Dummy Ordered!

Well after humming and hawing, I finally just pushed the button on the dummy load project and ordered the PCBs from JLCPCB (via EasyEDA). I figured I can’t go too wrong, it seems most electronics youtubers seem to like it fine. I think the only thing that could go wrong is I made some mistake on the PCB layout, though I did check it over three times. You never know, Murphy might show up. Still, either way it will be a learning experience and if this works out (as it likely will) I will have more boards made up. I find this all very exciting!

Here is the layout I sent them:
