"So You Want to Be A Builder?"

This question was asked by QRP ARCI Hall of Famer, Doug Hendricks, KI6DS.   Doug wears many hats and one of them is that of a teacher.

In answering his own rhetorical question, Doug has published a series of articles to help those who are wary of electronic building.  This is a great series and illustrates the fact that a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering is not required to become a proficient electronic builder.

Doug has graciously granted permission to NoGa to publish his articles (there are more to come) on our web site and for that we are most grateful.  Keep up the good work Doug, we certainly understand how you came to be in the Hall of Fame.

A note from John, N6HI

I have photo-documented the construction of the Oak Hills Research WM-2 QRP Wattmeter, and placed it on the N6HI website for "newbie" kit builders as an example of the process of construction of a typical electronic kit.  Readers of the North Georgia QRP Club website may find it useful.  Please feel free to note this for your readers.
