Hello Rick, my thoughts exactly on the transceiver in a spam can.....I am wanting to build up a half watt or a 1 watt transceiver on 80 CW with VXO and speaker output.....40 meters or 30 meters is not a problem.....Even 20 meters.....My first thought was the QRP frequency of 10.106 MHZ.....A good VXO will cover the whole 30 meter band.....

Can you do surface mount parts?     I have had too many years of surface mount parts.....Let me rummage around in my library and see if I can come up with 2 or 3 good circuits.....

If the circuit board needs to use thru-hole parts, that is no problem.....Circuit boards will run about $5.00 each and take 4 or 5 days to get in quantities of 10 or more.....If the board are going to be surface mount parts, then I probably have all parts on hand already.....

I in NO way am wanting to compete with the 4sqrp kits, but, this sounds like fun.....Gary...K5QNM.

I have to think that spam sales went up after that clip came out.  I was only 6 years old so I wouldn't remember that kind of thing (grin).

I was thinking I had seen a radio in a spam can; finally located it:

Perhaps there are others out there??

That inspires an idea; a truly "minimalist" QRP rig designed to fit in a spam can.  Very low parts count, short build time, etc. etc.
