Really simple: Just hit ebay:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?rt=nc&LH_BIN=1&_nkw=remote+control+relay&_trksid=p3286.c0.m301

On the other hand, full transceiver on breakout board, with built-in antenna for $4.75:

We just got an ad. It showed up on the notification email, not here, though. I guess someone erased it. ... It looks like somebody already did that as the post you quoted seems to have disappeared.

Very likely.  Lately, AWOL has been the The Death of Spam (somewhat akin to The Death of Rats but more aggressive).

Why is it even worth a second glance?  Much less discussion here?

Exactly.  Please don't bother discussing the spam.  Just report it.

They do.

Spam (and other inappropriate postings) should be reported using the "Report to moderator" link right down there in the lower right corner of this box.

Exactly.

They get expelled.

But it doesn't prevent them from coming back under another name tomorrow.

They do.

We try to get to spam as quickly as possible, but mostly it relies on users reporting it*.
For some reason, most seems to occur when I'm asleep, so CodingBadly fields that, but there are still parts of the day where it may build up.

I have zero tolerance, and I send spammers a warning PM - if the spam is a new thread, it gets moved to Garbage, this automatically puts a redirection message at the original location,which I try to delete as soon as possible.
If the spam is a response ("Hi there thanks for sharing",with a spam signature), I simply delete it, PM the perp and move on.

But please, keep on reporting it.


*sometimes, there are easily-spotted precursors, and these perps get a special treatment.

 I looked over closely but, I am still unsure. Can that wireless device be used just like a (FTDI USB to TTL cable) or  USB to TTL chip? Does it share all of the same pin functions but, just named a little differently?

Thanks,

I don't believe so... it's just a Nordic transceiver.

It is really, really simple.
But either unlicensable, illegal or both.

Why would this be illegal? I never knew that wireless transmissions were restricted that much. That sounds like one of those laws that would be profoundly hard to enforce

Wow I didn't know that. I suppose if you stuck to frequencies commonly used by remote control cars or whatever that wouldn't really be a problem. I'm trying to imagine just generating some random signal in an attempt to transmit data small distances and a hour or two later cops showing up at your door. That would be surprising

Well, it would be OK until the kids next door started playing with their R/C cars.

Ha I would think one would be smart enough to sabotage the distress beacon in an EMERGENCY raft, considering that the whole point of them is to help one be rescued. Thats a good story.

I see a potential for a lot of fun in this... But realistically I think it would be fine for them because of the relatively complicated protocols used by R/C cars. More likely it would cause problems in the thing you with the arduino and receiver which would very likely not account for filtering out different protocols like the ones for the cars

I suspect that the only modulation type allowed in the RC bands is the standard pulse width modulation used for RC...  (in the countries that allow it at all)

Ah yes, its certainly not permitted to send data in the US on RC channels: http://wireless.fcc.gov/services/index.htm?job=service_home&id=radio_control

Hey I guess you learn something every day. I probably would have just tried it and not had any idea that what I was doing was illegal haha

That gave me an idea: How do the cheap r/c remotes and garage door openers work? Those are pretty cheap, and send very simple signals over RF.
