Bill of Material
An SMT capacitor on pin 1 of the Si570 needs to be removed to comply with the NO CONNECT for this pin for the Si570 supplied with the kit. Having this capacitor mounted on the circuit board degrades the performance of the RXTX transceiver, especially the higher frequency builds of this kit.
This capacitor has the following designation: C55 for the RXTX Ensemble transceiver.
