Thunderbolt group buy: MORE kits and NEW price.

Recently, TAPR completed all outstanding orders of Trimble
ThunderBolt GPS receiver + AULT power supply kits. Those
of you who ordered should have received yours by now. Since
the stock of both TBolts and power supplies was limited, some
of you missed the opportunity to place an order or to order
a second unit. Now is your chance.

The good news is that the telecom salvage firm found more
TBolts for us and today TAPR is again accepting orders. In
case you're wondering, these are not coming from China.

The bad news is we can't find a replacement vendor for those
nice AULT power supplies. So we decided to offer this batch
of TBolt's without a power supply (but you still get antenna
and DC connectors, as before).

There's enough information out there on compatible +5 +/-12 V
power supplies that this shouldn't be a big problem (see FAQ).
And it will also reduce costs -- those power supplies had to
ship from Asia to All Electronics to me to TAPR to you.

Please email specific questions directly to me rather than
bother the whole time-nuts group.
