Re: [uBITX] Key line resistor: OK to mount on Raduino board?

I soldered it at the board.  No issues.

Should be fine, only concern might be if your soldering iron was faulty and the tip was not at ground potential. 
In fact, installing the 4.7k at the Raduino may be slighty preferred,
as there's less chance of the rig unexpectedly transmitting due to an open cable or connector.

There is a 4700 Ohm pullup resistor that must be installed between +5 V and the key line.  The wiring instructions show it being installed at the key jack.  Is it OK to install it on the Raduino board, on the solder side of the Digital connector?  Or is soldering to that board too risky?
