MADE IN THE USA This is the assembled kit for the B7971 nixie clock, NOT including tubes. Fully assembled & ready to "plug n play", does not include tubes. The examples with tubes are only to illustrate what the clock looks like when tubes are plugged in, this item includes everything assembled but does not include the tubes. If you would like the unassembled kit, please message me and I will list it. A demo can be viewed here. A quick demo here. Text message demo here. WIFI module included for network connection which enables automatic time & date set and option to enter a text message which will scroll through, please see the video (50 character maximum, including white spaces).
Can alternatively be equipped with a GPS module (buyer's choice) - please note that scrolling text message will not operate with GPS option, only wifi.
Uses all standard size components (not surface mount "throwaways") so it can actually be repaired as opposed to other designs.
The microcontroller is in a socket for easy replacement.
The RGB LEDs make it possible to produce different color lighting under the tubes, user selectable. Just press & hold the led color button.
