I have an Airwave AWM682RX 5.8GHz video received and matching AWM683TX transmitter module. Oddly, one has pins spaced at 0.1", the other at 2mm.

So, what's the best way to make a part with 2mm spaced pins fit on 0.1" matrix board?

The best way would be the adapter.

A quick way would be to take a dremel tool to the Vector board and route a slot. Epoxy the 2mm sockets to the board and then run jumper wires to Vector K24A pins.

If you do not have many pins you could take a wire-wrap header with 0.1" centers and bend the leads on one end to 2mm centers. Solder the socket to bent leads.

If you want to avoid soldering and just want to connect some devices up quick to breadboard, try this: 2.54mm to 2mm jumper wire

I make my own PCBs at home, so I'd just make a little adapter.
