Re: Issues and questions.

I just wonder how the Raspberry Pi gets away with it.

Re: Issues and questions.

No time for all of that at the moment, so if the OSSC would not collect dust inside and act as a jamming transmitter, I'd be tempted. It's interesting you mention that you think that it'll act as an RF "jammer". I've not seen any interference with any systems or analog & digital radio...

Re: Issues and questions.

Re: Seen on eBay: Is this a Gold card?

I bid £200... and have just been outbid by someone who's bought over 900 items. Though the person who's bought 4500 has been left behind... :-)
