Even though I am not actively involved in this project, it continues to have a life of its own. There are now three groups that are offering openQRP radio kits. I will continue to stay in the background and offer help where I can.

The US based kit vendor is Dean Davis N7XG www.openqrp.com

The second one, in UK, is www.kanga-products.co.uk

I’d like to welcome a Canadian group, run by Michael VE6UE at www.openqrp.ca

The links on the right now point to the openqrp.com site which is managed by Dean Davis. If you are building one of Kanga’s OQ kits, please use the doc files on their site.

A Yahoo openQRP group has been formed: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/openQRP/info

As more folks build the radio the content will grow. It has served both groups so far but may have to split in the future since the two groups use slightly different instruction guides.

I will continue to leave the project links and blog up here but please keep in mind that you really should be looking at the website of the kit you are interested in.

I still think that this is a great idea and in the right hands will do very well. I started this project back in 2009 and I greatly underestimated the amount of free time I would have to devote to it. My K1EL kits business continues to do well and grow and with a full time job and a family, there is not much time left for another venture.
