Screaming Circuits: National Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Month

PROTOTYPE AND SMALL VOLUME
PCB ASSEMBLY MADE EASY

National Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Month

Sputnik 1Coming soon, on the heals of National High Voltage AC month, Screaming Circuits has declared October 2014 to be National National Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Month in honor of the October 4, 1957 launch of Sputnik.

This month, rather than T-shirts, we're offering a custom coffee mug sporting the schematic diagram of Sputnik 1's transmitter. The first 100 customers who place an order in September, 2014, will have the opportunity to get one of these mugs for free.

After your order is confirmed, we'll send you instructions explaining how you can get yours and what the deadlines are.

If you don't have anything to order, you can still get your mug by buying one (through ebay) for a measly $10.00. The whole price, less ebay/PayPal fees will be donated to FREE GEEKs. From the FREE GEEK website: "a Portland-based
NLEO month mockup501(c)(3) nonprofit offering free computers, technology and education powered by reuse & recycling in association with Oregon E-Cycles."

We think that's pretty cool, so the money from these mug sales will go to them.

Also, the first person to build a working copy of the transmitter will get another mug free. It could be hard, though. You might have to fabricate the tubes yourself (People do that, you know). If you can get it working and into ordit, you'll get one more for free.
