Alrightty, makes sense now.. I was thinking maybe it was an Australian-designed kit or something at first. Silly me.
The post coming through 4States group should have been a clue that I could have used but I got lazy and sent the question.

It is an Ozark 17, right on the 4 State QRP Group kits list. Unknown
abbreviation threw me off at first too!

Where is the OZ-17 kit available from? I did a quick Internet search
but was not successful finding anything on it.

I am always looking for something to build or test or
study. I found the oz-17 kit ( I bought 2) one for 17m and the other I
am bouncing between 30 and 40m. I do like to build smd even though my
eyesight is not what it used to be ( I’m 65)
I have finished
the 17 m board and will be adding the connectors and boxing it.. I am debating
between t Hammond enclosures.
I have not decided whether to add a
frequency display ( noisy) or develop a Morse code frequency readout by
pushing a button…
I am having a pleasant time building this.
it highly.. it WILL improve ones skills with the iron, magnifiers and
tweezers. It states it is an advanced kit, but patience and not too much
coffee will get you far with this kit.
Here is the link to some google
photos. Remember the board is quite small, if you zoom up too far you
will see some things that look awful… but then
anything looks awful zoomed
up.. the parts are not big.. you will see some normal sized diodes and zeners
for perspective as well as my build area..
are welcomed and encouraged.
I hope all are well
