The latest version at 15 August 2015, which now contains the schematic, is:

Here is the parts list for the MiniTiouner pcb if you are sourcing your own.

RS and Farnell are currently offering no minimum amount and no postage. Farnell may stop at the end of the month, so there is still time to get in.

Hi Brian,
Looks great and seemed to work really well when we tested it at Warrington the other week, do you know when a complete kit will be available? I've got the Sharp NIM Tuner and the USB interface already, so I am itching to get one up and running.

Thanks

The kits were sent to the BATC shop yesterday, so any day now.

A mutual friend of ours will be be receiving a kit tomorrow, so you'll probably get to see it on Sunday.

Here are the instructions, parts list and overlay in one zip file - schematic to follow. There was a minor change in the parts list relating to a bulk buy item, so it shouldn't affect anyone.

There are a few minor differences in construction from Colin's video.

Please advise any errors or improvements, no matter how small.

The first batch of kits sold out on the very first day! Parts for another 25 short Kits have been ordered (everything needed except the Nim tuner and FT2232 module). Will post on here when they are ready to go to the BATC shop so you can look out for them.
I am expecting the component parts to arrive by the end of next week.

I work at home until late most days, so if there are any questions, send an email to my callsign at yahoo dot com and I should get it fairly quickly.

Only took an hour or so to build 15 mins to test and fully working shortly thereafter. A brilliant nicely made kit and a class piece of development work.
