First soldering project

d balfour <davesters@...>

My wife ke0qfr wanted a project to practice soldering on. I suggested that she try the Pixie.

Seemed like most Chinese distributed kits contained a 7.023 mc crystal. Out of band for a General. We both scoured the web and found one on Ebay that includes a socket and a selection of crystals. The distributor is US based, should have delivery in a few days. I found an altoids tin a case.

She has been working on ditties for some time and although she is not ready for much of a qso, is getting there.
