I've had a passion for radio and electronics since I was a young teenager. I was always pulling things apart to see how they worked or building things with little resources from scratch. Eventually I obtained my amateur radio licence in 1981 after completing my electronics training.
My main interest has always been designing and building simple low power(QRP) radios. The idea of soldering together a few inexpensive components and being able to talk to someone far away has always fascinated me.
I hope that by building these simple kits that you too can gain that same excitement.
You may ask, "but I can buy a rig that has many more features". Well yes, that's true, but to operate a radio that you've built with your own hands will give you a wonderful sense of achievement. I will never forget the day I had my first contact on a DSB transmitter and DC receiver that I built myself. Not only that, you will have learned many new skills along the way. And because you know exactly how it works making repairs or modifications will be a breeze.
