Thanks HackerBoxes! That was just enough info to help me with my WiFi connection for my Mac system with Airport extreme. My base station password uses "WPA2 Personal". There are no exact corresponding choices in Wicd other then WPA 1/2 (Passphrase) which wasn't working for me. I went into preferences (advanced) WPA Supplicant driver and selected "none" and...voila! I'm in! So, for those luddites who stubbornly insist on using Mac Computers here is your solution.
Thanks for the heads up! My card works well. No problems at all.
Trichinella? Next time avoid eating raw bear meat!And considering the viscosity of that mucous I'd say your board is about ready to ovulate. Ahhh the smell of it! Time to get it on dude!

I did once have my technician class license. It has long since expired. I never actually used it. I was curious and on a lark I decided to take the test and I passed. More and more I'm looking into the possibility of becoming a full fledged amateur radio operator. Eventually I'm sure I'll join the club.
Indeed. Replacing Serial1 for Serial doest the trick! SoftwareSerial does not seem to work with the Arduino Pro Micro.
Hey all you PC challenged (i.e. Mac OS X) people out there. Has anyone had any luck getting the HC-05 to communicate with their Mac Computer? I'm using El Capitan. So far I can connect via Bluetooth and the HC-05 tty port shows up in the terminal, but I've had no luck with moving data back and forth. I also suspect that the iPhone is a lost cause. Any detailed advice would be appreciated.
I tried again on my way to work today. I got a distance of 8.7 miles (14 KM), direct line of sight from my car to my house!
These antennas work great! Magnetic mount too. http://www.banggood.com/SMA-Male-Crimp-GSM-GPRS-4...
I suspect I'm going to hear from PhilKE3FL about this. I'm probably doing something that isn't Koser with the Amateur Radio community.
Great tutorial! I finally started working through the steps today and so far I've had great success. I managed to get the driver for the Chinese Arduino boards working on my Mac (OS X 10.11 El Capitan). I got the LED toggle button sketches for the two boards up and working and then I wondered what the maximum range of the HC-12 might be. My home happens to sit atop a hill which has a broad view over my town so I figured I would get good range of transmission. I modified the send sketch for the transmitter unit so that it would automatically send a signal to flash the LED on the receiver. I was able to travel around with the receiver unit and as long as the LED kept flashing I would know that I was still receiving a signal. I used external antennas for each module as you suggested. I set the transmitter unit running outside on my deck which overlooks town. I put the other unit in my car and started driving around. I found that I easily got a consistent signal around my entire neighborhood even in areas where trees and homes obstructed the line of sight. I then took to the highway. The farthest line of sight distance was FIVE MILES AWAY (8 KM) as the crow flies! I measured the direct line of sight distance on google from my home to where my car was parked. Amazing! It would probably go further but I decided to end the experiment at that point. The test was using my HC-12 with default settings unaltered. If I changed the HC-12 settings and connect the transmitter up to my rooftop scanner antenna I wouldn't be surprised to get even better range.
