Kit Discussion

  • What radio should we buy and discussion on SUSU funding.
    • Probably the newer radio (IC-7100)
    • Probably try the thing with the finance committee
  • Let's order some stuff (or at least plan it)
    • Can't do any yet because of bank things, Darren needs to get access to online banking
  • Anyone interested in a group DIY powerpole distro order
    • about £ 20 each as kit (hopefully less)
      • USD33 for 10 boards (might be more with the improved copper layer) (with tax up to £3 each)
      • Powerpoles for 10 £3.65*2 + £2.65 = ~£10 (£12 for 6 way splitter)
      • Fuses £0.3 each (£1.8)
      • Other components (not much probably less than £1)
      • can probably laser cut/3d print a case no idea on cost though
