Section 7 done

I've finished section 7. The band module for 40m it's almost done and almost the components of section 8 are in place.
Testing section 7 I only have 6.54mA (insted of 10mA) for the quiescent current. Have to check in the manual if it's ok.
Here's the photo with all that was built so far.

2nd mistake

.....#%$"!$#%"#$%, I did one big mistake, I soldered in the wrong position one IC... and not one of the small ones... de 4046 one. Big errors big solutions, I cuted the IC legs, removed the remaining pins, bought an new IC and soldered directly to the PCB.
Bought 2 trimpots for the IF filter and started section 8 without finishing section 7. Will post some pictures later on.
