These type of (low volume) radios are made on a batch basis. Any changes, to the software, front panel and so on - will have to wait for another/next production run. IF there is another production run. I had assumed (my bad) that anyone that gave this any thought would know how these are made. I can see that was an assumption I should have not made. I've been following these little QRP radios for some time. I'm fascinated by the changes (many times for the better) as each new run is made. The HB-1A/HB-1B and all of its 'children' are just one example. (MK2, Mod 0 and so on) Even the Big Name makers run production batches for their ham rigs. Again, I had thought this to be common knowledge. On the other end of this equation is the DCW1 QRP rig. Never made it past pre-production prototype stage. I have both the radios that made it out of China. A shame, as they are pretty neat little rigs. The HS-1A/MFJ-9200 was a *one and done* as well. No longer available, it has been replaced with the HS-1B, in a new / different form factor. The SW-3B has a lot of clever innovations -and a very nice form factor. I'm trying to help keep it in production by writing a manual to support the technical side of the rig. That said, I have to imagine the market for QRP and CW radios is fairly small. Dale posted a schematic for the SW-3B (my Kidos again) which prompted my offer/effort. All the reviews I've seen are positive, but.... this is still a small (tiny?) market. I'm guessing that Dale has a day job and the Sw-3B is something he does on the side, as is the situation for many of these small rigs. Just the same, for an entry level ham - getting a assembled, 3 band, full coverage, feature-rich HF transceiver for under $200 USD is - to me - amazing. I started with a HW-16 and HG-10B VFO. The SW-3B is light-years ahead of that.
