Just got my QCX 40m kit in the mail and finished inventorying all the parts. I have PCBv5 and Software v1.04 (shipped JUST before 1.05 was released, DOH!)
I received everything plus an extra resistor and capacitor here and there, but I have a question about the 2 lengths of wire that were supplied.
The parts list mentions AWG 28 (0.33mm diameter) wire.
1x gold colored length of 0.36mm diameter (likely AWG 27) wire in the main kit bag
1x red colored length of 0.34mm diameter (likely AWG 28-ish) wire in the 40m LPF bag
Are both of these rolls enameled? Should I use the gold colored thicker wire for the large Transformer T1 and the thinner red wire for Inductors L1-4? Will it make a big difference in the end? All the pictures in the manual seem to show gold-ish colored wires on the transformer and all the inductors.
I want to be very sure before I start putting this beauty together.
Thank you in advance for any insights and comments!
