Fifi SDR control app for MacOS
One of the intriguing things about the Fifi SDR is that as well as I/Q output via an in-built USB sound device it also has the ability to demodulate built right in and that audio output appears as an additional sound device. The Fifi SDR can be controlled u...

Graphing temperature on DataDog from an esp8266
One of my colleagues, Jules, is totally hot. I think his desk is under an air conditioning vent or perhaps he just works too hard. Anyhow, it gave me an idea. Recently we've been using the cloud logging service DataDog to send data to and have it graph and ...

Minimal esp8266 board runner
I've been playing with the interesting esp8266 which can be programmed with the Arduino IDE and has built in Wifi capability. Today I made a little carrier board for just running the projects. My first time using Fritzing which is an amazing piece of softwa...

ABC iview now on Apple TV 4
This might surprise my radio friends, but by day I'm a software developer. We've just finished a new version of ABC iview (only available in Australia) and I wrote some notes on the project here . It's a real treat to work on software that gets used by larg...

Beautiful day at the Wyong field day 2016
This year was a perfect day for the annual Wyong field day. Rowetel had a table this year showing FreeDV and the SM1000 s were selling like hot cakes. Something I hadn't come across before was the excellent (for communications) JRC ST-3 headphones . The Hom...

Compiling VfoSource from QST's excellent article on DDS for Forty-9er
QST March 2016 has a terrific article on using a DDS controlled by an Arduino to be the VFO for a cheap CW transceiver known as the Forty-9er. Download it here: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/QST%20Binaries/Mar2016/Purdum-Zia-Kidder.zip But the instructions...

Fifi SDR - like a Softrock but with a built-in sound card
The nicest way to tune around is with a software defined radio. Being able to see a wide area of a band and simply click on the active signals is superior to spinning a dial up and down. This weekend a Fifi SDR arrived from Germany. They cost around 140 Eur...

PlatformIO, the Arduino IDE for programmers
The Arduino IDE is a great way to get started with embedded programming. It combines an editor, library manager, board manager, examples, programming tool and serial monitor all in one easy to install application. As a programmer I'm used to my editor under...

WSPR via WSJTX on Raspberry Pi 3
My thanks to Ross, VK1UN, for the following instructions which allow the easy installation of WSJTX on a Raspberry Pi 3 (and earlier is no doubt fine too) running Rasparian. sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 862549F9
sudo nano /e...

Purchased toaster oven - not reviewed by Siracusa
We have a toaster and we have an oven, but we don't have a "toaster oven". Recently Phillipa has been producing a huge crop of home grown tomatoes and they beg to be sliced and have cheese melted over them, but the oven is so big it seems like a waste to gr...

esp8266 Arduino programming
The esp8266 is a tiny board that costs from about $5 and has a processor with Wifi capabilities. Following these instructions I've built a rat's next of a programmer: My USB serial interface has a jumper for 5 or 3V so I set it to 3V and there was no need t...

CubicSDR with SDRPlay on Linux
I love tuning HF with this configuration. CubicSDR is a very good piece of software and it's open source.  With an SDRPlay device you can see the whole band at once and click to listen in. Here's a little video. I wish the SDRPlay USB driver wasn't closed s...
