We are excited to announce that our new 1 Watt 440MHz LoRa shield is finally here! Works with Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Now you can use a variety of digital modes, including one of the hottest new spread spectrum modes: LoRa. LoRa stands for Long Range and has some impressive weak signal performance. We have been able to successfully receive signals from -120 dBm to -130 dBm at an impressive 3000 bits per second over the 70cm band. This allows for some pretty ridiculous operating conditions, such as multi-mile non-line of sight paths with rubber duck antennas through forests. Of course, with...

As our company grows, we have been working hard to not only bring you great hardware, but also produce a series of guides to help you get started with each one of our products. Recently, we recruited a great technical writer to help with this. Our first posted guide is called: Building HandyTalkie: First Project with HamShield Hardware and Library   Guides can be found under our "Documentation" section, and will be posted under each product section going forward. For HamShield, we will help you get the libraries installed, write your first project, with future guides to help you get...

While we had a video of our TRRS Crossover Kit assembly, we now have a printed guide for those to follow along without having to watch a video. We have posted it here: https://www.enhancedradio.com/pages/trrs-crossover-kit-assembly The TRRS Crossover Kit is a great way to connect your HamShield directly to a computer or smart phone's audio headset, allowing you to both transmit and receive audio with one simple cable.

Need a great way to take HamShield on the go or attach it to your laptop? We have just brought back the HamShield case with laptop clip! These cases are laser cut out of high quality clear acrylic, allowing you to protect HamShield and an Arduino Uno, but also exposing all the header pins needed to access HamShield's powerful feature set.  The USB, power, and antenna jacks are all exposed on the ends.  For assembly instructions, we made a video:

We will be launching several HamShield library improvements this month.  These include: Improvements to CTCSS detection and encoding Ability to signal GPIO pins based on CTCSS detection Generic tone generator and decoder (DTMF or custom tones) Morse code decoder An improved morse code encoder Updates to all examples library wide We are currently in beta, and if all goes well, expect the release date to be in the 3rd week of October to all folks who added HamShield libraries in their Arduino IDE.
