At a hamfest today I picked up a homebrew QRP rig called a Lectrokit SP1. The guy who was selling it didn't know anything about it (it was on a table of items donated by hams to raise funds for an amateur radio club). It appears to be complete except for a round socket on the top that's empty. The socket looks like a tube socket, but I think it is actually for a crystal, as this is a solid-state rig.

My question: does anyone know anything about this kit, or where I could find a schematic (and maybe assembly instructions) for it? I googled for information about it, but I didn't find a schematic or assembly information. I did find out that it was a kit that was sold in the early '90s, that it was called the Lectrokit SP1 Spider, and was crystal-controlled. I also found out that there was a cover article about it in the Jan. 1993 issue of 73 magazine.

Thanks.

Well, you are in luck. The SP1 was designed and
produced by my old high school buddy Mike, W8TXT
(formerly WA8TXT). I have an SP1 and it still works
great. I can scan the documentation I have and email
it to you. Please send me your email address. Mine is
listed on qrz.com. 73, Gary KF6U

I am just starting this kit now, As I had purchased it in 1993 and had put it down. Now that I'm active again, I hope to use this for quick,portable QRP operations.  As soon as I'm done, I will follow up with a review!
