Sorry if its been asked but is there another vendor I can order 10 of those from delivered to the USA? I'm looking on ebay and amazon but didn't know if anyone had a link to a known good version that would work.

diggie wrote:* State on DIY page that cores only require stability at 130MHz, but that as a guide 150MHz should generally be achievable with the recommended parts, while errors at 160+MHz does not indicate a problem. I know this information can be determined by reading around, but to have all in one place can give confidence/guidance quickly to first-time builders like me.

JimDrew wrote:One thing that I have seen with the Winbond chips is that they are very sensitive to capacitance created by solder flux residue between pins - much more sensitive than the Alliance brand. Use a LOT of solder flux remover and a fine bristled toothbrush (or similar brush) to remove any debris between pins.
