Struggling Brother

OM Jason, NT7S, has been experiencing the kinds of workbench trials and tribulations faced by anyone who tries to create something new. But I think the radio gods are looking favorably on his efforts -- a recent QSO with W7ZOI is a very good omen:


Hang in there Jason! I'm sure the QRP community is looking forward to the availability of the rigs you are developing.

  1. Hi Bill,

    Thanks for noticing the travails of this poor sap who thinks he can bring a new QRP rig to the market. It's not exactly a KX3, but I think the radio will have a few features that will give it a competitive edge in a few areas, such as low current consumption, lots of microcontroller-based features, and open hardware/firmware. The DDS is also a nice feature that will make for good frequency stability out in the field and excellent frequency agility. And it should come in for a bit lower cost than a KX3!

    Things don't always proceed in the way that we expect, but the troubles have helped me to refine my circuits and smooth out the rough edges quite a bit. Lets just hope that I've sacrificed enough chickens this time to appease the RF gods!

    P.S. Always looking forward to the next SolderSmoke, keep up the FB work.
