Gadget Freak Case #192 additional info

NO RATINGS

Contact me for a minor bug fix to the remote decoder PIC ASM code in Gadget Freak Case # 192, the remote volume control. The BITST subroutine was rewritten for better noise immunity. Alternatively, you can get the updated BITST subroutine from the remote fan control in Gadget Freak Case #198. Don't use the whole program, as it will slow down the volume control response. 

Alternate sources for the remote control to be hacked up:

Home Depot           Westek Model # RFK306LC   Store SKU # 567861

Home Depot           Home Accents Holiday Model # RC-009A-1   Store SKU # 202620 (Same as above units, but has two outlets).

Did you build it? Please let me know how it went. I built a second one and I use them every day.

I can tell you where to get the non-Allied parts.

I plan to build this for the High Sclool events where the auditorium volume is never just right.  I will be able to trim the volume while standing at the back of the auditorium where I can hear the true room sound.

I usually hack existing equipment to get what I need and I fully understand his penciled layout / wiring diagram.  Looks like the ones I make.

No, we're not having delusions of grandeur -- this is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. And we're dying to see how it works. Today, we tear down a lightsaber.
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
Fully adopting multiphysics simulation software enables companies to optimize cable and systems designs for a wide range of harsh environments.
