Open Source Hamradio Transceiver for Arduino
The ArduTrx Shield with an Arduino and a display board mounted in a self made wooden case. Completed with a 2S lipo battery, an antenna and a Kenwood-compatible hand mic ready for its first QSO.
ArduTrx is an Arduino shield with a HF module and surrounding circuitry. The shield plugs directly into the pin header of the Arduino Uno or compatible board and forms a stack with it. Other shields can be plugged on top or in between. To get a useful HMI it is suggested to plug a SainSmart 1602 LCD Keypad Shield (https://www.sainsmart.com/products/lcd-keypad-shield-for-arduino-duemilanove-uno-mega2560-mega1280) on top.
Compatibility with the following HF modules has been tested. There may be more compatible modules but these have not been tested yet and so they are not on this list.
Compatibility with the following Arduino boards has been tested. There may be more compatible boards but these have not been tested yet and so they are not on this list.
- Arduino/Genuino Uno
- Arduino/Genuino Mega 2560
- Arduino Leonardo
You can find the software on github: https://github.com/generationmake/ArduTrx
The software is released under GPL v2
There exists two versions of the hardware which are both software compatible:
The hardware is released under CERN OHL v1.2
- ArduTrxShield CNC - this version can easily manufactured by etching or cnc milling but only supports 5V arduinos
- ArduTrxShield - this version is for professional manufacturing because it uses smaller components but it supports both 3,3V and 5V arduinos
