The reason for the re-introduction of this radio is the new library created by mr.Ricardo Lima Caratti for SI4735, which contains an updated sketch specifically created for this small receiver. If you are using a SI4735-D60 or SI4732-A10 based circuit, you can also use this sketch to add the SSB functionality to the original project.
If you are using the original SI4730-D60 based circuit, the SSB will not work. However, the STEP, FM/RDS, MODE, AGC, Attenuation, bandwitdth, Soft Mute, Audio Volume and Shortwave will work fine. This sketch is very similar to the previous sketch (MIRKO_V1.ino). The new features of the MIRKO_V2.ino is shown below.
-New menu setup;
The receiver current status is stored into Arduino EEPROM;
FM frequency step;
FM Bandwidth control.
Detailed instructions on how to make this little radio can be found in one of my previous videos:
