Great CW Rig Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
I build this 8 Band CW Transceiver in 3 month.
There ist a good manual for step by step building and alignment.
I added an varailble crystal filter.
A good analog transceiver easy to operate.
You have to be familiar with soldering SMD parts but the work is worth it.
It is not a easy project for beginners you need a little experience in rf technics.

If you are into SMD, this is the one Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
If you ever want to built a superb CW Transceiver using SMD technique, this is the one for you. This is not for SMD starters and a challenge!

Although I have not built all of the band modules yet (24/28 MHz still missing) this little transceiver is performing very good.
Audio is very clean and it delivers around 10 W out on all bands. (No broad frontend.)
Only drawback is that it is not fully QSK.

Still, its worth the money. Remember, this kit it not for beginners and needs a bit more skill than to complete a K2.
