Okay, here are the two last boards.


The radio's power amplifier board was probably the most involved. It includes three stages, each with its own bifilar transformer. All the power traces go to the bottom part of the board, the others stay on the upper section as much as possible.


As I was panelizing everything, I noticed there was just a 10x20mm spot left... I kinda crammed everything there, one of the inductors will have to be placed on the other side of the board!

Panelized board

And here it is, in all its glory, the entire board!

I'll wait 24hrs before running the order through Dirtypcbs, to triple-check everything!
