Well said, K1CJS. I've enjoyed assembling a few of their kits. The instructions could benefit from some technical and grammatical proofing.
As to their service, I thought to make a contact before assembling the DDF1 Doppler Direction Finder kit, which is a direct replica of WA2EBY's original design. I asked if Ramsey could see any issue with using proper sockets during construction. Ramsey instructs consumers to solder chips directly to the project boards. The response I got was very short, and simply stated that some RF circuits needs limited lead length and I was strongly advised to assemble as per the instructions. Well, a little searching for the original QST article proved that WA2EBY used sockets, and analysis of the circuit will show that the chips work at audio frequencies. Any guesses as to what I decided to do?
I'd say that Ramsey can satisfy some kit building itches. Just be aware of your construction technique.
