LF kit improvements

24W 137kHz QRSS30 beacon TX (ERP 0.2mW)
137.5kHz 24W transverter (for WSPR) 0.2mW ERP

Today I completed the first stage of my ERP improvement programme on 137kHz completing the rebuild of the QRSS30 beacon and the transverter used for WSPR on the band. Photos attached show both of these. My ERP has now increased to around 0.2mW with both rigs. The output from the PA stage in both rigs is around 23-24W. More power will be easily possible by raising the PA supply voltage later.
