Re: Pig Rig

Thanks for the label!
When I mentioned using a 14-pin IC socket cut in half, I should really have
said "cut into quarters", meaning cutting across through pins #4 & #11, and
being cut lengthwise right through the middle (and trimmed as needed to
yield 4 socket sets of 3 pins each).

Hee, good one John,

Label attached. Printing it on colored paper makes it look much better
than on
white. I like yellow (no surprise there :o) but some builders have used
other colors. Light gray and light blue both look very nice too.

I love this radio stuff !

This little pig went to OzarkCon,
This little pig stayed home;
This little pig ate roast beef,
This little pig had none.
And THIS little pig went whee, whee, all the way home, was fed a proper diet
juice (the 12VDC kind), and her voice was heard throughout the land ...

Suckling pig #178 exited the mailbox in Gnadenhutten OH on Friday March 08
and the appropriate slap on the backside (with a soldering pencil, of
will commence in the very near future.

I would appreciate a label if possible; March 2013 would be fine.

Thanks also for all the crystal socket ideas. A 14-pin machined pin IC
could be cut in half at the center pins, yielding four 3-pin sockets ...
right for one rig if the center pin of the 3-pin socket is used for ground
per some of the ideas and pics at
<> and
<> ...

Now back to tending the suckling pig ...
