    Thanks for posting that Nigel. I will look into offering a fully tracked solution. DHL worldwide option is about 35 if I recall...

    It was sent weeks before xmas but if it was sent on the 2nd it should have been here, so either u didn't send it, sent it to the wrong address or it's now lost

    Please follow this up ASAP
    Kosti unfortunately Australia Post (unlike a lot of other countries) do not take over tracking of Royal Mail International Signed For parcels once they have left Great Britain and therefore Royal Mail has no means to track either. It is a crazy set up but I am told Australia Post are looking at doing a deal with Royal Mail as others have done.

    Anyone interested in trying/testing a standalone APP for the radio.
    It runs on XP to Win7 and needs NET4 to be installed.
    I would like to know if it works on other PCs without a full install program.
    Shoot me a PM and I will give you the download link. Mike.

    Well finally, it's been found!!!

    Dump postman delivered it to the wrong address!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My humble apology CB didn't mean to sound harsh, but unable to track it is very frustrating.

    Everything was correct when you sent it, the error happened here in the post office were the postman decided to deliver to someone else.

    Whhooohhhoooooooo

    Its not mounted and ready for testing, BTW when I looked at the board (nice work btw) i noticed some blobs of solder on the IC surfaced mounted, has the unit been tested prior to shipping as I dont want to blow it up connecting it the USB port.

    @ Mickz

    happy to test mate, shoot me some details

    Cheers

    Kosti, details sent.

    Had someone else try it and he liked it, he has no problems with it so far.

    Cheers

    Well fired it up and i must say, i'm impressed

    Hats off to you CB and the team that put this together.

    With my dodgy antenna I was able to find 41 DAB stations, not to shabby at all

    Now with some tweaking of the standalone app, when I open the app, it toggles on/off (radio module) then I press OFF to turn it on and it works,

    if it didnt need the jack and has audio over USB it would be a winner

    Well done

    Glad it arrived. AusPost needs pestered for adding tracking on inbound trackable shipments. The USA and a few other countries do it.

    has the unit been tested prior to shipping as I dont want to blow it up connecting it the USB port.
    All units are tested prior to shipping.

    Well fired it up and i must say, i'm impressed

    Hats off to you CB and the team that put this together.
    Glad it is working well for you.

    Just a quick mod to the daughterboard (Venice7 module) as i didnt like the metal screws

    I tapped in a thread of the main board so the plastic spacers can be height adjusted if needed and for easy removal





    now mounted in position on my chassis




    Now were would the best place be to place a LED for on/off display, which is ideal for bench testing - i could look for some voltage points, but i assume some of the already made holes could be for power indication?

    Cheers

    Hi Kosti, I don’t think the V7 module itself has a power on indicator port - as in - it has received a software CMD to switch from standby to FM or DAB. I assume that’s what you’re looking for.

    BTW: Nice work in the PC construction on your online photo spread.
