Most of my parts have arrived and I am beginning the process of planning my first official scratch build. For sure this is not a true scratch built radio like the OMs who had to learn 20 WPM CW in the 50s. BUT my goal here is to complete a project from a schematic and learn a little about what challenges I will face in the planning phase of circuits. I’m confident there will be LOTS of little lessons along the way….
I’m a relatively new ham. Got my license, joined a club and I’m having fun! I enjoy CW, pedestrian mobile, backpacking, and I dream of building radios at some point. At present I have a wife and daughters so my building time is limited.
