OK1DXK - Sputnik TX (2 rod tubes)

Oct 5: I have also tested a Sputnik TX. Two tube TX (1Ж29Б and 1П24Б). Power is almost 1 W on 7 MHz and 0.5 W on 10 MHz. The TX is supplied from 12V power supply or ACCU. Anode voltage is obtained by step-up, and filament voltage by step-down inverters. Keying by means of relay switching anode voltage (the blue and green PCBs). I have made 1 QSO during the test today, 2016-10-05: 12:44 UTC, 7.031 MHz, OM3EK, Miro, Kosice 589/589 As RX I used K2 receiver. Now, I must build the TX into a box, in order to made it a little bit more portable. 72 de Jiri OK1DXK

PA0PJE "Sputnik" TX on two "rod" valves

PA0PJE "Vanguard" TX's on 20 and 40 m

In October 4 I spent the day from about 0800 to 1500 utc sending CQ's alternatively on 14 MHz with the Vanguard Ge TX and with the Sputnik
1P24B-W TX on 21 MHz but conditions seemed to be too poor to make any contact with the two. All activity was from the "Fort bij Edam" (JO22MM)
using my GP antenna. I even did not see any RBN reports. I used PA6FBE as callsign, which is used for the activity on the Fort.

UA1CEX/S - Henry Tempo One valves TRX 1 watt produced in 1970

October 5 - Ни один скиммер даже не обнаружил моё QRPP/p присутствие ни на 14060, ни на 21060.
Маломощную лампочку подключал, не светится, но как-то накаливается, есть какая-то мощность, невеликая.
72 de UA1CEG/V

I was QRV today in the late afternoon with one GF45011 transistor made by Western Electric in April of 1961. This is the same Germanium transistor type that was used in the original "Vanguard 1" satellite.
 
My GF45011 oscillator/transmitter produces 20mW on 21.060MHz. While receiving this oscillator becomes my receiver beat-frequency signal source. My Morse code keyer switches the 21MHz oscillator between the antenna and receiver via a miniature DPDT electromechanical relay. The single-balanced direct-conversion mixer, or product-detector, uses a pair of 1N4148 diodes, followed by a two-stage audio amplifier. The antenna is an end-fed 44m wire erected 10m off the ground.
I was QRV too late to hear any DX signals today. I also did not make any QSOs, but I hope to be on-the-air after breakfast tomorrow morning

Мой клон - Спутник-1 собран по схеме "Мичиган ММ".
Сегодня заменил 416 на П607А - возбуждает резонаторы на 14 и 21 МГц с выходной
мощностью на эквиваленте 50 Ом около 400 и 300 мВт соответственно.
Проверена работа в режиме телеграфного и цифрового маяка.
Питается от Ли-По аккума 1000 мА\час. Есть лэд-индикаторы питания и манипуляции,
снабжен стрелочным индикатором выходной мощности.
На вес получился тяжеловат - в космос не полетит.
Следующий клон будет в гермокорпусе, с подзарядкой аккума от солар панель.
В сообщении маяка пропишу телеметрию и выкину его на орбиту LEO (Low Elevation Orbite)
