QRPKits.com has introduced the next model of their famous DC-xx series, the DX-xxB where xx = 20, 30 or 40 meters.
These are single frequency QRP units that are easy to build and fun.
The QRPeanut Can transceiver featured on HamHelpDesk uses a DC-40A unit.
This easy to build QRP transceiver is a single channel direct conversion crystal controlled assembly available for use with CW.
All you need to add is antenna, keyer, headphones and power. An antenna matcher makes good sense too.
- the addition of a 50 ohm resistor to tame one of the circuit sections and keep it from oscillating. This was an issue with some of the DC-40A units including mine which I fixed myself.
- Also included is a case! Perhaps it is not as elegant as a Peanut Can, but certainly solves the problem of what do to with the completed board once you have it ready.
- A new circuit board design with more space between components rounds out this latest offering from a very decent provider of fun QRP Kits.
Here is more information…
I very much enjoyed building my DC-40A and am considering another one, perhaps for another band and the new case makes this a very good deal at around $50.
