W1REX and the team at QRPme (which is really W1REX and family) have launched an interesting idea of a parallel group build on a subscription basis with his QRPme Kit of the Month Club program.
Sounds like an excellent idea for any budding builder!
The information from the website:
QRPme Kit of the Month Club – 1 Year Subscription
QRPme is undertaking a new & interesting project: Produce 12 unique kits with a new kit shipping each month. These kits will be interesting and useful to all builders. There will be no extra shipping & handling charges or DX disparity. One price gets a kit delivered to your door. I did break it down into 3 options; however, to allow for a modest investment for either budget or evaluation purposes.
1 year subscription = $180 ($15/kit)
6 month subscription = $108 ($18/kit)
3 month subscription = $60 ($20/kit)
As you can see, the price of each kit is modest. (especially when you consider that all mailing costs are included) You won\’t be receiving a top of the line kit each month for that price but each kit will be useful and will have an educational content that will be worth your time and expense.
The current lineup for the 1st 6 KotMC kits are:
MARCH: Pocket Electronics Lab: a shirtpocket friendly solderless breadboard system
APRIL: 4 Port Directional Coupler which is the ‘engine’ of a power/VSWR meter
MAY: Audio Amplifier
JUNE: ‘Fireball’ Style Transmitter
JULY: IC Prototype Board Project
AUGUST: ‘Universal’ Low Pass Filter module
And I will make a further promise: If at any time, you decide that you want to cancel your subscription, I will refund the price of any remaining undelivered kits in your subscription.
Subscriptions will be accepted now with the first kits being shipped in the middle of March. The first kit: the Pocket Electronics Lab, is in the hands of a few evaluators and will be available in about 2 weeks.

I know that I won’t have time to keep up, having about six kits on the bench to build to just catch up. Perhaps I will be caught up enough to catch QRPme’s second season of QRPme Kit of the Month.
