LC Meter Update and Source

Filed under: Electronics,ham radio — Cranky Sysadmin @ 6:50 pm

I finally cleaned up the source code from my rendition of the LC Meter. Here s the source. Here is a modified freq counter library which works with my Arduino Mega2560. The original frequency counter library is here. If you have a mega1280, the library may not work without similar modifications that I made for the 2560. The AVR_MEGA1280 is lumped in with the other arduino flavors in the original library. I don’t have a mega1280 to test with so I didn’t make changes to it.


  1. For some reason, your library would not list with tar -tzvf FreqCounter

    tar (child): FreqCounter: Cannot read: Is a directory
    tar (child): At beginning of tape, quitting now
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    It would be really helpful for my project…

  2. It seems to be gzipped twice for some reason. Try gunzipping the archive and then tar tzf. This is what I have to do on my machine. I’ll attempt to fix the archive later.

  3. I should also note that I haven’t tried this library with the latest arduino. I recall having some problems with the release arduino version and this library.
