UK week 2, part2



After some serious headbanging and runny nose of soldering iron an my own things started to happen. Email to Easyradio guys and a reply that even designer could understand: "Try dropping the power to the module through a diode that drops say 0.7V to control the ripple." Me poke in a diode and the sky opened: Range increased about 1000%, out of the door, down the stairs and out to the Yorkshire valleys. One down, two to go.

Observe the old-reliable Stamp version in the pic above on the right, and the trimmed-down PIC version on the left. With the magic diode. Thanks again David Schmider from Low Power Radio Soulutions UK.

Found a lot of useful info on your site about soldering - thank you. Haven't finished reading it yet but have bookmarked it so I don't lose it. I've just started a soldering blog myself if you'd like to stop by
