Talking of maplin. If anyone on this instance and in the UK wants any RP-crimp SMA plugs or sockets then let me know.
I’ll happily send a few (no charge!) to anyone who needs them. I think reverse polarity is generally used for WiFi gear. I have a bunch of each for RG174 and RG58.
I also have a load of other random connectors, just nothing particularly common, so if you’re looking for something odd then let me know and I’ll see what I have.
@bamfic what sort of *box* is what I meant to ask...
@bamfic nice! What sort of do you plan to use? Boxing things up is hard.
The Antuino is a receiver with a crystal filter and signal generator, so can do scalar measurements. SolderSmoke said it was really good for finding spurs on home made gear.
I'm not sure how the nanoVNA does complex measurements. I guess with an ARM core it could be an SDR + signal generator.

Time to add one to the Christmas list!
@vu3rdd I suppose it'll take another couple of weeks to get to you. It would be nice if they made an electronic version (aside from the back issues on DVD).
Thanks to everyone reporting the spam accounts, please keep doing it.
They all seem to be from the same instance, so I'll try and make contact with the admin and see what we can do to stop it.
The release of CentOS 8 was delayed by the release of 7.7 because the project only has three engineers!
I wonder how many users there are per engineer. Probably millions!
@M0YNG ahh, nice. I've heard of that but not used it. Ansible makes sense!
@mm6lvl haha, no worries!
@stevelord good to know, thanks. I signed up when I saw the mail on friday, so 🤞!
