Probably slightly more likely to connect to something. The main problem is probably how close the second block from the B comes to the eater on the lower right.

The biggest problem I ran into was that the main workhorse conduit for extracting B-heptominoes from the middle of reaction envelopes -- BBx187H -- doesn't fit here, because there's an eater in the way of the block-killing glider.

That's not to say you can't make this into a Herschel conduit, but I can't see any way to fit one inside gmc_nxtman's very reasonable 300-tick or 100x100 bounding-box limits.

That took three Snarks. I think it could be done with a better recovery time using two Snarks, a syringe, and an H-to-boat converter... but somehow that doesn't really seem like it will be an improvement.

Not sure if this H-to-Pi has been posted before.
It doesn't connect to anything, but it looks like something that all those unconnectible Pi-to-Xs we've seen, should be tested against:

The loaf is actually just there to clean up an extra bit of junk, so maybe if it can be cleaned up another way, it can be completed? If it can't, well, that's a waste of two transparent loaves...

Unfortunately that would probably increase the recovery time of the circuit far beyond the G2-producing conduit's already rather high recovery time. And I doubt that the other G2-in-passing conduit will improve things very much.

There's at least one other connection that can rescue the rare forward G output and produce a clean period-doubling conduit. And one more dependent conduit on the end of that allows a perfectly good composite conduit to be completed:

(Unfortunately, I needed to suppress the G output for this connection)

There's at least one other connection that can rescue the rare forward G output and produce a clean period-doubling conduit. And one more dependent conduit on the end of that allows a perfectly good composite conduit to be completed:

It fits inside a 100x100 bounding box, but I'm afraid it's not even close to 300-tick recovery time...! As a period doubler, it can easily accept input at below p150, though (and then you don't need the cleanup glider from the final dependent conduit.)

I'll add it to the period multipliers collection -- those two eastward output gliders are nice.

Very interesting! So that's another Spartan diagonal component that can be made arbitrarily long, like simsim314's BRx46B and swimmer tracks and so on.

The main limitation with Guam's original BRx161B was that it was really hard to get a signal into it. Because of the awkward uncatchable early output glider, I only remember finding two options -- a "preset" using a (2,1) block pull to pull a block back into catalyzing position before the circuit is activated (see BRx46B pattern below left), or an old Herschel receiver, so you needed a tandem glider to get the signal started.

There was a really awkward spark that just barely reached back and knocked out a catalyst in all of the B-heptomino sources that were known at the time. Either that or the output glider caused trouble -- or both, as in the HL141B, below center.

However, I now see that the Spartan HR203B sneaks a B-heptomino in with no problem, just barely letting the problematic glider out (above right). Did I know that at one point, or did someone else mention it? Are there any other new B outputs that can be connected to a BRx161B successfully?

Another possibly salvagable H->G2:

`x = 28, y = 23, rule = LifeHistory12.2A\$12.2A3\$2A\$.A\$.A.A\$2.2A5\$24.2A\$24.A.A\$2.C23.A\$2.C.C21.2A\$2.3C\$4.C4\$19.2A\$19.2A!`

This one just needs a catalyst to replace the block. (Standard eaters and BTS don't work)
