Hi Brett,

Please excuse the tardiness of this reply.

Congratulations on your progress and good looking data.

I can see from the photo on the web page roughly what the instrument is 
and how it's constructed. Other than the links already mentioned in this 
thread, have you published a description of the design and/or schematics 
of the electronics?

Sorry if this has been covered here before. I've been away from 
monitoring the PSN list for some time, and a brief review of the 
archives didn't turn up a description.

Curious minds want to know...
