Making my first contact on the bitx40 homebrew QRP ham radio

It was a contest on HF that encouraged me to tinker around the radio room, I pulled out the BITX40 radio I built a fair while ago. It was broken and in need of TLC. I soldered up broken connectors and wires and it sprung to life.

Having a contest on provided a great opportunity for testing the transmit. After a few missed contacts I finally made a contact on 40m.

This is short video about the BITX40.
