Another G1KQH bargain

This came in from Steve, G1KQH, today. It is often cheaper to buy the completed, built modules from China than to buy the parts in the UK! What is the world coming to?

I bought 5 LM317s on PCB with heatsinks for a fiver:



Why bother building it any longer, that used to be half the fun! The heatsinks would of cost a Quid each over here, never mind the LM317 and the PCB with connectors..


Happy days

More low cost parts (via G1KQH)

Once again, I have no knowledge of this supplier or if the goods are genuine, or “ripped off”, but the prices are very good. My thanks to Steve G1KQH once again.

Other valuable finds which may prove useful to constructors or groups:


5V 100mA regulators per 100 ( I had some of these).


Mixed Zeners pack:




Precision Ref board (ideal for checking Cal of your DMM) could be used for stable VXO supply:


If you put the word “Transistor” in the search on Banggood quite a variety of well known general purpose come up at good prices..


Orders seem to take about 7 to 10 days to the UK
