Board Prep for the VFO/BFO

I’ve made no more progress on the IF board although I’ve ordered some QRPme MePads for mounting the ICs, once I have those I put the manhatten pads, relays and IC sockets in place. In the meantime I’ve started the board for the VFO/BFO module, I am using stripboard for this as it doesn’t lend itself well to manhatten style and G0FUW produced a layout for stripboard.

I cut the board to size, pencilled in the breaks and then used a small (3mm) drill bit to make the breaks in the strip. I need to test for continuity but am happy with how it’s turned out, I just need to solder the components on now!
