File - FT100 Group Guidelines.txt


The FT100 Group averages around 150-200 messages per month.
Because the volume of messages is rather large, I would
like to remind everyone of a few long-standing FT100
guidelines to follow. Most of you do so already.

Look at the home page for the FT100 Group for links to the
FAQ, Knowledge Base, and Manuals for the FT-100/D.

1. Civility. (This is practiced well by our members!)

2. Please sign your messages with name and call sign, e.g.,
Fred - W1XYZ.

3. When replying to a posting (message), kindly delete all
unnecessary text including the trailing text. Only leave the text
from the prior message to which you are replying ... <snip> the
rest. If one desires to read the entire thread, the command [Up
Thread] at the top of the message can be used to read the entire
discussion. Remember also that a lot of members have slow
connections and some even pay connect time or characters rx/tx. This
also helps the clarity of your message.

4. When replying to a post, please decide if your comment should be
to the entire group of over 3,000 or directly to the author of the
post. When you click on "Reply," it goes to everyone. To reply
direct (simplex), you should click on the email address following the
user ID line at the top of the post. Notice that only a part is
shown for privacy. Also, please think about if what you are about to
post in reply to the group really should be to the group ... replies
like "I sure do agree with that" doesn't add much to the group. Send
thoughts like those direct to the poster please.

5. It is fine for members to post something for sale or wanted to
buy ... once per item(s). All questions and offers to buy/sell
should be made directly to the poster, not to the Group. The member
posting the FS or WTB may post that the item(s) was/were
sold/purchased.

6. Posting of commercial items for sale by manufacturers or dealers
is also fine, but should be done on an infrequent basis. The FT100
members benefit by learning of hardware, software, sales, etc. before
it appears in magazines, etc.

7. New members are all moderated until their first posting. If it
follows the guidelines, it is approved and the member is change to
unmoderated status. This list is a partially moderated list, i.e.,
only first message is moderated while later messages are monitored
after posting. If an unmoderated posting is found by the moderators
to have a problem, then the poster is contacted directly to resolve.
Actions are taken against those that chronically violate the rules.
The reason for this form of moderation is to block spammers from the
list and it has been working.

8. Do not add disclaimers to your posts that (1) restrict the ability
of other members to use the information you post, (2) claim a copyright
to your post, or (3) to claim any type of "rights" as a consequence of
another member replying to you post either directly to you or to the group.

Thanks to all es 73,
Barry - W4WB

MRF255 needed

Well, mine croaked this weekend. So what is the consensus on the
replacements? I have found references to SD1405, Polyfet SM724,
BLF177; Has anyone tried them yet? what changes have to be made in the
radio, or are they all direct replacements. On RFParts site there is
also matched pair sets of the SD1405 available. Are these better than
getting two singles?

The mrf255 seems to be very intolerant of any impedance mismatch. This
time I was just running 20watts into an automatic tuner that refused to
match either HF antenna in my truck. The mfj manual tuner that I
normally use indicates good matches. Anyway, This is the second time I
will have to replace them. The symptoms are the same. Yaesu fixed it
last time and did a few swr mods--charged me $438.00!!!! Their repair
prices seem to vary wildly on the alleged same type of work.

It is in good/excellent condition.

For more info, please email me personally so to keep the threads from
the group. My address is kc8lqv <at> peoplepc.com

Please have the subject header say something in regards to the ATAS

HF noise from a diesel engine

Does anyone have experience troubleshooting HF noise coming from a Ford
7.3 Power Stoke Diesel?

I just installed my FT-100D into my 02 Ford with a power stroke diesel
and I'm picking up what sounds like ignition noise across all HF bands
with 40 meters being the worst.

Since diesels do not have an ignition system I'm assuming this noise
is coming from the fuel injection, the noise does vary with engine
speed. The noise is not coming from the alternator because I
disconnected it and noise remained. Any ideas?

Re: HF noise from a diesel engine


John, I'm real curious what you find out cuz we also
have a 7.3 diesel 2001 and what I'm hearing is exactly
what you are describing!! I'm not much of a diesel
mechanic but I'm also suspect the noise has to do with
the fuel injectors....

Wud be great to hear what you come up with.....

73 and gud luck!!
