I saw a posting today on the QRP-L archives that Small Wonder Labs has discontinued the famous DSW II rig, and the SWL Noise Bridge Kit.

I'd like to thank Dave Benson K1SWL for all the hard work he puts into running Small Wonder Labs.

I have built many SWL kits, and they are of the highest quality and they WORK like crazy.

The SW40+ is still one of my all time favorite rigs.

I could kick myself for not getting an order into the pipeline for one of the DSW II rigs before they were discontinued.  Kept watching the backlog status on the SWL website, waiting for it to get better.  It didn't.

I'm kicking my own butt because I have bought, build and eventually sold THREE of the 20m versions. I shudda kept one. I had the Jackson Harbor chip in the last one, it was a GREAT rig.

…Say it aint so, Joe! (Dave)

It looks like I got one of the last 3 rigs shipped. And what a great little rig it is. Waited 5 ½ months for it to arrive. But it’s worth the wait.

Also built the NorCal-40A. That too is a nice radio. But, the DSW-II beats it hands down.

Here’s hoping Dave has a change of heart and brings back this little classic.

Don't act too surprised if (when) the DSW-II series rigs return...or morph into something even more smashing!
Strange thing...time...
