You can see, and order the rigs here.
On the right you can see what you get. The board is fully constructed with very nice surface mount design. In the bag are all the connectors and pots you need, even a microphone is there.
The quality of components and construction is excellent.
I boxed it up in a $5 Woolworths "world explorer" box - which seems somehow appropriate.
Plenty of space for a DDS VFO in the future...
Tuning is very sensitive and I'm ultimately planning to install a DDS to replace the onboard (rather drifty) VFO.
Having said that, the receiver is very sensitive and signals sound great. My first contact was with a station in Melbourne - about 1,000 Km away.
The receiver is very sensitive and there's plenty of audio output to drive a speaker. Carrier was well nulled and I've had good reports of the audio using the supplied mic insert.
90mA is drawn on receive which makes this a great trail radio. My unit puts out a solid 6 watt but the availability of the option to supply a higher voltage to the final means you can get more if you wish.
Mine gets a tiny bit of broadcast band break through into the audio stage (when the volume is down) and it doesn't like noise on the power line (I have a solar charger that sometimes pulses).
This is a great rig and I recommend it to anyone who would like to play around with an easy to get going QRP 40m SSB transceiver. At about AU$50 it's an extraordinary deal.
I also enjoyed the newspaper that the board was wrapped in - lots of celebrity gossip there.
