I know it sounds a bit sadistic, but when something built dosen't work as wanted, it gives me a big cheezy grin :))
It means i can ruthlessy attack it, with grey matter and tech!!!.
The first build of the QCX40 was just one such case.
The next QCX40 i built to SSB (3-30Mhz) spec via PE1NNZ, this works flawlessly. no grin here :(
Just built QCX+40M and absolutely no grin here either :((
I find, if a first build goes 100% working, i learn little of why it works, and then lazyness takes over Hi.
my 5 pence worth ....
