    Here are the two kits I purchased. No problem.

    I purchased these two kits in spite of the fact I have big tuners and tiny tuners.

    I purchased these two kits especially because I appreciate the design, and I especially appreciate having all the parts together in the kit.

    I know parts suppliers, even so it is difficult to get any amateur radio project started.

    I bought the same antenna (no tune) and had fun putting it together. Very well made kits IMO. The ParaSet40 is next. :)

    I can actually "see" the QRPGuys small parts.

    I am looking at the ParaSet80 as the next kit for me.

    Let us know about the ParaSet40. Okay?

    Where Are They ?
    I see all the QRP kits being bought, discussed , and maybe even being built, but why do I not hear much activity around the QRP frequencies.
    My FT990 has the best receiver of any I have used in 5 decades on the air, I hear the FEW QRPrs I have worked just fine.

    Which are where, tho? Maybe I still lack the 'flight time' to discern these matters, but it seems to me there arent specifically QRP/weak signal freqs with any significant degree of consensus. Or else it's just my luck that folks set up where I'm sending because they can't hear me! Haha.

    I suggest google search "qrp frequencies" or "best qrp frequencies". Here's one: http://www.qrparci.org/qrp-update/qrp-frequency

    There are listed band plan courtesies.

    If you want to know where to find a specific contest or "activation" look there.

    I haven't bought from them yet, but the kits look good and the prices are very reasonable.

    The UnUntenna Plus looks very good.
