Bottom line is that this is a very decent and reasonably priced product (about $35 to get to your door) and NE QRP has offered this for around 10 years. This is not their day job and I must imagine you would blow someone off if they came back after almost a decade. To NE QRP's credit, they did not. While their web site and forum links may be decaying a tad, they nonetheless did respond and even shipped me a replacement SCAF chip free gratis.
Compared to the dreadful inattention I experienced at the hands of the Idiot Press folks, this was all sweetness and light. Would I order and build another one? To quote Leon Spinks, "Abba-lutely!"
