This year we will be building a QRP Glowbug. This kit will be an updated version of the PP2 twin acorn tube design by GM3OXO.



The original GM3OXO schematic from SPRAT #112 can be found below. Yes! If you closely, you might find a couple of errors in the schematic. They were brought up in following issues of SPRAT and I have that under control. Hopefully, the working prototype will be finished sometime this week and I will post new info as it is developed..

I kludged up a box just for illustration so you can see what I am seeing. I could not turn up any 955s in my cavernous junque box but I did find a pair of 9004 acorn diodes with the same heater voltage. I used those in the Kludge pictures. Later I found a single 955 in a piece of Priceless Antique Radio Equipment so I hosed it up to a power supply and took a night shot of that. You can see that it is definitely a QRP Glowbug!

As usual, the Buildathon room only holds between 40 and 50 builders so there is a limit to the number of seats available. I will start the list and 40 and see where that goes...
