      Looks first-class, Jeff. The only thing I would suggest is to build a
      different case for the QS1R and put a small 12V muffin fan on one end
      and a grille on the other. The heat is being generated by ICs and
      regulators, Phil says, and it will be much more effective if you can
      direct the moving air right at the ICs instead of relying on transfer
      from the outside of the case.
