Microcontroller technology has exploded in popularity among ham radio operators. The new generation of single-board microcontrollers is easier than ever to use, bringing together hardware and software for project-building radio amateurs can easily dive into. With inexpensive microcontroller platforms, such as the popular open-source Arduino board, readily available parts, components and accessory boards, the possibilities are limitless.
Ham Radio for Arduino and PICAXE introduces you to the fun and rewards of experimenting with microcontrollers. Klotz and many other contributors have designed projects that will enhance your ham radio station and operating capabilities. Or, take it to the next step, using these projects as a launch pad for creating your own projects. Readers will find a wide range of unusual and differing projects including, beacon transmitters, keyers, antenna position control, RTTY and digital mode decoders, waterfall displays, and much more. Ham Radio for Arduino and PICAXE comprises mostly Arduino projects and readers should note that many of the projects require the purchase of additional Arduino shields and other boards to complete them.
