[[ Mos recent Update: 20 November 2012. ]]
The WannaTinker 40 meter transceiver, aka WT40, was designed with the inexperienced builder of electronic circuitry in mind.
The WT40 serves as a vehicle for learning about electronics by doing it – not electronic theory, but how to put things together and make them work.
Having said that, I must point out that there are times when a bit of theory will come in handy – for example, if a project you have lovingly assembled simply sits there and does nothing at all, it may be helpful to know a little about how components are supposed to work in a given circuit. Accordingly, from time to time, we will explore briefly some fundamentals of how electricity acts under certain conditions.
The material you find here is a major revision of a project that was previously published on my wannatinker.com website, which no longer exists.
Parts one, two, and three are intended, primarily, for those who have little or no experience with building electronic equipment.
Part 1 is an Introduction.
Part 2 is a brief summary of Tools, Parts, and Supplies that will be needed to build the WT40.
Part 3 addresses Modular Building concept that is used for the WT40 transceiver.
Experienced builders are welcome to peruse parts 1, 2, and 3, but may want to start with Part 4 where the building process actually begins with
