Re: [softrock40] RXTX Ensemble, lots of headaches / faulty board
- Very sorry about the board defect! I have built 75 of the RX Ensemble II receivers since the end of August and thus far have only had one board defect.
I am quit willing to send replacement parts or even kits when such a problem is detected by a kit builder. Please contact me directly at kb9yig@...
Again, sorry about the frustration caused by the board defect.

Perhaps Tony should be told.
I'm not sure how Farnell etc compare but the last time I wanted a few I got them from Cecil
