Introduction: How to Make an Arduino Antenna

Picture of How to Make an Arduino Antenna

Hi, my name is Charlie and i had a need for a simple 1-wire antenna that i could interface with my arduino, and that's why i'm writing this.

Step 1: Parts List

arduino uno



Step 2: Putting in the Oscillators

Picture of Putting in the Oscillators

first, take the first one and place the left pin on g49

next, take the second one and place it on the + and - power supply rails

Step 3: The Antenna Itself

Picture of The Antenna Itself

first, take 6 inches of bare wire and put it in the - power rail.

do the same for the + rail.

Step 4: The Coil

first, take 3 inches of bare wire and make 3 coils

then, put it in the - rail and e45

Step 5: Wiring

first, put one end of a wire on f47

next, put the other end on d42

then, put another one on f49

last, put the other end on the - rail

*to connect to arduino, put wire on pin 2, digital and a42

Step 6: Commentary

Don't really understand what does this antenna do... And how it's connected, and how to program it.

to program, you simply pretend it's a wire connected to a component ( ex. LEDs )
