TinyDuino / 433MHz radio TinyShield locator?
« on: October 22, 2014, 03:40:04 PM »
Hi Folks,

Although I've had my tinyduino since the kickstarter, I haven't really had much of a chance to play with it. My electronics knowledge is also a bit sparse, since it's been 20+ years since my high school classes ;-) So, open question.. Would the new Long Range Radio Shield mentioned in the last email newsletter be suitable as a basis for a locator beacon?

We live out of town, with cats, and surrounded by coyotes. Every now and then we have a hard time trying to find one of them before dark. I'd love to be able to knock up something that generates a radio signal every few seconds and have a second device that could 'latch' onto it and give an idea of direction/signal strength.

Cheers, Mark.

Woo! That worked. I couldn't figure out why I wasn't seeing anything, then found the console was hidden. Seems to be working to me!

mhudspeth,

I was just looking at the Adafruit library too. I'm completely new to Arduino, so bear with me, but taking the InternetTime.ino code as an example the following would be true?

Code: [Select]
// These are the interrupt and control pins
#define ADAFRUIT_CC3000_IRQ   2 // MUST be an interrupt pin!
// These can be any two pins
#define ADAFRUIT_CC3000_VBAT  A3
#define ADAFRUIT_CC3000_CS    8
// Use hardware SPI for the remaining pins
// On an UNO, SCK = 13, MISO = 12, and MOSI = 11

Is there a Lib for the WIFI Shield?
'

I'm wondering the same thing. I finally unpacked my TinyDuino, and was looking for a WiFi how to on the website.
