QCX-mini, 5W CW Transceiver kit launch
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Some of you might not yet have heard about the launch of a new and really exciting product from my good friend Hans Summers, G0UPL. It is called the QCX-mini. It is a low-cost CW transceiver kit that will fit in the palm of your hand when assembled. See his announcement below for all the details. This is by far the coolest kit around … and if you need assistance when building it, I offer my services, lab bench and whatever you need to get it together and working.

Many of you will already be aware of the QCX CW transceiver kit which was launched in August 2017, and evolved into the QCX+ in May 2020. To date, in total 11,568 of these kits have been sold (August 2017 to December 2020).
I am pleased to announce the QCX-mini: all the same performance, functions, firmware and price of the original QCX/QCX+, but in a much smaller package, a perfect Christmas stocking gift! QCX-mini is now available costing $55 for the kit (same price as the QCX+). A beautifully CNC machined black-anodized extruded aluminium enclosure is available, with laser-etched lettering, for $20. The QCX+ TCXO option is $8.25 and is compatible with QCX-mini. Sturdy and small, it's cute in the shack or perfect for outdoor adventures.

We also will have assembled/tested/aligned/calibrated QCX-mini kits which can be pre-ordered now but probably will take several weeks to assemble since we will be busy handling QCX-mini kit order shipments as much as possible in time for Christmas.

Special portable-friendly features:
In addition to all the standard QCX/QCX+ features:
A small daughtercard PCB has been included to facilitate easy modification to the uSDX software-defined SSB transceiver see https://groups.io/g/ucx (this modification is supported by the uSDX group, not QRP Labs).
