The Oakville Amateur Radio Club had a QRP rig build day at my QTH on Saturday. We had four guys building and two guys coaching (one guy visiting) as we put together the CRK-10a 3-watt CW xtal-controlled on 7030 (I already had one so I build the 30-meter version).
To say we had a great time wouldn’t even be close. And we all learned a lot about building and to take any estimate on build time and multiple it by three 🙂
Any way I now have duelling QRP rigs running simultaneously on 7030 (into the 40-meter loaded dipole on the Hy-Gain beam) and 10.106 (into a Butternut vertical).
Thanks to Jim VE3AJ, and Denny, VE3OKD for their excellent coaching. Waiting to hear the guys pop up on 7030. Maybe tonight around 7pm or so have a listen to the signals from the Oakville club.
