    Does anyone know if there’s any RF leaking from the transmitter when its in RX mode? I’m looking to set up a wireless system in an RF sensitive environment, and need recievers that will sit quietly until triggered by an incomming start transmission.

    Do these have serrated jaws or smooth? The pictures don'’t show the jaws well enough to tell.

    Awesome! However, I’m currently not furloughed, and as awesome as these kits are, I sincerely hope I don’t have the opportunity to qualify for this.

    I find it saddening at the current state of our government, and what the shutdown has done to science in our country. I’m a Radio Astronomer and Electronics Engineer, and I am working at one of the last running Radio Observatories in the US, and it could be any day now that we have to shut down. And the shut down is a tricky proposition. Without constant monitoring, the Cryogenics or our Hydrogen Maser time reference could become damaged, which could cost thousands to hundreds of thousands to repair.

    I totally agree with your sentiment! I learned how to do SMD work following SparkFun’s tutorials, and now I don’t want to go back ;) It’s also become a very useful skill, in high demand at the university research lab I work. Same thing with the Eagle tutorials as well :)

    Anyone know where to get a similar 9 pin cable? I want to use one to prototype with and another to wire into place in the final enclosure.
    I haven’t seen one similar in SFE’s inventory here.

    Thinking about purchasing. Are the Audio output lines broken out to something other than the jack?

No public wish lists :(
