Click here or my latest forays into homebrewing, a 40 meter DC receiver from a design circa 1981!
Click here for one of my first rigs I built, a 15 meter rig using a VXO tuner.
Here is one of my "you build" rigs. It is called a "Rock Mite", because it uses just one crystal or "rock" for a frequency. It only has two frequencies actually, one at 7040kHz and one at 7039kHz! It was a lot of fun to build...
My all-time favorite homebrew rig to date (9/9/02) The 2N2-40 rig. This rig was actually designed by Jim Kortge (K8IQY) for a contest. He published the design in a small quarterly publication called "QRPp Quarterly". It contained great illustrations and very clear instructions on how to build it. Along the way, I had lots of help from people in the "QRP reflector" on the internet. It puts out maybe 2 watts, but has a very sensitive receiver and a good signal out. I have had much fun building and operating this rig. Contacts always are amazed when I tell them it's a "HMBRU, at 2W" Isn't it lovely? I was really very proud of this one, it took quite a while, but was well worth it!! See more at Jim's Web Site for the 2N2-40
