It started raining again Sunday afternoon, so a perfect opportunity to resume construction 😉
First, attach the DSP Board to the back of the front panel.
Attach the front panel to the main chassis.
Initial power on test, fortunately no smoke escaped!
Synthesiser board installation. This (along with the oscillator board above) was the most difficult board to install, requiring lots of patience as I kept dropping the washers into the chassis.
Power Amplifier Shield
General coverage Receive filters, Noise Blanker, and Lithium Ion Battery.
Forgot to take a picture of the 100W PA going in. All built now, just needs calibration.
Pretty much everything checked out ok. I still have to calibrate the TXCO, though as it is, it is probably more than adequate for my needs. Now I just need to get time to get on the air.
Thank you Elecraft.
