Field Day at W8CDX

FD-W8CDX-by-wa3tts-1024x768

NO3M created a 1930s Field Day vintage radio station for use in Field Day 2016. Nice looking station, certainly not minimalist and perhaps not totally chirp free, but it is nice looking job at such short notice.

QRP Build Projects

There are two ongoing QRP transceiver build projects.

The CWTD project is building a SW-30+ transceiver. This is the SWL rig, runs 2-3 watts and has a superhet receiver, and covers 35 khz on the 30 meter band. I have ordered one of these rigs and will be building it over the summer.

The K7QO project is building a 1-watter transceiver. This is a VXO rig and runs 1 watt. Chuck has built one of these rigs for other bands as well.
