So one of the great parts of this hobby is the ability to build your own set up. Whilst I’m at foundation level that doesn’t include building the radios. But that still leaves lot of areas where you can build your own equipment, from power supplies to field computers. (both of which I have built)
I’ve been asked lots of time about this, so I am going to write up my experiences of building things and some share some of my mishaps and successes in the hope they encourage others to build things.
