New, partially soldered mcHF full kit!

Hello,

I have some good news. I have managed to get a quantity of the mcHF boards populated by a factory. The parts soldered are mostly capacitors and resistors, those that were most boring to solder due to their high volume.

IMG_0267But don’t worry there are still some components for your to solder – about 90 on the RF boards and 35 on the UI board. Detailed lists for both boards could be checked here:

UI board here

RF board here

Unfortunately this reflects on the price, because i had to pay for the soldering process. For OMs who are less fortunate and the kit is now outside of their affordable price range, there is still the option of getting just the PCBs and ordering the components from supplied BOM.

I have updated the PayPal buttons as well, so some quantity is available to purchase via the Order page. I am still not sure if i should send before Xmas, due to high chance of the Post Office loosing the packages. Maybe i can arrange this individually, please drop me a mail if you are concerned.

73, Chris

    Cool! Although I kinda enjoyed soldering the resisters and caps.
    The components I’d like to see pre-soldered in are the CPU and other fine pitch ICs. Those are what give me the most worry and head ache.
    Thanks for the efforts and improvements!

      Hello Joel,

      The reason i got some boards pre-soldered by the factory is the impossible task of preparing
      500 components in plastic bags per kit and meeting the demand. Now i still have to do some
      preparation, but it is manageable.

      Agree Joel – I don’t rate my soldering skills enough to tackle the fine pitch UCs, I’d definitely be interested in a kit wit UCs pre-soldered!

    Great that I caught this in time. I have been lurking around waiting for kits to be available. I look forward to the build process. I will keep you posted.
    thanks again for the good work.
