      Hi Jose,

      I apologize for not getting back to you about the SR63ng kit.

      I am taking orders for the kit with delivery to start with the arrival of the Si570. All the parts have arrived and preliminary kit'ing has been completed. When the clock arrives I 'should' be able to ship 20 units a day.

      I expect to ship in late May or early June depending on the arrival of the Si570 chip. If there are any changes to this schedule I will contact those who have placed orders.

      There is a small information page on the MOBOkits site with a link to the document file as well as pictures of a completed unit.
      http://groups.google.com/group/MOBOKITS/web/sr63ng-information

      If you do not have access to the MOBO group you view a copy of the webpage at http://tinyurl.com/33syvl9


      Regards,
      George

        As Bob says, the SR63ng is fine. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
        I completed mine a few weeks ago and tested it with Tony's PA/Filt and
        BPF boards and now a good way into building and testing the Mobo v.3.4
        with it.
