SupportTAPR kits can be complex depending on the kitting experience of each builder. We don't think you will have trouble with the kit, but it does require some knowledge and experience to successfully go from a kit to a finished, usable unit, depending on the mode of operations.
The T-238 series and the X1W series of kits are discussed on the Weather Special Interest Group (WXSIG). You can join WXSIG via the web at:
