Default P101

Buy Rod's boards. As noted above, this is his "bread and butter". I have built several P3A's and will be finishing a couple of 101's shortly. His prices are quite reasonable in my opinion.

Built one and Rod's PCBs are a bargain. He's got the P101 boards at a lower price at the moment as there was a slight error in the latest batch.

I don't think Rod's going to get rich from selling his boards and he needs support for his R&D and brilliant web site which is like a one stop shop for the DIYer.

I have also bought the boards from Rod (4 p3a, 2 lm 3875 and 2 DOZ) and he is very very helpful if you run into any problems or have questions. I think his prices are cheap, and boards work just fine .

Buy the board from Rod if you decide to build his projects or just roll your own.

how stupid are all of you?

I'm not asking for a copy of his work, i'm asking if somebody has made their own board design for this.

So why don't you all calm down and take a chill pill.

And, yes. 30 dollars for a piece of pcb with copper is a ripoff.

Not when I look at the few boards I have tried to make. I think professionally made boards are a bargain compared to the cost of my learning curve, time and materials (some wasted) and health risk. What do you plan to do with the etchant afterwards?

I think that is the reason most people were trying to steer you Rod's boards, not thinking that you are trying to rip off Rod's work.

Careful with the broadside insults, or you might not get the help you need later on in your project.

The only way anyone would know component values etc for this project would be if they have purchased Rod's board. Therefore, own design or not would be stealing Rod's work.

Besides, as noted, you can't just slap tracks together on a bit of board and have it work - there are numerous issues to attend to when laying out a power amplifier PCB. Rod's PCB's have all of these issues worked out already, well worth the expense when you consider you're not likely to get it right first time around.

last time i checked, the schematic is free...

and about the etchant, I collect it in a bottle and bring it to the hazardous waste day our town has


And I guess you are right, I'm just aggrivated people thought I wanted to steal from him. I was just asking if there were anyone like me who prefers to make things from scratch and wouldn't mind sharing the board layout they came up with with me.

If for what ever reason you do want to lay out a board for a design where he does offer a board, Rod's normal request is that you purchase the boards from him to support the site and give them away to someone.

Good way to support his site as well as get new folks involved.

Well, as you said, the schematic is free. If you are so bent on paying next to nothing for the PCB, sit down, design the board and etch it. It should cost you next to nothing. I don't see what the problem is. Don't expect people to come out of the woodwork to help you rip the guy off, when you rip the guy off yourself. DUH.......
