The forty-9er is an improved design over the Pixie2. It has two crystals, one for the rx and one for the tx frequency.
RX power consumption is around 23mA @ 12V
Output power is around 2 to 3 Watts.

The Final Power Amplifier that is shipped with this kit is the NEC D882 NPN Transistor.
Apparently, the datasheet lists this part as suitable for a 3W audio amplifier but it has an Ft of 90MHz.
An initial check revealed that the power output was only 600mW so I decided to replace it with a BD139 which has an Ft of 190MHz. It also has the same footprint and pinout so it is a drop-in replacement for the D882.
After fitting this transistor the power output was about 1W.
