    Hi All,

    I just put the finishing touches on my Auto Antenna tuner, which uses a T-Network, driven by an Arduino Due, and also uses a Raspberry Pi with an LCD screen to display a Custom Build JavaFX Interface.

    I have posted an overview video on it on Youtube here:



    In the process of writing it all up, and hopefully having ARRL publish it, so others can build it.

    More to come and more videos....

    Curious, did you use a program/library/api to do the display? I have some projects that could use a nice display showing temp, voltage, etc.

    Yes, there are a couple of JavaFX libraries out there that you can use for Gauges, but I used this one:

    I then used those to modify them a bit, to make them suitable for my LCD screen and for what I wanted to do with the tuner Display. It worked out pretty well.

    HI All,

    My second video in the series of this tuner is here:



    I will do one more that shows all the internals, but this one talks about how it tunes, and shows a demo of it tuning...
