181  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Windows 7 and Arduino UNO on: July 22, 2012, 07:01:07 pm
Did you follow the instructions in the link that I posted?  The only time that I have seen the serial port grayed out is then the drivers are not installed.

First of all, check for software updates, then reboot and try again.  If it continues, delete everything related to the Arduino IDE, download it again, and see what happens.

Follow these instructions http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Windows#toc4

I have no problem setting and resetting file associations for .INO files on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.  I would have to think that this is something wrong in your user profile.

Try creating a new user with admin rights and see if you can make the file association in the new user.  If you can, it proves that something is wrong with your user profile.

That is a Hakko 936 clone from China.

That model is a retired product  It's not for sale any more...

This is it's replacement Hakko 926 clone from China, perhaps you meant this: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10707

Are you logged in with an administrator account?
Also, are the .INO files opening with something else, or asking you each time what to open them with?

That sounds like a very workable project.

I respect the fact that you are reaching for such interesting uses for your Arduino - it is this spirit that leads to great innovations.

The problem has nothing to do with your abilities, it has to do with the regulatory process required to build and operate an EPIRB.  Contact one of the COSPAS/SARSAT partners and inquire about their fees for the legally required testing process -I recommend that you place this call from a seated position.   Unless this is a project that you want to invest tens of thousands of dollars into, then your only option is to break several federal laws, the penalties for which are rather severe.

This shows the pins on the chip, and their equivalents on the Uno board. http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/PinMapping168

There is no correlation between the location of the pin on the actual chip,and their location on the board itself.

ALWAYS refer to the pin number as listed on the board, NOT on a diagram of the chip itself.

This looks like a pretty decent starter kit.  The jumper wires, capacitors, resistors, etc look like a pretty decent assortment to me.

I think you would be well served by this starter kit.

The design of an EPIRB has to be certified by the USCG, THEN granted a type approval by the FCC.

Take a look at this page: http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/cg5214/epirbs.asp

You have quite a task ahead of you, and for starters the Arduino is NOT a radio transmitter, so I am not sure where you plan to make it fit in this project.

The necessary certification by a test facility recognized by one of the COSPAS/SARSAT Partners will run you an easy five-figure sum by itself.

All things considered, I would have to rate the feasibility as very poor.

They are available recorded after the session.
194  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: port arduino UNO(ATMega328p) for Android development on: July 18, 2012, 09:27:25 pm
You need the physical host shield to connect to the Android, not just the libraries.

Cheap as in poor quality, not cheap as in inexpensive.

can i take that for granted with "cheap" weller?

idk but it was like someone said they r bad now and everybody took that as a fact, is it true?

when i look at this, that doesnt seem to be that cheap to me:
