  • Try being young in the electronics industry and being an outspoken conservative.

  • Does anyone have the AVRDUDE CONF file containing the ponyser programmer or instructions on how to add it? Attempting to use the AVRDUDESS GUI. I have the CONF file that contains the ATmega328 device, but doesn’t have ponyser. Thanks!

  • We’re going to give it a try with the DCS-932L and see if we have any luck. Did you check the connectors for poor crimp, causing the voltage drop?

  • We’ve confirmed that this works perfectly with a Dlink DAP-1522 access point, using the power supply that came with the AP at the switch end. Outstanding! $5 and we have just effectively turned a cheap AP into a PoE AP. The only downside is not being able to use the PoE ports in our switch, but this is the next best thing! We now have a Dlink DCS-932L web camera on the way to try this out with. From the pictures, it looks like it has the same 2.1mm coaxial power jack, so it should work perfectly.

  • Too bad this is the model without touchscreen. Any plans to carry the touchscreen version? You would make the Carputer guys happy!

  • As a US based business, I am happy to see the UPS shipping options added. We like to use UPS and FedEx as much as possible since they seem to get it to us quickly and for a decent price. That doesn’t mean we don’t like to use USPS, but it just seems that when something goes missing with the USPS (even when insured), they just do not care. That is what you get when you let the government control anything.

  • The 90’s kicked ass!

  • We are using the Trimble Copernicus module in our HAB payload, the RTrak-HAB, to get past the 60K feet limitation. One of the leading HAB groups in Canada has flown our prototype payload on a few missions and so far they love it. Barry, their head hardware guy has written a very nice article about it:

    We have settled on a final revision and will have these for sale very soon.

  • I am curious to how far back the sales records go. I was purchasing parts and programmers back when it was still the old blue background site. That was maybe circa 2002? 2003?

  • Correction! The photo shown was of someone ELSE’S setup. Sorry about that! But I still hope to see youins fly APRS on one of your future payloads.

No public wish lists :(
