Today, at the QRP ARCI convention–Four Days In May–TEN-TEC will announce a new QRP transceiver based upon a completely different platform than any others rigs they have in production: a QRP radio, buit on the chipKIT™ Uno32™ (Arduino-based software) to be known as the Model 506 Rebel.




And, folks, I’ve been lucky enough to get my mitts on a prototype…!



Read the rest, it's awesome! 20 or 40 based on internal jumpers, Already got some groups running to help develop firmware for the radio. Everything about this is ready to win. Now to raise the scratch....
