I just looked on the AMSAT WEB site... All I see is the PCB & the box. Did I miss some thing??

AMSAT-UK sells worldwide: bare boards for the

well as a complete kit of parts but without a box.
AMSAT-NA sells a number of different options, all
the way up to a
completely built unit in a rather slick looking box.
I have been very surprised by the regular requests
for completely built
units, as well as the kits of parts. One of my
design criteria was to use
easily available parts (many in the average ham's
stock), but the
convenience of a kit has been very popular, as
have the completely built
units. I was blown away by the popularity of the
boards at Dayton this
year, and yet again at the Symposium where Gould
announced the ready-built
I'm old fashioned I guess! I hand wired four or
five on perf board before
doing the PCB. FWIW I estimate there are now 650
boards out there. Not
sure how many are actually built and how many are on
the "things to do" pile!
Judging by the number of enquiries I get, I am
