[aprssig] [AD] New Display Setups

I recently came across some really nice 2x16 Hantronix miniature  
(2.1" by 0.8") backlit displays. I wanted badly to use them for some  
projects. The were clear crisp and readable at distances at which  
many larger displays weren't. So, what was the problem, you may ask.  
The display used a 16 conductor 1mm pitch Flat Flex ribbon cable,  
which is increasingly common but for which I had no clean electrical/ 
mechanical interface.

Anyway, to make a long story short my partner and I designed an  
adapter board with a 1x16 .100" spaced set of holes for wires or pin  
headers and a FFC/FFP connector to the Flat Flex. I have a 70 or so  
of  these adapter boards (K107RA) available as well as 20+ of  these  
Hantronix displays bundled with the K107 Serial LCD Controller and  
the K107RA adapters.

I recently found some more reasonable price shipping containers for  
the  display/controller bundles and I was able to drop the shipping  
charges on all those bundles by $2-4.
