This practical guide shows amateur radio enthusiasts how to use low-cost Arduino boards to expand their capabilities and add hundreds of dollars' worth of value to their equipment! Arduino Projects for Amateur Radio introduce hobbyists with no Arduino or programming experience to the exciting possibilities that microcontrollers offer to the amateur radio operator. It starts with a simple micro-controller LCD display and moves up to projects that can add hundreds of dollars’ worth of value and functionality to existing equipment.

  • The book features projects that can take an inexpensive, "rock-bound" CW transceiver that costs $75 and make it perform like rigs that cost more than $400 by expanding the range.
  • An invaluable resource for the two to three million people worldwide involved in amateur (ham) radio
  • Step-by-step instructions for building and programming 17 projects that will enhance the functionality and value of ham radio setups
  • Shows how to use Arduino to create Morse code by typing on a standard keyboard and translate incoming Morse code on an LCD display
  • Code for each project available for download
