  1. Looks like a nice neat kit. I have heard a lot about this transceiver from the soldersmoke web site.

    Have you managed to finish it yet and try it on the air?


  2. It is not finished yet. Have to wind the VFO coil (50 turns on such a small core) do the bi- and trifilar windings, acquire material for assembling the heatsinks to the pa, …..

I built mine and put it into an old CB enclosure, it can be seen at http://www.geocities.com/n2uhc_3/bitx20a.html. I highly recommend using some kind of frequency display with it.

      But last months I made no progress. Have to wind the trifilar transformator and the finals…
