ARRL Homebrew 3 Challenge update: wiring it together




I'm now wiring up all of the modules.  This is a very tedious process but must be done carefully.

From the top photo; front panel with the main power light and the LCD lights; bottom of the radio showing the RF/IF/Prod/audio/agc mostly wired; the VFO board being modified to access I/O pins and the 'function' button.

Next step:  complete wiring then trouble shooting of the system, starting with power amplifiers and working way down to the RF/IF.
