This is a how-to I build a typical node, this will show you my methodology. You will need to gather your goodies. In this case, I will need the following: ( this is a complication of the Info, Manufac, Category tables the only thing not included is the Quantity column.)   Product Name Quan My Part Number Manufacture Part Number Enclosure, Polycarb 1 104-00001-00 Nam Ngai Hong 605RS Arduino Mega 1 35-00002-00 Arduino Mega 256 R3 "    "  Mount 1 95-00001-00 Arvan Meg ...
I have talked about this radio back in the day. Please See NexGen Simulator Blog Index iii. You will see 13 prior entries. So why 14? This post is using my current schematic for the wiring which will do the decoding very straightforward.  The C-3426A schematics and pinouts are included in  TM 11-5826-215-35, "Field and Depot Maintenance Manual Receiving Set Radio AN/ARN-30D", (page 15).
