Because I'd like to move to the SGP4 tracking algorithm for QRPtracker (and failed to port it well to the 8-bit ATMega644) and because there's no substitute for real programming power, I'm playing around with the PIC32 processor, as conveniently provided in the CUI32 experimenter's board. My goal is to milk this for all its SRAM and flash, but keep the power down to the single-digit mA level so that I can use a pair of AA batteries to power it.
Here's some power observations to get things going:
Video: Farhan in the SolderSmoke Shack! BITX, JBOTS, McDonald Straw Sig Gen, uBITX, Sweperino and more! - Thanks again to Farhan for visiting us. It was great to see his reaction to my humble implementations of his great designs. I got him to sign my BITX17. ...
