A New Jersey Battalion for the CBLA? The NJQRP SNAP on 3.579


Back in 2000, the NJQRP club came up with a nice little transmitter called the SNAP. It was designed by Chuck Adams K7QO.   Dave K5YFO alerted us to it and suggested it as an alternative to the Mighty Midget.  One advantage over the MMM is that the SNAP needs no variable capacitor.  But it does need a couple of coils wound on toroids.   The SNAP design includes a low pass filter, something that has to be added on to the MMM.  Check it out.   Even if you've already built the MMM, you could easily take the crystal and use it in a SNAP build.
