Pastime Projects “Remember When” 6V6 Transmitter Kit 40 Meter Special

“REMEMBER WHEN” 6V6 TRANSMITTER KIT

40 Meter Special Edition

Thanks to the suggestion of one of our overseas amateur radio builders, this kit has been packaged as a 40 meter Special Edition. The trend of 40 meter operation using low power cw is growing in popularity. This kit includes the three coils, plate, antenna link, and cathode coil, pre wound and packaged with the kit.
In exchange for the labor and cost to include these prefinished coils, the common 8 penny nails used for coil winding have been excluded from the kit. Also, the extra wire for winding the 80 meter coils is not included.
The coil winding form layout and winding information are, of course, still part of the provided manual. Our design includes Amish prepared oak strips and end pieces, brass screws, “sucker sticks”, and other hardware just like the original. Many of the components are new (and we think more reliable than originals) but the retro look remains.
This kit will operate on 40 meter or 80 meter CW ham radio frequencies with power out in the 2 to 5 watt (or more) range. It is crystal controlled. Change from one band to the other requires different coils be soldered in. The 40 meter version seems most popular among our builders.. The manual that comes with this kit contains step by step instructions for assembly, wiring, and soldering. The vacuum tube is included. The builder will need a crystal and power supply.
To put this kit on the air a license, antenna, and power supply will be required. The builder should be familiar with working around high voltage before applying power to this kit.

SPECIAL DEAL ON 6V6 MC 80 M PASTIME PROJECTS TRANSMITTER KIT

August 9, 2016

Today we are offering a special on our pastime projects 6V6 MC 80 Kit. This kit includes a wound and tested
Output plug in coil tested on 80 meters in our shop. In addition, we will include a new 3.5795 crystal element assembled in a FT-243 or similar style vintage type crystal holder. These are assembled and tested here, both
on a communications monitor and in a completed 6V6MC 80 Kit. These crystals are performing well for us in the
lab here at Pastime Projects, especially using our QRP mode power supply at 200 volts. The crystals have been
tested at 350 VDC with good results, but we are not ready to warranty the crystals at this time. For a limited
time we will also offer free shipping within the US. Delivery may run a little longer depending on demand,
but we are starting to build stock in advance of orders. 73 best wishes Glenn Brown for http://www.pastimeprojects.com and pastimeprojects(at)yahoo(dot)com.

12K5 OSCILLATOR KIT PRICE INCREASE

June 8, 2016

After 10 years of production our little 40 meter do it yourself code practice oscillator kit faces a price increase.  We recently looked at our costs in today’s market as compared to what we paid in 2006.  The increase is effective immediately. You will still get the same pre-wound coil, a new qrp style crystal, and the detailed instruction manual we have strived to improve over the years.  While this is considered a “transmitter” kit, we very
plainly describe its communication ability as “most likely won’t be heard next door”. You kit builders know that it’s still a thrill to follow instructions and build something yourself.
