SMD Soldering Workshop

03/12/2022 @ 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Rose Bay RSL
1 Vickery Avenue Rose Bay nsw

The topic will be “Surface Mount Techniques for Hobbyists” and
participants will discuss and demonstrate methods for radio amateurs to
use these components and techniques.  The sessions will be almost
entirely “hands-on” and involve constructing small devices to learn and
explore the methods.


Sessions will include:

1.  Component Shapes and Sizes.  Board styles. (Lecture)

2.  Placement Problems and Temperature Profiles.  (Lecture)

3.  Practise Hand Solder small “demo boards”.  (Lab – do it yourself)

4.  Place components and Reflow solder a small functioning device.  (Lab
– do it yourself)

As considerable time and expense will be involved in preparing this
workshop it will only proceed if there is sufficient expressed
interest.  Click on the RSVP link to put your name on the attendee
list.  If you have personal experience or expertise in this topic please

is all about this is a great opportunity to come along for a few hours
and find out.

If any interest is apparent further workshops can be along the lines of:

A)  PCB design, layout software, and Fabrication of boards for surface
and hybrid mounting

B)  Debugging, Troubleshooting, and Modifying surface-mounted boards
