Simple fun  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Great little QRP transceiver. My wife built the one I'm using for her intermediate license project. A little guidance was required as there is no silk screen on the PCB and instead components are placed with the help of grid and circuit diagrams. It all went together in a day and after some debug went straight on the air. Best DX so far is HB9, not bad for 1.5W from GM! It has a very sensitive RX and break-in is silent and superb. Drift is minimal and adds to the fun. At the end of the day it's hard to believe it only cost 34. A great way to appreciate QRP radio.
