Starting to Build The Sparrow

Today I’ll start building the Sparrow. The kit arrived by mail some 7 days after I ordered and payed for it, so I am quite satisfied with my shopping at QRP Shop so far.

The kit comes in a nice box and is divided into several sections (AF, IF, DDS, …). Each section is packed in its own plastic bag so it seems that our German friends has done a very good job in designing this kit.



The manual seems to be good as well. It comes in two-column A4 landscape format with the text and diagrams being easy to read. There is even an introductory section for those who do not have much experience in building such kits. Time to get started!
