MeSQUARES and MePADS

After seeing Dave/AA7EE's many amazing builds using the MeSQUAREs from QRPme.com, I finally got around to ordering a few for myself to play with. Ordered 2 sets (600 pads) of MeSQUAREs and a set of MePADs. The order arrived today along with a couple of bonus sheets of copper clad PCB. Very thoughtful of W1REX to include them.

Although I'd seen them in all of the pictures Dave posted, their size still surprised me a bit.

DSC01981.JPGEach square is about 6 mm (0.2") on each side, so not too terribly small to work with. The MePADs come in a slightly smaller sheet and are used for making the pins of smaller ICs a little more accessible.

Looking forward to experimenting and building things with these. I don't know if I'll be able to match Dave's aesthetic, but it gives me something to strive for.
