As the price of electronic parts has dropped, it has become more practical to build complete transceivers, as opposed to separate receivers and transmitters. This avoids the practical problem of muting a modern transceiver--a common receiver feature often omitted today.
- An Optimized QRP Transceiver for 7 MHz
ARRL Handbook 1993, pp. 30-37 to 30-40
Here is a rig that provides a real challenge for the QRP home builder. Nonetheless, this is a classic circuit and a favorite in the QRP community.
- A QRP SSB/CW Transceiver for 14MHz -- Part 1
QST December 1989, pp. 18-21
Exotic circuitry and hard to find components aren't necessary if you want to build excellent performance into a home-brew SSB/CW transceiver: Careful design is the key.
- A QRP SSB/CW Transceiver for 14MHz -- Part 2
QST January 1990, pp. 28-31
W7ZOI rounds out his description of a 1- or 10-W SSB/CW rig with details on its transmitter, TR switching and optional speech processor.
- The QRP Three-Bander
QST October 1989, pp. 25-30
This low-power, direct-conversion CW trnsceiver covers 18, 21 and 24 MHz, and includes sidetone, spotting and relay-less full break-in --- all on one circuit board!
