Super Octopus RockMite 40 Meter radio

Super Octopus RockMite 40 Meter radio – almost finished. Kit cost $15 and case $8. Just lacking 5 resistors that I got shorted in the kit and then debug. Soldering in a couple places is pretty shoddy but overall I think I did a good job.

Well, I failed. I got it all together and it worked but no volume from amplifier and had vicious voltage leak I could never find. Tore it all apart trying to find it. So ordered another kit but fully assembled from seller – didnt want to waste a perfectly good case and I really like the radio, nice sidetone and can cannot to pc. Live and learn. Making some lowpass filters now.
