This list of manufacturers and suppliers of amateur radio kits does not pretend to "ever" be complete!
I consider the following as worthy of mention, and worthy of the time you will devote to building them.
1185 Dolly Parton Pkwy, Sevierville, TN 37862 USA
TEN-TEC offers a series of receiver, QRP transceiver, and accessory kits that are built just like we did them in the "good old days" ... except with modern components.
P.O. Box 69, Aptos, CA 95001-0069 USA
The DZ Company, LLC
710 Grove Ct., Loveland, CO 80537 USA Phone: 1-877-HAM-SHACK (1-877-426-7422) or 970-667-2254 (local for northern Colorado)
The "Sienna" HF Receiver/Transceiver Kit is modular. This XCVR kit offers features not found on any other XCVR kit or even commercially built units. IMHO, definitely worth looking into. They also offer the "Sedona" Station Accessory/SDR Kit.
PO BOX 900 Spit Junction NSW 2088 AUSTRALIA
Home of professionally designed QRP SDR transceivers.
The video demos by young Josh, VK2FJDX, are a pure delight! (The video dates back to October 2009. Josh is older now! ;)
Below is a list of manufacturers and suppliers of QRP radio kits that I find to be worthy of note. Even if some are somewhat sophisticated projects, most are small, easy to assemble QRP (low power transmitter output) kits.
The following resources are presented in no particular order, although the more "complex" ones (IMHO) tend to "percolate" to the top.
TAPR Tucson Amateur Packet Radio Corp
PO BOX 852754, Richardson, TX 75085-2754 USA Phone: 972-671-TAPR (8277)
Amateur radio kits for the more technically inclined among us. Quoting from their Web site "TAPR and the HPSDR group are working together to bring an open SDR platform to Amateur Radio".

Makers of the HB-1B MK2 4 band QRP CW transceiver and other QRP radio kits and accessories.
The Four State QRP Group
This group of "relaxed" QRP enthusiasts offers a selection of "must have" QRP kits. They are very well engineered and designed. Most of all, they are easy to assemble, even for newbies! I find their love for QRP contagious:;-)
