G1IVG's QRSS 30m Beacon
The transmitter is a kit from http://www.hanssummers.com/qrsskit.html is possibly the best £10 I have spent. The kit can easily made in one evening and no special equipment is required to get it running.
I have mounted the TX at the centre of a homebrew dipole in the loft of my house. To make the dipole I used a program that calculated the dimensions for a simple loaded dipole. My loft is just 8m long and I decided to make a loaded dipole that would hang horizontal and just fit the 8m available. Each leg of the dipole is made up of a 2m length of 0.5mm wire going into loading coil and then another 2m length to the tip of the dipole
