In this Blog Post, I will carry on with phase I of testing. This consists of four (4) components. The radio head itself, which has not been modified. The Custom Cable consisting of 2 DB-25m connected to 3 ARINC connectors. The RSS C-3436A interface. And lastly, a python script running on my Linux box to talk to the radio head via a USB cable just for testing. The testing will have several major objectives: The out of frequency indexes for MHz and KHz are working. Make sure that I can retrieve ...
Well here I am again after taking a new (very old) look at the code base (2016) which had been lost, but nothing is really never lost on the Internet. I found my old code at Hackster.io and took a look at it. What I had done was to weigh each of the bits, in binary and then deliver an integer representation of the bits: int temp = (  frac[0] + ( frac[1]*2) + ( frac[2]) + ( frac[3]*8) + ( frac[4]*16)); My code base is not finished but at the very least now I have no errors in the IDE. Now t ...
I have been fighting with the Arduino for the last  few years. this time I wanted to simplify my code base by using a struct in my header file: // typdef struct frequency {   int bits[20][5] = {{1,1,0,0,1},{1,1,0,0,0},{1,1,1,0,0},{1,0,0,0,1},{1,1,1,1,0},                   {0,0,0,1,0},{0,1,1,1,1},{0,0,1,0,0},{1,0,1,1,1},{0,1,0,0,0},            & ...
Warner Brothers© So, before I waste some more of my time, I have decided to test the frequency selector pin-outs on P1. So what I decided was to put 5 LEDs on some perf-board with their resistors. Then connect them to the P1 (H-L and then (N-R) with wires between them run P1 (S) to ground, the LEDs to +5vdc, turn the dial on the radio, and see what happens in other words, I don't know if I can trust myself.  The results will be in the table below. Well, I wasted yesterday trying to re ...
