Hey Chaos,

I've used around ten of those TX modules, all of them working great. Used in mixture of wooden and plastic boxes, aerials mounted to the module or remotely. Some of the TX modules were bought second hand here on Avcom.
You will have a great deal of joy with that radio.

I-P

Edit: HK currently has them on special and it's the multiprotocol version!

Have no clue, maybe keep them as backups.
