If you’ve found your way here looking for the slides I presented at the 2017 RSGB Convention “Low Cost Remote Radio” talk, you can find them over here.
The rather sparse WordPress page you see before you is the new front-end of my personal web site. This is always a work in progress!
Mostly I write here about hobby projects I am working on or have completed, partly as an aide-memoire to myself and partly because sometimes the information is useful to others trying to do similar things.
The blog I wrote covering my time with British Antarctic Survey can be found here.

Have to replace the 5 way on my HH Godin LGXT (which was replaced by the good folks at the no defunct Fender Custom shop Nashville, with a strat style 5 way.) Want go back to OEM to get original configuration: 1= Neck 2= single coil (nearest to neck)3= both neck and bridge full pu
4= bridge single coil (nearest bridge) 5= Full bridge pu The folks at Godin want to charge me $30 plus shipping for the import. Can I get the OEM configuration with the Strat 5way or is there a less expensive import alternative. The current wiring was a quess on the part of the folks at fender since at the time they nor I had a clue. Pls advise
Hi Mose, not sure to be honest. Looking at the default pickup selections you can’t get that without some clever switch trickery – I think your best bet is to throw yourself on the mercy of Godin!
Going to leave it in the capable hands of Joe Glaser in Nashville seems there’s a Fender 5 way stacked switch that can handle the redo
I was looking at this article. It is very informative. I installed a set of Fishman Fluence Single width pickups (Strat pickups) in my Warmoth Strat recently and the only way that I could get them to work was to use a 5 way switch (I had mini toggles in the original setup) because the Fluence use both sides of the 5 way switch separately. I ended up using a push/pull pot to turn on the Bridge pickup to get additional pickup combinations, but I would like to use mini toggles again. Can you steer me in the right direction to use mini toggles and what type I would need to use? I’m thinking I would probably have to use DPDT to get the same wiring scheme as using the 5 way switch.
Your attic looks the same as mine (without the skywave!). Ive got 20 and 40 working, not gone further yet.
Found your RSGB talk (sorry I missed it). I am also working down the remote path. I started with the rig (IC7300) connected to a PC, and ran the N1MM software. I then used VPN from the office Mac to connect (the radio and PC are in a cabinet in the kitchen). This works very well. I can change frequencies, bands, etc from the MAC.
For audio, I took a temporary approach with a long audio cable into the back of the MAC. Again this works well on receive. The problem is how to do audio and PTT on transmit.
I thought I would start with a long mic cable. But I spoke to a guy who does large scale audio cabling (factories etc), and he told me this was a recipe for RFI . So the project is stalled.
Could you please explain how you solved the audio issues. I think what you’re running is some kind of Unix servers, is that right??

Hi, i am having a similar problem like the one you describe on here:
I need you to ask what soft where you using to detect the noises on the UTP wire. Thanks!
Hey Tomas, thanks for stopping by. I was just using a cheap RTL-SDR receiver with the SDR# (SDR Sharp) software.
Hi Andy, I was reading your page about Ethernet EMI reduction. Really great stuff. Where did you find a linear 12V PSU for the switch? Anything you can recommend?
Also what ferrite beads did you use for the power cords? Anything recommended for those? I’d like to do a similar project on my setup also. I think the switch (12V TP-Link in my case) is a real noise maker.
Hey Casper, thanks for dropping me a line. I don’t have linear supplies for 12VDC in the setup here, only switched-mode PSUs that are relatively low-noise. Winradio used to sell a small 12V supply for their receivers and I have a couple of those but I see it’s not listed on their website anymore. I think if you search around looking for small 12V PSUs for radio use you may find something. I’ve seen a PSU appear marketed at Elecraft KX2/KX3 owners (http://www.nevadaradio.co.uk/amateur-radio/amateur-radio-power-supplies/pro-audio-kx-33) so that should be good but it’s expensive and supplies much more current than you probably need. Small, low noise, cheap PSUs are like the holy grail!
Ferrite-wise I use the type sold by the RSGB on their webshop made from Fairrite 43 material: http://www.rsgbshop.org/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_EMC_Filters_41.html
Hope that helps. Good luck!
No mention or photo of a Peavey 5-way switch that is not like either common type you discuss. So a guy who thinks he will do the 7-way mod is out of luck since nobody even mentions those outdated production switches used in Peavey Raptors…
