The Gnat

OK - so I've been burning to build something from scratch for a while now. And today, on QRP-L, I think I found the answer.

Chris Trask N7ZWY published an article about a one-transistor CW transceiver for 40 Meters, called "The Gnat". Here's the link to the .pdf with all the details:

Looks like I'm gonna order a few parts that I don't have from either Mouser or Jameco; and then I'll get to building!

Larry, did you ever build this rig? I just read something about it, did a Google search and ended up here...

I may build one myself just for the novelty of it.
