As I’m moving towards CW as an operating mode I took the plunge and bought a Rockmite kit from Kanga. Lets just say its not working quite as I had anticipated. This time I was very careful to look at the various instructions. Lid everything out and then checked every component as I assembled it.

2015-02-28 18.51.57Next time I’ll throw these things together in the usual manner. I might have a bit more success. Power on and I get little in the way of audio, a gentle hiss but not much else. So troubleshooting has to begin. Fortunately there is quite a bit of help for this but to be honest I’m not holding out much hope as I did such a thorough job of checking the first time round. Must be a faulty (insert component here) πŸ˜‰


All good fun and not as if the world will end if I have to spend some time on it.

    Alex said “Lid everything out….”. LOL! Spoken like a fine and upstanding member of the LIDs πŸ™‚ Good luck with the troubleshooting….it’s the bit of the project I always find teaches me more about the circuit than anything else πŸ™‚
