Final Update

This clarifies how to properly use the board transistors. Q1 - Q4

Again no problem with the board, it is simply a matter of paying attention to the Pinout of the transistors that you wish to use. Always google the datasheets. The original calls for BC546 which you can still find on the webs, but if you choose to use the more common and cheaper 2N5088s etc... you simply reverse the transistor as per shown on the boards silkscreen.

That's it.
