We have a small box of around 70 non-functional Outernet products. They aren’t all completely dead, but many (most?) are. These have manufacturing defects. In most cases, it’s a matter of the LNA IC not being properly placed on the PCB pads. The E4000 dongles don’t have that problem; the tuner quality is just much less consistent than the R820T2, which is in the SDRx and Dreamcatcher.
I’m sure there are a lot of takers for this BOX-O-FUN, so I’d like for the community to decide who should get them. Ideally, it is someone who has the ability to repair the radios and the interest in then giving them to places that would make good use of them. But that’s all I’ll say about that. The decision-making is left completely to all of you.
