The SW30+ is here!

23/04 to 02/05: 9 days including a weekend, a national holiday and a stop by the customs. That is how long it took the small packet to come.

I had to pay extra 13 EURO as import duties and postal service theftcosts.

The PCB is really compact. I could fit 4 SW RTXes into the one I had chosen, or all accessories: battery, antenna, key, log.

Building will begin shortly.

First mod will be a better polarity reversal protection, in place of the 1N4001 D13 diode. I will instead use a fuse and a surge-suppressor diode.
