Re: [softrock40] Reading band data with Arduino
- The Ensemble doesn't have an ATU port.. but it wouldn't be too much trouble to design a little microcontroller based interface if driving an automatic antenna tuner was the objective. The hardest part would probably be finding the protocol datasheet for the automatic antenna tuner. :) The rest of it could be done with one of the microcontroller's ADC pins. Or, if the microcontroller was in the same part of the galvanic isolation as the I2C/USB microcontroller, you could just use a standard GPIO pin to count pulses. Fun project, but step one would be getting your hands on the protocol datasheet for the automatic antenna tuner. :)

That's very kind of you, and very interesting. I am actually
considering building a Peaberry at some point in the not so far
future. Thanks David.
