    Then it should work if you turn the circuit through 180 degrees..... or hold it and stand on your head :) I think you mean 'back to front'!

    I would have just built it backwards, while holding the soldering iron from the opposite end! :)

    I built the receiver and got it to work, though I don't remember when I etched to the board. I assume I waited until after the feedback/correction was published.

    The trick to the receiver was to mount the one IC to the bottom of the board. None of the resistors or disc capacitors mattered, and there were few, if any, electrolytics. Then I tried to order a 14mHz fundamental xtal for the xmtr, and one supplier was rude enough to holler at me that there was no such beast. Now to be honest, the AccuKeyer was a home run and I used it for years, and Lew MCoy's stuff was great(even if I can't spell his name!). His QRP antenna tuner/swr meter was as good as could be.

    Lew McCoy was one of the great ones. Loved his QST articles. :)
