This was sent to a group that was on my
"club-build" list, but I have copied it to the entire Cascade QRP Club list just
in case someone else might be interested. So for those on my build list,
you'll receive two of these notices. Thanks for your patience! -
You all probably thought I had given up on a club
build! Not a chance!
Here's what I propose:
We'll each build a surface mount kit from the
Norcal QRP Club. The kit will be their $30 S9 Signal Generator. The
information is here:
Here's how we'll go about doing this:
- We'll each order one (or more) of the
- When you've ordered and received the kit, let me
know via email.
- My thought is to give us all the month of April to
get the kit. So at the end of April, we'll know who all is interested in
- Once we know how many have the kit, we'll announce
a build day, time and meeting place that fits everyone's schedule.
- Then we'll DO IT!
The kit is not 100% surface mount, but there's
enough SMT parts on it that you'll need really good eyesight, or it you're like
me, some good magnifiers. I'm sure if you don't have any, we'll be able to
procure them on loan.
This could be a great opportunity for you to
invite a friend to join in. Maybe someone you know who's always talked
about getting into ham radio, but hasn't taken the leap.
Please feel free to invite anyone to join
