App note: 868 MHz, 915 MHz and 955 MHz inverted F antenna

868 MHz, 915 MHz and 955 MHz inverted F antenna (PDF) application note from Texas Instruments: This document describes a PCB antenna designed for operation in the 868 MHz, 915 MHz and 955 MHz ISM bands. This antenna can be used with all transceivers and transmitters from Texas Instruments, which operates in these frequency bands. Maximum […]

Magnetic loop antenna controlled by Arduino

This video by Ricardo Caratti demonstrates his method for controlling a Magnetic Loop antenna with an Arduino. The antenna’s tuning capacitor is adjusted using a stepper motor interfaced with the Arduino equipped to read IR commands sent from a compatible IR remote control. This allows the tuning capacitor to rotate clockwise and counterclockwise. Due to […]

Testing CMA-77-100 antenna with SYM-RFT-77 DCF77 receiver module

Michail Papadimitriou is in the process of developing a Nixie clock which will synchronize with the DCF77 time signal. These standard time signals are transmitted on 77.5 kHz from Germany, and Michail intends to use a DCF77 Time Receiver Module, like SYM-RFT-77 to demodulate the signal. Basically, this module receives the time standard signal and […]
