Re: Slop Bucket II Build So Far
Just finished the build for 40m. Didn't hit any more snags that weren't my
For winding the coils, 12" of wire should be long enough for each
though there's plenty of wire left that longer should be fine.
I don't have a case picked out yet, so I mounted the display at the very tip of the
header. Same for the PCB side that way I can clip in the middle and remove each
pin when I'm ready. I'm looking at some enclosures from Takachi Enclosures.
They're not cheap, but they have an impressive variety including waterproof and
RF sealed enclosures. I'm thinking of the CF11-11BB or EXP12- 4-13, but I'll probably
just design another case. In the meantime, I think I'll put it in one of the AllPCB
delivery boxes that seem to be accumulating...
I found that actually putting the uC in the socket helps things run a little better.
The display showed an image until I moved the encoder when the radio asked me
to select the operating band.
I power cycled it and now the display is not coming up. Actually I had decided to sleep,
but just had to try to hear my function generator. Should have just gone to sleep.
Audio's working fine. First guess is that communications with the SiLabs chip isn't working, but that
will have to wait until tonight.
