Greetings Bill, Pete, While between tasks, I put a little work in on the LPF for the Michigan Mighty Mite. I will soon be ready to light this thing up. I fit everything on a copper board 3.5 X 5. I even put some non-skid rubber feet and fashioned the tank circuit for 40 Meters. The Color Burst frequency was a bit too low for a practical antenna on this small city lot so, I did the next best thing. It's like reliving those teen years, routing through boxes of misc parts and soldering them in place one at a time. The thrill involved kind of brings those days back to future.
I wanting to construct a regen-receiver but, the pile in front of the solder station is urging me to continue on with the Minima.
I love the variety of Mighty Mites that have been built thus far. Each one is like a painting where the artist has left their signature on their work.
In response to popular demand, "SolderSmoke -- Global Adventures in Wireless Electronics" is now available as an e-book for Amazon's Kindle.
Here's the site:
For the print version:
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)
Click here: SolderSmoke EU Version
The two versions are identical, except for a minor difference in the paper used. That's why the prices are a bit different.
