Brilliant. Well done Jean-Pierre
Yes...I got myself confused. The Serit NIM is needed only to receive DVB-S2 16APSK and 32APSK digital modulations. So earlier MiniTiouner units without Serit NIMs can not receive DVB-S2 16APSK and 32APSK digital modulations....but can receive DVB-S2 QPSK and 8PSK modulation.F6DZP wrote
or does not own a MiniTiouner unit with DVB-S2 capability", I think that you don't understand completely how works a MiniTiouner, since 2015 all MiniTiouners built (home brewed or BATC kit ) have DVB-S2 capability.
On the thread of the cost of postage for shipping MiniTiouner-Express hardware from USA:
Yes, I have heard many hams with belief that this shipping cost is excessive to Europe. I can assure you that US$33 is the price charged by US Postal Service for shipping a small box to most of the world.G0MJW wrote
I must admit the US$33 shipping does sound excessive but I am sure this just reflects what our US friends are charged by the likes of US Mail and UPS…

There may be a little extra delay from UK as first few sold out. Next few are on their way via customs ready to be reshipped.
When this batch sells out, it may take some time for future batches.

Shipments of MiniTiouner-Express are currently on hold due to issues with v0.8 of MiniTioune.
All MiniTiouner-Express units shipped from USA after April 19 and all units shipped from UK (started around April 27 or so) are updated with the EEPROM change needed for compatibility with v0.8s of the MiniTioune software.
