I've been noodling with a few things lately. I wanted an excuse to
start learning about electronics and _small_ computers. So I'm working
on a RF based link between my Palm Pilot and MH (did I mention that I
wanted to noodle with the Palm too).
So, I've got some small RF modules that are controlled by PICs. One
send/receiver controller will plug into the PC (running MH), the other
will plug into the serial port of a Palm.
I'm pretty early into this. So far the PICs are talking to each other
and I can echo data received to the PC or Palm. My 'goal' is to have a
Palm based generic two-way RF link to MH. This will generic, so I won't
be restricted to X10-type RF and the whole house/unit/cmd code stuff.
The link is pretty slow (2400baud), but the range isn't bad (corner of
the basement to attic/office 2 1/2 stories away, in and _old_ house with
So, if anyone's interested let me know and I'll keep you posted of
