Will create the list for recheck once back from holidays.
I have already checked the ones provided in bom.pdf attached somewhere in thread, but that supplier only ships to Germany & Austria which is no go for the ones outside those countries.

Have another question regardring the decoder:
Does it read and reports noise level from loop, as it would be super useful if one could see in what range the noise is when everything is connected and ready for use.

As you know, mylaps loop came with certain amount of coax cable before loopbox. We made own loop box with a balun and if the coax cable connecting to decoder was to short we had way much higher noise compared to orig. loop. But once we used cable same lenght as original, we also got same low noise levell. On mylaps rc4 decoder.

[QUOTE=condac;15231499]EDIT: i didnt remember that i already posted this...
Here are the schematics for the working loop box i made: /QUOTE]


Hi Condac, please, do you can explain better your soluction? For example, the P1 conector ir direct to amplifier? Or goes to Psoc amplifier?
If your system is running with loop and resistor, is better to my track...
Other question, what kind of wire do you use? Rigid? what diameter?
P.S. sorry with my english.

Thank you

Ederson

As I'm not good at point to point soldering on raster plate, I've decided to make the board for the decoder and the the loop amp.
Once I have both boards ready I will try to solder them together with help of my friend, to see how the thing works.
Very excited already.
