Made it up to the mixer stage of CRX1 tonight. The bandpass filter is the next section and has a couple of inductors, so I thought that would be a good stopping point.
Also soldered on header pins for attaching the external bits. How I’m going to attach the external bits to the header pins, I’m not sure yet. I’ll have to try to find some header pin connectors from somewhere.
Applied 12V power to the board, and there was no smoke or flames, so I’ll take that as a good sign. Saw 11.8V – 11.9V at a few places on the board. so hopefully that’s another good sign.
