can it

VCOs (or the ones I got) come in packages and have a bunch of pins labelled. the reality is that there are three pins (vcc, vtune, and out) and thirteen things tied to ground (ie, the can).

maybe these are really not supposed to be hand soldered but doing the ground plane seems to be an exercise in how not to solder. pile on the solder!!
