    I'd be cautious with them. The site seems a bit amateurish and has very little documentation and photos. I haven't ordered from them and do not believe that I would either.

    I ordered a 12v 300ma power supply kit. When it arrived, it wasn't a kit; it had been assembled. The problem is that I ordered it just to get the transformer, so I had to disassemble the kit, and the transformer wasn't 300ma. The soldering job on the assembly wasn't too good.

    My impression is that it's a garage operation, but I could be wrong.

    I like them.

    I like supporting the hobbiest-cum-kitster

    I like their privacy policy.

    I like the ham anti-off-the-shelf attitude.

    I like bluerooms motto:
    Smart kits build smart people.

    What were you thinking of getting?

    Hey Retched,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I want to get the PLL-SFM Transmitter Kit - looking for an affordable PLL kit and at $79.95 its unbeatable value!

    Do you have any electronic contact details for them please - like an email address? The mail address I have is bouncing.

    Oops, that's not great - I'd be quite upset if it comes assembled - I am specifically wanting a kit to assemble myself.

    Thanks for the info - maybe Ramsey is a better, safer option.
