Re: CQ Newsroom Update

Holy cow, I didn’t know something was brewing!  I’m guessing that one of the Phaser Kit owners is affiliated with CQ Magazine and he wrote a MAGNIFICENT 10-page product review of the Phaser!  Just looked at it here with my online subscription.  Unfortunately I can’t share that but can recommend CQ Mag as a great ham periodical.  Here’s the link to the site with the cover and table of contents.


Thanks all for the congrats!  TLARC was the first to build the Phasers back in November!!
