Fission2 Labs Releases Schematics For RadioLinc
Posted by Nick on 26 November 1999, 03:09 GMT

Fission2 Labs has released preliminary schematics for their RadioLinc. According to the page, RadioLinc can link two calculators together using RF UHF frequencies. The device is very small and schematics are available on the site. It should cost between USD $25 and $30 to make a pair.

I am in need of some programmers to program chat and email programs for the RadioLinc, please let me know if you can help!

I just wrote a really nice Instant Messenger. It allows conversation in complete statements when you want to send it. (No more turn taking or sending one character at a time.) I'm testing it right now. Should be released soon. This radio link just made it worth the trouble.

Can this thing transmit with getcalc and sendcalc?

I was also trying to design a network hub, but if this thing can transmit between more than two calcs without interference, I'll just apply the software I was working on to this.

Well, This is just happy news, playing tetris across the room. Amazing... Now I want something that can communicate to the tv like a universal remote control, so I can turn on and off the tvs at school to get the treachers peed off hehehe

You would need an infared link to do that. There are plans available somewhere, if you want to make one.

heres an idea, try wiring a variable capacitor in before the transmitor, these are easily adjustable with a flat head screwdriver, and by adjusting it the frequency of the wave will be changed. possibly a progarammer could write something into the chat software that would vary the capacitance according to the "chat"room you are in.

Hey! I am Really anticipating the release of it!=) But I was wondering, will it be able to send programs normally, or would someone need to write a special program to send other programs? PLEASE respond! Thanx.

I wrote a program for the TI-83 and TI-83 Plus that does this (BASIC). It allows you to chat almost in realtime. Each time you type in text, you automatically receive the message from the other calc. Best of all, the program only takes up about 350 bytes! Read about Kevtiva Chat here: http://spleenworks.web.com/
The program even works between a TI-83 and a TI-83 Plus!

I'd love to get that wireless link when it's finished! It could be the future of gaming and communication in schools around the world. :-) :-)

In addition to Kevtiva Chat, which has been out for a while, I am working on Kevtiva Instant Messanger, which will be a chatting program with many more features.

(sorry about the other post. I finally figured out what was wrong.)

I would be interested in helping you make calculator software for your radio link. I would also be willing to help with the actual link if you need help.

I have a 2-way chat prog that works wonderfully over the link cable. I'm perfecting it, then I'll post it.

Thanks! I am so excited about it also, just think, you can email your girlfriend in math class, while she is in Science, or even at home, heck, maybe even the internet at some point?? The possibilities are endless!

I promise I will make better schematics next time, I have Professional CircuitMaker and TraxMaker software to make these with, and I will provide more detailed instructions soon, I am just so busy working with it.

How powerful of a transmitter is this Radio Link going to have? Going from School to someone's house would have to be pretty powerful, and also, how would interference effect this?

a 433Mhz Transceiver Chip - depending on antenna size, up to 300meters. Interference of course may shorten it a bit.

Man, I hate to think about the possibilities (because its so exciting!). I went to tell your site to email me when they get this out, and got error 404 or something like that. so PLEASE! email me when I can get one of these. can't the 89s already do internet, only the just need a browser?

I got an error 404 also. E- mail me, too!
