The New England QRP Club invites you to check in to our weekly net, join us at one of our gatherings, build a NEScaf or 79er, work WQ1RP, participate at NewEnglandQRP.org, or simply enjoy your QRP with our 73.
My NEScaf went together just fine, thanks to the great manual. My FT 817ND does not have a CW filter, so its a great accessory. I had made a tilt stand for the 817 using a CD case, so I put the NEScaf board inside that case, drilled holes in the front of the stand and mounted the switch, both pots, and the audio out jack. Power and audio in come out the rear of the case. Not exactly "show quality" but it looks OK, saves another box on the desk, and puts the controls just below the rig controls.
