      Thanks for putting me right. I did follow the link from the FiveDash website to WB5RVZ's site, and found notes for the wrong item. It would have helped if I'd started from the correct kit in the first place!

      A silly mistake on my part, and not a good beginning!

      I have built other devices, most recently an Elecraft kit, which was so comprehensively documented that I felt spoilt, but it does give confidence that I find necessary when the components are so small that I could easily miss something. Although not really necessary, I like the idea of tick boxes to follow, so that's what I will do.

      Just been to Maplin's and bought a Rolson magnifying visor. It's a bit plasticky, but does the job. I usually use a loupe,but that can be difficult to manage after a long session.

      Thanks once again, Chris. Maybe we will Softrock 'n Roll on 20 metres one day!
