Receiver and oscillator working together

Yipii.. I finished building the oscillator board tonight. And then it was time to connect it to the receiver board and antenna for the first time. Power on and nothing heard. checking oscillator with the scope.. flat.. nothing. Hm.. moved the – power cable. to a better connection point. just used an aligator clip. whoa.. looking good on the scope and careful tuning on the VFO-pot.. Noise.. sound.. and there.. SM1ALH on nice and clear CW. Holy smoke its working! Tomorrows work will be to put it all on a groundplane and start to put it in a box. Drill holes for the pots on the front. Will post pics and a sound clip tomorrow. Now bedtime.
