Doug ND9Q got a sacajaweia.

We now have a reliable parts list for the modified Forty-9er part of the kit, based upon both the information contained in its schematic, and the prescribed modifications thereof . Lack of this list had been a major barrier to prospective volunteers for final inspection and testing .

The first kit is now tested and re-assembled. When six kits are ready, they will go back to Project Leader Matt. The seventh is being soldered together in order to discover any assembly issues.
