    Talked to a known builder about the HG2879C. He said they come alive at around 17 volts. At standard mobile voltage he recommends the regular HG2879.

    Still Waiting for my 6pill from Hopper as I ordered on Aug 6 with 2-4week build time, emailed him yesterday and replied today saying should be shipped next week was a delay in shipping overseas for transistors. I am sure Nate will deliver.

    Delays with usps and customs are not uncommon with china shipments. Hg usually ships fedx and even then i saw a delay once.
