I currently have two QRP rigs. My first is an SW 20+with 2.5 to 3 watts output, my second is a DSW 30, with 2.5 watts output, but I can use 9 volts on it and only get about 700 mw output.I have made them both from kits. I got both kits from Small Wonders Labs in Newington, CT. I am very pleased with both of the rigs, but I have a preference to the DSW with it's clever PIC controller chip. I use either a dipole or a folded dipole for antennas. Currently using a 102 foot G5RV antenna up about 29 feet at the center.

This is my QRP LOG. I will try to keep it fairly up to date.
