Arduino Frequency Display For Kenwood TS-520S HF Ham Radio PART 5

This is PART 5 of the project “Arduino Frequency Display For a Kenwood TS-520S HF Ham Radio”.
Steve Leander from www.kv6o.com picked up where I left off in part 4 and completed the project.
He designed a complete DG5 emulator Arduino shield starting from the prototype circuit and adding 5v power regulation and support of a LCD display. Steve completed the software and shared the BOM list, parts purchase links, circuit drawings and his code (here). Thank you Steve for finishing the DG5 emulator board and Arduino code!

Many thanks also to Larry from YouTube Channel “RadioHamGuy” for helping with testing.
Larry makes many great videos about ham and CB radios.

    Super-cool TS-520S project! Thanks for passing that along.

  • VK4ZT:

    G’day…
    Wondering if you know of a similar add on for a Icom 706 original. I have one that works perfectly but for the liquid crystal readout. It has gone black and can’t be read. So I need an external digital readout that can be connected to the rig in some way.
    Hope you can help.
    Cheers

    Hi,

    I have a Kenwood TS-520S and would like very much to have a frequency counter like the arduino display.

    I also would like to have it built the one you have shown on the video.

    Are these units on sale and if they are, how much are they? Also, would like to know if you can ship to the Philippines.

    Thanks & 73,

    Frankie
