Thanks Terry
I guess the only question is:
Is the right side viewing the radio from the front?

Dave's response to the same question asked in an earlier email.

"1.  The main PCB transistor Q2 must be installed with its large flat face oriented toward the RIGHT side of the board.  The PCB silk screen is INCORRECT.  There are pictures posted that show the transistor installed in the opposite way, these are incorrect."

The manual and schematic are correct .
I love this radio stuff.

Gm all
This question came in on the club inquiry email.

I’m not sure about the answer so I’m reposting it here?

Any ideas guys?

Question about Nouveau-75 ,
 Q2 is a bit ambiguous. I see on the photo page that, Jeff (WA8SAJ) and AC0BQ  have that diode mounted in two opposing directions. There is a note in "errata" on the users group that says "Large flat side to the right".  I agree that mounting in the correct orientation is critical , but who did it right? Which side of the board is the "Right" side as noted in the errata?

   How do I get a replacement since I probably have it soldered in backwards?

    Thank you, Gary KG8LB
