hello world !
I am totally new to Arduino ( so new that tommorow i will have my first Arduino in my hands ). I am planning to create a text messaging transiver.
Let me know if i am thinking wrong but my basic thought is to have a standard 16 btn numeral keypad ( 0 to 9 *# A,B,C,D) and have a counter and a timer to each press ( when ever the time is < 1 sec, if the press is to the same btn change a character to an lcd display ). Lock every character to a position in the 2x16 lcd screen. Use A to C to transmit, erase, clear. Now that everything is in order I have to transmite those data via VHF or UHF to an other identicle transiver and the second one blink a red led to show that there is a message and by pressing the D key left on the numpad to show it to the lcd screen.
Te problem is that i know nothing about programming an Arduino and I don’t know how to connect all thinks together. I am pretty sure that by the end of this project I will learn a lot but until then I have to depent on the help and the knowledge of more advanced developers.
Hope I am not asking that much from the community.
Thanks in advance for your time.
