New offering from Four State QRP Group

The following was announced today on the various QRP e-mail reflectors:

The Four State QRP Group is pleased to announce a new kit, the Stand Alone VXO (SAVXO) designed by Jim Kortge, K8IQY. The very complete manual, specifications, and ordering information can be found here PayPal is accepted. It is shipped with 40M components but can easily be used on any HF band.

This is a Super VXO design which has it’s origins in the Super VXO of the SS-40 receiver. It is crystal controlled yet combines frequency agility with smooth stable tuning, and NO perceptible drift – even from a cold start. It is ideal for driving your NS-40 or other crystal controlled transmitter or receiver, and is also a great starting point for a transmitter strip of your own design. As kitted the SAVXO will put out over 250mW by itself, plenty of power to operate QRPp if desired.

All proceeds go to fund OzarkCon. As always thank you for supporting the Four State QRP Group.

I ordered mine!  And once OzarkCon 2012 is over, I’ll be ordering a Magic Box kit, too.

    TNX fer this article! I have been spending WEEKS hitting the search engines, looking for a little FIVE WATT TRANSMITTER…ONLY. I found one watters and two watters. But no fives. I clicked the link in this article and went to the Four State QRP website and actually found a five watt xmtr! Yippee!

    In a few weeks you’re gonna hear me on the air with an NS-40 and an almost mint Ameco AC-1! This is gonna be fun!
