Some of my favorite projects


Keyers My first modern electronic keyer kit is the Code Boy Pup. I reviewed this one in the QRP ARCI Journal. Since then I’ve built several others. The K1EL K-12 is the most recent. I like the K-12 command menu the best.

Z-Match ATUs Deluxe Z-Match

Z-match antenna tuning units using designs from the notes and articles by Charlie Lofgren, W6JJZ. Rebuilt the ZM-2 with a ‘JJZ dual-tuned coil and dual Z matching links — worked much better.
