#186995 - Definitely room for improvements
Responding to: Erik Malund's previous message

probabl;y, but why not make it safe and do both.

Yes, it really do help a lot to have solenoids with internal diodes or have the diodes at end of cable.

But the PCB traces shouldn't just be dimensioned for the static current - they should be dimensioned (together with caps) to handle significant pulses without everything jumping. No reason to play the device on an MF radio.
