Well, guys, I've built a heap of stuff over a many year period, but have
never used perfboard.
I'm in the process of building an in-shack controller for an antenna
matching device that is at the base of one of my towers. This unit has a 90
microhenry coil therein, with four latching vacuum relays which will short
out turns as needed for matching.
Since the latching vacuum relays have no auxilery contacts, I bought four
small perfboard latching relays which will be in the control box in the
shack. These relays will actuate the vacuum relays outside and also light a
LED, so I will know how many turns are shorted on the outside coil.
I bought some perfboard (for the first time), and took a look at it last
night. The relays fit in the holes just fine, with a small amount of pin
sticking through the other side.
So, what the hell do I do with it? Wrap some wire around the protruding
pins and solder it? Put the wire in an adjacent hole and run a solder
Well, I told you it was dumb!
