I have always liked the idea of a small and compact QRP tranceiver and when I found a Pixie kit for sale at £4.71 it had to be tried!

This pictures from the sale included the following:

The kit arrived and all parts were there with the exception of one small capacitor which I managed to replace with a similar values capacitor from my bit box. Construction took about an hour and a half including lots of tea!

Once complete I applied power, speaker, and an antenna and there was much rejoicing! It didn't take me long to realise that the receiver was somewhat wide! I could hear most of 40m all in one go!
