      Steve-

      Just for the count I plan to pick up an MTR/Case the day they"re available. Have been patiently waiting, and SOO glad you're willing to do another MTR run--plus a case!

      I've got an ATS rotary encoder kit I plan to try with the MTR (Petr sent me the ATS-4 and ATS-3 files to play with).

        Jean Paul;

         Your one point, of Steve's "cute little toys" can be misconstrued, and in fact, were it not for him and engineers like him forming up these "toys", our exotic hobby of radio and all it is capable of would rely on whatever an Asian or other nationality felt would make for a nice sales gimmick for children. I never thought I'd see the day when the finest tube-type circuits would be displaced by semiconductors, then shrunk down until only a few specialists can come up with an item which might be used for the ham radio community.
           Due to the need for parts that experimenters use to build their own ideas, I now receive real, paper-type magazines that list parts for setting up just such circuits, thus we can keep building our "toys" and get future generations to enjoy ideas that were considered items for the odd types of kids, not "football stars". My early teen years were when I started reading about radio, and as I went through high school, I endured some pretty bad taunting by guys who had NO idea of what made music come out of a broadcast radio! These days, those guys are grandfathers who buy "toys" for their grandchildren which have tiny earphones that plug into your ears, and they enjoy whatever form of entertainment they please, from a shirt pocket size of AM/FM battery powered radio that can even warn them of impending lethal storms!
          Personally, I'll keep looking for the item that I can put a microdot of solder on, then call CQ to enjoy making contact with another enthusiast in a far away place!
          Our next big hurdle isn't how tiny a rig is, it's simply being able to set up the antenna for it that some non-thinking type would object to, make us take "that eyesore piece of wire" down. Not so odd, there are "security cops" who got their badges after a foreign religious group did a very hideous act and killed a lot of people. We constantly battle someone, so I'm glad that Steve keeps on performing his wonders!

        Have a fine day, I'm QRT for a couple of days, then there is much work to do at this QTH, as lame as I am with aging tine arthritis!

        Hello Steve
        Hello to all
        I try to follow all the email exchanges and understand what is current (which is done or what will happen in the future)
        I think I should understand that Steve is not a production unit by itself, it does so for his own pleasure, and it is nicely bombarded with requests
        for these cute little toys, it's probably nice to feel useful to ham radio community who are passionate about building and QRP QSO,
        but it can be a little scary ...
        If you have time to show on one page history of small units with their cameras and then future projects?
        I see that you know all this very well, but I'm a little lost, there is a lot of information on the net,
        but not that abstract pictures on some pages in PDF into one document with one line for each unit expliquation
        And what can still be achieved and what will happen more.
        I do not know if there is somewhere the design of printed circuit boards of old platforms and if a manufacturer can do?
        I always try to imagine a unit DCXXB for the higher bands, I have read the instructions in this wonderful little kit 1W
        is an interesting project, but a little difficult, I have not seen on the list of guys concerned.

          Let the flames burn high!  Anyone to contribute strong winds to fan them? 

          I personally think Steve's "toys" are quite remarkable, so maybe we should throw more flames on the gasoline, and start a real flame war about Mr. Weber's excellent designs.

          Now, all sick humor aside, I think it doesn't matter if what we call the output of Steve's excellent design efforts!  I have an original AT-Sprint, circa 2003, in excellent working order, which performed very well during the August NA-QSO Party - a "real" contest.  For a writeup of what Steve's rigs can do under "real" contest conditions, get hold of a copy of the November/December issue National Contest Journal, available from ARRL very soon!  (pardon the blatantly commercial plug!)

          I personally am amazed at Steve's contribution to our Amateur Radio Service!  Keep up the great work!

            Ahh, "small toys" so this must be understood in a simple way: it is for us, we are small players, I feel like a child see on the achievements of Steve,
            I am a fan, I know the technical level of Steve, and I am amazed sometimes agrees to answer some questions on some sites ...
            it really is a great opportunity for us ... you understand the nuance I think.
            I already assembled and welded a pfr3 and some others, and my home made mount are very very ordinary side that these kits,
            we learn a lot by building and trying to understand the schemas is a lot of luck and a great help,
            because it is also the modern technology with surface components, and it is rare now for achievements as complete,
            it is simply a chance to build it

                          Hi folks - I'm new to the list, and posted a request for an MTR a week or
                          so ago (no luck so far, BTW). I see the last several posts have been along

                          If so, please put me down for 1 MTR!

                          Or did I get the wrong end of the stick??
