I made a PCB prototype for an LF antenna for my PM3.
The first version (proof of concept) was 3D printed and worked great, so went ahead and got a PCB made (r0)
It did have a small issue and a few things I didn’t like, but it works great.
I have done small batch production in the past, but they are time consuming and usually barely cover cost
So I’m wondering if anyone would be interested in a DIY kit (PCB+direction+heat shrink, maybe core?) Or complete plug’n’play antenna?
If I go the complete antenna, I’ll need to make a few fixtures and that may raised my cost …
Basically I’m asking if I should make a run of PCB before releasing it all to the wild
PS: the next rev of board is already designed with r0 resistor instead of the wire jumper (cleaner esthetics) and clear shrink tube would be holding the antenna in place.
And thanks to @Pilgrimsmaster for the idea, here is a poll so I can gauge better everyone interest
- Definitely want one! So … How soon can you you ship?
- Probably depending on cost and final details
- Probably not, don’t really have a need
- Why? What’s a PM3?
Also, are people more into a plug’n’play or a DIY kit?
- DIY kit
Hope asking this is OK,
Thanks everyone for the help and support,
