Re: eePe and Ubuntu 12.04 - Permission problems

Hope that the hall effect works for you. I saw that the magnets had come down in cost since I bought them. I agree with Kilrah. ttyS0 is an RS232 Serial port and not a USB port that your STK500 is using.. I know it is unlikely that it is wrong. Have you ensured that the configuration setup in Eepe i...

The shunt will blow quicker than than fuse because it is smaller , the fuse has a larger thermal mass to heat up.

It certainly was of interest. Some of what you have done is also verified this end, although I didn't check out the +6dB setting so I will not use it. Seems like that chipset is getting around a lot.

You may have also noted that there is a slot in the top of the pot spindle. That lines up with the 'bar' that is at the top of the knob hole which you should take note of when you come to refitting them.

Marc - You are a bit far away and the costs of sending aerials to you is prohibitive. It is easy to build the paper clip one. You can do that without having to tear things apart from your receiver.

They seem to be the 40cm and 60cm types, perhaps they are compensating for losses in that length of coax. You could be right Mike. The loss of the mini coax is about 1dB per foot with the wind in the right direction. I would like to try the dipoles to see how they do. Please post your results. :) S...
