Hey Dennis, I love the new box! That looks great. You just don't ever stop, do you :-)

Hi Don
Just finished blowing a foot of snow off my driveway, and stopped off at the post office.

You should have the PCB, programmed PicChip, programmed Arduino by Tuesday.

I'll PM the tracking number.

I just signed up for the digital and analog copies of the Model Aviation magazine last night. My credit card has been billed, but so far, no access to the February MA magazine. My e-mail account isn't recognized. Hopefully, they're doing it manually, and I'll have access on Monday???

Yeah, I've looked at those displays, will have to try one sometime.

But, using one of them in the BattIR project would require a new circuit board layout, and total redo of the software / display interface. And, the OLED 128X64 display is somewhat smaller and near double the cost of the 20X4 LCD display used in the BattIR project.

The Ebay OLED units are far smaller, and much less expensive though.

Did you ever get access? Give them a call on the phone and talk to a real person. They should be able to get it going in a few minutes.

Thanks Greg. Just got an email indicating first issue is March.

I'll give them a call.

Minor issue Denny, the Digikey link at bottom of parts list is not clickable, nor can it be text-copied

H'mmm
Try this link, let me know if it works.

http://www.digikey.com/short/pt83bb

I'll change the link in the GitHub Digikey parts list later today.
I also added this link in the "Readme" file.

Note that some of the component orders have more than required due to a price break at larger volumes.

Just got a response from MA, they have activated my account.

I LIKE how you covered the two Battery meters!

That link works.
The link I was referring to refers to an existing Digikey parts lists, I typed it by hand to check, that's not the problem. It's just that it is not clickable in the pdf document.

Thanks Ron

I see the 5 Volt regulator used to power the BattIR meter from the 9 Volt battery is on back order. That regulator isn't critical, any 5 Volt regulator with the same physical outline for the PCB will work just fine.
