Adding to my list of “want to build’ items, I saw this one tonight.
OpenBeacon is an open source crystal-controlled QRPp beacon transmitter kit which can output a variety of slow-speed modes, including QRSS, DFCW, and Sequential Multi-tone Hellschreiber.
More reading at the suppliers web site.
I was just reading about this exciting QRSS Transmitter Kit by Hans Summers:
This 30m QRSS Transmitter Kit was produced by Steve G0XAR and Hans G0UPL.
The kit contains a keyer chip programmed with the buyer’s callsign, all components, and a 2.5 x 2-inch PCB to build my QRSS transmitter project
More reading at Hans website, however at 15 USD it looks like another kit I can add to my wish list!
Been looking around for some kits to build and one of the places I came across was Small Wonder Labs.
I’m a bit taken by the Rock-Mite CW transciever, even a kit building noob like myself should be able to have a go at that.
The PSK kit for something like 30m might be interesting, although some of the stuff that you can do with SDR makes it a bit pricey for a once use type kit.
I dropped an enquiry email to Dave K1SWL asking about stock of the RockMite and I had a response in aobut 30 minutes, pretty good customer service.
Will make an order soon I think, mmm the smell of solder smoke, can’t wait 🙂
