HamShield Library!

A project log for HamShield: VHF/UHF transceiver for Arduino

HamShield lets your Arduino talk to far away people and things using amateur radio bands (Coverage: 136-170MHz, 200-260MHz, 400-520MHz)

As promised, here is the GitHub link to our growing open source library! Special thanks to Stephen Olesen / VE6SLP who made a lot of this possible! If anyone is looking for an amazing developer, I can put you in touch with him. This guy had half of this working before I could even get a prototype shipped to him.

Remember, it is still in development, but I am too excited so I *must* show you!

Things are still going full steam ahead with development, but this should give you a great idea of where things are headed. As we expand the library, expect to see more and more examples that leverage the new capabilities.

Even better, we hope you contribute to our library and growing example base! We are working on a breadboard schematic so some of you can rig up what we have on the HamShield and develop even before your HamShield arrives!

Here are some highlights of our library's capabilities:

Some library roadmap and a few neat ideas we are kicking around:

We already have some great examples in our library, including our serial port controlled radio, APRS messenger, and KISS TNC packet radio sketch.

Also, this week I am expanding on my solar powered experiment I did last Sunday. I hope to have another video soon!
