Dave Richards, AA7EE constructs The WBR by N1BYT

Thanks to Bill at the SolderSmoke blog for posting a link to Dave Richards' construction project. He made a slick version of the Wheatstone Bridge Receiver, a regenerative variant created by N1BYT and published in More QRP Power. I've looked at this receiver before, and found the design to be pretty interesting, but Dave goes above and beyond by showing all the things my projects lack in great abundance: like neatness, care, and planning. Check it out:
