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.

IMPORTANT:

All 320 remaining kits of the first batch (after RSGB YOTA Summer camp, and Friedrichshafen hamfest pre-orders) were sold out, in just over a day after the launch on 21-Aug-2017.

The 500 kits of the second batch were sold out on 08-Sep-2017. These kits were pre-orders, expected to begin shipping in mid-September. 

You are now PRE-ORDERING from the THIRD batch of 500 kits which is currently being manufactured. This next batch of kits is expected to be ready in the middle of October.

Please be patient! Your CW transceiver kit(s) will be assigned a Serial Number, notified to you by email. The serial number of the next kit to be shipped will be updated daily, and shown on http://qrp-labs.com/qcx. You can check that page to see where you are in the queue and for other updates regarding shipping status. 

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 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).
