Andy -- my uBITX did for me exactly what you want the uBITX to do for your class. So push on.
This groups.io is a unbelievable resource. There are more kind folks here with more smarts and experience than you could possibly shake a stick at.
So, keep a thick skin, and post away. If you want help on any training or class material related to the uBITX, you have come to the right place.
