Cricket 80A

The Cricket is a low cost entry level minimalist CW transceiver for the 80 meter band. It sports a direct conversion receiver, Class E final, and abt 800mw power output, and is a true transceiver featuring QSK, TR/RX offest, and a sidetone. It is great fun to operate, and works well with any 80M CW crystal. Featuring the NM0S etched spiral inductors it is a snap to build, and is one of the Four State QRP Group's most popular kits.

A 30M version will be released at OzarkCon 2018. Dubbed the Cricket 30 (what else? :o), it has been chosen as the Build Session kit. At 30 bucks delivered, the Cricket is a really good buy. Try one, they're great fun.
