Components on board

Got the components soldered onto the TinyLNA.  It's tough work with the tools at hand (no microscope, no solder paste).  I included the option to have the DC voltage shoot through towards the antenna, but did not solder it on this version.  I also did not solder on the ESD diodes for this version.

And then installing the board into the housing was even more difficult.  Getting the board to stay put while soldering was pretty tough.  Electric tape wouldn't hold it in just the right spot so I had to rely on fingers way too close to the iron tip.  I may have to come up with a different installation method.
