A growing number of financial partners allows us to keep the research and development work flowing, continue our free consulting services, and create the administrative backbone needed to support this growing ministry.

Connecting with Local Churches
We invited local area pastors and their spouses for lunch in February. Here is a quick video about our time together.
Until recently, outsourcing the assembly of small quantities of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) which use surface mount components was costly. But with the purchase of new Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) equipment, multiple Engineering and Development project test boards can be prototyped in-house, including runs of 50 or even 100.
Though not fabricating the PCBs themselves, a vacuum pen allows placement of tiny SMT components onto the boards where they are held in place using a special paste. The board and components are then placed into a special oven and heated until the paste melts and permanently attaches the components to the PCB.
What used to take six hours now takes 45 minutes, and saves approximately $150 per hour. In addition, the flexibility of prototyping in-house PCBs provides a very practical tool.
Both Equipment Power Protection (EPP) and Water Monitoring have already taken advantage of the new equipment, but any project can benefit, such as the SonSet® radio. Over time, this equipment will more than pay for itself not just in time and funds but in helping to make equipment more efficient in reaching souls for God’s kingdom.
the HCJB Global Technology Center
After 28 years of effective worldwide ministry under the names of HCJB Global Technology Center and HCJB World Radio Engineering Center, our team of missions-minded technologists is now SonSet Solutions (find out why), an independent ministry to help spread the gospel through technology. Our workers are mostly engineers and technicians, and over the years we have developed great expertise in listening to our partners tell of their ministry dreams and needs.
