RARE: 40-Meter Dual-Range SST CW Transceiver

95.00

The Simple Superhet Transceiver (SST), a Wayne Burdick, N6KR-designed CW rig, came out as a kit in 1997 and became an instant QRP radio hit. This one, expertly constructed, includes a varactor-switching modification, significantly expanding band coverage. The rig covers 7.031 to 7.045 MHz. That’s 14 kHz of 40 meters.  From Southern California during the day it brought up Reverse Beacons in Arizona, Nevada and Utah. It puts out a solid 0 to 3 watts adjustable. Great on-air reports. Small and lightweight  for trail-friendly operation. Smooth QSK, beautiful keying, 3-pole Cohn crystal receive filter and much more. See the SST Manual here. December 2000 QST review here. Also the Spring 1997 edition of QRPp. In 1997 the unbuilt kit sold for $85, which equates to almost $130 in 2017. The built-and-tested kit here is a real bargain.
