A RadioShack salesperson gave my some annoying news.
I've been using their Bright Blue LED
's p/n 276-311 and their Red LED
To make moonlight modules, 2 blue leds (5V forward, 20 ma, 1 000 mcd ) and 1 red (2v forward, 20ma, 6.3 mcd) connivently make up 12v with no waste.
Local RadioShack did not get new stock after I bought both
of their blue leds, so I went to the next town and bought both
of their blue leds and asked for more.
The salesperson said their ordering system showed 0 instock and no plans to get any more supply.
I'll be in going to another town this week and will see what they have.
seems to happen every time I find something that works or is useful
