Re: bitx20 3C SBL - Bandpass filter inductor issue


 

Hi again,

It's usually pretty easy to tell if a pin got pushed in.  As long as the shield cans are all sitting flat against the PCB, then the pins on the other side should all be at the same level.  If any are shorter, it likely means those that are got pushed in.

It is possible to de-solder just the shield can tabs, and then pull the cans off from the top.  Just be careful as some have plastic side bits that come off with the can (be sure to observe their position so you can put them back the same way).
