5 tubes QRP SSB Transceiver for 20m ham band

Posted on Apr 28, 2012

This true SSB transceiver is built around just 5 vacuum tubes, with no transistors nor ICs. Superhet receiver with AGC and S-meter drives a loudspeaker, 5W transmitter, very stable VXO uses CB crystals to cover 20m ham band. A project for skilled RF technicians with a good set of instruments.
