Paul, MOXPD, has put his BITX-based rig in a proper box. In spite of his recent collaboration with famed miniturizer Pete Juliano, Paul used a BIG box. It is not quite milk carton size, but it is getting there. Well done Paul. I really like the way Paul kept the digital and analog elements in different dimensions. The digi bit is sort of floating above the main analog board (almost in a "cloud"!). In SolderSmoke 163 Pete Juliano mentioned a downside of this kind of stacking: it makes it hard to get to the main board. Paul ingeniously solved this problem by putting the digital board on a hinge. Excellent. This will prevent you from becoming "unhinged" when the time comes to fix or modify the main board. Here are all the details on Paul's project: http://m0xpd.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/boxing-clever.html
In response to popular demand, "SolderSmoke -- Global Adventures in Wireless Electronics" is now available as an e-book for Amazon's Kindle.

For shipping from a printer in the U.S. (probably better for N. American buyers) Click here: SolderSmoke USA Version
For shipping from a printer in the UK, Spain, or the USA (probably better for UK and other European buyers)

The two versions are identical, except for a minor difference in the paper used. That's why the prices are a bit different.
