Here’s what Red-Eyed Louie, his cousin Sunspot Louie, and all the other good QRP folks have been buzzing about about this morning…

Penntek TR-45 Lite

It’s a a 4-band 5-watt CW transceiver covering the 80-75, 40, 30, and 20 meter bands. Full band coverage is provided, with the transmitter optimized for the CW band portions. The receiver is provided with both narrow and wide band IF filters, and CW and SSB detectors. An illuminated front panel meter shows “S” units on receive, and power output (forward or reverse) while transmitting. The meter also will display the battery state of charge.

No price listed and you can’t buy it. Yet. No mention of an internal auto-tuner but that’s not a deal-breaker for something pretty as that!
