Impressive!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After becoming interested in "minimalist" QRP, found this design on the Norcal web site. Using a PCB from Far Circuits and parts from my junkbox, I built one in an evening. Had so much fun with it, built another for 30M from parts ordered over the web at total cost of $15.

The performance is pretty impressive for something so simple. Unlike some other minimalist rigs, this one doesn't seem as prone to BCI. Both of mine put out about 1/2 watt with a 12VDC supply. Using a dipole antenna, longest distance so far is 1600 miles.

Muy buen transceiver QRPp  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Excelente transceptor de simple conversion.
Yo realice muchos DX desde Buenos Aires (LU).
Mis mejores DX's fueron a 1200 km, con la zona CE y a Sao Paulo (PY) a 2000 km.
Por el costo de los componentes, lo simple de armar y sus prestaciones, lo recomiendo. En Sud America utilizamos la frecuencia QRP de 7030 khz.

Se puede encontrar informacion en la web del e-Grupo QRPp Argentina de yahoo.
