Genesis G59 Build Phase 6
In Phase 6 you build the Input-Output HP-LP Filters, antennuator and preamplifier. A new skill to master is making an inductor by putting 5 turns on a 3mm drill bit. I didn’t have a 3mm so I just used a 7/64ths drill bit.
You solder all the relays in at this time and a few more SMD components. I did a better job of doing the SMD work this time, I sometimes get better with practice.
The voltage checked out and I was able to see a pretty good spike in reception when I enabled the RF Preamp. So for now I think I am on my way.
Also, take a look at NØJRJ’s blog. He is also building one and has documented it in video.
