    Nothing official from Hans @ QRP Labs but the QSX 10-band SSB/CW/AM kit has been pretty much confirmed. They built them at YOTA2018.

    That's interesting, I've been thinking about buying a QCX kit, there is a relatively new version of the PCB available.

    "QCX: a feature-packed, high performance, single-band 5W CW transceiver kit, with WSPR beacon and built-in alignment/test equipment. Available for 80, 60, 40, 30, 20 or 17m bands. It has rotary encoder synthesised tuning, VFO A/B/Split, Iambic keyer, CW decoder, and more..."

    The QCX doubles as a piece of test equipment, it can be a volt meter, a frequency synthesizer, an RF power meter and
    a frequency counter. Not bad for $50.

    Not bad at all! I've got my 20 meter QCX ready to go, just waiting on the enclosure I ordered to be shipped, I plan on making it my main SOTA radio. I get nervous every time I take the $1000 KX2 up a mountain! I will be buying a QSX when it comes out, or sure though. I have a feeling I might end up selling the Elecraft once it's put together.

    Official page for the upcoming QSX transceiver kit from QRP Labs. Hans is shooting for a November release. This is a game changer for a lot of people.

    Game changer is an understatement. A $200 radio with all the performance of a KX2 but can do way way more than it could dream of. Well, that is kind of special. I cannot wait for it to be released. Like the QCX it will be on backorder for months, thats my guess.
