Fine receiver  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I just finished this neat little receiver, and it works great. I plan to put it on the air with a Ramsey transmitter and will update after a few contacts.

The kit went together with no snags, and the assembly manual is clear with very good instructions and parts identification.

Sensitivity is very good, on a par with my Yaesu FT 817. Selectivity seems very good for a direct conversion receiver. There is a preamp, which can be bypassed with a jumper. Audio is ample for my earbuds, and an audio CW filter can be
switched on. I did not test with an external speaker. Band coverage can be either about 7.0 to 7.15, or the full band. I elected to install 1 of the 2 included varactors, because this receiver will only be used for cw. The tuning pot is 10 turn and tuning is easy.

I included QRPGuys Digital Counter, which is optional for this unit. That is the only ding I have for this kit so far. It was impossible for me, with my old eye and somewhat shaky hands to get the two bottom mounting screws in, but it works fine without them.

I'm very pleased with this receiver.
