  • Yes - I have successfully used the code on GitHub from sparkfun. I also have the code you posted on Dangerous Prototypes, adding the two methods you posted to get SAME message and clear SAME message. This is what I am currently using. With your source, I do get 0x80 after power up. I did have to change the address define (#define ADDRESS_IC B0010001) to what I was using for the sparkfun source (#define ADDRESS_IC B1100011). I set up a menu in the loop() function where I can call chkStatus() - this is where it returns Status Bit: FF, 11111111.

    Hardware-wise, I do not have anything connected to GP01, GP02, or SEN on the Sparkfun breakout board.

    I have things in place for the weekly test today - should know more after 11:00 AM.

    Update: During the weekly test today, I got a message length of 152, but no message was displayed.

  • Could you post an example sketch using the SAME read and SAME clear functions on your site? All I'm getting for the status byte is 0xFF - I thought a logic HI indicated data was present. I have this break out board connected to the Arduino Uno R3.

  • I'm also working on a project that needs an integrated weather band receiver. A breakout board with this WX band chip would really help things along!

No public wish lists :(
