I am missing two components c4 and rrr and the pages for the rest of the smt install only have resistors and capacitors nothing about transistor SMT's diodes and ic's I would like to test each before I start build thanks    terry

Terry-

Your frequency counter connects to the center pin of the BNC connector (J1). The counter's ground lead can be clipped to the BNC connector's shell.

When you power up with the jumper installed, the Hilltopper transmits for 5 seconds. During that time, you turn the tuning knob to bring the frequency to 14060 kHz.

One of my priority items for this week is to compile a troubleshooting guide with expected voltages.  You'll see it hopefully by the end of the week.

The voltage across R39 (10K) should be 0V in receive. You also want to verify
 the resistance to ground there (w/ power removed) in case there's a short somewhere.

I noted in the manual L-2 shows 17T and L-4 18T. The schematic shows L-2 16T and L-4 16T. Which one is correct?

Thanks!
Bill

If there is heating in Q11 during receive, that suggests there may be leakage in Q12.  Is it getting warm as well?  Check the gate voltages of both Q11 and Q12 during receive, and make sure they are not being turned on.

Low cost Visor Magnifier even lower cost

David Wilcox
 

The  former low cost Visor Magnifier that I notified everyone about previously is now available from American Science & Surplus for the low cost of $7.95 each.  I bought one for my grandson and then ordered another one for me as a back up to take to buildathons..... nothing lost if lost or given away.  

See  sciplus.com and go to Headband Magnifying Visor.  There is also a 15% discount for signing up with them.  What a deal!

I have no affiliation with this company, just a happy purchaser in the past.
