picture I will repost it on here - just
as I will concerning the 144MHz issue.
We have a set of pages to inform radio amateurs on the detail of the
proposals and the amateur responses. Please scroll down to Proposed WRC-23
* Does this mean the 23cm band will be gone in the months to come
DEFINITELY NOT!!! This is a long term issue which is unlikely to change the
radio regulations until WRC-23 and even in the very worse-case there would
be a transition period. Sadly the AMSAT newsletter seems to repeat some of
the FUD from the Galileo project.

Does this mean the 23cm band will be gone in the months to come, and we
should be building something else ??
Another Threat to the Amateur Radio 23cm Band
A joint paper by France, Lithuania, Malta, Slovenia and
The Netherlands for the European Conference of Postal and
Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) Conference Preparatory
Group (CPG) meeting on August 26-30, attacks the continued use by
Radio Amateurs of its 1240-1300 MHz band.
Galileo is close to full operational capability and its E6 signals in
the band 1260-1300 MHz will support new services such as the free-to-
use Galileo High Accuracy Service, and also robust authentication,
expected to be used by a variety of applications including autonomous
vehicles and the Internet of Things (IoT).

I'm searching for a Murata model D1U-W-2000-48-hb2c server style power
supply. It puts out 50 volts and 12 volts with 230 VAC input.
There were a couple listed on eBay a couple months ago but no longer. It
appears that the diode array has gone up in smoke in the present one and
without a schematic or parts list fixing it seems impossible.
If anyone has an actual wiring diagram of the I0JXX amplifier that would
also be swell which might make substitution of a different supply possible.
Thanks for looking!

Just a reminder that I'd like to update the 432 WAC database on the 1st of
September and make it available to this list. The current version (July)
is attached for your convenience in checking for necessary corrections
Just a reminder:
I’ll be putting Wyoming/DN54 on September 1st MR 1530z
This is an extremely quiet location with a superb moonrise horizon.
I have elevation ability to 50 degrees.
See http://kb7qgrid.blogspot.com for details.
Plans are afoot for Nevada or South Dakota.
I use my FCD+Pro with Linrad and MAP65. Linrad takes care of setting
the FCD (and changing frequency of it as you use the Wide Graph in
MAP65 as well)

"We don't just make 'em. We use 'em!"
I saw this notice yesterday from IARU R1. This coming weekend!
The 2019 145 MHz Russian EME Contest
SRR invites radio amateurs from all over the world to take part in the new EME contest.
The 145 MHz Russian EME Contest is intended to encourage worldwide activity on 2m
moonbounce, support of VHF activity in remote regions of Russia and around the globe. Each
different DXCC country and each Russian region form a multiplier.
1. Contest Date, Band and Modes
August 24th 00:00 to August 25th 23:59 UTC (48 hours), 2m Digital and CW
2. Sections and Awards
No sections. All participated stations will get certificates. The first 10 places will get awards. The
winner will get the special trophy prize. All EME-contest novices will get stickers on their
certificates. According to the organizers decision the stations with a small ERP which showed good
results will also be marked by awards.
For the purpose of the contest only one scoring per valid QSO with the same other callsign can be
logged. No other limitations. Use of loggers and cluster is allowed.
4. Contest Exchange
For a valid EME QSO, both stations must have copied all of the following via the EME radio path:
4.1 Both callsigns from the other station.
4.2 Signal report from the other station.
4.3 R, from the other station, to acknowledge complete copy of 4.1 & 4.2.
Logs should be in a usual logbook format. Exported files from logging software are acceptable.
Each QSO: Date/Time, Callsign, Report sent, Report received.
Bottom line: Total QSO points, Total multiplier, total claimed score.
6. QSO Points
1 point for each QSO completed (random = sked).
Each different DXCC country and each Russian region (…1A, …1C, …1N, etc. – see list of
Russian regions on www.rdxc.org/asp/pages/regions.asp) is a multiplier.
8. Total Score
Score = Total of QSO points * Multiplier.
Using here a very big and heavy Toroid from German company called Dierking .. the type is HV-4
It seems to have a short on the primary side .. it does give me the correct amount of HV .. but as soon I start to draw a bit current my primary automatic fuse trips ( 16A ) .
I will replace that automatic fuse .. inspect the soft start.. etc .. was just wondering .. anybody having seen this kind of trouble with q HV-4 toroid from Dierking ??
Never had issues with HV transformers before ( never used a toroid before ..)
This transformer worked fine for a few weeks but issues started during perseids ..

I am preparing for back surgery and I need to liquidate some equipment to help cover costs.
I have for sale a TS-2000 or TS-2000X (I will sell one or the other, but not both), $800 for the TS-2000 and $1200 for the TS-2000X. The TS-2000 has the slow start “feature” when using JT modes via the data port that causes digital modes to ramp up their power over a couple seconds.
I also have 4X M2 2M9SSB’s with a M2 4 port power divider, home brew H frame and LMR-400 jumper cables. $1000 + buyer pays actual shipping costs.
All equipment is in perfect working condition and was in service up until about a month ago .
You can see the array along with the TS-2000 on my QRZ page, https://www.qrz.com/db/KA7KDX
Paypal is accepted. International shipping can be negotiated, but shipping/duties may make it cost prohibitive.
Please respond to my email, brians(a)fl240.com<mailto:email@example.com> if interested and I can send more pictures on request.
