W1REX hosted the QRP-ARCI Buildathon at FDIM 2012. The focus was TOOLS & TECHNIQUES. The kit was a multi-purpose soldering aid called Solder Man. It has a lighted magnifier, third hand parts holder, pcb holder, solder roll holder, soldering iron holder, 6 watt dummy load and diode power probe all in a super-sized tuna can.

W1REX will be hosting the QRP-ARCI Buildathon at FDIM 2013. This year we will be looking at the innards of an HC49 crystal and then 'penning' it down to a unique frequency. We will also build a low power beacon transmitter to put that unique crystal into for a little LX (the opposite of DX) beacon contesting at the FDIM hotel.

QRPme is NOT a club or big time organization! It is THE part time business of 1 guy, Rex Harper, W1REX. All the kits offered on this website are designed, kitted, updated, packed and shipped by 1 guy... ME! At times personal commitments take precedence over kitting & shipping kits so shipping times may vary. QRPme has one of the widest ranges of kits for the QRP community and we strive to ship kits within 2 or 3 weeks from receiving your order. Sometimes it can be 5 minutes and other times 5 weeks. It depends sometimes on what (and when) you order.I don't have time to update ordering status (as a rule) so sometimes orders come in and I don't have either the boards or parts. Parts are usually pretty easy to get! Sometimes they are impossible to get! After the Japan tsunami, certain relays were impossible to find! Boards are more predictable but the cash reserves to order a batch of 100 boards ( when only 1 is needed ) are not! If you have questions about the shipping time ( or delay ) for a particular kit or an order that you placed, please contact me, Rex Harper, W1REX, at w1rex@QRPme.com. Check out our latest kits:
