Rock Mite

After the failure with the Pixie II, I decided to tackle the Rock Mite from Small Wonder Labs (Dave Benson - K1SWL).  I can not say how happy I am with this little rig.  The version kit I ordered is for 30 meters, and now I want two more for 40 and 20 meters.

Please see the pictures below for the final product:



I found some excellent resources along the way as well:
  • Scott Andersen (NE1RD - best callsign!!!!).  He has published an incredible assemble manual for the Rock Mite... get it here.
  • John Robertson (W5CYF).  He has a YouTube channel that has many informative videos showing his build.
