Interested in taking part in a club construction project?  Paul M0BMN link text has asked for suggestions for a new club construction project.  If you have ideas for what could be built, whether it be a radio or CW-related accessory/gadget, please send the details in an email to Paul link text.  It's also worth considering joining in the ongoing discussions about this on the FISTSCW Yahoo Group.  If you are not currently a member of the Yahoo group, you can join here.

Small Wonder Labs SW+

Click for a large image In 2006 and 2007 Paul M0BMN ran a club project where members built the Small Wonder Labs SW+ single band transceiver from the USA.  It's a great little set that gives around 2-3 watts of output and covers around 30-40KHz of whatever band you build it for (80m, 40m 30m or 20m).  Costs were around 50 including postage (full kit and box).

Sadly, SW+ kits ceased to be available from March 2012 due to Dave Benson winding down Small Wonder Labs, which finally closed in October 2013.
