20m Projects - CW Transceivers

Click to enlarge1"Minimal 1", QRPp transmitter for 20m CW by OH1TV
I like to design and build minimal electronics. QRP and specially QRPp can be really minimalistic. It is often easier to make complex solutions than simple one's. In minimalistic design the product is improved by taking parts out.

Here is a variation on the theme of the simple Pixie transceiver. In my version two 2N7000's form a push-pull PA with an output power in the neighborhood of 1.5W. This same transistor pair is used as a single-balanced product detector in a direct-conversion receiver.

This a 20/80m imaging CW QRP transceiver.
A transceiver technique "imaging" which was widely used by homebrewers during the 60's and 70's usually has a 9 MHz IF. A 5.0 to 5.5 MHz VFO results in 3.5/14 MHz input/output at the same time. The desired band has to be band filtered.

I made already quite a few QSOs with the this transceiver, even with some JA stations.

The 2N2/20 is the latest incarnation of the rather long list of 2N2/XX designs. Departures from the all "2N2222 transistor dictate" provided an opportunity to use a variety of discrete semicondutors to enhance performance.

One of my favorite projects was this SST for 20 Meters. The SST was designed by Wayne Burdick, N6KR and described in the Spring 1997 issue of QRPp. The SST Kit is commercially available, but I though it would be fun to build one from scratch.

A CW QRP Tranceiver for 20m band by IK3OIL
The little QRP presented in this article may be built in a gradual manner, in fact it is divided in two main modules (plus VFO), you may also complete only a single part (RX or TX module).

I’ve been wanting to build an SST for a few years now. It’s a plucky little rig, with a lot of character. Designed by Wayne N6KR in the late 90’s, appearing as a full article in QRPp, and a kit sold by Wilderness Radio, it ignited the imaginations of a whole generation of builders for it’s combination of simplicity, performance, and willingness to accept modifications cheerfully.

A QRP SSB/CW Tranceiver for 14MHz by W7ZOI
Part 1: 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 Tranceiver for 14MHz by W7ZOI
Part 2: This moth, 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.

Click to enlargeMultiPig 20 Transceiver by W8PIG
The multiPIG is an Electronic Instrument that functions as an all band QRP Transceiver, a Signal Generator and a Frequency Counter.

Click to enlargeThe Multi-Pig Phased-Lock Loop Frequency Synthesizer by AA3SJ
The PLL is part of a larger project, the MP20 (multi-PIG) designed by Dieter Gentzow, W8DIZ. Details and construction lessons can be found at the MultiPIG web page.

Click to enlargeMy First QRP Rig "The Barefooter" by PA2OHH
When I found the design, I did not believe that it was possible to make QSO's with it as its simplicity is such a contrast with the standard amateur transceiver with high power, superhet receiver and other complex circuits.

Click to enlargePocket sized 20m (30m) CW QRP transceiver by S56AL
I started to discover the 30m band by using an adapted version of my 80m single-board CW transceiver. The first impressions were quite encouraging, so I decided to build a portable transceiver for this interesting band.

YU2TT, Vojijslav, sent me the schemas of his transceiver, ad i am happy to publish his work. So, every one with some experience in electronics can build his own transceiver ! In same ways it is inspired by the Toucan of F6BQU, but it has its own changes.

Click to enlargeRadio Ozon - Miniature 20m CW station by GØUPL
This project aims to build a complete miniature 20m handheld tranceiver into an Ozon mint tin. These mints are available at many newsagents here in the UK. The target is a complete station in a box, not just a transceiver.

Click to enlargeThe Wuther - 20m CW QRPp Transceiver by SP5DDJ
Just by the end of the year 2002 new QRP rig became alive. I called it "The Wuther". The concept of my smallest rig was taken from experience and some ideas presented in the Web by my distinguished colleagues - Wayne N6KR, David W0CH, Wayne NB6M and many others.

Click to enlargeUn transceiver 14 Mhz simple by F6FEO
En juillet 2004, surfant sur le net, je découvrais un étrange montage de transceiver.
Appareil ultra-simple, décrit par un OM Indien Ashhar Farham, il s'agissait du BITX 20.
