COVID-19 emergency

Dear Customer,

due to the growing spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are forced to temporarily stop our sales activities until March 25th.

Since the situation is not fully defined, this date could be postponed in the event of future unpredictable developments.

We hope that this situation could be solved soon and we all could get back to normal activities.

No, you are not crazy. I can not see any files in that folder either. I am using an iPhone XS max mobile phone. I don’t know if results might be different on a desktop computer.

Re: G7OCD USB power meter

I can't remember - a nano or an Uno, I will have to look - right looked. Uno with a cheap USB host shield £5 from Ebay but some of the other Arduinos have USB host built in - there is no android involved despite the legend, an LCD display and that's about it. There will be a better way but it was thrown together in a hurry.

Thank you Mark, and Alan / Mike / Dave / John.
I now have some software to play with and hopefully I'll be able to measure power again in the next few days.

When you make a silly mistake and kill a piece of test equipment, you just don't realise how much you use it........Until it's gone.

Hi David - it appears that Jason’s web site that was hosting this content has sadly gone out-of-service.  I work with Jason, and have a copy of the Windows software, so can provide. I have your e-mail address, so will ping you over a download link.

Re: G7OCD USB power meter

David Bowman <g0mrf@...>
 

That's a very good idea. I wasn't looking forward to having a PC taking up space on the desk.
Was there a particular Arduino you used or is the code 'generic'

Thanks Mike

Not sure there were any instructions, just the software but I reverse engineered the serial data to read it with an Arduino.

The problem was with any BT internet. The solution posted may now be out of date but I do not have BT Internet (and never will) so sorry I cannot answer your question. BT webmail could be different to standard BT internet. Certainly the solution of ensuring that the required email  senders are in the safe senders file worked for my correspondents. Good Luck to all BT Internet users!!

It is NOT just an io problem. It happens for various media. I belong to a choir and we have had numerous problems with BT internet reject gmail also.

The solution is for BT Internet users to adjust their account settings as per the advice at http://hexham-orpheus-choir.org.uk/btinternet-email/

The above refers to advice for receiving John Fletcher files but using the same actions to whatever is getting lost should help.

Essentially you should ensure that UKMicrowaves@groups.io is in your safe senders list. The problem is very much down to BT Internet

Hi Mike
 
I meant, LCD not LED! I still have my slide rule which I used every day until I bought my first calculator for £70. I had to raise a capital expenditure form for management approval.

Hi Mike - it drives an LCD display, I suppose it could be made to drive an LED as well, but it's not likely to compile on the latest Arduiono IDE without some tweaking as libraries change over time and are rarely backwards compatible. Easy only for those familiar with the Arduino IDE. I recall it connects via USB. There is nothing to stop you writing your own windows software but maybe Justin is doing that.

The Ebay boards just give a voltage so its very easy to interface to them. You could even just use a voltmeter and a slide rule.

Hi Mark

Might it make more sense for the software to be uploaded to the Microwave Group Wiki https://wiki.microwavers.org.uk/Main_Page

Then it would be available for the whole community.
