David ,

Mine was ordered just this past Sunday and is S/N 172 .
It would be interesting to see a list of people that have them or get them and the serial numbers , especially the group members .

Charlie , W5COV
SKCC #19 and too many others to remember without looking at my list :)

Since I received S/N 152, I am now wondering who will receive S/N's 172,
182, etc...

Mine has shipped as #169. I'm actually hoping it's in my mailbox when
I get home!!! Time to heat up the soldering iron.

I bought mine (#157) on March 1. Got an acknowledgement that said
it had been shipped first class, but no tracking info. Has anybody
bought a higher serial number and already has the kit in hand?

I'll take the bulk delivery and mail your 4 xtals to you. The
postage will be on my nickel.

nets, etc. Each club (such as 4sqrp) could have their very own
frequency setup. That way, the club members could stay in contact
with one another. It is not necessary to stick with 7030.7KHz but
rather the club could pick a different frequency. Once the club
had picked a frequency then the club would buy the required
crystals from whomever they like to put their pig rigs on that
frequency. The radio was never intended to be a general purpose
40 meter radio but was intended for single frequency use by clubs
or nets. I remember when I was about 16 years old, the one of the
local AM radio stations was giving away am radios as a promotion.
Of course, the radios only received the single am station that
was giving them away! They had a single knob â€" on/off and volume.
