Who wants to be the guinea pig? It's remnants of all prior kits but using the "contest" 6888 schematic. We'll need someone to blame and beat up on. You can prototype this in anything. Ugly cake pan would be fine.

Might any one have a couple of octal sockets for #6's prototype? Can be from an AA5 carcus!

What are we prototyping?

That was my business for many years, and I still have a full shop.

What are we prototyping?
------------------------------
We always have someone prototype any 6888 transmitter design before we turn it into a parts kit.

Apparently this is an ongoing project with which I'm unfamiliar.

Please disregard.

The way Dale Saukerson spec'ed in the tranny over on the contest thread it affords the opportunity to switch the 6SQ7 to a 12SQ7. We will do this in hopes that members might donate the 12SQ7 to builders as we go down the road. The tube is common on octal AA5's and might be more available in members stashes. I've got the 6888's no problem. I'm asking our member Tom Bavis to get the first 12SQ7 to #6 but I don't even know yet if he has one.

Has anyone taken up supplying these kits now that Bill is no longer with us? Am interested in a build, but would like to take this shortcut if possible.
TIA!

Someone got Bill's parts supply but I've never seen anything said about offering kits.
