IF Amplifier Test Build
During the month of November I stumbled onto a Youtube channel run by Charlie Morris ZL2CTM. I was immediately impressed with Charlie's build philosophy: plan your circuit, consult datasheets, do the math, build and test!
Towards the end of Spring 2018, I got the bright idea of building a rig from scratch and making it a summer project. But I quickly got bogged down in the design phase of my project. I never made it past the local oscillator! :)
Thanks to Charlie's excellent teaching skills, I now have a road map that I can follow on future projects. Head over to Charlie's channel and see what he is up to.
Right now I am five stages behind on his "Homebrew MC1350P based SSB Rig" and my next step is to build the RF Amplifier stage. But before I do that I am thinking about building the "8640-Jr Test Oscillator" that I never got around to building in the Fall of 2015.
