Re: DFM17 Repurposing for ham use


Does the sonde have a MCU that writes to the Si4063? Changing the frequency is just a matter of changing the data in a register of the SI4063 and of course verifying nothing in the RF chain will cause a problem. 

Do you have a link to a pic or partial schematic of the  sonde? I could spend sometime on this sound’s interesting.

I've got a nucleo w/stlink as well.  I didn't have luck with it, though it didn't really make sense to me.  I just know MrArm was doing fine with a genuine stlink and I couldn't manage with my clone or my nucelo stlink.  I actually punted and switched to using a j-link interface I have, but that's not ideal either as DFM doesn't expose all the pins I need for j-link.  Anyway, I figured the shortest path to victory would be to just go ahead and order a real stlink with the NRST pin.  In fact, this reminds me that I need to go do that. lol.

Thanks Mike!

I'll order an ST-Link.  Does the ST-Link function on a Nucelo board also work?  (I can't remember why, but I've got one of those development boards)
