Thanks. Jack did respond to my email but no resolutions as of yet.

That is not the case with this one. Connecting a 270 non inductive resistor to it should give me approx a 5:1 SWR but shows 300:1. 50 ohm resistor looks good. Something obviously is wrong.

Hey Paul, thanks for the reply. I am at the same point with Jack and no replies.

My analyzer seems to function but does not display SWR correctly. On a dummy load it reads well but on a real antenna with 1.5:1 SWR it is off the charts. Have yet to figure it out.

I appreciate the efforts for the project but think the league should have vetted the project better before publishing it.

Anyone in the process of building this kit?

I ordered the board from QRP guys and parts on a slow boat from China via Ebay.

Have to say the assembly manual is going to be the biggest challenge as its missing info, has incorrect values in the schematic (which they warn you) and assembly photos using boards from other kits that look close but are not.

In the end I will probably end up with more money in it than its worth but looked like a fun project.
