Does anyone know how to contact Small Wonder Labs by email? Can not find an address on their Website. I placed an order by them back in February and have not heard anything back from them. Have PayPal receipt.

"I placed an order by them back in February and have not heard anything back from them."

Well, expect a 3-5 month wait with SWL kits, except maybe the Warbler, which I think Dave keeps in stock.
Dave posts your callsign, date of order, and where you are in the waiting que for that particular kit to be shipped. It's a one man outfit and he is a busy guy. But I tell ya, his kits are the BEST and well worth the wait.

I've built the PSK-10 (now discontinued), PSK-20, PSK-40 (original versions)and the Warbler. Also the long discontinued SSB White Mountain 20 and WM-40.
All great performers, just great.
I've got an unbuilt White Mountain 40 kit with enclosure and CW audio frequency announcer chip.
I am hanging onto this baby. In 20 years when there are no more kits with leaded parts (SMT only) I'll get a fortune for it....Nahhhh, I'll probably build it someday for 75m use.

Thanks fellows! I found the address. I never went all the way down on the order page for I was not interested in the products below the one I was ordering.
Somehow the email order conformation got lost, but Dave got in touch with me right away and shipped it not four hours after I contacted him! That is service!
Thanks Dave!
BTW. Do I notice that the 20 Meter band is more open than the 40 meter one? I hear a lot more on 20 than on 40. Or is it my location/antenna?

"BTW. Do I notice that the 20 Meter band is more open than the 40 meter one? I hear a lot more on 20 than on 40."

If you are just talking about PSK activity, there is just a lot more activity on 20m PSK than any other band. It's always been that way.

Overall activity, it also depends on when you are listening. 20m is more of a day band, and 40m more of a night band. For right now...when sunspots get better 20m can be open day and into the early evening.

IMO, Dave's kits and customer service are so superior in product and value, I view the long wait times as just an endearing quality of the overall experience.

Thanks Dave!   73 de Ken - N4OI

AD6AK: No I was talking about SSB. Last weekend the bands were very active on 20, I heard Europe (Poland, France and Austria) on just a MFJ portable QRP telescopic antenna. They came in 5 by 9!
I did not hear very much on 40.
N4OI: I absolutely agree with you. In my case, Dave had announced on his website that he was out of PCBs and they were on backorder.
I just now received the kit I ordered, it is first class.
I am in the process of assembling it, it reminds me of the good old Heathkit days!

Europe was open most of the past week - I heard Switzerland and Austria 20 over on one of the telescopic antennas as well.

Just was a great 20 meters week.

There is more PSK action on 7035 kHz than 7070 (supplied by SWL) kHz so I added a second second crystal oscillator Just have to switch the power to the selected oscillator circuit.  Alternately just build it for 7035.

I also built the 20m version and The Retro 75.  Dave does a great job!
