You gotta look at this!
My ATS build is stalled a bit waiting for some new solder paste to arrive. The last I had got toward the end I could not push it from the syringe. I tried hand soldering the 103 resistor on the back of the 30 meter module but must have had too much heat and burned off the metal end. I could not get any ohms reading across the resistor. SOOOO more flux is ordered, and Steve KD1JV is sending me a new resistor. While waiting I have wound all of the toroids and prepped most of them. Today in the mail a package arrived from Terry and in it is a BEAUTIFUL yellow tin with my ATS label on it and says "built by N0NBD" I am about to bust. This is a thing of beauty. I am anxious to get things finished up and mount the rig in the tin. I have a couple tins that I will practice layout and drilling/ punching........ Thanks Terry de Paul N0NBD
