Hi Paul,

nice to read that you din't give up! :-)
Hopefully for the good season also from this side will be ready;-)
Just when the new MF PA was ready, functioning and able to push enough juice to reach the 1W limit the exciter decided to stop :-((
Probably I had to be more patient and attempting to re-sold a TSSOIC IC I ruined the PCB.. I mounted it some years ago with a better sight.. so I had to start not a simple IC replacing but prepare a new PCB for the IC (with P'nP sheet I had to do several attemp to prepare the PCB and again place a new IC but finally I succeed ).
Now the exciter is functioning fine alone and with the LF PAs, but on MF there is apparently a carrier residual (leakage through the FST3253) which is too high so I'm getting RF output also with no modulation..
so more to do..

Ogg: LF: Transmitting 2200m WSPR-2

During a stormy night I have made final (I hope) changes to the new
amplifier and its power supply.

I am running WSPR now as a test. I will continue, maybe with some
interruptions, for a day or two. So far everything looks very good!

I made a new output transformer which now gives the least amount of
drain ringing I have seen with any version. :-)

Power supply is complete. I made everything as efficient as possible
to minimize use of expensive electricity.

I now have full power and will be ready for some nice QSOs when the
quiet receiving conditions return in a few months. Now I will start
to work on receiving antennas...
