We are doing a kit building project with the Orange County Amateur Radio Club.  We will be building the Small Wonder Labs Retro-75 QRP AM Transceiver kit.  I am an instructor for this project, and built the kit to gain an understanding of what is required.  The Retro-75 is a cute little rig, puts out 2.5 Watts of carrier on either 3880 or 3885, tunes the entire 75/80 Meter band, and uses a varactor diode for tuning.  It goes together fairly easily, alignment is simple, and more importantly, it works very well.  And yes, you get to wind the toroids yourself!
