I finally got around to assembling this kit after it lay in my 'Unbuilt Kit Box' for a number of years. I built a small chassis for the unit with some scrap PC board. The unit was purchased from Hendricks QRP kits. I ran a few tests at different power levels and different reactive loads that were put in circuit with the use of a manual ATU.
Certainly the unit works as described and the LED is easily visible in the sun. The LED mostly extinguishes once a match of less than 1.1:1 is obtained. I look forward to using this during my next field trip.
