Theremin board with two 260kHz oscillators

At the theremin workshop, I was able to add my two pitch oscillators, and tested them successfully at 260kHz. It took me one session for each oscillator (3 and 5), but I was done early on the second oscillator.

During session 6 last week, I added the tuning circuit for the oscillator that is attached to the control panel. (not in picture)

I’ve been meaning to put together both a journal, and a calendar of chicken wing events in Oshawa, Whitby, and the Durham Region.  It’s probably appropriate for me to have my first post tie them in together.  Here is the Oshawa Chicken Wing Calendar!

I will be growing it over time, so keep your eyes peeled.
