Hello everyone;

Well, yesterday I finally received from Ten Tec one of the birthday 
presents that my wife got for me (my birthday was April 13!)... a 1320 
QRP transceiver.  I am, however, a very slow and very meticulous kit 
builder.  You know the kind that makes sure each component is at the 
"right height", each resistor and capacitor is facing the same direction 
(if possible), all wires properly painstakingly routed, no flux 
remaining anywhere on the circuit board, etc.  Kind of like building a 
plastic model for show competition.  I'll let you know how it comes out. 
 I plan to use it on vacations, family outings, Boy Scout camp-outs, 

I have built several other T-Kits, and I must say that the components 
used are top notch, and the manual is excellent.  In many respects the 
manuals are better than the Heathkit manuals (I used to work there).  
For one, they have you test the function of each phase before going on 
to the next phase, rather than completing the entire project first and 
then "plugging it in".

Reid, K7YX
