Hi Mark

It may not be sick.

Can I suggest if you want a U10 I would be interested in the board and if it
does work then maybe exchange for a U10/pay you some money for it as I have
customers who use that board.

Any chance you could ship me the board and I would pay the postage so I can
see if it works?
