-The RFM12B transceiver has some places which are not isolated. As soon as you use a PCB which is soldered by yourself and has no isolation as well, there has to be an isolation between the SHC device'​s PCB and the RFM12 module.+The RFM12B transceiver has some places which are not isolated. As soon as you use a PCB which is soldered by yourself and has no isolation as well, there has to be an isolation between the SHC device'​s PCB and the RFM12 module. Even when you have a professionally created isolated PCB, an isolation space of about 0.5mm allows you to remove the solder with a desoldering braid in the case it's necessary to remove a defective RFM12 transceiver.
  
-You can use a piece of paper or plastic for isolation, or glue the RFM12B module with a **little bit** of hot glue to the PCB. This will also result in a little isolation space.+You can use a piece of paperplastic ​or double-faced foamed adhesive tape for isolation, or glue the RFM12B module with a **little bit** of hot glue to the PCB. This will also result in a little isolation space. ​
  
-Please note that the paperboard isolation may not be optimal if the device is used in moist conditions. I have no long term experience using the paperboard as isolation.+Please note that the paperboard isolation may not be optimal if the device is used in moist conditions.
