Repairing My Cool Name Plate

When I was in San Jose for Networking Field Day 5, Ruckus gave me and the other delegates the ultimate piece of personalized swag. This was a desk nameplate made from the circuit board of an antenna. Ruckus offered to ship the nameplate so it wouldn’t have to survive air travel back east to Kentucky. Unfortunately when my nameplate arrive, it looked like the picture on the right.

Although convincing my wife that this wasn’t “junk” that should be trashed was a challenge, I managed to hang on to it until I could get it fixed. The task was quite simple; position the two halves at slight angle and re-solder the joints.

After propping the top half up with a utility knife and soldering it back together. Now I have one of the coolest deskname plates I’ve seen in a while.
