Harry Stephens (KI6PSZ) provided this testimonial:

The SCC3 kit arrived yesterday and I spent several hours last night and this
morning assembling it.  I haven't done much soldering for 20+ years, but I
put the kit together per the instructions, hooked it up to a 45W PV panel
and a dead car battery (just for testing), and it just plain worked!  The
whole thing took me about 10 hours, and it still isn't in an enclosure, but
I was going extra slowly and being extra careful.  Great kit a great price!

Thanks, reviewed the SCC3 in 2005, the build order sequence was changed as a result of this review.

Honorable mention should go to Peter Hudson for using several SCC3 kits in his amazing solar and pedal powered Homouroboros sculpture. There is a YouTube video that shows this amazing contraption in use.
