For whats worth, not much probably !
I’d love to see them complete-everything-you-need
SMD Kit Form
Once even the oldest or novice ham practices in tranquil surrounding i think even they would become accomplished constructors
Everythings getting smaller in footprint in our world so why not be the folks to give confidence in abundance
as a club designing state-of-the-art SMDKits ?
OR BRINGING BACK KITTED things Like Norcal Sierra - NC-20/30/40
A new “ Build It Your Complete Kit Of Needed Bits “ to construct a small-footprint “ Bug “ !
Loads ! Of Options
I myself have put out the idea many a time for a club to do-things with the north ottawa qrp club ( micro model only ) touch-paddle
With things that could be added etc
Alas to no avail put down like a horse no longer required for the job
This is only thought on the SMD package but if folks had a lil’ smt tool supply along with their everyday soldering tools
Then kits would more requested & tried as the fear factor would deminish
