These boards have enormous capacitance and other undesirable characteristics. They are OK for simple circuits, but RF circuits need something better. PC boards are great (wide, thin conductors are good for RF). But who wants to cut a PC board just to try something out. Also, this discourages experimentation since you have to do a lot of work to change a PCB. Here’s an easy way to build simple RF prototypes.
