  1. Cringing at the cost of the wasted PCB real estate in that cover photo! Maybe it’s an RF thing…

    1. There are many reasons for creating PCBs of a specific (not the smallest possible) size. I didn’t read the article about that project, so I don’t know what their reasoning was.

      The item shown is the Funk Amateur FA-AS Automatic Antenna Selector. It is a kit sold by Funk, apparently available for pre-order (I found the product website and did a Google Translate; I’m assuming “pre-bookable” means “available for pre-order”).

      To wit, the standard Icom transceiver that this is designed to compliment measures 240mm W x 239mm D. The dimensions of the FA-AS are 238mm W x 240mm D.
