I ordered my kit this week (17 Oct 2010).  Hopefully it gets here before the weekend so I will have time to at least take a look at it!

Surfing the web one night in search of QRPp information brought me to HSC Electronic Supply where they are selling the PIXIE II kit for 80 meters for $9.95.  Needless to say, I bought this right away, then added a QRP Crystal Pack (80, 40, 30, 15, 17, and 10 meters) for $14.95.  

More to come after I get to building...

Got the kit today!  Counted out the parts and everything is there.  Now it is off to Radio Shack to pick up a few parts (phono plugs, switches, etc..)


Although all my parts were in the package, please note the kit does not come with the necessary crystal(s).  It does come with the required Inductors for either 80m or 40m.  This is not a problem as long as you get the QRP Crystal pack.
