Ultimate 3 QRSS Beacon Sheds New Light →

image

Hans Summers’ Ultimate 2 QRSS Kit (which I’ve maintained is the most fun you can have legally in ham radio for $25 + shipping) has received a much-desired upgrade.

The upcoming Ultimate 3 will sport a cool new blue backlit LCD! This will make things much easier on my aging eyes in the dark, dank, spiderwebbed corner of the basement that is my shack.

For those not familiar, check out the page and read through the operating manual to see what can be done (WSPR, FSKCW, CW, Hell, etc.) with this little gem of a kit. I can’t stress enough how much of a no-brainer purchase this is at this price. The build is quite easy and the fun you’ll have far, far surpasses the cost. Just don’t buy them all before I get mine.

I have the first two generations of Ultimate QRSS Kit and this will be my third. The first (single band 30m) is out making the rounds amongst local hams, and the second has gotten much use in my shack, its 100mW WSPRs heard as much as 15000 km away down under.
