QRP Rigs

This page lists a lot of links to info about QRP rigs, either assembled or in kit form. The field changes constantly, and I depend on you to help me keep it up to date. In a moment, I'll give credit to those who have provided info. While links may be useful, I believe it is just as easy in this day and age to use an Internet search engine to find out info about QRP rigs. My personal preference is the wonderful Bing search engine. Just type in "qrp rigs" or something more specific and you'll be instantly provided with a vast number of web sites to peruse. If you don't like that and do prefer links, just check below.

Thanks to those who contributed info to this page: Craig-KC2LFI, Bob-K8FN, Frank-W7FH, Rob-AA1UY (ex-KB1DDT), Tommy-K7TGH, Bill-N4QA, John-WA1KLI, Clint-KE4FDT, Gary-K1YAN, Dave-WA9PDS, K. Jones from England, Casey-KS7J, Dar-W9HZC, Mark-WU7F, Terry-WA0ITP, Tom-WY3H (ex-KB3LFC), Graham-G3ZOD, Vance-W7IEX, David-WO4S, Carlo-IZ4KBS, Bob-KH2BR.

If you own a rig from one of the companies below, and would like to write a short review for this page, let me know. Thanks to KB6MMS, KE5YUM, KK5R, N4QA, N4VZD, N9BT, N9YSQ, IZ4KBS for contributing reviews previously.

For your convenience, all links to manufacturer's sites and all reviews will open in a new window. After each link is a list of some of the rigs mentioned on that site.
