Today I finally received new UKA-2 boards. I changed the power input connector from the old RCA jack to the new 2.5mm/5mm barrel connector, commonly found on many “wall wart” type power supplies. It’s also the same connector used on the MK-1, and of course I have listed a matching power cable on the web site.
Not many people liked putting a power supply on an RCA connector — there were just too many things that could go wrong. So, this revision will fix that and make the UKA-2 a little friendlier in the shack. Other than that I rearranged the components a little, but functionally there are no other changes. I’ll have the new kits with me in Dayton, and will have the web site updated later today or tomorrow.
