Welcome to QRPGuys

QRPGuys is an organization of hams that offer budget and unique ham radio kits.


Our specialty will be low cost, high enjoyment kits for the builder that can be assembled in an evening or two. The criteria for our kit designs, are items that are unique in some way, combine features not normally seen, low in cost, and provide satisfaction in completion. Our kits are individually rated in difficulty from easy to build, to ones that require expanded skills. All our kits are initially offered to a run of 100 units and expanded as demand dictates. We lean towards board only projects, however if an enclosure is indicated, we will provide directions for a homemade option in PCB material, or an inexpensive commercial alternative. Complete, detailed, illustrated manuals are always available on this website as .pdf’s for each product. We are always open to suggestions, and some of the kits we provide have originated from user requests.

We encourage the experimentation, modification, and improvement of all our products to advance the art of ham radio. In almost all our instances, our documentation provides board layouts, parts lists, schematics, and firmware for anyone to build our products from scratch if they desire.

To view our products use the dropdown product menus at the top of this page. To place an order, click the “Add to Cart” button on the product description page. For iOS users, clicking on the menu categories at the top will also bring up a separate page that individual product description pages can be picked from a list.


Will not be shipping the week of 10/13 due to our participation at Pacificon in San Jose, CA. We will be accepting orders but shipping the next week.


    !!! We ship to the address you have on file with PayPal !!!

  Please verify that your address is correct before ordering


We ship product via First Class U.S.P.S., once a week, domestic and international to all countries except Italy and Korea. If you have placed an order after the cut off point for that week it will not ship that week. Also, component shortages, can delay a shipment. Shipping rates are $5 USD domestic, $15 USD international, + $1 USD for each additional item. Your PayPal payment confirmation is your notification that we have received your order. When the product is shipped you will receive a U.S.P.S. tracking number. International U.S.P.S. tracking numbers are notoriously difficult to track. If you know of a way, please advise.  Shipping is automatically calculated before you check out.

Enjoy building,
