Re: 4SQRP HF Test Set

John Lonigro

If an Arduino is part of the system, it won't be anything you'd have to be concerned with.  It's like the microcontrollers in modern radios (or refrigerators, microwaves, washers, dryers,etc).  They are there to provide functionality and no programming or other computer skills are necessary to use them.  In fact, the original HF Test Set has a microprocessor in it.  No programming (by the user) was required.  Hope this puts your mind at ease.

Hello all,
Just want to drop my two cents worth in.  A sweep generator and small screen oscilloscope would be wonderful. If the ardunio control is included, please make it optional so the non-ardunio ham could still use it.

Hello David.
I own a original one that I use.

I have some wishes.

A rotary selector switch to choose the options, so one set of probes.

A case with the display mounted in it.

Possibly a RF signal generator, this may be asking a lot?

Possibly ardunio control instead of a rotary switch, using a encoder and menu,  hmm getting fancy now??

If current 'proud' owners of a HF Test Set were ask, I wonder what (if any) additions or changes would be on there wish list ??

Takes a lot of planning to put out a kit.
