Introduction: Wireless Communication Arduino RF

433Mhz  RF Transmitter + Receiver Module Link Kit will allow us to connect two Arduinos and that can communicate. Data you send on computer Transmitter show on Arduino Receiver screen.

    An extra antenna is needed, please use spiral 50Ω a quarter wavelength antenna

    Technical parameters of the transmitter head

    Product Model: MX-FS-03V
    Launch distance :20-200 meters (different voltage, different results)
    Operating voltage :3.5-12V
    Dimensions: 19 * 19mm
    Operating mode: AM
    Transfer rate: 4KB/s
    Transmitting power: 10mW
    Transmitting frequency: 433M
    Pinout from left to right: (DATA; VCC; GND)

Step 1:

You will need for this project:

Arduino Uno

Arduino Pro MINI (you can use Uno instead of Pro MINI if you want)

WH1602 or HD44780 16x2 Character LCD Display

433Mhz or 315Mhz RF Transmitter + Receiver Module Link

Prototype BreadBoard 830 tie points

male-to-male cables

male-to-feemale cable

10k potentiometer

3.7V battery

Step 2:

How to upload sketches on Arduino Pro MINI.

    Remove Atmega328 from Arduino UNO
    Using male-to-female cables connect Pro MINI to UNO RX-RX; TX-TX; RST-RST; GND-GND; VCC-+5V
    Change in Tools-Board-Arduino Pro or Pro MINI
    Upload sketch

Step 3: Receiver Code

LiquidCrystal lcd(7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2);
char cad[100];
int pos = 0;
void setup()
lcd.begin(16, 2);
lcd.setCursor(1, 0);
void loop()
byte buflen = VW_MAX_MESSAGE_LEN;
int i;
if( vw_get_message(buf, &buflen) )
if(pos < 2)
lcd.setCursor(0, pos);
for (i = 1; i < buflen; i++)


Step 4: Transmitter Code

char cad[100];
int i=0;
void setup()
Serial.print("End with \".\" each data");
void loop()
if( Serial.available() > 0)
cad[i] =;
if( cad[i-1] == '.')
cad[i] = '\0';
vw_send((byte *)cad, strlen(cad));

Step 5: Receiver Scheme

Step 6: Transmitter Scheme

Step 7:

Print any message to the Serial Monitor window. End with point ".'

Press Enter.


Thats my video with final result: (too long I think and on Russian, youtube subtitles are not so good but you can on it)
