I really enjoy building radio equipment - probably even more than operating. For me, most of the fun is getting there. I have built a lot of kits and also some from scratch. I remember my first kit was a Eico 753 transceiver (we called it the "seven drifty three"). That was about 1972. Since then, many Heath kits and other manufacturers products have been built. Now, most of my building is concentrated on QRP projects. I am always looking and planning to build new radio things.
Below are some of my projects.
Z-Match Portable Antenna Tuner
3.5-10 Mhz Regen Receiver
An End Fed Half Wave Antenna Tuner
40 Meter Ugly Weekender XMTR/R1 RCVR
Elecraft K2 Station
Magic Antenna Lengths
