The "QCX" (QRP Labs Xcvr): a feature-packed, high performance, single band 5W CW transceiver kit with WSPR beacon and built-in alignment and test equipment. Available for 80, 60, 40, 30, 20 or 17m bands.

Hard-copy assembly instructions are not included in the kit. You need to download the assembly and operating instructions manual from http://qrp-labs.com/qcx 

Note: The QCX transceiver is always shipped with the latest firmware version available at the date of shipment. 

Note: the optional GPS receiver module kit is very useful if you wish to operate this kit as a WSPR beacon (it disciplines frequency, time, and Maidenhead Locator grid square). It is also useful for calibrating the transceiver kit, to get the synthesiser reference oscillator precisely calibrated (resulting in accurate transmit/receive frequency). 

An optional 50W PA kit is available, which also has an optional enclosure. This 50W PA kit will give your QCX an extra boost for those occasions when you need a bit more power - to work a particular station for a regular sked when conditions are bad; to deal with our bad band conditions these days; to work a particular DX staiton, etc etc. The 50W PA kit includes solid state Tx/Rx switching for full break-in (QSK) operation. The kit includes heatsinks and connectors as well as the PCB and all components. See http://qrp-labs.com/50wpa for more details. 

UPDATE 19-DEC-2019: (ONLY APPLIES TO THE 50W PA ENCLOSURE OPTION)
The 50W PA Enclosure is now out of stock, the first batch of enclosures was sold very quickly.
More are on order.
If you purchase the 50W PA Enclosure, please understand and accept that this is a PRE-ORDER for the next batch.
The next batch is expected to arrive in about mid January (estimate only)
If you order the 50W PA Enclosure and other kits, everything will also wait for the 50W PA Enclosure.
If you prefer two separate shipments (50W PA Enclosure kit later, everything else ships now) then please put the 50W PA Enclosure in a separate order.
