A new educational platform has been created by maker and developer Rich Holoch, and as you can see from the image above the project is attached to a pair of stepper motors attached to a variable capacitor and roller inductor
Positioning is displayed on the Pi OLED display that is available from the adder fruit online store and offers a 128×32 PiOLED display to enhance your projects even further.
What started out as a personal project – to use the Elecraft KPOD to control the Palstar BT-1500A, has turned into an educational platform that I can use to write articles and give presentations at Makers Meetups and Ham Radio Club and convention gatherings. I’m giving my first urat presentation at EBARC in San Pablo in just two weeks – August 11. EBARC has a bunch of Diablo DXers, so that is “my club”. I presented at their February meeting and it was “Low Band DX Antennas”.
Rich Holoch has been documenting progress with the μ.RAT K-Pod controller project over on his blog via the link below. If you enjoy building Pi projects you might be interested in our comprehensive list of Raspberry Pi displays, HATS and small screens.
