One of best QRP kits around, simply great!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This is one of the best QRP kits around. Simple, complete, well documented and works a real treat.

I regular use it for contacts on 40m ranging between VK7, VK3, VK5 and VK4. 1.5W gets good report up to 1200-1400Km with great audio. In fact it is now my rag chew rig for 40m.

It has a simple but very effective DC receiver, and is real easy on the ears, a pleasure to listen to.

antenna is dipole at 7.5m AGL, perfect for NVIS and this power level.

No AGC, but its designed to be simple, just adjust the gain control if its strong.

a real pleasure to use, a real credit to ozqrp.

Superb  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I ordered the kit from OZqrp from the UK and it arrived on time and great communication from Leon. The Kit is simply superb. Well laid out and good Instructions. Nice case and great not to have to find a case and drill and all that! The PCB is also very high quality. I built the kit in a few evenings and was on the air as it all worked first time. Very impressed all round really. Now the challenge of working someone on a noisy 40m band. Fun!
