Sorry for the short notice, but Pierre-François is likely to close this group buy tomorrow, so if you would like to order some PCBs, please say so quickly! 

Don't worry about the components part of the order, plenty of time to sort that out, just let me know if you want a PCB. The price will probably fall a little as the volume increases, but the likely price is somewhere around £30 if we get stung for VAT and carrier ransom fee and duty. If Royal Mail are still operating by the time the boards arrive, I'll post them out first class large unless you are in one of the areas where they have given up trying, but again, we can sort that later on.

Details are at

Once the boards arrive, I'll contact you for delivery info and let you know the final cost. Paypal or bank transfer or cheque are fine

Remember you need to provide a suitable local osc.  Read the info and the link that Daniel posted earlier. As mentioned, if you are not up to speed in French tech abbreviations, CI = PCB, CMS = SMD, OL = LO

This is the order so far. If I've missed you off or got the number wrong, or you need to change/cancel, please let me know before tomorrow night

If anyone in the UK is considering building an F6BVA 3cm to UHF transverter, there is a group purchase under way for the PCBs. To save on carrier fees, I am happy to receive boards for other UK purchasers and post them onwards. 

I have ordered three for myself. Price for the last batch worked out at 23€ plus postage, that was for 30 boards. There will be VAT, local postage, a share of the carrier fee and processing, and potentially UK duty to be paid (the silver plated PCBs are from a Chinese fab) so the final UK price might be over £30 each.

Read the updated tech info in the link below, and the earlier versions it links to. If you are not able to read technical French and rely on Google Translate, remember CI = PCB, OL = LO, CMS = SMD.
