FaradayRF Telemetry

Few radio amateurs use the telemetry functionality of APRS. We count telemetry as any standard or BASE91 telemetry packet. Over a 24 hour period we’ve observed around 44 distinct stations with an average of 13 stations sending telemetry over 5 minute periods. This pales in comparison to the entire APRS-IS stream which in 24 hours Read more about FaradayRF Telemetry[…]

Introducing aprs2influxdb

We’ve been hard at work on #LaunchWithFaraday moving ever so closer to an awesome ham radio buoy. This pushed us to focus to improve telemetry support. In doing so we realized that remote telemetry is one of the things that amateur radio can absolutely thrive at. The current support for it in the hobby is Read more about Introducing aprs2influxdb[…]

Raspberry Pi Gets A Faraday & Things Get Sticky

During the past two weeks we’ve made some significant progress with our Telemetry and APRS software. These are both efforts to shape up our software for the #LaunchWithFaraday campaign where we aim to build several buoys and high altitude balloons using Faraday technology. Everyone benefits because Faraday gets better along the way and will soon Read more about Raspberry Pi Gets A Faraday & Things Get Sticky[…]

#LaunchWithFaraday

FaradayRF has come a long way since our balloon flight in August 2016. We’ve designed 900MHz hardware, manufactured over 100 Faraday boards, and we’ve shipped hardware to customers. We’ve merged open source contributions on GitHub from multiple developers too. It’s no secret to some that the software quality has drastically improved thanks to contributions from Read more about #LaunchWithFaraday[…]

SimpleUI – A Basic User Interface

The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Amateur Radio Club informed us they were launching Faraday on a High Altitude Balloon in April/May 2017. We wanted to help out by developing a user interface to use for their mission. Out of this effort came SimpleUI, a no-frills user interface built to satisfy a need and showcase the Read more about SimpleUI – A Basic User Interface[…]

Faraday Proxy Test Mode

Faraday Starter Packs have been shipped around the United States and we have users helping develop the open-source software with us on GitHub. This is incredible. Obtaining hardware may not make sense for everyone however and we wanted to fix that. If you love what FaradayRF is trying to do and want to experiment/develop without Read more about Faraday Proxy Test Mode[…]

Using the Telemetry and APRS Applications

Faraday owners will find that the Telemetry and APRS applications are fun to play with. We encourage you to play with them shortly after going through the Quickstart guide! Telemetry Out of the box, a GPS enabled Faraday is quite capable. The GPS provides location awareness for Faraday without extra hardware. It is also a Read more about Using the Telemetry and APRS Applications[…]

Contribute to Faraday Software

Many of our customers just received their Faraday starter packs this past weekend! Shipping them was tons of fun, thank you for your orders. Several of you have already made it through our www.FaradayRF.com/Start guide and blinked the LED on the board. Congrats all! First blinks! @faradayrf pic.twitter.com/ONqHp4Oct6 — Mike (@notsureifsane) February 18, 2017 Right Read more about Contribute to Faraday Software[…]

First production batch Faraday PCBs

First Batch Radios Available!

Tuesday morning we sent out an email to the first 25 subscribers to the FaradayRF Newsletter with information on how to order Faraday as part of a priority group. This is a perk we mentioned several months ago on the newsletter. Anyone can order Faraday now however these 25 people have the ability to jump Read more about First Batch Radios Available![…]

Evolution of Faraday

We’ve come a long way with Faraday and it’s evolution has been fun to see. The concept of Faraday began at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY in 2010 while Brent and I were Electrical Engineering students. Deeply invested in K2GXT, the RIT amateur radio club, we were unsatisfied with what amateur radio technology Read more about Evolution of Faraday[…]
