The Route 66 Thread is here.
More receiver design. One of the few times that paperwork and spreadsheets can be fun.
"Measure twice, cut once." Right?
Unfortunately, I passed "twice" quite some time back, and am now well into the double digits. But at some point, the soldering iron will be used, it's inevitable.
I am no rocket surgeon, but i have been laying out a PCB for the audio stages of a receiver I am building. Preamp, Audio Amp, Voltage inverter for the neg rail on the opamps and a couple of 8th order audio filters for SSB and CW. I think i will have plenty of space left on the board so i am going to go back and add in audio AGC as well.

17 meters ft-8 just worked ZS6ZP and RI1ANL Antarctica just showed up on the screen.
Checked into the Noontime net on 40 meters today 7283.5 with Del W6KOZ in Mckinleyville, CA .
It is not the radio. Please follow the thread How Did You Radio Today?
Again , I heard Del and couldn't hear you :-/ . I can almost hear Mike and Eva but no further south. I'm another 20' higher (80' total) and very little reactance @ 7.28xx. A second 80m OCFD is going up here, use them both ? :-0
All my best Lisa
I also said hello to Ava, I could hear her just fine. I am only using a G5RV Jr. up 36 feet, but it works great for me.
Thanks Dennis, have a great day,
Last night i sat and passed the US General class license exam.
