The Bayou Jumper - a new 40m transceiver kit from 4 State QRP Club

A regenerative receiver and a prior kit from 4SQRP Club, the NS40 (remember the spiral inductors
etched into the circuit board?), are now to be combined into a transceiver offered as a kit meant to be reminiscent of old spy radios.

A case is not included but a folding wooden box from Hobby-Lobby (shown here) is recommended and in keeping with the spy theme.

The kit is not yet available for sale but will be soon. In the meantime, further details and the assembly manual can be found here.

It's a neat idea for a kit but when will we get a re-make of Kurt Russell's old "radio rifle"? Now that's a kit I'd buy in a heartbeat ;-)
