A few weeks ago I was looking around ebay and came across a Pixie CW transceiver kit for 40m, the price was only £3.92 ($6.07 US + or -) with free postage, it comes with all the components and sockets. Not bad I thought, so I ordered one.

The kit arrived and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the circuit board etc. I built the little transceiver and wow, what a little beauty. The Rx audio was loud and clear, using an LM386 audio amplifier with a gain of 20 (minimum parts) and the Tx output was around 400 mw at 12 volts.

I'll also put some to pictures of the completed rig on the forum soon. I must go and find a nice case/box to put it in.
