Chirpy 14 component transceiver for 28MHz CW. Andrew had access to some better calibrated test equipment and carried out some RF power and sensitivity measurements both on his version and on my second original unit - the first was just a rat's nest on the bench.
Both on my version and G6ALB's version the measured RF power out was in excess of 200mW, which is around 2-3dB more than I had crudely measured. The RX sensitivity on both was such that below -100dBm (around 2uV) was audible in our earpieces in a quiet room. Backwave carrier on TX was rather too high at around -10dBm. Second harmonic was also only around -6dB, so a low pass filter is really a necessity apart from casual short tests.
It does seem that the simple design is reproducible and its performance not at all bad for something this simple. The only major shortcoming is the chirp.
