433MHZ Long Range Radio TinyShield examples
« on: April 04, 2018, 03:13:06 PM »
Hey all, I am very new here and am looking for some help on my first project. There was a question posted (http://forum.tinycircuits.com/index.php?topic=1645.0) a few years ago that would answer it, but no sample code was posted. I have two RF tiny shields, and the only examples I can find are the robot control example and the paintball watch example, which are pretty involved chunks of code. I am not yet that proficient at coding, so I don't quite know how to vary the paintball watch code to make a simple RF tx/rx code. What I want to do is read barometric, temperature, and pressure data from my other tiny shields, and send that data through the rf shield to another rf shield which will read on my computer's serial monitor. I hope this question is simple enough. Really I would like to see some simple RF tinyshield code if you have it.

Thanks

Hi, I'm waiting for two of the 433MHz transceivers to be delivered and started to look into this as well.
For now I could not find any Tinyduino-specific examples, but I've stumbled upon this library:
https://andreasrohner.at/posts/Electronics/New-Arduino-library-for-433-Mhz-AM-Radio-Modules/

It looks promising.
It's supposed to be an alternative to the existing VirtualWire and RadioHead libraries. VirtualWire seems to be not maintained right now and RadioHead is a bit complicated to use imho.

I'll post an update when I have received my own devices or if I find any other solutions.
