ArduTrx

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.

Introduction

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

HF module

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.

Arduino

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.
