This was my first introduction to Pixies. This unit sits on 7.040 and keys about 300mW

....Pixies are fairly compact
....Not having any inductors lying around I wound some on hi value resistors.
Surprizingly I had no BCI!
Note the on-board key.
...point to point wiring used on this guy
...I picked up this trick a long time ago. It's a 1-watt light bulb dummy load!
