Hello Andy and Mike

It is a great CAT interface for satellites. It prevents the constant toggling between VFO A and VFO B while receiving, so you will have a normal reception without "holes" in the signal and it always will prevent burn the preamplifier.

I constructed the interface and made the case using an empty electric tape box. I have tested it on FO-29 and VO-52 and it works Excellent! I use it in my portable operations running half-duplex with my FT-817nd.

I have the following information from the AMSAT NEWS SERVICE

To order please send the following either by mail or email as follows:
+ Your name and shipping address
+ Phone number and email address
+ Item you are requesting
+ Enclose a check for the appropriate amount, payable to ARRL
  ETP, sent to attention of ARRL Education Services

Send orders to:
ARRL Education Services, ATTN: Amy Strickland
225 Main Street
Newington, CT 06111

Please contact Amy in ARRL Education Services at astrickland at arrl.org 
with any questions about ordering.
Please contact Mark Spencer at mspencer at arrl.org with questions about 
the interface design and specifications.

73 & Happy New Year!

I'd appreciate a scan of the article from QST too, please, if anyone has one available. I have just figured out how to order the board.
