Today I got a knock on the door – it was the mail lady with a much-anticipated package from Russia. It’s the PCB for my SDRHAM! It’s a *LOT* smaller than I thought – and boy are there some very small, intricate pieces that will need to get soldered to this board. I’ll have to brush up on my soldering skills – I’ve never soldered surface-mount before! If you’re not familiar with the SDRHAM project, check out this Google Site and Yahoo Group with lots of info.
I haven’t even started ordering the parts for this yet, the Bill of Materials is pretty huge. It’ll have to wait until we’re moved and settled into our new place in Detroit. In the meantime I’ll just have to get a lot of use out of my Baofeng BF-F8+ (you can see it in the background).
