I see you are a Tech Plus, I think one of the TT monobanders would be
great for you. The Scout is an awesome rig in my opinion, but it comes
already built. Personally, I jumped into HF with nothing more than a 2
watt 40m transceiver. I see you're in NC, I'm in Indy and I'd guess
I've got 20 QSO's confirmed via QSL cards from NC alone. I got on the
HF air on Labor Day of 98, in November of 98 I upgraded to General,
and my CW speed is getting close enough to maybe try the Extra CW exam
in a month. In the year I've been QRPing it, I have earned the FISTS
Century Club award, played around in about a dozen contests (mainly
for skills building) and I only need 8 more states for WAS. All on 2
watts and a dipole antenna IN MY ATTIC.

I say go the QRP route, have some fun building your own rig, and get
the scout later. 

But hey, I'm a QRP junkie now, and I have at least ONE QSO a day on
40m with my rig.
