A nice assortment of evening/weekend kits based on the "Tuna Tin" chassis. Dozens of transmitter, receiver, transceiver, RF amplifier, interface, and audio kits just to name a few! Excellent service and graded A-Plus for FUN FACTOR! High quality PC Boards. These are QRP and QRPp kits for beginning, intermediate, and expert QRP ops. I proudly display my "QRP ARCI Thousand-Miles-Per-Watt Award" earned with milliwatt rigs from qrpme. Now supplying the legendary Rock Mite kit as well. By Rex Harper, W1REX.
"QRP Bob," another QRP legend, offers the very best in technical support. The Norcal 40, a classic QRP transceiver and its options are available. The Wilderness Sierra is now sold out. But if you can find a used one, as I mentioned on the WB3T Home Page, it is the best QRP-Class transceiver in the history of Ham Radio in my humble opinion - and I have tried most popular QRP rigs from 1975 to present. If you missed the Sierra, the Norcal 40 will give you the feel of this fine line of QRP rigs in monoband form.
Dave Benson's enterprise. Another QRP legend, but unfortunately Small Wonder Labs is closed. Dave leaves a definite hole in the QRP market, but is enjoying a well-deserved retirement. I played in the 2013 QRP ARCI "Pet Rock Sprint" using the Rockmite, and had a blast! Using a Rock Mite on 7.030 and a Tuna Tin on 7.040, I took First Place in the Single-Band (40m) Category. The Rock Mite is a VERY cool shirt-pocket rig and is now available through QRPME.com. The Freq Mite frequency annunciator is now available through Four State QRP Group, below. It has found its way into most of my QRP projects. With this addition, the QRP-To-Go experience is a joy.
Midway is in the process of resurrecting the popular Small Wonder Labs SW Plus as the new ME-40. 80, 30, and 20 meter versions are soon to hit the market, as soon as parts are delivered. Watch the Midway site for more info. An expanded line will most likely be available by the time you read this.
Now defunct. Ramsey is currently only producing commercial and military test equipment. A shame they couldn't leave just a small crew to handle hobby kits. They were fun.
Ten Tec was a pioneer in the QRP realm with the classic Power Mate line nearly 50 years ago.This was followed by the very popular Argonaut Series, a ground-breaking advance in QRP quality. The 13xx Series of T-Kit QRP transceivers was also very popular. Ten Tec has been sold again, and the new owner is not honoring purchase orders at sale prices contracted by previous ownership even though when you purchase a business, you also purchase all of its assets and liabilities. All repair orders are currently on hold and Ten Tec says they will return your unit at your expense if you do not wish to wait. No date is given for repair work to resume. So again, the expense you incurred to ship your repair unit to Ten Tec, trusting their agreement to facilitate such repair, is lost and now you must pay again to get your property back. Ouch. Apparently new ownership feels no need to honor the customer obligations they legally inherited. Also Ten Tec products are not currently in production - ownership (Dishtronix) cites, "We are fully occupied with our commercial business at this time." And, the "STORE" link on theTen Tec web site is still "Under Construction. "
R.I.P. Ten Tec as we knew it.
I only recently discovered this, and so far have only built their "Magic Box." Thumbs-up on that one. Thankfully they have picked up production of Small Wonder Labs "Freq Mite" frequency annunciator. Someone needed to do that!
