Revival of the great G59 SDR QRP kit

There has been a lot of activity recently on the Genesis radio group, one of the latest announcement is the revival of the G59 SDR QRP kit.

I have one of the G11 SDR QRP kits - 5bander, which was the latest released kit. These are great pieces of equipment and serious Contest rigs.
It was a lot of fun and I learnt a lot by building the kit and setting up all the digi modes software as well. These are HF+6m all-modes SDR 10W rigs. I worked all continents with WSPR and JT9/JT65 with 5 Watts.

Update: With the renewed interest, I have ordered the multiband board (160m to 6m + General RX) for my G11, which is still available.
