si570 Daughter Card

The Jan VHF contest is slow at the moment so I decided to warm up the soldering iron and work on a project.

The project only takes about 20 minutes to put together. The parts are 805 SMD sized parts so they are not overly magical to work this. The si570 (the main component) is pretty easy to solder down.

I hope to interface this board to an AVR (probably initially with an Arduino board) to see if I can figure out how to get these two gems talking.
