Oh, it appears, upon closer inspection, that the rounded edges belong to the “rear” of the component.  The rear is facing the heat sink side and the other or front is facing the speaker side.

Compare to this photo that shows the orientation of Q2 in the context of adjacent components, as long as it's installed this way, you're good to go regardless of what the silk screen says:

It also won't work if it's backward.   My board is an early one, I assumed the silk-screen was corrected on later ones.   My other comments on the Nouveau 75:  https://tinyurl.com/w5saw83

Stealth Antenna.

I meant Thanks Doc!

Re: Stealth Antenna (non attic)

WD5GLO Lou
 

I didnt label the very center of the dipole but it has a PVC Tee. I bet a coupling would work as well. Its a flexible kind of thing and takes two to get it up the tree and tied off. It works good without the extender wire but loads better on 40 M with it. My ham friend painted his tree colors with flat spray paint and you cant see it at all. He likes it because he has vertical polarization on 10,15, and 20 meters again no radials required. Not a bad disguise antenna at all. 
Thanks Michael.

QRPKits Tenna Dipper, nicely built and works well. $42

OHR WM-2 QRP Wattmeter - Freshly built, not issues. $95

Raspberry PI 4B 2GB, two piece aluminum heatsink, with Adafruit GPS

several months. $60

80M and 30M Phaser FT8 rigs from Midnite Design. These are serial
Nos. 75 and 76. I took great care to assemble these but do not have
the time to get them on the air to verify they are working FB. They
tested well during assembly and should work but I''m going to offer
these as a pair for a low price since I can't test. $75 for both.

All prices include Priority Mail shiipping. Thanks for looking.
