Hello All,

For those who like to know more about the SDR0ne project:


I received the following message from, João De Marco, PY2WM and
João asked me to communicate this to the rest of us.

Dear Rein,

Edson and I did begin setting up for the PY amateurs, lately we've been 
directing our efforts towards a wider group and the SDRZero kit is being 
sent to some countries in Europe, also Japan and the US.

That's the reason for the brief summary in English; We intend to 
translate all pertaining text.

The basic kit costs US$46 and this includes foreign shipping. Everything 
is included, from components to wire and solder (less antenna jack), you 
only need tools (a small soldering iron with a fine tip is recommended) 
and possibly a head band vision auxiliary magnifier. There is also the 
"complete" option with a small aluminum epoxi painted box and SO239 
antenna jack. We designed it with the experimenter in mind.

We are presently developing a QSE companion transmitter.

Unfortunately I'm not able to receive payments through Paypal or credit 
cards (brazilian legislators are dinosaurs relatives!). I have received 
payments through Western Union (they charged the payer 4.9 Euros and 
delivered in 2 days) and Xoom (https://www.xoom.com/) which accepts US 
credit cards or Paypal; they charged US$6 and also delivered the payment 
in 2 days. So far Xoom seems the best option on my side as they credit 
directly in my account.

One more point; I'm leaving to London on Oct/9th and will be back on 
Oct/20th. I'm expecting the arrival of a parts order and will resume 
sending kits after Oct/20th.

Let me know of any doubts. Could you please forward this message to the 
others who might be interested in the kit? Thanks.

Regards and 73,

João De Marco, PY2WM
