Re: QRP: More detailed advice sought...

     OK, having done some more thorough research, I have narrowed things
-down to
three choices for a qrp kit. I am interested in what people have to think
the following:
I personally would recommend the Gary Breed Transceiver design,
as I have a 30M version. A kit for any band is available from
Pat at 624 kits and is roughly $115. Good kit, with nice
instructions and a very helpful Pat a phone call away if you
need it.

Good luck, whatever the choice.......... 72 de WO7T/QRP

$75 NorCal 40 by the Northern California QRP Club
$109 Sprint by Oak Hill Research
$159 Gary Breed Transceiver by A&A Engineering

The NorCal 40 is more along the price level I'm interested in, but I am
wondering if maybe the Sprint or Gary Breed transceivers might be more
useful once built. If you had to choose one of the three, which do you
represents the best value to a first time builder?

Another problem is that this wouldn't be purchased likely until February,
and the NorCal kit may no longer be available then...
