to provide the Power jack, mini phone jacks, and BNC connector.
Steve Weber, KD1JV, the designer has this to say about the upgrade.
There is a users group for this series of kits at Yahoo groups. Do a search for the DC40. We invite you to join, as there is a wealth of information and help there. This rig is an ideal first time kit for the builder who wants to get into homebrewing but doesn’t want to risk the family fortune. When you are finished building this, you will have all the skills to homebrew any of the more complicated and expensive kits. And, if you like to tinker, this is an ideal radio for that. Lots of room for experimentation and having fun with mods.
The kit sells for $40.00 plus shipping and handling. You may order by paypal below or by printing out the order form and sending a check or money order made out to Hendricks QRP Kits for the proper amount paid in US Dollars only.
This modification kit will allow you to package your basic DCxxB in an open frame chassis, and expand your overall coverage with extra crystal frequencies. The silkscreened pcb with the three position switch will mount over the main DCxxB board, with leads aligned and extending down to the existing crystal and ground pads, and mounted to one of the corners with a standoff and screw. We will include an additional crystal, giving you three useable positions, and using the crystal supplied with the DCxxB basic kit, will leave one position open for user expansion. The kit will include the pre-punched brushed aluminum chassis with decals, all the connectors, crystal expansion board, extra band crystal frequency, selector switch, silkscreened pcb, hardware, and hook-up wire.
