Well, how about single band, 10 Watts CW? Add THIS to the kit:

I'd love the general coverage receiver, if it would not radically increase the size and power drain.  If so, then the HB1B series looks better.

As for SSB......




you should be a-SHAME-d of yourself!!!

Har-har!

LOL, I know, uh, it's not for myself ;-)

I saw that amp.. It would be better to have everything on the same board.. Well, the K2 has a separate SSB board, that is an idea.. It does complicate construction a bit though.

It is true that Morse code is all one needs for emergencies. Nothing more efficient for sure.. PSK31 might come close but it is a 100% duty cycle mode I think and requires a decoder. Not everyone is willing to learn Morse though, their loss.. That is regrettable. I added the SSB requirement because the caller might not be the radio guy, who incidentally could be the victim of the emergency..

Good link Ray! The author might have sort of a foot fetish, but good story.
