Just thought some you might want to see the CW transceiver I’ve just finished. I starting building this rig in March 1999! I’ve recently been putting the Sparkford in an aluminium box to allow me to use this rig for SOTA. I bought the PCB from Walford Electronics. The Sparkford is no longer available, but G3PCJ (Tim Walford) does make a very similar kit called the Brent, which I presume is an updated design. Website:
I can really recommend Tim’s kits, they are good quality and the instructions are very clear. The price is also reasonable, although of course kits from the USA can be cheaper due to the strength of the Dollar.
My next portable rig will hopefully be a Rock-Mite 20. I have an Altoids tin ready and waiting. My rig has been ordered, but there is a backlog.

73 and hope to work someone from the Summit with the Sparkford very soon!
