Re: Marti frequency control module temperature

Chuck: Your question and Bob's comment got me scratchin my head. Did some real quick googling and found this. It might help. "For instance, a crystal may be specified as having a frequency tolerance of ±50 PPM @ +25°C in a frequency stability of ±50PPM over an operating temperature. This would ...

Re: Gates MO-3759 Diode Rectifier - "DCC. Wire"

There was also DSC wire (double silk covered wire) Those letters were bouncing around in my head as I read the initial post. I googled it and found a UK located company selling enameled DSC wire and a synthetic strand covering. Ahhhh, the good old days. Anyone remember winding a coil on an Oatmeal c...

Re: Gates MO-3759 Diode Rectifier - "DCC. Wire"

SCC, DCC! Wow, it's really been a long time since I heard those terms used. I remember running into that kinda wire back when I was a mere child!!!! Wasn't a whole lot of fun to strip and work with. Not only did you have the smell of rosin and melting solder, you also got the burning cloth. Fossil

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

RE: magnetic thingy........

Well, there is another trick and it is bees wax. I took an old PLSTIC 35mm film cannister and scooped the toilet plumbing wax seal stuff into it. Works great when magnet sometimes won't. Noncorossive.

Hi Shane:

Ham buddy of mine has had one for some time and it has been reliable for him. No issues that I am aware of.

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

Open the controller card door, remove cards, go after p/s. That is all I can come up with. As I recall, access on right side of card cage by p/s was pretty tight. We might have used mirrors and voodoo to get at it. I seem to recall that we needed to access (from rear of rack) the left hand side of t...

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

Yes, you can certainly do it without removing it from the rack, but it ain't gonna be fun. As they say....grin and bear it. I might suggest speaking in tongues while doing the replacement, it will help relieve the stress.

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

Inside the controller chassis, kinda buried on the right rear side is a small power supply. I think it croaked. If you have an old Starguide Sat rcvr laying around, it uses the exact same power supply. It will not be real physically easy to replace as it is tight in there, but it is plug-in. You wil...

He forgot to mention mirrors :lol: . Well, no luck so far. Every thing I find for calibration services are for pressure gauges.

FIELD INTENSITY METER CALIBRATION

A friend is looking for a company to calibrate a Nems Clarke Field meter. Does anyone know of a company besides Potomac that can do the work?
