  • Any chance certain cellphones might interfere with RF-ID readers? I have a continual serial read on an RF-ID reader hooked up to arduino … I’ve had two cases where I was testing read values, and everything was working fine … then someone stopped by in the vicinity, the the reading stopped (paused?) … reading seemed to continue after they left the vicinity. Coincidence? or known problem? With mobile devices having all kinds of sensors, and the radios inside, I didn’t want to rule out of the possibility. The strange thing is that I touched nothing … the reader was working fine, then the person(s) showed up … it stopped, they left, and it continued reading … I work in my cube with a WP7 device on T-mobile, and I haven’t had an issue … Maybe these folks have a global Blackberry that emits a bunch of bad things? Not sure where 125kHz and cellphones fit in the spectrum … guess I’ll look that up to see if things make sense.

No public wish lists :(
