Some great movement on the txbpf project. All the vias and SM caps are installed, along with the other hardware which means the MB is now complete and ready to go. The photos below show the two completed boards after I had defluxed them in the workshop. I also made some impact on the filter boards. All the SM caps and relays are installed, so all I need to do is check the toroids, fit the high voltage caps and I am ready to start tuning. I have done one board and all the process took longer than expected – I reckon that completing all 12 boards will take most of next week’s build time, but it is progress indeed!
