by Mark J. Hughes, Kaushlesh C, Jesse Robinson

Hello Amazing Supporters,

We’re absolutely thrilled to bring you an exhilarating update from Boondock Technologies. Your incredible support has not only helped us smash our initial goals, but now it’s time to reach for the stars with our ambitious stretch goal – "The Drive for Five!"

🚀 The Drive for Five!

Our goal is nothing short of spectacular: Five Hundred Percent in Sales ($30k) and Five Hundred Subscribers.

Thanks to your unwavering support, we’ve soared past our initial targets – we aimed for $6,000 in sales and have hit a staggering $19,943! Our subscriber goal was 250, and now we’re proudly at 400. But we’re not stopping there. We want to expand our horizons and continue this incredible growth. And we need your help to make it happen!

Spread the Word!

We’re calling on our vibrant community to share Boondock Echo far and wide. Tell your friends, family, and even your friend’s families about our innovative product. Share our captivating 60-second video on Facebook, Reddit, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms.

🛠 Innovations and Enhancements

Circuitboard Revolution: We’re taking a giant leap forward by redesigning the circuitboard to include a TRRS jack, replacing the traditional audio cable. This change is all about maximizing functionality and sleek design.

Take a closer look — we’ve started 3D printing PCBs for size and scale! It’s a "paper doll" that ensures everything in the final design will fit perfectly!

Attenuation Circuit Overhaul: Jesse is fine-tuning the attenuation circuit for compatibility with an even wider range of radios, making Boondock Echo more versatile and user-friendly. And guess what? With an attenuation bypass switch, we’re line-out compatible! Scanner people, this one is for you!

Case Redesign: With circuitboard improvements come case modifications. KC is meticulously ensuring that everything fits perfectly, including 3D printing prototypes for precision. And in keeping with the FOSS mantra, KC is designing everything in TinkerCad.

🙏 A Heartfelt Thank You

Your enthusiasm and support are the driving forces behind our innovation. Stay tuned for more thrilling updates as we continue to break new ground in amateur radio technology.

With Gratitude,

Jesse, KC, Mark
