I always call stuff I build like that dead 'r buggy style ...either its dead and does not work or buggy 'cause  it osc's when it should amp or amps when it should osc..

What will they rethink of next?

Is it just me? Since when are NAND gates drawn without the inverting circle?

Ya mean I should have patented that back in 1970???

Seriously I was building at UHF (450 through 512) and a bit at 860mhz back then
and that is the approach we used because etching a board commercially was out of 
sight.  Also that was the pre cheap plated hole era by a decade easy.  Lay it on its 
back and dead bug with Air line (strip lines some distance above the copper) or 
strips of copper clad super glued to the copper.  Usually air lines as they had 
lower loss.

Its still a good way to go for both digital and analog.  Cheap, fast, and with care very solid.
