InterRadio Exhibition (Hannover) part I

In the beginning of September my clubmates proposed to go to the annual amateur radio exhibition in Hanover, buy some spare parts for radios and to taste lokal beer (hi! hi!). I missed exhibition in Fridriskhafen in the last couple of years, so I gladly agreed and started to make a shopping list.. We started our journey on Friday morning last week and in the afternoon we were there.

James Bond's 9V QRP Transceiver

Jeff (K6JCA) made his own version of transceiver for secret agent. As he said: "OK, perhaps it's not quite as elegant as a "Q" creation, but hey, I can see Sean Connery pulling this little gizmo out of his pocket for some quick QRP action whenever there's a lull between seducing women and saving the world."

With 9V battery the power out is about 300 milliwatts on 40 meters. Or 900 mW with a 12V battery.
