Actually, my birthday isn't for a couple of months; but I talked my wife into purchasing a kit for me as my birthday present this year. The kit is for a matching network for EFHW (End Fed Half Wave) antennas, which are easy to deploy for QRP portable operations.
The kit is sold by the QRP Project out of Germany. I figured it probably won't get here until real close to my birthday, anyway.
The article was an interesting read. I am looking forward to building it, hooking up a piece of wire to it; and seeing what happens.
Of course, I will keep you all informed when the time comes.
