    Lol, I know. The "pop" when my toe broke stopped the fight, the ref wanted to stop the fight, I wouldn't let him. Then he trod on it again and I was finished worst way to lose a fight ever

    Well, it's in and yes.......IT WORKS!!!!!!!!

    Turned out my UP-OCC was too think to manoeuvre and solder so I nicked the middle out of some RG316 I had lying around. I will swap it for some UP-OCC of suitable guage when time allows.

    Big thanks to Alan T & Alan K

    Looking good Oli. What's that other black box underneath it?

    So, I've put the lid on and hum has appeared. It's the same on every input so there's a problem somewhere.

    Any ideas?

    Does the hum go away when the lid is removed?
