This Jim N5IB's copy of a WWII paraset. The 4 State QRP Group will soon be offering a kit for you to make your own copy of Jim's Bayou Jumper paraset.... Image links below. Click on the link to see the large photos.

Yes, you can buy this kit from 4 State QRP Group soon. And yes, they have a sticker set.

5 watt TX, regen rx, calibrated. All in an appropriate wooden box. Just like the old school WWII parasets.

Also - the QRP Guys (QRPGuys.com) are now offering a 80 M Paraset. This one designed by KD1JV - Steve Weber.

Prior to this recent incarnation of small radios was the SP-1

Very much in keeping with the Para set
