Default Picastar Homebrew radio project

Though I would share come pictures of the boards I have made so for on my Picastar HF project. I only have to build 2 more boards then I can start to mount them in my case and interconnect them and start to receive. The 2 boards are a H-mode mixer board and a stereo audio amp board. After I get the receiver working I will then build the PA board so I can start transmitting. If you want to know more about this transceiver just Google Picastar.

I think my next project will be a Spectrum analyzer, something I use to use a lot in the Air Force but cost to much to own one. I have seen a some nice ones you can build, some use a Oscilloscope for the display and others use a computer for the display. I'm leaning toward the computer one even though I have 2 O-scopes. With the computer one you can store the info for later examination.

Oh yeah, here is the link to the pictures hope this works. http://s155.photobucket.com/albums/s295/n7oq/picastar/

Nice job Bill!
I wouldn't have the patience to even attempt something like that......building your own pc boards and all. The surface mount stuff and the IC soldering, too intricate for me. I've built many a Heathkit in my day, but nothing like this. Good Luck and I'm sure it will work well.
