I decided to open up the box.....

I am about ready to begin the ATS4 kit. It is a HF backpack rig designed by Steve KD1JV. There is quite a bit of SMD construction in this kit.

My goal with this is specific. I would like to have a small HF rig to take with on camping and out of town trips. This rig should work nicely for a small portable system
