Chinese ATU & RockMite (sort of clone)

I have a couple of these things coming to me.

The descriptions are priceless for the translations "not welded, delivery is scattered electronic components but I seriously applaud those who do not have English as a first language trying to enter the homebrew market.

As I am sure many have discovered some Chinese productions are perfect copies or clones, some PCB are very good quality some are very poor. I really liked the HB-1A and later qrp tcvr's which were very close to others we already knew well. Tentec now have taken them on and there is a nice series of qrp tcvrs available.

The ATU seems to sit somewhere between a ZM2/ BLT and an ATU I have seen from a JA station.

The @rockMite' looks a log way from the original by Dave Benson of the same name.

The LM317 1A adjustable regulators i have in the workshop are from the same source and the build quality was fine. These will be component kits.

Anyway I'll be building and will blog them here.

I have some SDR from Kanga to build as well.
