Mama Mia! Mikele's Croation Simple-ceiver Video

You can just feel the homebrew enthusiasm in this video.  You can almost smell the solder smoke.

We love it when people do videos showing their new rigs spread out on the workbench with individual boards held together by bits of solder.  It is even better when, as in this video, the boards are atop hand-drawn schematic and parts-placement diagrams with much NOODLING in evidence. 

FB Mikele!  And I agree with you about the stations who call "CQ DX-only."  I used to hear that a lot when I was in Europe, and I hear it hear quite a bit too.   I always think it is a contradiction in terms. There were times when I was sitting there with a new rig, anxious to get a signal report from a strong station, and he wouldn't come back to me because of the Continent that I was sitting in! Pity.   His loss.  He might have been interested to hear about the contraption I was testing.  It could have been fun, but no, he preferred to work VK3 or Puerto Rico for the 1000th time. 

Indeed, three cheers for the legendary Pete Juliano!
