Aharon Q107 FM Electra
I just completed my second project in just as many days,the Electra.I did a mod version just because I didn't have some of the resistors,for example 10k intead of 47k,470K for the 2.2M and 100 ohm for the 680 ohm.Sounds great from the get go but I can hear a faint FM station when I'm not playing,how can I ghet rid of this?.Thanks to all,AC>  
PS: I did use shielded wire to wire the jacks and the construction is point to point.

You can try a small value capacitor (10pf-22pf) from the input to ground to filter out the highest frequencies.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
