Authentic Ft. Tuthill Tuna Tin 2 QRPp Transmitter

14.00

Just about ANY Tuna Tin 2 can qualify as a QRP collectors’ item. This one is even more special in that it was the QRP building project at the 2000 Ft. Tuthill Hamfest.  It is a 40-meter crystal-controlled transmitter capable of about a half-watt RF power output designed by the late Doug DeMaw, ex-W1CER / W1FB (SK). The object of the building project was to take a bag full of parts, the etched PC board, empty tuna can and build a functioning transmitter on the spot. A resistor “dummy load” was put across the antenna jack and anxious builders keyed their rigs to see if its signal could be heard on a nearby receiver. Although it was a hamfest novelty, this TT2 is set and ready to go on the 7.040 MHz QRP calling frequency.
