My very first rig: 40m CW monoband transceiver
pwr abt 5W
freq 7.000 - 7.050 MHz
built from kit by qrpproject.de
20m/30m or 40m/80m
2m/70cm FM portable for local communication
The other bands besides 20/30/40 and 80 meters were tempting me. The FT-757GX is a nice, small shortwave rig. The TX is open throughout the spectrum, so I even have 60 meters now!
All mode UHF rig. I initially wanted to try CW on 70 cm, but it now serves for local communication and repeaters. Together with linear amp at the back of the rig it has 25 W.
As it has no subaudio tones, I built a CTCSS encoder for it.
