New MF transverter ready for testing

472/500kHz transverter built more presentably
Being satisfied with the latest 10W version of my 472/500kHz transverter breadboard, I have now rebuilt it more tidily so it will fit in a small plastic or diecast box. This uses my normal "dead bug" construction using a piece of copper laminate as ground plane with small PCB pad islands to join some components. It will be tested tomorrow, but I am not expecting any issues.

UPDATE 26.7.12
Tested the transverter above on-air this evening and getting reports from several stations on WSPR.
WSPR reports so far this evening on 500kHz
