Yes! The parts are here! Last week I mentioned Farnell did not want to sell to private individuals. Today I stand corrected: they do! They don’t fail to emphasize they only sell to companies. But I found a well hidden link and read the fine print. In fact, they do. But not by using the online shopping cart system. You have to send your order by fax (how medieval!) or email to their financial department. Which I did. I got my own mail order back (!) with their account info. I wired the money on Friday and today UPS brought THREE parcels. Two envelopes, one tall box.
So there you go. The general electronic components are here. Now we wait for the RF-specific parts. And some other stuff as well.
