  1. Hi Bill. Listening to 232. I'm very interested in the 17m band. I have just finished a QRP rig for the band here. Its working well but not made any contacts yet with it.
    This is a kit I got hold of some years ago but just put it into a corner and forgot about it but as the lock down is putting a damper on everything here I came across it when cleaning up the room.
    Took me 3 days to put it together and get it working.
    The instructions for this are very good indeed.
