Re: Newbie Looking for Kit Recommendation

Good afternoon
Do your self a favor, start simple.
Try a Sscpo practice oscillator for soldering practice, then move up to say a Ozark patrol or a Cricket?

The Hilltopper is a nice transceiver but it’s not exactly for a beginner.
I would have replied with you name, but I didn’t see it in the email?

Good luck,

Just received a new soldering station but NO experience with soldering circuit type items. Advancing my CW skills and want to try QRP with one of the 4SQRP kits. Thinking 40m with either the Hilltopper or the Cricket. Learning so open to advice.
