Some Fooling Around After The Net

Phil, KC2DXM and Jerry WA2FNQ on 3.710 AM

This QSO took place on 4/20/08 after the OCARC Net. Phil was received using a Gonset Super 6 converter ahead of a Sony SRF A-100 AM stereo radio. The radio was in the independant sideband mode so the static is in... yes stereo!! This was recorded through my station monitoring system, the same set up used for the SSB recordings.

My transmitter is a Johnson Adventurer plate modulated by a very modified Eico 730 modulator This is run through the same SB 200 amplifier used for SSB. The audio to this transmitter is the same audio that goes to the IC745. This is definately NOT a set up for use under conditions when the band becomes populated!! What feeds the monitor system is the demodulated AM from the transmitter matrixed with the de-emphsized stereo difference signal from the point of modulation in the transmitter.
