LD-5 QRP rig

Steve G1KQH,  has found the price of the LNR Precision 5 band QRP radio and published this on his blog. Low cost TDA2003 audio/LF ICs recently found by Steve are now available from GQRP Club Sales.

For the LNR Precision rig data see http://g1kqh.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/ld-5-price.html .

Also of note is the availability of the smaller FX-4a. A few people grabbed the FX-4 but not many were made. It's now back as the FX-4a at $415. http://www.lnrprecision.com/store/#!/FX-4a/p/45044303/category=10468544

To me the LD-5 isn't much benefit if you already have an FT-817 (it's a similar size, fewer bands and draws about the same rx current).

However the smaller FX-4a covers the busiest bands and might be a good intermediate step between a 1 - 2 band QRP rig and an FT-817.
