Hello

Following many requests to split V 0.6 components kit into RF board build kit and UI board build kit
we are now please to offer this configuration. For information on price and shipping please visit our Order page.

I would like to advise that shipping may follow up to 3-4 working days after purchase as we don’t stock large quantity of all components.

    I am a VE4. I am planning to sell a couple of 100 watt HF rigs that I cannot use, due to antenna limitations. When this is done, I plan to order one of your V0.8 transceivers. This will likely be early next year. Will it be possible to order this as a semi-kit, that is, with no soldering required, so I just have to do the assembly work? My eyesight isn’t the best for soldering, as I have no proper depth perception (I am blind in one eye). When I get this, I plan to do a review of this transceiver for a couple of local club newsletters, and compare it to the club’s ICOM 7300, and a couple of my own QRP rigs (Xiegu X108G Outdoor and LNR Engineering LD-11). Although the 7300 isn’t QRP, based on what I understand your transceiver offers, it seems to be a worthy challenger to the operating features of the 7300. Apart from the requirement that I have to sell my 100 watters first, I understand the 0.8 has a 5″ touch screen, which would be nicer than a smaller one. I would like to see you get the benefit of your design work, rather than order a Chinese knockoff. Incidentally I have lived in Canada for over 72-1/2 years, but I am originally from London (the real one, not our fake in VE3-land). I have had my license since the summer of 1970, originally as VE4KS, then VE3KDS for over 21 years, and now VE4GKS.

      Hi Gerald,

      Thanks for your support! Yes, the 0.8 will be sold almost finished, as it is very challenging to solder (specially the UI board). But will be in limited
      quantity, and probably pre-order as it has very high components count (more than 600!). I did solder 6-7 of the UI boards already, just to get the feel
      for it, one of the new Logic boards and about to do few of the RF boards next week. Also source codes are almost ready for release, but still have few
      things to iron out, like structuring and removing badly coded libs (HAL, GUI, etc).

      I hope we can start having some stock before Xmas, as i know it is quiet time and everyone wants to build something after the holidays.

      73!

    Hi again
    Yesterday I received a packet with a ui-board vers. 0.6 and the components. On the line HY28B is written “Not provided”. I suppose it means that it is out of order and will be delivered later.

    I have with interest read that I can buy an IO-board with components.
    Last yeat my mchf was hit by lighting and the IO-boardt was spoilt but the RF-print was still ok. The RF-board is a vers. 0,4. I guess that I can use my 0,4 RF-board with a new 0,6 IO-board.
    Is there any plans of a 0,6 boars with preinstalled SMD-components?

      Hi Leif,

      Yes, you can use older rev boards, maybe do the mods with some fly wires. At the moment we can’t
      offer older version with components installed, but maybe in near feature we can have something
      sorted, who knows.

    Hello Chris,

    Lovely radio design you have developed! I am an experienced kit builder and I would like to build an MCHF radio. I do not want to buy a Chinese clone because I feel it would be inferior and they do not pay you royalties. However, I am a big fan of the Elecraft KX-3 form factor, and I like the size and shape of the Chinese case which is used on the Chinese Clones (RS-918; Recent; etc); its dimensions are 215W x 74H x 62D. What component packages do I need to order from you that will fit into that case, and are there any other components I would need to order elsewhere? I want to get everything I need to build a complete, working MCHF in a KX-3 form factor.

    Best Regards,
    Al Clark KD4EO
