Not only are there lots of QRP kits available today, but there are several magazines that are devoted entirely to QRP (e.g., QRPARCI's QRP Quarterly) and nearly every major ham magazine now has a QRP section.

One of the best QRP transceivers I own is the Elecraft K1 you see at the top of the page. I built the 4-band version (40, 30, 20, 17 meters) and a 2-band module (80 & 15 meters) I can swap in and out.
The absolutely best QRP radio I have is the Elecraft K2 I built. You can go to www.elecraft.com to learn more about it. I added the 100-watt amplifier which would un-QRP it, but that is easily switched in and out through the K2's menu.
If you haven't discovered the thrill of QRP yet, I encourage you to give it a try soon. It's challenging, rewarding, and just plain fun!
