I just finished building and “calibration the Nouveau-75A.

It was a delight to build. Ran into a problem in that the mic wouldn’t key the radio. Took it apart and the head seemed fine but it wouldn’t key. Was about to recheck everything on the radio when I was fiddling with the mic cord and discovered there was a short in the cable.  By holding it a “certain way”, I was able to get everything to work. 

I made a QSO with an AM band and talked to a fellow in Ft. Scott, K0EFJ, I think.  He said she sounded great. 

I think you have a winner there!  I had a blast. 

I’ll contact the litter about the mic.
