www.ozQRP.com is owned and managed by Leon Williams - VK2DOB located near Canberra, the capital of Australia. I've had a passion for radio and electronics since I was a young teenager. I was always pulling things apart to see how they worked or building things with little resources from scratch. Eventually I obtained my amateur radio licence in 1981 after completing my electronics training.
My main interest has always been designing and building simple low power(QRP) radios. The idea of soldering together a few inexpensive components and being able to talk to someone far away has always fascinated me.
I hope that by building these simple kits that you too can gain that same excitement.
You may ask, "but I can buy a rig that has many more features". Well yes, that's true, but to operate a radio that you've built with your own hands will give you a wonderful sense of achievement.
One of my very first rigs was a DSB transmitter and DC receiver that I built myself. I will never forget the day I had my first contact on that gear. As well as the thrill of operating your own rig, you will learn many new skills along the way. And because you know exactly how it works making repairs or modifications will be a breeze.
