Next Meeting: Tuesday 17th Jan – Talk: “Building the Elecraft K1 CW transceiver”

Hi
At our next meeting on 17th January there will be a talk on the Elecraft K1 CW transceiver.
A project I am currently building.
This is a kit which can be put together by anyone with basic soldering skills.
The assembly instructions are very thorough…
One of the features of the design is simple inbuilt diagnostics for fault finding and alignment.
A comparison with the Rockmite will also considered.
