Thanks Barry
Will do that next year.
I ordered two boards so I can do local testing talking to my self hi hi.
No idea of an enclosure yet but will include your display on each me thinks 😉

Hi Nick

at least 5 have been built as beta testers in the UK so far. Ask me for the sketch when you want to build one.

The article in SP seems to have got a bit ammended as there should also have been a photo of the mounted board.

It looks a very interesting  addition.

Second manufacturing run Update #5

Tim - VK2XAX
 

Hi all,

I've spent 1/2 the day reconciling the Fundrazr transactions against the interest list.

I've updated the interest list with those who have paid...

http://tiny.cc/7jvmsz

If you have paid but its not showing on the list, please email me direct at VK2XAX@skybase.net instead of responding to this list.


According to the FR transaction list, I have an additional 25 people who have bought things but are _NOT_ on my interest list!

This has caused me some level of trepidation since this has skewed the ordering  and my tracking.

Additionally quite a few people have varied their orders both up and down just to make things interesting!

I'll update the tracking sheet with the additional people and the order variances soon.


If you are one of those who did register your interest but have not yet paid up please do so soon.

The Fundrazr campaign only has 12 days left to run,and I'd really like to be able to place the order with the manufacturers after that.


I will also be emailing a reminder to those who haven't paid directly

regards

Tim

Hi Ben,

Probably not, you best path for action would be to contact Fundrazr with your question.

Hi Steen,
Yes, its OK. I've had a few people come in late and one or two drop out so it will all be good in the end.
This weekend I hope to email all those who haven't paid to see if they are still interested and hopefully we'll reach target soon after that :)
cheers

Hi all,

To everyone who has ended up on the second round list...

the Fundrazr site to collect funds for the second round of manufacturing is now live here...

https://fundrazr.com/122GHzProjectrun2

The cost of the made board has increased slightly from last time to $144USD

The cost of the horn antennas has remained the same.

Please read everything I have written on the intro page. I've even written an FAQ

Hopefully it will answer all your questions.

You can place & pay for your orders via the campaign web site.

Hopefully we can hit our target quickly and get the actual manufacturing under way.

Hi Göran,

Thanks for the offer, but I am good. I will update the sheet this weekend.

The day job has kept me pretty busy this last month or so but I'm on top of it now and have a bit more free time to address the paper work.

Hi Tim,
I have been away to do some work so I'm not realy in touch with things. As it looks like at the moment I'm a bit pressed in time. If there is any one who would like to take over my reservation for two units please feel free to offer it to the person. If there are no one intterested i will ofcourse homur my obligation.

Hi All
Initial version of the new pcb design of IQ module by Paweł SQ1GQC.
In our TRV mounting concept we do not use the RS232 socket.
The programming signals are led out by wires to the 3.5 mm mini jack socket.
There are two holes that we used to fix the pcb I/Q.
