What do everyone think about SMD? It seems like more and more boutique builds are going this route, and with more parts only available in SMD form, I wonder how long it will be before it becomes difficult to get quality parts in through-holes. Here is a simple, etchable SMD layout of the AMZ Mini Booster. I left the power polarity diode and power filter cap (folded on its side) as a through hole, as getting the right packets can be a royal PITA at times. All caps and resistors are size 0805 and note that C3 is a non-polarized cap. Should easily fit in a 1590A.
