From The Desk Of: Tom Medlin, W5KUB http://w5kub.com
This event will be webcast from W5KUB’s personal ham shack on Thursday, October 30th at 8:00 PM CT (0100 UTC). Arduino devices are powerful and inexpensive microcontrollers, and they are an easy way for ham radio operators, students, and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Glen will discuss Arduino and its many applications. Glen will show and demonstrate projects from his book. He may even bring some surprise projects not in the book.
Glen’s projects include:
|Random Code Practice Generator||Talking GPS/UTC Time/Grid Square Indicator|
|CW Beacon and Foxhunt Keyer||Iambic Keyer|
|Fan Speed Controller||Waveform Generator|
|Digital Compass||PS/2 CW Keyboard|
|Weather Station||Field Day Satellite Tracker|
|RF Probe with LED Bar Graph||Azimuth/Elevation Rotator Controller|
|Solar Battery Charger Monitor||CW Decoder|
|On-Air Indicator||Lightning Detector|
|Talking SWR Meter||CDE/Hy-Gain Rotator Controllers|
