Well now, here in Orygun only an antenna mount is needed. Yes, just a Diamond K550. Just purchased a "new" Honda Passport and it is back to the dealership the third time, less than 700 miles.

Traded in a 1998 Chevy Blazer with lots of mileage and the old Icom 229H never caused a bit of trouble. The salespersons thought it was a CB, oh well.

Removed the Icom & stuff to install in the new ride. Just got to the mount and kaput. Passport will not come out of park, 10 warnings: battery, brakes, transmission, steering, suspension, etc. Technician claims it is the unknown accessory on the cross rail that is the cause of the issues. Wonder what would happen if a new Passport was taken to a fast food chain and the drive-though? Wireless head set would cause the Passport to go crazy. About 90 licensed Amateur Radio operators in and around home, L.A. Pine Orygun. Better stay away from those houses and their vehicles (if it comes out of park).

Darned antennas, electric meters........... Grin

I couple of great pictures that Paul-W2JTD sent to me.  The group shot was taken by Ken-W2DTC and the picture of Dave-K3ZRF and Joe-N3IBX were taken by Paul's wife Lynn.  The picture of Joe and Frank, I believe was taken at either Howard County.

Im very saddened to hear this.  Joe was too young.  I was at his vortex QTH by the Delaware River a couple of times, once when many hams including a group from New England came down to Joes.  A couple of years ago he told me that he would eventually be in a wheelchair.  I had not heard him on the air for a long time and actually I was thinking the last couple weeks of writing him an email asking about him.  I was hoping he would put together a station on the first floor so he could easily operate.  

The time we have left is rarely known, we need to make the most of it. Amazingly, a two quotes on this passed by me on television in the last day or so and darned if I can recover them now; Ben Franklin, The Bible, Thomas Aquinas?

God bless Joe and Jocelyn.

John, Good find on the soldering iron. 65w should be perfect for this building job.

Your plan is similar to mine with tapping, do that first before building the board. Some careful attention to detail is needed here.

And concur on the filter cap arrangement.  I will consider my options based on the email conversations with you and Frank. One of my issues will be how I'm going to shoehorn the board and heatsink into my modulator chassis.

One step at a time I guess.
