      Shorting either of the paddle inputs or hitting MOX button in PowerSDR 1.18 does not cause my RXTX 6.3 to go into transmit. I’m using the PA0FKO SDR1K.dll. Is transmit supported for this configuration, do I need to use other software, or is there a bug in the firmware/dll?

      Yes, the ABPF is disabled.

        Must have been an analog clock.
        Luckily I have 3 step down transformers acquired from work, all our
        scopes and meters were shipped from the USA, so I'm dual voltage ready
        here. The scopes are switchable, but I mostly run them on the transformer.
        I once had to loan one to a relative who bought some Christmas lights in
        Canada, he's since got his own.

          Having never in my life soldered a surface mount component, I'm about to
          take the plunge. I have sitting here in front of me a Softrock 80M Lite
          II to assemble. I'd be much happier if it was all nice bulky through
          hole components, but it isn't, and it look as if more and more kit are
          going to be surface mount stuff. I've ordered a headband magnifying
          visor already, but I suspect my old bulky RS 40W iron isn't going to be
          up to the task. What do you lot recommend for soldering surface mount
          stuff?

          I've also got one of the little Genesis 1W 30M transmitter kits on the
          way. It just looked like it would be fun to build and play with. If
          this 80M softrock goes well, I might have to get a 30M version to
          compliment the Q5.

              I use the Hobby Lobby embossing tool also, for 'rework' the trick is to use a piece of thin cardboard with a hole slightly larger than the device you are removing to protect the surrounding circuitry. I made a funnel shaped attachment from stainless steel to concentrate the air/heat flow and use a Triac type 'lamp dimmer' circuit to control the blower speed and heat on the embossing tool (Makes a good soldering pencil heat controller too)

              I have to give credit where credit is due here, the original idea came from Cash Olsen KD5SSJ which is also a good guy to get SMT paste solder from
