MKARS Projects

MKARS has a number of club projects, some of which take place during shack nights and club workshops and others which are done jointly or individually by members.

The two most famous projects are the 80m QRP MKARS80 (pronounced "em cars 80") transceiver which bares the clubs name and the more advanced Pic-A-Star HF transciever which has been shown to compete, and in many cases better, considerably more expensive commercial transceivers.
