|Miss Mosquita, the German QRPer female QRP Transceiver
(so small - so spicy - it must be a Lady)
NEW! After 3 years in a pillbox, Mosquita got a new enclosure
one Xtal more in the IF Filter,
new IF 4,9152 MHz
PA with modern Mitsubishi RRD16HHF1
Mosquita is a typical "Made in Old Europe" Kit-Design.
What does this mean?
What do you get if have built Miss Mosquita?
Starting in April 2006 Mosquita got a new, more functionally enclosure. It´s made from a very stable 100mm x 100mm x 25mm Aluminia Profile and offers space for usable optional Addons like the Universal RIT, a PK4 keyer, the Micro SWR Meter, a PLL CW Indicator and even a Digital readout.

|The History of Miss Mosquita
The tries to minimize QRP Transceivers like Pixie, FOXX, Rockmite and others have driven us to design our own project. Crazy as we are, we planned from the very beginning to beat all other designs by including the quality of a much bigger transceiver into the same pill box the others use without limitations.
During the discussion process we followed 3 different design ideas but at the end we came out with a downsized sparrow transceiver. We named it Miss Mosquita because it was such a hot little thing as only a girl can be. Its called Mosquita, because a Mosquito allways is the winner even in the most worst PileUp
Here you see some Pictures of the first prototype. BTW, the hand you see at the left picture is the hand of the genious German QRP Club Designer Peter Solf, DK1HE who designed most of the German Club kits like Black Forest Transceiver, Hohentwiel 2m SSB/CW, Tramp-8 CW Transceiver and a lot more.

|While building the prototypes we learned, that Miss Mosquitas VFO gots instable if power was greater 2 Watt output. So we built a second variation into an encosure made from PCB material. This gave us the chance to use a heat sink. Also we now had space for an iambic keyer PK3, a micro VSWR Meter and a 10 turn Pot . This has been covered by several kit builders with excellent results.|

|Early in 2006 we decided to give Mosquita an own, more professional enclose because she is worth to get it|
