This Ham Radio Repeater Locator is Not For Locating Hams!

When someone talking about “ham”, most people will react that it must be related with the foods! Well, you might be right most of the time, but you got it wrong this time. This Ham Radio Repeater Locator has nothing to do with the “ham”, but it is much important for detecting the locations and communication purposes! Do you know that over the years, the amateur radio “ham” community has successfully built numerous repeaters at many strategic locations all across the United States and worldwide? These repeaters allow the amateurs to communicate over in a longer distance, by using the normally line-of-sight two-meter amateur band, which it mostly from 144 MHz to 148 MHz! It would be an ultimate fun experience to have a 2-meter long transceiver in the car, especially when you’re driving in long distance. The Ham Radio Repeater Locator is consists a “ZiLOG” microcomputer with the accurate locations and frequencies of several thousand repeaters. All the data are being stored safely in its flash memory. This is how the Ham Radio Repeater Locator works: First of all,… Continue reading

Feel The Differences of The Sanguino Today!

You’re a home hobbyist that loves to spend most of the time developing cool and creative electronic stuffs? However, you still wish to create a super Arduino board that has many awesome features on a single board? Well, congratulation as you’ll try to learn to develop the Sanguino board today! Ok, first thing first, the meaning of “Sanguino” is a red and fun microcontroller board, which is based on the ATmega644P. If you’re already bored of the Arduino or wiring board, where the latter one can be costly indeed, then you can test your talent by simply design your very own Sanguino board! Since the Sanguino development project is only requires the Arduino software and it’s all in the open source, thus you won’t have any problem creating your own powerful yet multipurpose Sanguino board! Sanguino board has the following cool features, which made it unique than the Arduino and there are: The Atmega644P core 32 total general purpose I/O pins Eight analog pins Six Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) pins 64K flash memory 4K RAM 2K EEPROM Two hardware serial… Continue reading
