Hi Tony,
    Just one more thing, just looked you up on the Buckmaster.com. Man you
are in Sacramento!!! NorCal QRP Club is in your home town! I'm sure that
some of the guys on this list who are in the club up there could help you
out. Plus you could actually go to the meetings and talk to people about
this stuff. Wish I lived up there! Check out the NorCal site for meeting
times. These guys are it when it comes to Homebrew Projects in your area.
Take care and good luck!
