This is my first post and I'm also new to Arduino (I bet you hear this all the time)
I am putting together a project for my kids whom have shown a real interest in communications devices, specifically Morse Code. I want to encourage this and as normal I have over promised by saying I can deliver a self built Morse Code short range transmitter/receiver.
Scope: Two small self contained units, capable of transmitting and receiving Morse code over a short range (like 10 meters max, to stay within the law). Optional increase of scope to include visual decoder to help with training (but this depends on difficulty)
My research to date has been rather extensive and I have found lots of Arduino projects that include a Morse code transmitter or varying types, an FM receiver and a Morse Code decoder, but none seem to have done what I am proposing. Is this because what I am proposing is not possible for Ardunio or would be too complicated for a newbie.
So far I am considering the following equipment for each device
- 1 x Arduino Uno
- Elechouse v2.0 FM Radio Transmitter Module
- FM RDA5807M FM Receiver Module
- LCD 1602 Display
- Active Buzzer
- Would I need two Arduino's per device, i.e. one to handle transmit, one to receive.
- Is FM the way to go at all?, could I do the same thing with say an NRF24L01 module that is both transmit and receive, at the end of the day i am only trying to transmit/receive morse.
Any help and advice is greatly appreciated, thank you.
