Gee Marv, you mean you don't have a surface mount reflow solder station? I
think every ham should have one of those in his tool kit! :-)))
Before becoming a designer, I worked the bench as a technician and I'm
pretty good at fine pitch SMT soldering. I now give most of my soldering
work to our production people, but I still have access and do my own
soldering from time to time. So if you really need some help, send me your
boards and parts and I'll solder them on for you!
