Bluetooth Morse Key

I saw some comments in other threads about being able to send morse when using remote in the upcoming SmartSDR releases.

Earlier this week I was searching for information on a Bluetooth module for another project I am working on and found this.


A resourceful type could easily meld these devices together to create a simple Morse Key Bluetooth Adapter.     The cost of the components is around $30 excluding the key and programming time.

Anyway, the posts regarding the latest Flex Insider reminded me I saw this and I thought I would share.

You are welcome :-)

    Hi Richard,
    Thanks for sharing, that was pretty cool and not what I was expecting when I played the video.

    There are other options for creating a simple HID device.... another product from Adafruit would probably lend itself to the Morse Key Project too... http://www.adafruit.com/products/1697  The video explains in good detail the capabilities.

    Combine this with the Trinket http://www.adafruit.com/products/1500

    So many options.    It would need some experimentation of course, to ensure that it can keep up with some of those wickedly fast CW fans out there.
