SHIPPING NOTE: Due to expected high demand for this kit, it will probably take a while to ship. Please accept this delay as we deal with the high volume as fast as we can.

Beta firmware supports CW and Digi (all functionality of both QCX-mini and QDX).

The "QMX" (QRP Labs Mulitmode Xcvr): a feature-packed, high performance, five-band (80, 60, 40, 30, 20m) 5W multi-mode transceiver kit. , including embedded SDR receiver, 24-bit 48 ksps USB sound card, CAT control, synthesized VFO with TCXO reference. QMX transmits a SINGLE SIGNAL, it is not an SSB modulator with associated unwanted sideband and residual carrier, or intermodulation due to amplifier non-linearity. QMX outputs a pure single signal. 

QMX is currently only suitable for single tone FSK modes, which covers the majority of digital modes in use today (if it later supports SSB, multi-tone and phase shift digi modes will be possible). This includes everything in WSJT-X, JS8Call, some fldigi modes e.g. RTTY, Olivia and more. QMX is also suitable for on/off keyed modes such as CW because it has click-reducing RF envelope shaping; it is not suitable (until and if SSB is implemented) for phase shift keyed modes such as PSK31 or modes involving multiple concurrent tones such as WinLink.

Assembled kit: The kit will be by default, assembled for operation from a 12V supply. If you prefer it to be built for 9V supply operation, please write a note in the customer notes/comments field at the checkout. NOTE: Assembled kits are built to order, the waiting list is published here - we ship around 25 per week so, if you are ordering an Assembled radio, please accept some waiting time based on this; if you need it urgently then please contact us about it.

The Optional enclosure is black anodized extruded aluminium, very sturdy and elegant. The enclosure size is 92 x 63 x 25mm without protrusions. The front and rear panels are drilled and cut to match the QMX PCB with laser-etched lettering. The enclosure includes four self-adhesive feet.
