I got one of those Greek C-QUAM transmitters recently and will be doing a youtube video on it soon with partial stereo proof-of-performance measurements.  Its based largely on the Chris Cuff design.

Thought I'd chime in... I bought this kit from eBay recently.
I''ll start by saying that I've actually designed and built several non-radio kits for my own business. I was unable to get this one running.

Engrish aside, the design is very interesting and easy to understand. 4 parts were missing, including a couple "irritating" to fine.
Once I sorted everything, I had a spot-on carrier with no modulation. I troubleshot the obvious culprits for a day, and them binned it.

I have no doubt that the design is worth the money, but missing parts from an overseas shipper suggests a certain level of "I don't care."

Why run pt. 15 ?  Well I do but I live in a heavily concentrated area home wise that is...  I use AM and FM and well let's see  8  5 unit apartments equals 40 + listeners... and that doesn't include the folks across the road, mostly older like myself but so many of us luv 'old radio shows'...  brings back memories of when we were much younger...  :-)

have a great day and a better tomorrow :-)

The eBay kit referred to in the original post on this thread has been out of stock for a while now. I messaged the seller to ask if he will be selling it again. He replied that the airlines in his country (Thailand) are not operating because of the COVID-19 situation and, therefore, he cannot sell his products.

Hopefully, it will be back in stock at some point in the future.
