Welcome to Kanga Products
Welcome to the Kanga Products website, home of the famous Foxx-3 Transceiver. Items are being added or changed all the time, If in the meantime you do come across any problems or cannot see what you are looking for, then please email us and we will try to help.
These are the latest offers from Kanga Products, these will be on show at the G-QRP Event of the year - Rishworth QRP Convention Click here for details
As you can see from the picture the Receiver has an 16 x 4 LCD Readout, showing a CW reader and frequency readout.
The Sandford Wattmeter, consists of the following three instrments:
A dual Range (5 & 20 Watt Full Scale) Power Meter
A 50 ohm Non-Inductive Load (Dummy Antenna)
A resistor pi network giving -36dB sample output

Colour LCD - Update
Have you been following Paul m0xpd's Blog, if not click here You will see that he has now upgraded to the 20x4 Colour LCD that we sell (see LCD page for details).
We now supply this LCD with the I2Cserial module fitted, allowing for a straight swap of your Mono screen if you have already built say the VFO.
Here we show an example of what the VFO with a 20x4 LCD looks like on the bench . As Paul states in his blog the picture does not do the LCD justice.
You will need to download the latest version of his software which is free to download from here.
Make sure you read his blog for the changes that need to be made if still using the Mono LCD.
This will be on display at the Hamfest, so come along and look at Paul M0XPD's work in action.
The "Kanga / m0xpd DDS Shield"
Click here to go to Paul's (m0xpd) Blog which explains how you can intergrate this shield into a VFO system covering all bands from 136 kHz - 10m .
Please Note: This kit includes the AD9850 Module
Some of the Features:
- Standard Arduino "Shield" Format
- Interface for familiar AD9850 DDS Module
- Flexible Arduino I/O Allocation
- On board Generation of Quadrature Square Waves (i.e. for SDR)
- Building block for future projects (VFO, Beacon, CW Transceiver)
- Full Code & Application examples
Arduino "Sudden TX Shield"
Fits neatly onto the Arduino DDS shield shown below, to enable a Multi-band transmitter (according to BPF fitted) to be created. See Paul m0xpd blog at: http://m0xpd.blogspot.co.uk/ for further information
See the Arduino page for further information.
Mode - CW (other modes possible)
Variable CW Speed (Paddle & Automated Calls)
Click Here for the latest update on software and information complimenting Paul m0xpd artical in latest SPRAT - "Occam's Microcontroller" , i.e. new version of the code has been produced, due to the fact that original LCD used is no longer available.
The new version allows the use of a 16*4 alphanumeric LCD + I2C interface module. These are available on the Arduino page. Please note!! You will need the correct LCD Library installed to ensure correct operation of the LCD.

The "Kanga" K14 Keyer
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.
Acorn SDR Receiver
This SDR receiver was designed for a Pontefract Radio Club Project. Built by a number of club members in February 2011 it quickly became a great success. The kit covers 2 sections of the 80m band phone section by selection of crystals. The kit comes complete with all board mounted and external components, plus a screen printed PCB.
Provision is made so that you can add your own switchable Bandpass filters and crystals.
"Please note that this kits contains no SMD parts"
KANG SMD Dummy Load
Previously kitted and retired by the Four State QRP Group, Kanga Products (UK) have been given permission to re-launch this excellent example of a Self Training kit in SMD Soldering.
For those who wish to see the original documentation these will remain on the 4SQRP Website http://www.wa0itp.com/dummyload.html.
There are also links (Youtube) showing you the various methods of soldering. The Kanga version is a total SMD component kit and is designed to allow the builder to gain experience in SMD soldering.
Finningley SDR 80m Receiver
This kit was produced for the Finningley Microwave Roundtable. Kanga Products have kindly been given permission to re-produce the kit here.
This simple SMD kit is a great way to get into Software Defined Radio.
Open QRP 40m Transceiver Kit
Further information is available on the OQ Transceiver page.
Click Here for the Spec of this great little rig, you will notice it even has a CW reader.
"We are now able to offer a limited pre-built service of this kit, please go to the OQ page for further details"
Kanga are now able to offer a Spanish translation of the manual and parts list, thanks to the work of Jon EA2SN. Go to the OQ page for details.
QRPme - The "TEXAS TOPPER"- 40m version
(Other bands to follow)
To compliment the Rockmite ][ and other QRP transmitters.
Click Here for the build information on this great add on kit from the QRPme stable, and further details on the Rockmite page.
QRPme - The ROCK-MITe ][
Rockmite ][ from QRPme is a crystal-controlled Direct-Conversion Transceiver available for 80M, 40M, 30M or 20M.
It features an on-board 8-pin PIC microcontroller which controls the T-R offset on key-down.
See the Rockmite page for further details and links
