The 4 State QRP “Bayou Jumper”

Bayou Jumper built by AB3AP

Unfortunately, I missed out on this 4 States QRP kit. I do have the QRPGuys version – which is similar.

I’ll do some more research, but I think the Para40Set, which is only 2 watts instead of the Bayou Jumpers 5 watts might have a more stable receiver, and it’s a transceiver, where the Bayou Jumper has a separate transmitter and receiver that requires manual switching.

They both are pretty darn cool. I like my old beat up wooden case that has the “secret mouse hole”, and I do like the black Bakelite cover – but I must say, this Bayou Jumper sure is an attractive QRP rig.

I wish they still kitted these.
