Post CQX 5W single band CW TX kit
Dont know if anyone has seen one of these before, single band TX CW kit with extras for $49 (choice of bands)
Look at the youtube video and click the link, built in signal generator and other tools
I am very impressed with what i see, only for having a ft817ND i would buy one in a flash for 20M

Paddy, it is. It's an easy build and am excellent rig.
There can be a few issues...some kits have simply failed to work once built and none of them.give 5w on 12v, expect 3 watts.

But it's an excellent radio and certainly worth a punt.

I'm building one for 17m and 20m

Working well, just to put it in a box now. Still thinking about that :)

viewtopic.php?f=59&t=91628

Must be one of the best value kits around at the moment.

Steve,

Are you building one dual bander or one each for two bands?
If it's a dual bander how have you modded it,?

Or are you building that most violent of rigs, the duel bander???

I built mine but one thing I will do on the next one I build, I will wind T1 and install it first! What a pain in the neck that job was!!! The rest was a great build, a very nice little kit, I need to find a nice box now.

When I built mine I wound and installed T1 first.
Made it easier to test the joints for continuity.

It worked first time and tuned up as described in the manual.

Just need to finish boxing it now.

A great little CW kit, very impressed.
