Basic requirements were established. DRA818 is a new one-of-a-kind VHF Ham transceiver on a chip. It needed to be combined with a capable applications processor and local communications capability. The Arduino MKR1000 was chosen as it provided a turn-key solution. Turn-around time for the initial prototype was minimized by using an all-module approach.
