The ESP8266 Arduino Combination is a big win for microcontroller and Internet-of-Things hobbyists.
Finally, I bit the bullet and spent some money on a decent soldering station.
Having built the servo pan-tilt base and the plastic mounting jigs, it was time to wind the receiving magnetic loop.
Cheap magnet wire is just a glance away.
Sometimes you come up with 3D printer models that are just too hard to print. This is where cutting 3D models digitally comes in handy.
After trying the cheap plastic unit, I decided to build a more sturdy pan-tilt mount for my receiving loop antenna.
When debugging control systems for a 9G micro servo motor, it helps to check under the hood.
Making an antenna pan-tilt rotor just requires a few cheap parts.
My modern remote loop will sit in the backyard while I tune it from the shack. It will also let me play with some new toys.
Remote controlled loop – a little magic.
