ULRS Mini Hardware with Radiohead Library

I’ve been spending some time getting my own software on the arduino to send and receive data over the air but mixing together register settings from all the LRS code bases together with information from the data sheet and the excel settings generator didn’t work.

So I just spend 1.5h to “port” the RadioHead library to the ULRS mini hardware… and it just works. The result is just an ugly patch, but I don’t care – I can send and receive data over the air:

Sending to rf22_server
got reply: And hello back to you DEBUG
Sending to rf22_server
got reply: And hello back to you DEBUG
Sending to rf22_server
got reply: And hello back to you DEBUG

Anybody interested can find the Arduino sketch here.The whole motivation is to have some hardware setup where I can test two different antennas because I have to choose which one I glue into the tail of my plane.

Ultimate LRS board is running – sort of

Hi,

I’ve just tested my Ultimate LRS Mini board with a quick arduino sketch, it runs nicely:

Hello world
data[0]=8
data[1]=6
temp=188
temp=188
temp=188
temp=189
temp=191
temp=191
temp=192
temp=192
temp=192
temp=191
temp=191
temp=190
temp=190
temp=190
temp=189

ok, nothing much to see, but the arduino can talk to the RFM23BP and when I put my finger onto the TRX-chip the temperature rises. So the critical stuff of my PCB should work.
