I have an unbuilt  Corsair II Display logic board kit for sale. 
This is the board
and parts sold by Jerry W5YH about 6 months ago. It is a 
replacement for a
non-working display board for the Corsair II. Here is an old post 
what this is:

    Phil Chambley, K4DPK, suggested I remind everyone what the 
Display Logic
Board is.  He was concerned that some people might be confusing 
the logic
board with his products he sells.   So, if you know what it is, 
hit the
delete button now. ;-)  If not, here is the story.

The Corsair II is the greatest analog radio ever made (my humble 
It has one flaw, the display logic board uses an IC that Ten Tec 
no longer
supports (remember, this is a 25 year old radio).  This IC fails
occasionally leaving the person with a perfectly working Corsair 
II without
a display.  What a terrible way to lose a good Corsair II.  Steve 
Hunt, our
English friend, decided to do something about the problem.  Steve 
designed a
replacement board using a pair of 16F84A PICs to do the function 
of the
original display logic board.  He was kind enough to lay out a 
PCB.  He
asked me to do a group buy.  Since I own a Corsair II, I was more 
willing to do so.  Steve's board is basically a drop in 
replacement.  It is
easy to build and easy to install since it is  a drop in 
replacement.  I am
selling the PCBs, programmed PIC chips, parts kits, and I will 
even build it
for you if needed.  I love my Corsair II and I want to keep it 
running for a
long time.  So, if you want to keep your Corsair Ii going for 
another ??
years, you need this board.  It is a cheap insurance policy.  If 
you are
interested, contact me at my email address shown above.

Thanks and 73, Jerry W5JH
