Lee Cheever - Innovator, Inventor, Engineer, Ham

At the October 9 meeting, Lee Cheever, W5IG, showed us his vast engineering skills. Up first was his “Cool Transmitter.” We all know heat can destroy sensitive electronics and lead to DX failure. This is an excellent solution. Please go now to YouTube to see this unique system in action.

Next, Lee gave us a tour of his all-band mobile installation. We don’t know how he managed to stuff the Mini with all the gear, but here’s the final result.

Finally, Lee showed how you don’t need a good “fist” to send excellent code. Here is his CW (Continuous Whistle) Air Key.

Many thanks to Lee for sharing his ideas with the club.
