NS-40+ 40M 5W QRP Transmitter Kit

Here's a great little CW transmitter QRP kit, the NS-40+ (None Simpler). Very few components to solder and no coils to wind since they are built into the PCB. Assembly, if you are slow like me, takes about 30 minutes. The transmitter works well: great sounding keying and I'm getting a solid 4 watts output into my dummy load. The kit costs $30 from the Four State QRP Group

Now, to make my first contact! I'm excited!! Happy


Cheap Shack Clock

I was browsing on eBay recently and found a bunch of fun looking little DIY electronic kits from China. The first one I have completed is the 4-digit LED Digital Electronic DIY Kit. It is very simple to assemble with only through hole soldering. It cost $7.76 with shipping and arrived in a couple of weeks.
