This evening I powered up my smdBITX and was rewarded by listening to several CW QSO's and two French SSB QSO's on 40m! The audio was surprisingly crisp and pleasant.
I still need to fine tune the BFO but at least I know that it works.
Yesterday I posted the first batch of kits, next week I will be sending the remaining ones and will then turn my attention to the VFO and BPF to accompany the smdBITX.
