Portsdown - where do I begin?

Post by g8gtz » Sat Jan 07, 2017 5:51 pm

Good question! And to try and answer it we've updated the BATC wiki pages.

For an introduction to the project - everyone should read this https://wiki.batc.org.uk/The_Portsdown_Transmitter

For those who want to jump right to it, see where do I begin? https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Portsdown_Tran ... User_guide

For more detail on the hardware used and a list of component suppliers see https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Portsdown_hardware

Everyone will need to read the initial set up section (including those who don't read manuals!) https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Initial_setup

And finally there are "Portsdown - how to" videos on the BATC youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... 0FnFcz79_A

Let us know if this works - or feel free to edit and add to it.

Portsdown - what version do I need?

Post by g8gtz » Sat Aug 01, 2020 8:04 am

The Portsdown Introduction page on the wiki has been updated with a summary of the evolution of the various Portsdown models, including the new Portsdown 4.

New builders and those who want all the features but not the pain of being on the bleeding edge should use Portsdown 2020.

Maintaining the wiki for this fast developing product is almost as much work as doing the development - if you find any errors / omissions please correct them yourself or report them here.

As always thanks to all those Infront and behind the scenes for giving up their free time, so the rest of us can play 👍

Yes. Those are the default settings. You can change the password if you want to, but not the username.
