A tiny box arrived in the post this morning, containing the DC20B kit from Hendricks QRP Kits. It has taken nearly 4 weeks from placing the order. It's a long time to wait, but this is an acceptable price to pay for the much lower shipping cost. It also arrived stamped "Customs cleared" with no VAT to pay - another major saving.
I'll probably put it on the shelf for now, as I have a couple of other radio projects that still need finishing off. But I'm looking forward to building it.
