Hello, New to the forum, and new to Arduino (and programming in general really)
I collect and restore old communication equipment (Valve/Tube era)
I have an idea to control a 1960s radio transmitter and receiver using Arduino to drive the frequency selection lines.
This radio system uses a fairly simple system of open/closed contacts to select frequency - Link to the standard radio controller description and truth table below.
I would like to mimic the original control panel electronically, by using two rotary encoders for tuning, and either an LED or LCD display for frequency readout - the other controls are all simple analogue stuff, and will need no microcontroller intervention.
Probably a bit heavy going for a first project, but I like a challenge - so, any pointers where I should start?
