X1M 5-Band QRP Transceiver Kit PLATINUM Edition

The X1M is a small 5-band QRP transceiver for 80/40/20/15/10m for SSB and CW with 5 watts output power. The device has a continous receive coverage from 0.1 to 30MHz.

X1M X1M Front

The transmitter is continous up to 30MHz 'in principle', but there are harmonic filters only for the bands 80/40/20/15/10m. For operation outside of these bands a separate (external) low-pass filter is required.

The supply voltage ranges from 9.6V to 14.5V. While receive, the small radio needs only 350mA, in the case of transmission the power consumption goes up to max. 1200mA.

An automatic CW keyer is built in to the X1M. 2x32 memory channels and a backlight simplify the operation not only in portable use. In addition, the controls can be locked against accidental operation.

A built-in CAT interface makes the X1M also suitable for automatic logging and control. The serial interface (9pin Sub-D) on the rear supplies TTL level(!) signals. An optional interface provides a level converter to RS-232 levels. The interface emulates an Icom radio (IC-718) and can therefore be used with almost any logbook program.

The receiver sensitivity is better than 0.45 µV.

Video: How to assemble the X1M


From time to time there are rumors about a 'X1M MK2'.
What is it?
A new development. The unit will have 20 watts of output power and the 6m band is added. Further details are not yet known. The device should be mid-late 2014 ... available, and cost about twice as much as the current model X1M PRO.
