Thanks for visiting

The backpacker balun kits are temporarily unavailable. I’ll have the order button reinstalled on the Kits page shortly, but it has been removed for now. Please check back in a couple of days.

I’ve also added a link to the retired EFHW tuner kit’s assembly manual. I have received a lot of requests for the schematic and transformer winding instruction.

I’m working on a portable whip tuner. Screw in your 8-10 foot extendable whip (Buddipole makes a nice one at a great price) and add a couple of short counterpoise wires, and you can tune from 40 to 10 meters and transmit at up to 25 watts. I’m looking for a suitably small, but sturdy enclosure. I’m hoping to get the kit out under $30.00.

As always, if you need any help with a Better QRP kit or information on your order, please e mail KI6J@[thisdomain].com.  You can also call or text 842-3211 in the 818 area code.  It is my work number.
