40M CW Transmitter QRP Pixie Kit Receiver

Wandering around on Ebay, I found myself looking again at the Pixie QRP morse code transceiver.

I purchased for $15 from seller “19d10recon” and got 2 crystal frequencies to use. Laying out the parts I found I was missing 2 but very quickly received those form the seller. 


This was a very fast build. Easy once the parts are laid out and great layout.



Here is the schematic and parts list:

Here is the finished project with #D printed case as well.

You might notice a modification I did in the center top of the picture on the board. I loved that I got 2 crystals and this had me thinking…. Perhaps I want some flexibility with my frequency. I decided to put a pin board in to ensure I can use different through hole crystals.


Have fun and 73’s,
