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".

Arduino Projects & Kits
A follow on to Pauls article in the latest Sprat "Occam's Microcontroller" This kit designed by Paul m0xpd (called Occams Dagger), and based on the Sudden TX from the GQRP Club, fits neatly onto the 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.
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 .
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
Open QRP 40m Transceiver Kit
Now available in the UK, Further information go to 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.
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.
Acorn SDR Receiver
This SDR receiver was designed for 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.
