Re: Nouveau 75 Errata help for ceramic resonator mounting

The resonators are indeed blue.  The resonators can have 2 or 3 leads.  
The 2 lead version uses the outside holes only.  The leads and holes align well. 
If it fits "nicely" it is correct.  73, Joe WB0YFL

There are 3 holes in the circuit board for soldering each of these components...

Which 2 of the 3 holes in each respective location should these components be matched with?

Where does the CLK1 on the synthesizer chip go to? Can't find it on the schematic. Thanks.

For those who have just purchased our new Nouveau 75 kit, a sharp-eyed builder has spotted two errata in the manual dated 7-21-19.  They are:
 
1.  The instruction manual dated 7-21-19 has incorrect directions for inserting Q2.  It should read: 'Insert Q2 with the large flat side facing the RIGHT of the board.'
 
2.  Instructions for connecting the ribbon cable were incomplete.  Pin 1 on the PCB connects to the LED board terminal labeled 'CLK'.

A corrected manual will be uploaded to the kit web page soon.

Sounds good to me. I have used a 6 watt exit light bulb and socket as a dummy load and it worked fine. I used it once with a home brewed tuner and tuned for full brilliance hi hi de Paul

Have not tried the lightbulb in a long time but they do work, and be careful because you may see the SWR gradually jumping High! Old school filament lightbulbs are used!

When I was a Novice I didn’t have a code oscillator so I used a incandescent lightbulb as a dummy load on my 1 watt 80 meter CW transmitter to practice sending. Then one day I got a return call on my ARC-5 receiver giving me a 559 report from about 20 miles away. Oops!

Re: Electronic visual aids for working with SMD (i.e. microscopes)

W4OED
 

In these cameras, the zoom is digital (controlled by the software) and the focal point is optical (controlled on the camera).

With mine, I worked as close as a few millimeters from the PCB to as far as more than an inch.

I could get magnification from 40x to over 250x, depending on the setting of the focal point.

In addition, using a large monitor helps to see small details better than a phone or tablet.

I learned that zooming and focus varies with each camera type and price range, so I suggest downloading the User's Guide before buying.

Hello Bob, The Murania kit is a David Cripe design. Here is a link. it is an easy build and enjoyable to use.
de Paul N0NBD

High quality, double sided, printed circuit board construction is used, with solder mask and silk screened component reference designators. A unique, construction technique is used in the Murania, called 'Pittsburg' construction, after the hometown of its inventor Joe, W0MQY.
