So how many components must you solder on this new board he will upload to oshpark?

As a quick update, I've been working with Jason from Etherkit and he's designing a breakout board for the clock generator - https://github.com/NT7S/Si5351APicoBoB/blob/master/pcb/Si5351APicoBoB.pdf
It should be MUCH smaller and lighter than the existing board - I'm thinking at most 2 grams (if you don't add the headers and wire it directly).
He's going to upload to OSH Park after he's designed the PCB and I'm going to order at least a few soon. Is anyone else interested in some? Gary?
Now I'm considering designing a breakout for a small solar charge controller so I can use fewer panels. The idea is to charge the supercapacitor with the minimum number of solar cells possible while also ensuring that there's enough juice to get through
the 2 minute transmissions.
