Kanga (US) are now stocking a limited range of our kits, these are now listed on their website Click Here for details. Hopefully this will now help in reducing the postage costs incurred when shipping to the USA from the UK.
The "Urmston" Regen Receiver Kit - £23.95 each
"G-QRP Buildathon Kit "
The production of this kit is a collaboration between the G-QRP Club and Kanga Products.
This great little receiver design came from the stable of George Dobbs G3RJV and Paul Darlington m0xpd. and will be available for the constructors evening on the Friday evening before the convention.
** The Acorn II SDR Receiver ** £29.95 each
The Acorn II SDR Receiver is an upgraded version by Paul Darlington m0xpd, of the ealier G0NQE Acorn SDR receiver. The original design was created for a Pontefract radio Club project and built by a large number of club members in February 2011. It was a great success, and still continues to be. The original kit covered 2 switched sections of the 80m phone band. The Acorn II SDR offers a 40m receiver kit, with two options of frequency control. Using either Crystals or the m0xpd Si5351A Arduino Shield, also available from Kanga Products.
Click here and go to Paul m0xpd's Blog, for Arduino ideas you can use and develop for your Acorn II SDR. Also there is a lot more going on with regards to other project idea's so why not make it a regular port of call.

Click Here to see Dan M0TGN's new Build Video of the Acorn II, also Click Here to see Dan's Blog all about the building of Acorn II. I'm sure you'll agree even a beginner to home construction will feel they can build this kit after watching this great video.
As some of you will know this kit is also subject of the RSGB Convention Buildathon, Dan M0TGN has now completed the Buildathon instructions, Click Here to look at what is involved. For those interested in joining in on the day, please go to the RSGB website for further details
The "m0xpd" Si5351A Shield for the Arduino - £29.95
Please go to "The Arduino Project Page/Arduino Shields" for full details.
In the meantime whilst not try out this great little chip, by using the breakout board below, Paul m0xpd has even written a basic sketch so as to generate VFO and BFO Signals for a Superhet. Check out his blog. http://m0xpd.blogspot.co.uk/
The Si5351A clock generator breakout from Adafruit! - £6.95 each
This chip has a precision 25MHz crystal reference and internal PLL and dividers so it can generate just about any frequency, from <8KHz up to 150+ MHz. The Si5351A clock generator is an I2C controller clock generator. It uses the onboard precision clock to drive multiple PLL's and clock dividers using I2C instructions. By setting up the PLL and dividers you can create precise and arbitrary frequencies. There are three independent outputs, and each one can have a different frequency. Outputs are 3Vpp,
Click Here to see Paul m0xpd's blog to to see the latest instalment with regards to this is great little board.
Click Here for the link to the updated firmware to get you up and running.
To see how easy it is to get this Breakout Board doing what you want i.e. a BFO or a VFO or both look at Paul's blog http://m0xpd.blogspot.co.uk/

The "Kanga" K14 Keyer - £14.95 each (Temp out of Stock)
This kit is a inexpensive single IC Morse Code Keyer/Processor which can be used either in contesting or casual use.
It is based on the very popular K14 I.C. developed by Steve Elliot K1EL who has kindly allowed Kanga Products to produce their own PCB.
"The K14 Keyer has many original features, and with a PCB measuring 38mm x 35 mm it is small enough to fit inside a transceiver".
Down load the K14 Features & Description including a Tuturial from here
Down load the build in structions from here
The K14 Keyer from Kanga Products is still a current version.The new K16 IC available from K1EL (Hamcrafters) is an amended version of the K14 to resolve a problem with the Battery version they sell.
There are no new or additional functions in the K16 IC.
