Its been a busy year so far. In fact my radio activities have really suffered. But here is a quick update on a recent project I have undertaken.
I decided to build one of the PIXIE 2 kits that are available from eBay for £3.19 including shipping. At that cost – how could you turn up the opportunity?
The kit arrived in just a couple of days, and I was delighted when I finally had some free time to build the kit. I videoed the kit build, and it only took around 3 hours including the filming. If the camera hadn’t been out, and I was so inclined – im pretty sure this kit could be built within 60 mins.
Anyway here is the video. I hope you enjoy it, if you found it useful or inspirational – leave a comment and go buy a kit !
I will be taking this new kit out and trying to get a QSO. i hear it might be an uphill struggle. But i really must give it a go.
Nice U tube Dan.
Nothing beats building a tiny rig then bagging a DX station.
I have the China 5 watt rigs and a 3 watt SST and now building up the FOX-3 kit.
I sold all 3 of my QRO rigs but did pick up a Alinco SRT for $480.00 on sale but it back in the box 🙂
Thanks for that video.
