in Melbourne for far cheaper10-turn pots, Dex. I picked up two
last week at a good price, from previous week's specials,
accessed via the website.

to your left, facing north.

Looking for 10-turn
pots, I discovered there were 3 1/2 turn pots. Anyone tried these?
Should be able to spread the whole band over that comfortably.
Not trying myself - I'll be getting a 10-turn. I have one in
another project - a 2m FM Rx kit. The L-C oscillator in that is
not very stable, so I've considered scrapping it to recover the
pot. It has a counting knob which is useless for the B40 with
Raduino, and I've managed to calibrate knob count versus frequency
(within cooee), so maybe it's better off as is. A new pot is not
too expensive - unless buying from Element 14. $NZ300 for ONE! I
think not! Ebay for that, methinks. I also see there's a 12-turn
with shaft like the supplied Volume pot. The body of that looks
less rotund but longer - might fit better for some? Not urgent
anyway - need a new Raduino first.
Meanwhile, lurking ...
