For sale is are three unbuilt 4-State
QRP kits to build a high-performance 40m QRP CW station,
with full-break-in and
capable of up to 9W output.

The items are:

1. K8IQY SS-40 Stable
and Sensitive 40M
The SS-40 high performance receiver was
designed by Jim
Kortge, K8IQY. SS stands for "Stable and Sensitive".
It has an extremely quiet
amplifier chain and a matched crystal IF filter provides a
steep-sided 500 Hz
bandpass and outstanding opposite sideband rejection. A
variable crystal
oscillator provides 25-30 kHZ of smooth stable tuning.
Further details at:
2. K8IQY SS-40TX
This is a companion to the SS-40 receiver
and produces up to 9
watts (can be set to 5W), using a hefty, cool running MOSFET
as a final. All
parts are through-hole lead parts. Further details at:
K8IQY Magic Box TR Switching System
The Magic Box is a solid-state,
all-electronic, transmit/receive switching system that
allows a separate
receiver and transmitter to transceive with full (or semi)
QSK. An Atmel
Microcontroller handles the timing for five functions-
transmitter keying,
transmitter antenna switching, receiver antenna switching,
receiver audio
switching, plus a side tone oscillator. For further details,

The three kits were bought as a package
from Kanga UK and are being sold as a package. Sorry I
realise the Magic Box is
highly sought-after, but will not separate. 

US$90 for the three kits, plus postage.
Payment can be made by PayPal. Please email me in the first
