Re: What's on your Workbench?

Just by chance saw a piccy and had DF1SR on the PCB......emailed Georg and 198 Euro later.........
As you say the '286 are getting hard to source. I have UTsource devices in 2 PA's, 120W is the best I can get.....I am told the Chinese devices are factory rejects.....

Roger that Rick !

A really enjoyable morning, weather was good.

Missed a few stations on 23, nil heard from VK2........

Tried the free sample a couple of years ago, took many months, they even rang me a couple of times.....
