Tip:  When soldering in the 3.5mm jacks, first insert all of the jacks in without soldering, attache the rear end plate, make sure that all jacks are flush on the board, and use the BNC connector with the nut to hold in place.  Then solder all of the pins for the jacks.  This way you know that the holes will match up when you assemble the case.  This of course assumes that you purchased the optional case.

Tip: TCXO leads can be bent over to hold in place from the top side of the TXCO until soldered in place.  Trim any excess wire that was bent over.
