New Open Source Rig Project? Dah Mini-Pig+

The QRP-L reflector has been buzzin’ with the news and chatter (positive and some negative btw) about a new project to design and build a new transceiver for QRP HF use. YAHOO!

What I love the most about this is that the QRP community is able to contribute ideas, resources and participate much like the Open Source software community operates. This could really be a fun project for our Central Florida QRP group. After all, we are not that far from Diz W8DIZ who is facilitating and coordinating this project.

If you like to build, experiment and try some QRP operation with a new rig… you should tune in and join the fun.

    To be truthfull I voted for New Mexico !! I just Love that state and its inhabitants. I try to stay in small towns or the far out outskirts of a major city, mingle with the local folk and enjoy that New Mexico culture. Alex K5uny Dallas Tx
