If you are not using a Bitx pcb, then your question is questionable. Build instructions are for using a bitx pcb. For one-off builds using manattan or ugly method you just need to decide your own layout and construction sequence.
I'm going to start building the BITX 14MHz build. It's going to be my first homebrew transceiver project so I will be learning as I go. The instructions say to solder the transistors first but since this is my first go around, I'm not really sure where I should put them on the PCB. I'm going to use Manhattan construction using the QRPme Little MeSquares. So if anyone has any tips or pointers for a newbie, I will be greatly appreciated.
