        I completed the build of SR63ng number 2, wired it up to 13.8V via a
        chocolate block connector and spent ages trying to find out why it
        didn't work. After checking it over many times with the DMM, the -0.36V
        reading at the output of the input Schottky diode suddenly registered,
        at the chocolate block Red --> Black and Black --> Red.
        73 ... Sid.
