Tutorial Article on using the BX-24 is being published

Started by cloxwerx February 20, 2007
A tutorial article I wrote describing how to get started using the
BX-24 and other NetMedia devices is appearing in an amateur radio
magazine called "CQ Amateur Radio" (March issue). The beginning
programs are simple and deal with sending and copying Morse code using
the chip. Additional programming is pointed to by the article which
deals with reading temperatures, using an LCD display and decoding
GPS-like sentences. For any folks out there who are just starting out
this may be of interest.

I just read this article, Dennis. This is a good intro for newbies to
the BasicX. Your programs can both generate CW and decode CW. The
decoding is normally the hardest part, but you pulled it off with a
fairly small program!

I normally don't read CQ Magazine because I'm not into contesting. But
I suspect they may see a rise in sales for their March issue.

I wish the FCC kept CW testing for the Amateur Extra class as the ARRL
advised them to. I think CW has a rich history in ham radio and I'd
like to see people continue to learn about it in the future.

Thanks Eric. It's always a thrill to know that my writing can make it
easier for someone to get into these great microprocessors.
