This is a crude but effective method of producing quick, one-off circuits. It works well for RF amplifiers that have pretty much the same basic layout and will provide a decent ground plane for RF circuits. Here i use double sided clad board using the 8w amplifier circuit
I used a sharp knife to cut lines in the copper to make the pads – check with a meter that pads a completely isolated
A decent ground plane is vital to prevent unwanted capacitance and inductance. Link the top copper to the bottom to serve as the ground. Drill loads of holes for link wire to go through.
Solder all the links for the ground-plane.
Start to populate. You should fit the transistor and capacitors last to avoid damage… like I didn’t do
That’ll do. Sometimes thing don’t always have to look nice to work well 🙂
