I recently built the NorCal SWR/PWR meter which has been retired. 

I've tried twice to email NorCal with the hopes of buying spare chips 'just in case.'  Each time my email was rejected and "Returned to Sender." 

Anyone have a clue as to what is going on with NorCal and or how to contact them?

Try contacting Dean Davis, N7XG.

PacificCon update, October 2012

I believe that our kit uses a MicroChip PIC ?
If so, NorCal member Dan Butler, N7XQA who has worked for Microchip
for over 17 years may be a good resource.

GB:  I used the "Contact Us" link and chose the option of "questions about kits, etc."  but this time I emailed Dean directly.  Will let you know how this turns out.

Plan B would be to contact Dan Butler, N7QXA. 

The kid does employ a PIC but it must be programmed and I don't have the gear or code to do that.

Whenever I build anything, I always stock spare solid state components.  I've got some bucks wrapped up in this policy but 3 days ago I had to go to my stock to repair a rig.  Was a good feeling!

Thanks for your help and I consider the question still open until I get an up or down answer.

Update: Received a reply from Dean, N7XG asking me what chips I needed.  Will continue with this as it progresses.
