Talking with Dell and Aaron, we were thinking how cool it would be to have a room covered with white boards. There is paint that you can put on walls that makes them into a big white board. Then we though what if a person made the walls into rear projection screens that had overlays. What do you think? How would you make it?
Project Bucket List
As I have discussed with my friends, one of my goals is to improve my documentation. In doing so, I thought it would be wise to create a Projects Bucket List, this way I can hopefully stay on track. Currently there are 5 projects on this list that have been started. I have a tendency to get half way through one project then start another.
Radio – Audio Interface Unit
Using your computer’s sound card to do digital modes over ham radio, you will need an Audio Interface Unit. Here you will see my design goals for my new interface unit. I will include a schematic and other documentation as the project progresses.
Air Variable Capacitors
Building my first Air Variable Capacitor, my goals and what steps I am taking.
Used Components Can See New Life
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Before throwing away some old parts, books, or magazines ask around to see if any one else would want it.
Screwdriver Antenna Controller
Dell-Ray and I are currently building an Arduino-powered screwdriver antenna controller. Check out our current status on Facebook!
Every ham radio operator that builds equipment needs a work bench. Here I am throwing some ideas together. I will post more when I start building the bench.
So far I have built a CNC router in order to make PCBs, but I then wanted the boards to be painted. It would be nice to make PCBs at home that look like they were done by the pros, so it does not just end with the CNC router.
Computer PS to a Bench-top PS
Buying a Raspberry Pi, I needed a USB power supply. So, I am converting a old computer switching power supply to a bench top power supply that I can use to power my small projects.
Remote Radio Station
Living in Europe I have had small yards or gardens. This has made me thing more about Remote Radio Stations. Also, it might be best to have your receiver in a location where there is less noise on the bands for local switching power supplies.
