Here is my latest project, a rotator controller using the Arduino Uno and Mega 2560 micro-controllers.
Plan is to run Master/Slave between the units using ethernet and drive a homebrew modified Pitch-Prop motor and planetary gearbox, this will then turn my Hy-Gain TH7DX beam.
Using the code developed by Anthony, K3NG.
Lots of nice daughter-boards to mate together.
Just got to find a good (not expensive) rotary encoder from the motor, which turns at ~10,000rpm.
So far the make-up on the breadboard is working well, now to move it onto the final build stage in the case.

The Planetary Society just has no luck with their Solar Sail projects .... 
The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national association for amateur radio, connecting hams around the U.S. with news, information and resources.

Flag of Planet Earth,
a proposal by Oskar Pernefeldt (www.oskarpernefeldt.com)

« Centered in the flag, seven rings form a flower – a symbol of the life on Earth. The rings are linked to each other, which represents how everything on our planet, directly or indirectly, are linked. The blue field represents water which is essential for life – also as the oceans cover most of our planet's surface. The flower's outer rings form a circle which could be seen as a symbol of Earth as a planet and the blue surface could represent the universe. »

Oskar Pernefeldt is from Sweden, Sweden from which Måns Zelmerlöw just won the eurovision (www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoO1V_eOEPA).

Yea, they're catering to morons ... and that's really not the term I wanted to use ... but I don't like speaking in public using those words.

American corporate labs are the stuff of legend. Researchers dream of the halcyon days of Bell Labs and its eight Nobel Prize winners, who brought us the transistor and Unix. ..... Those days are long gone. ..... investment in innovation has been balkanized, split between government financed basic research, squeezed by skimpy budgets, and a corporate R&D effort constrained by its focus on the very short term.

It's a "commodity trading" mentality .... I became very aware of it when I worked ... well at a commodities firm. Upper management was unwilling to invest in anything unless it had an immediate return on investment ... if it didn't give them a trading edge immediately or save costs immediately they weren't interested. It stems from I buy a bushel of wheat from farmer Joe for $5 .... I walk it down the street and sell it to the mill for $6 ... I make $1 in 10 minutes.

Excellent food and environment. This is not your typical chain Mexican ... They serve grown up food ... No burritos here! We lucked out getting seated on a Saturday night ... They recommend reservations.
