As we all know there are many "New" hams that don't have much or any soldering experence let alone figure out what might be wrong with this picture. Don't get me wrong, they are great folks but just no experence in the construction side of electrical or electronics.
I gave a soldering demo at my local ham club meeting last year. It had high attendence and everyone who was there said they really got a lot out of it as they had no clue other than what they had heard.
Now that is a bit scarry. I plan to give the demo agiain in a few months with a chance for everyone there to get some hands on soldering up some wires to various lug strips and using various types of soldering irons and guns.
I will include this picture with the question "What do you see wrong about this picture?"
Should be interesting.
