Sorry, the picture is upside down and all the electrons are going to fall out. Anyway, i started building a new receiver project and just for giggles decided to start in the middle and work my way out from there. So i am building the IF strip. Starting with the first IF amp I put it together and put power on it and nothing. Checked to make sure its wired right, it is, check all component values they are correct, checked the orientation of the transistor and its in the right way. So I walked away and left it sitting on the bench after doing my head in for a few hours. So tonight i take another look at it and think, well i will pull out every component and check it on the component tester. Being colour blind this is the only way I can tell if a resistor is the right value or not. So i rip out the emitter resistor and its 15o. K not R. Change that and everything works. Its always the idiot on the end of the soldering iron that is the problem. Nothing more. Anyway, now i can go back to doing what I was going to be doing in the beginning, measuring some impedance's without the 4:1 transformer there so i know what I am dealing with when i match it up to the xtl filter.
