Phased Array Receiver Board

I spent some months putting together an eight channel phased array receiver to support a Ph.D. project undertaken by Mohammed Alloulah under the supervision of Mike Hazas. Mohammed (aka Momo) put together a substantial amount of the design in an attempt to limit the damage my being involved with the project inevitably produced. Details are published in Circuit Cellar, edition 244. You can download schematics from their ftp site. I hand soldered all of the components!
