Thanks for the contacts.

I QSL all requests and use LoTW 100%

After building several regen receivers, I came across Dave AA7EE's direct conversion receiver for 40 meters.  It's a pretty easy build and uses a Four States QRP club Hi-Per-Mite audio CW filter as the back end.  Using this kit allows one to just build the front end, which simplifies construction considerably.

Inspired by Dave AA7EE's Sproutie/Sproutie MK II, I just had to build one.  One goal I had, was to see if I could fabricate the chassis from double sided circuit board.  This would allow freedom from standard commercial chassis sizes and allow customization, but would it be sturdy enough.  It has passed that test and the performance of the receiver has exceeded my expectations!

From this:                                                                   To this:

This is my previous regen receiver that covers 40 & 80 Meters.

Another project is a 40 Meter 6L6 transmitter and power supply.  Also shown is my reconditioned Heathkit DX-60 and HG-10 VFO.  Typical Novice station.

CU on the bands,
