QRP Pixie kit

Post by RON » 14 Jul 2020, 22:28

Tobe generously sent me a couple of Pixie QRP kits just before the lockdown.
I’ve finally started one of them.
Built the front panel and base and mounted the PCB.
Decal is photoshop designed and stuck on 3mm ally plate.
Then a thin coat of clear laquer.

Ron.

Interesting Ron - very Reverand Dobbs :D done a few direct conversion receivers over the years but never a dc transceiver. Unfortunately I'm below ground level so unlikely to hear you :D plus you key much too fast for me :lol: :lol: :lol: Presumably all the kits on ebay, Ali & BG all use the same 7.023 crystal?

Hi Ron,
Nice project but nearly an empty box compared with my 40m tranceiver. ;)
What is the output power?
