RARE: Original NorCal 40 CW Transceiver Kit - Unbuilt

80.00

This is the original NorCal 40 CW transceiver kit produced by the Northern California QRP Club in 1993. It is a classic piece of QRP history.  Designed by Wayne Burdick, N6KR, a founder of highly-respected Elecraft, it marked a seminal moment in the timeline of club-produced radio kits. It is simple and elegant at the same time. Take a look at its construction and operations manual at http://bit.ly/2hiyrnZ. This document contains all of the relevant specifications for this great kit. In a nutshell, however, it is VFO-controlled, covers 35 to 40 kHz of the 40-meter CW band, has excellent receiver and RF output filtering, runs a solid 500 mW to 2-watts (adjustable) of clean RF output.  There is plenty of audio to drive headphones or even a small speaker. The NorCal 40 was wildly popular back in the ’90s. Once you build and operate it, you’ll understand why.
