Letter from David in Israel Re: QRP Radio Kits

While the tuna tin theme is cute, for the price there are much better QRP [1] rigs out on the market than I see at the QRPme.com web site [2]. (Theirs are about the worst). The kits they shown here all look like they have the smallest transistors possible and are only able to make miracle DX [3] on very special occasions as I suspect they would be hard pressed to kick out a whole watt. The other downside is that they are not transceivers just transmitters. I still think the best deal for the money is from Small Wonders [4]. There is a whole educational program prepared around building this kit. My choice was the mmr-40 with SSB voice and CW morse code [5]. – David in Israel
