This weekend in the shack…..

I started in earnest on the TAPR kit for the APRS weather station. I made good progress on the main board until I discovered I was missing a resistor and the 32MHz crystal oscillator. I can get the resistor at Radio Shack, but the oscillator is a little harder to come by. I sent an email to the TAPR email reflector for this particular kit and stated that I was missing the oscillator and was wondering if anyone knew where I could find one. I received a quick response from a gentleman at TAPR who said he could send me an oscillator – so I should be good to go. Once I get the oscillator (and go to Radio Shack and buy the resistor) I should be able to get the main board completed and start testing. We’ll see how it goes.
