Imagine the fewer
of chasing new DXCC countries again! For some - QRP is a new
beginning, for others a new challenge or even a great way
of life. Operating QRP you may forget about TVI! Just put
some stealth antenna and you are on the air.
Around the world with the QRP!
QRP DXCC? It's easy on 20 or 15 meters, on 40 meters you may
need a winter or two, on 80 or 160 meters it could be a lifetime
Do it on holidays, in contests.
Use it as "before the sleep" radio. It is a great
reason to get up half hour earlier, check the bands drinking
early morning cafe, or to find long winter nights less depressive.
Discover the world of QRP contesting, less stressful - contesting
for pure enjoyment.
Build it yourself or get completely finished one
You can choose between basic kit, kit with pre-wound
toroids, or completely finished ready to operate transceiver.
Basic kit contains all parts needed to assemble a complete
transceiver: resistors, capacitors, transistors, diodes, mixers,
ICs, toroids, wire for coils, high quality soldering wire,
double sided professional quality PCBs, case and all mechanical
parts like buttons, screws, connectors... Extensive assembly
manual is illustrated with step by step assembly pictures.
It begins with detailed theory of operation - so you will
know your radio. Detail procedure for easy tuning etc...
Performance that will challenge any big radio
With huge dynamic range (IP3 of +15 dBm) this radio is a serious
instrument. Think about finding a high quality headphones,
this radio deserves it. Feel the technical perfection, silky
smooth QSK, shaped sinewave sidetone, high quality audio.
All that in a very compact package. With a resonant wire and
a location at the top of the hill you may have the world best
receiving system at the moment. Milliwatter freaks will love
built in power meter, to calculate miles per watt ratio. Built
in SWR meter helps you to play with the antennas. Connect
external power amplifier and enjoy the big gun operation.
Serious contesters can easily turn of the AGC.
Optimized for enjoyable operation
A1 is designed using well proven conservative approach.
Optimization of A1 transceiver is done both in laboratory
and in real life tests - working seriously in big contests
and chasing DX. Built in RIT and XIT allows you to fine tune
the receiver and to work DX in split mode. QSK system enables
you to listen between the dits, but a longer delay can be
switched that will allow more comfortable operation in high
QRM situations. Clean design without SMT components allows
easy modifications and further optimizations. Built in 4 mode
keyer for every taste (bug and ultimatic mode for old timers,
Curtis iambic modes A and B for QRQ elite).
- Plug-in band modules for any short-wave amateur
band. Up to 100 kHz coverage per band. Order as many
bands as you want. Easy band module change.
- 3 digit LED display: frequency (100 Hz resolution),
power, SWR, S-meter, keying speed and supply voltage.
