Arduino CW Beacon


I was messing about on 10GHz and I wanted to get my FT-817 (the IF drive for the 10GHz transverter) to "beacon". As there is no such function in the radio, I wrote some very simple Arduino code and used a Nano to key the CW line to the radio.

I've put the code here if anyone is interested.

It is the most simple thing in the world.....

The two wires from GND and D2 simply connect directly to the CW key jack on the FT-817.

Local conditions.
