Ultra VIDC Enhancer build update

Late last week, the oscillators which were ordered in early December arrived so the Ultra VIDC Enhancer build could re-start and it means that I have enough of the major components to complete all of the boards I have in stock now.

On Sunday, I completed the build of 20 Ultra VIDC Enhancers for the A3000 so now I'm moving on to making up the kits ready for the first round of sales.

This brings the tally of fully made boards up to 35 with 15 being available in the A300/400 configuration and 20 in the A3000 configuration. I'm anticipating the first kits wil be available for sale in the next two or three weeks as the cables required can take just as much time to make up as the boards themselves.
