Not a bad price considering BatchPCB wants $51 for both boards with shipping and handling.
I expect for your price, turnaround time is faster.

Are these boards based on RC1 or RC1a?

Also, Simply curious... Why did you go with the 2 board version over the 4 board.. I have not really looked into the design schematics and such yet but I am going to today after work. I noticed that the most common and linked/mentioned version is the 4 board version that fits a cig pack. Your boards seems to be the larger version w/Antenna... ?

Ive never actually built the device, so someone will have to correct me if im wrong here (but i do understand the schematics so its not exactly guess work on my part).

First off the boards are RC1a.

second, Ive never heard of a 4 board version. While there are a total of 4 boards to pick from you select 2 of the 4 to use. There is a main board, a Li-ion battery board w/antenna, a AAA battery board w/antenna, a no-battery board with just antenna. You basically choose 1 of the 3 power board depending on if you want li-ion, AAA, or no battery. I choose to include the li-ion because it is the longest lasting battery and it is rechargeable. Not to mention it is the most popular.

Well guys i sold the last of the PCB i had on hand. They went fairly fast, im considering getting another batch made and selling those. But before i do i need to know how much intrest is left in these boards. So if your still interested in obtaining these boards send me a message so i can know. If there seems to be decent intrest ill get another batch and put them back up for sale.

This is the cover board that goes on the top. It helps act as an antenna.

There should be 3 boards total depending on if you go with the LI board or the AAA board.

Unless you use external antenna in which case the third board serves no purpose. Even if you used the onboard antenna the "Cover board" and the power board's antenna are arranged such that they will cancel each other out. They are basically adjacent, parallel and close together such that they should act like a single antenna not two separate antenna wires.

The third antenna board is definitely needed. It is designed to be used with the back battery board to act as a dipole antenna. If you do not use a third board, the range will be terrible (maybe a few feet at best). That is why all of the completed pictures show 3 boards used. The only time the third board's antenna is not needed is when using external antennas.

A dipole should be on the same axis in opposing directions. They arent configured like a dipole. I tried simulating the antenna and may have done that wrong though, or confused something.
