Pixie kit, for fun

I read it on another blog. I checked the eBay item and I simply couldn't pass on this one ... for less than 5€@2015 shipping included. Most of all, I was interested to find out if the kit arrives with the ceramic capacitor sticking out of the BNC socket, since it is there in all the pictures showing the product.

Most likely I will have a simple QRPp rig to play with: add VXO and switchable XTAL, improve the RF bandpass filter, increase the output power.
