Receiver Build Gone Wrong: Proper Troubleshooting and Accepting Failure

Last night I wrapped up the build of my QRP Labs Receiver project and fired it up. I’ll give more detail about the project itself when it’s done, but as the title says, it didn’t go right. In fact, I destroyed the receiver with the flip of a switch!

Rather than expound on it here, I made a video about it which I’d like to share with you below. If you’re subscribed to my blog, will you consider subscribing to my YouTube channel too? It would help me out. Thanks.

    I feel your pain. I used to build a lot of kits years back. These days, I lack the time, patience, and eyesight for it. 73, Craig WB3GCK

    1. Ah yes, that mysterious element: Patience! I lack it sometimes…

  1. Ryan: No big deal OM. You let out some of the magic smoke. We have all done this — many times. Hang in there. I;m sure you will get that thing working. 73 Bill N2CQR

    1. Thanks Bill! Yep we’ll get there. No doubt about it. The main thing: Learning from mistakes. And I’ve had plenty opportunity at this point 😉
