I never really thought about it, but I use a Heathkit HW-101 (I know this is a
QRP forum ... I run an MFJ-9040 for QRP ... nice rig!). I have never mentioned
my HW-101 as "homebrew" and I don't really consider it to be such. When I
send "RIG IS HEATHKIT HW101" I assume they know SOMEBODY had to assemble it.
I just leave it at that and count all contacts as non-homebrew QSOs.
