  • I designed a charger for these if anyone is interested. You can check it out and download the files at my site. I'm not set up for commerce, but can sell you one if you email me. Have 90 bare boards if you want to solder them yourself.

  • For an idea of what you can do with a current transformer, check out http://code.google.com/p/open-energy-meter/. It's an open-source energy meter my buddy and I made.

  • Why didn't the FT232 work on the old board? Isn't it the same circuit SparkFun always uses? I'd rather pay the extra money to have a working TTL USB interface.

  • Same problem. I just got this in the mail and broke the connector first try. Even with needle nose, I can't get the remnants of the connector out of there.

  • Jordii,
    What they don't tell you is that the board is the same with all the modules. If you don't like the antenna mount, you can change it. For instance, if you have the model with the RPSMA, but if decide you want to use a small onboard antenna, you can just insert a wire antenna into the hole on the board. You might need to desolder the old RPSMA connector.
    I'm using a fairly large articulated rubber-ducky antenna. But there are many choices. If you have a ground-station that doesn't move much, you can build a small patch antenna or yagi antenna to increase your range:

  • Does anyone have an eagle footprint for this?

  • Does anybody have an eagle footprint for this? From the picture it looks like you could put some right angle headers on it, and use some stand-offs to keep it hovering above the PCB? (I'm Ron Burgandy?)

No public wish lists :(
