The Article

3/20/2015

Hi, Steve Morse KI6HGH here, I am writing this article for 2 groups of people, MARC, and SBARC.

MARC is a group of Hams in the Yucca Vally area, where I live. SBARC is a group of Hams in the Santa Barbara area where I used to live. I participate in several of the SBARC nets via Allstar.

I went to the 2015 March meeting of the MARC this evening. Rob Cloutier gave a talk on Arduinos, which are small microcomputers, and some of the neat circuits he has built. After the meeting, Rob and I, and several other members got to talking about these wonderful little peices of equipment, and what they can do.

One of the topics discussed was were to buy parts, boards, and other 'stuff', so I mentioned to Rob, and all assembled that I would put a list of suppliers up on my web site.

These links can be accessed by going to my web site http://www.ki6hgh.com and then clicking on 'Arduino Links' links on the main page or on the index on the left hand side.

The suppliers listed below, I have dealt with every one of them, they are listed in my bookmarks in this order. They are listed in this order because they are the best I have found. Each has their strengths and weakness, I am not going to say which ones are better or worse, but I will deal with every one listed again. Your miles may vary as we say!

Also there are several makers of boards. I have, and have used the following boards.
Arduino UNO, MEGA, the TI Launch Pad, and PCDuino, Parallax Basic Stamp, and the Parallax Propeller.
I have made some boards myself, mainly Arduino based, and some add on boards and shelds.
I may, if there is sufficent interest write a short article on each one.

If you need any help, parts, or just want to chat, about there wonderful little boards, you can call me on (805) 881-3055
or email, morsed2@gmail.com. I love meeting at a coffee shop, hint, hint!
