One of Those Days When Things Don't Go As Planned

We all have them now and then. 

The story can be as simple or as involved as you'd like.  It's to test this circuit. 

That was supposed to happen this afternoon, but problems got in the way.  On the left is my antenna for 80 and 40 meters.  On the right is a radio tuned to 160 meters.  That makes the antenna very short electrically, and rather low impedance. 

Results tomorrow.

  1. I know the feeling. I'm getting ready to bring up the little guitar amp I'm fixing up, and as always, I did a wire-by-wire check of the chassis vs the schematic.

    Yup.....found the screen supply and plate supply leads to the output stage got swapped.

    Easy rework, but caught me by surprise.

    But then, that's why I check everything a day or so after I finish it before I power it up the first time.
