Not for the faint-hearted  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I've built up lots of kits over the last 40 years, usually with a few problems. But nothing like the problems with this rig! The coils are tricky and small - don't even THINK of removing them from the board! I think my main problems, though, were with the dodgy irf-510/530. The first one blew, and took a toroid coil with it. Nasty smell of hot varnish and the smoke got out!
However, when the problems were sorted, the wee beastie works very well on both rx and Tx. Just a comment, there has been a lot of dodgy transistors on ebay lately, and now I pay more for them but from a reputable dealer. 
Product is in production.
