    I'm watching the qrp kit on the internet and I see hundreds of them. Does anyone have schemes of some qrp and modem that can be made.

    Are you asking a specific type of kit, or, are you wanting to copy and existing kit?

    Two offerings recently seen are considered a very good product and an excellent price

    The uBITX (http://www.hfsignals.com/) is priced at $129 USD. or about 214 BAM (plus taxes, import fees etc) All band, CW and SSB - and very 'hackable"

    The other kit of note is the QRP Labs kit "QRX". A single band with built in test equipment and other great features. Selling at $49 USD, or about 82 BAM.

    IS this the kind of information you are seking?

    http://www.jumaradio.com has released PCB gerber files of there retired kits.
    You make your own board and source your own parts.

    There are a plethora of used QRP rigs for sale at any given time. I think many are intrigued by the concept but then find how much dedication it takes and lose their ardor for QRP. I also think many are more into kit building than they are into actual operating. Especially in the QRP area. So what is your priority...kit building or operating?

    Hi,

    I got the uBITX working and I thought it was a fun radio that was worth the money, but you should expect that you will hack it a little---it's not intended as an end-user radio. Also, it is designed for SSB, and I believe it needs to be hacked with a bit in order to work well on CW.
