Just when everyone is taking Summer siestas and there seems very little news around to talk about. Along comes a new Direct Conversion 40m Transceiver kit from Australia.
The MDT DSB kit is manufactured by Ozqrp, capable of 2W PEP, it has a full swinging VFO 7.090MHz - 7.130MHz or 7.050MHz - 7.110MHz. A complete kit of components including PCB, and case for $80 (Aus) less than £40 UK plus carriage. Which worked out at $12.50 (£6) posted to the UK, when I did a quick trial purchase test and popped it into the shopping trolley on the Ozqrp website.
Further details and a well written comprehensive manual can be found at: http://www.ozqrp.com/MDTindex.html
