Re: Frequency hopping experiments on the NRF24

Post by Phil_G »

As the thread has grown longer & longer it gets more difficult for a potential builder to follow, so I've started an all-in-one "how-to" document.
It helps me too, I cant remember what I did or what choices were made back in 2020 lockdown :D
Its a long way from complete but I wondered what members think so far, what have I forgotten or got wrong?
As it grows I might have to split it into 3 separate tx, rx & software documents as it includes many photos so the file gets quite big!##

The doc is now in the opening post of this thread, I'll update it there when I've done the receiver options

Cheers
Phil

Phil thats great to have all the basic info for setting up in one place.
Ive just got my set going all breadboarded at this stage. It was worth going through the full story as it alerted me to problems with CSN and CE pin numbers. I used a nano for the tx and an RFnano for the rx all from aliexpress. CE and CSN pins on the tx nano were D7&D8 this was discovered by trial and error!
This is a great bit of work and a credit to you and those that helped develop it.
Regards
John

Good point John, I'll add a bit about the CE/CSN variations.
