my entry in to the ARRL Homebrew challenge 3, 10m/6m SSB and CW transceiver

Shown here is my entry into the ARRL Homebrew Challenge 3. This is a 10m and 6m SSB transceiver, currently in the breadboard prototype stage.

Receiver works well so far and I have already tuned in some DX on 10m.

Next step will be to consider filtering the first LO further and to order the proper BFO crystal for USB.

Once these steps are complete i will move on to the audio and keying board, which will first be implemented using a solderless prototyping board.
