As announced by the Four States QRP Group today:
The Four State QRP Group is very pleased to announce that Dave Benson's, Freq-Mite kit has been added to the lineup of Four State kits. Upon retirement, Dave, K1SWL, graciously offered the kit to us to continue production. Along with his SW+ transceiver series, the Freq-Mite is one of his signature designs. The Freq-Mite provides audio frequency annunciation, and is intended to be installed as a frequency counter inside a rig. Thus providing an inexpensive alternative to an LCD display. It is easily installed in new or existing rigs and easy to understand installation notes for many rigs are included on the web site.
The kit sells for only $22 US, which includes shipping, and may be ordered from it's home page http://www.4sqrp.com/freq-mite.php All of the Four State kit offerings may be found on this page http://www.4sqrp.com/kitIndex.php Additional kits are in the pipeline and will be made available as soon as possible.
As always, thank you for supporting Four State. All proceeds go to funding OzarkCon, the largest and best QRP conference in the Central Time Zone. Hope to cu in Branson on April 4t and 5th.

Between the Four States Group and QRPMe, it's good to see Dave Benson's designs not being lost to oblivion. On a side note, K1SWL posted on QRP-L that he participated in the North American QSO Party this weekend - first time he's been on the air in about 10 years. Good for him! Personally, I am glad to see Dave enjoying Amateur Radio and QRPing again - he deserves as much for all his dedicated service to the QRP community over the years.
