A Break from Antenna Analyzers (Pixie II Transceiver)

Filed under: Electronics,ham radio — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:59 pm

I took a break from antenna analyzers to find and build a rig for a friend who is in a nursing home. The requirements are:

  1. It should be very small and portable. A nursing home doesn’t have a lot of space.
  2. It should be a CW rig. My friend is proficient with CW.
  3. It should be easy to build.
  4. I need to find the components in my junk box.
