Hello all,
I am curious if anyone could recommend any moderately priced QRP kits out there available for someone new to the game?

I would also be interested in a pre-built QRP kit as well.

Thanks,
Jeff

W2LJ has put together a fairly comprehensive list of QRP kit suppliers: http://w2lj.blogspot.com/p/suppliers.html

You can also find Chinese QRP transceiver kits on eBay for as little as $3, but these have significant limitations and I would not recommend them for first-time kit builders. Of course, for $3 there's not much risk!

KeychainQRP is a pre-built micro HF transmitter thats so small it can be kept with your car keys. It's currently available for sale on Etsy. Copy and paste the link below:

KeychainQRP's internal layout has been upgraded to make room for a 3.5mm keyer jack. This allows the use of external straight keys and electronic keyers. This could also potentially allow KeychainQRP transmitters to be used for RDF fox hunting and temporary/experimental propagation beacons as well.
