A friend of mine just bought and assembled one. He said that the instructions
were pretty poor... the parts list and schematic didn't always match up and he
had to do a fair amount of head-scratching (and I think bang-head-on-desk-ing)
to get it built. He was not impressed with that aspect. I haven't yet heard
how well it's working as a radio. I'll ask him and let you know.
