If I'd known Elecraft would soon announce the KX2, I definitely would not have bought the QRPver, but my crystal ball failed me and the QRPver arrived today after 24 days in transit.
It was well packed with a power cord and two sheets of specs/instructions in good English. The QRPver is available for 15, 20, 30 or 40 meters and is set to operate on either PSK or JT65. You specifiy the mode you intend at the time of order and the proper crystal is installed to operate on that mode's frequency.
Mine is at 14.070 MHz for 20m PSK operation. Output power is spec'ed at 1 to 1.5 watts. The QRPver is sold via eBay and my questions on the rig & shipping were each answered with 12 hours.
I'll be putting it on the air over the next week or so and will post my impressions of it soon after. Some pics:
