There have been a couple of questions on and off list. as to the specific
listing. I did forget to mention one thing. The unit comes with a built in
antenna. For time application not exactly what we want Not easy to take
off since it is a block of ceramic with a pin through the center with little
tolerance. Un soldering will not do doe to the heat sink created by the
ceramic. Best way is to put the ceramic in a vice on its side excerpt a lot of
pressure and it will brake or use a center punch or small hammer while it
is under pressure. It will shatter. next remove the pieces with a knife
since there is some glue. Now you are left with a pin. If you want to use the
hole find a way to hold the board, heat the pin with a soldering iron and
wiggle it out. Did it with two units no problem.

however, this is my place to learn, and you don't do me a favour by saying
goodbye to the group. why not share your knowledge here, ignore the silly
questions of the not so bright, but give them the opportunity to follow your
discussions with the ones that are on a par with you? that i'd appreciate
