BLE Is Great!

Hi everyone,

a quick update on the development of the wireless connection through BLE.

Well everything works like a charm and this is a great news.

BLE is quite easy to manage and it seems that Apple accepts the use of wireless BLE communication without problems.

For those of you that don’t know what’s BLE here’s a link with a very good introduction by Adafruit.

Here are the two modules I’m actually testing:

The nRF8001 by Adafruit (link $19.95) using the Nordic nRF8001 and the HM-11 Module (link $12.90) based on Texas Instrument CC2541.

They both easily connect to an Arduino board to create a serial over BLE solution.

The bad is that my KX3 decided to stop connecting via serial before starting the test and I still have to sort this things out. This worries me a lot but still haven’t got any answer from Elecraft support.
