The Soft66RTL looks like it has some great improvements coming. The updates (version 3) includes three significant improvements.
- 4 band filter – This is the single biggest improvement. This will undoubtedly give much better performance.
- Thermal pad – one of our gripes was the heat of the previous version, I suspect this will also improve performance by helping stabilize temperature.
- Better switch – It appears that the new power switch and band filter switch is all-in-one. The switch now extends out of the device making it much easier to use (previously the switch was flush with the plastic, making it hard to turn the upconverter on and off).

ePrepper is going offline this month and will likely be offline before the end of January 2017, unless I can find someone to either take over the site or migrate its content to. Properly maintaining the site has been taking up too much time and cutting into my family. I would like to see the content of ePrepper get absorbed into a larger site.
