Post by ke1fr » Mon Feb 16, 2009 10:07 pm

I have a Homebrew 40 mtr Qrp Rig in nice cond .
i built the board from a parts kit.it is a superheterodyne - xtal filtered.
silk screened board..true vfo,tuned around 7.040. tunes 35-40 khz up or down.solid state T-R switching (qsk). Output Abt 2.5 watts max.
I built A Cabinet,Painted it Enamel Almond with a Black cover.used a feq counter on it.put markings on it especially the VFO.All Are TRUE.then added several coats of clear coat.then baked it.nothing will come off.
I also have a Radio Shack 12 volt@3 amp,pwr supply with it.the pwr supply has binding posts on the front along with a cig lighter hole.
it is in good cond ,maybe around a 7 out of ten,has a small blister like rust.works fine.i was thinking on trading them both or selling them.no idea what to ask.i bought the,box,the pots,knobs so-239 con.lights etc.

Well I just saw a Norcal 40M qrp rig kit unbuilt sell for $135.

Now you have to consider it covers 100khz and is 5 watts. Also yours is built and working but is also a few years old and been used but since yours has a case, knobs and the like.

If it were me I would offer the rig for somewhere near the $135 and see what you get.

Just my thoughts.
