    You are full of great information! Thanks for the links. And nice job on the perf board project. After looking at your project and the links, I am ready to get something started.

    Thanks and you are welcome, being somewhat of a beginner myself still, i remember the projects that worked for me and were simple enough for me to understand, build and test.And if a dummy like me can do these things, I am pretty sure you will be fine with them to.

    Building and learning is a lot of fun and I wish you guys the best of success. Keep us informed on how you get along and if you run into any problems and cant work something out, just shout out and we'll see what we can do to help.

    Mostly do not over think it. Here is something I am working on, its on perf, but I do the same when building Manhattan as well just lay it out as the schematic is drawn, You can see the symmetry between the schematic and the built circuit. Other than the band pass being vertical on the board because the ground rail runs down that edge, you can follow the circuit just by looking, it makes for easy trouble shooting when things go wrong. I do not try and pack things in, unless I am making a circuit board on my cnc router.

    When projects get too complex, I retreat to something simpler. This is a crystal set based on a 1933 design, and using "olde-tyme" parts. XTAL SET.jpg
