This is the technical blog of Doug jackson – VK1ZDJ.
I am a licensed amateur radio operator in Australia.
I love designing small microcontroller projects using either PIC micros, or AtMega chips.
You will find many of my projects published at instructables.com, under userid drj113
I think this is pretty cool. I’m living in dallas, texas and have just found out about the arduino and all the other posibilities there are out there. Plus I have a sprinkler controller that I can only understand from time to time. This will be my first project. Thanks, KD
I’m living in the ACT. Any chance of buying a copy of this board?
Thanks for the interaction! Mark Hugo
Saw your comment about shoehorning code, done the same, got 6200 lines of code (arduino IDE) in my sprinkling system , has menus etc, you probably already are using the F macro for strings, but i found it invaluable to get it to fit in a mega.
By the way am also part of the S100computer scene, put me down for 10 TIL311’s please… Will advise of address/payment etc, if this is do-able.

I’m working on getting my foundation licence, so can’t log it properly anywhere else…!
I’m currently running an RTL-SDR with it’s original crappy rabit ear antenna set up IN the house (waiting on a ghost wire to poke it through the window!). Running SDR# with CalicoCAT into WSJT-X
You’re actually my FIRST WSPR contact! 🙂
Thanks so much 🙂 It is always great to get a Signal report. I am using a QRP Labs WSPR transmitter, and it really works well.
Keep studying – once you are licenced that will open so many doors 🙂
