VE3BOF's Regens and DC Receivers

Hi Bill:

This is Clark, VE3BOF, in Hensall, Ontario, Canada.
Hensall is located in southwestern Ontario, north of London and a 2  
hour drive west of Toronto.

Last Sunday night, 2017-10-01, I tuned in to 7277 kHz to listen to  
the BitX40 net. I heard you and 2 or 3 others.
Your signal was 5-7, perfectly readable.

The receiver I was using is a modified version of the WBR receiver.
It is still on the piece of chipboard that I mounted all the modules  
onto.  It's an excellent little regenerative receiver.

In the same state of incompleteness, is a modified version of the  
Easy Receiver (QRP Kits) direct-conversion receiver,
I use this receiver for the CW end of the 40M band.

Both receivers have been fitted with 10-turn pots for easy tuning,  
and also lcd frequency counters for displays.

I'm a former Motorola Communications tech, and used to maintain the  
radio systems of District 6 of the Ontario Provincial Police and our Ministry 
of Health emergency services radio system.

Being retired now, I have more time to check Soldersmoke every day  
and listen to your
conversations with Pete, N6QW.

Thank you for very interesting and worthwhile QRP information and  

Clark Forrest, VE3BOF
