Wow. Seriously I was just going to post about my $35 GPSDO. I've used
some discipline to not say "for just a little more I can get..." and gone
the lowest cost route at each decision point. Just to see what happens.
Price does not include GPS receiver, plug-in power cube and case and I'm
not shooting for really great spec's. My goal was lowest price possible.
The unit is based on the one posted here by Lars Walenius. I replaced his
$30 Arudino with a $4 part and added an LCD display.
It's not finished yet. I plan on changing out the LCD display to a $4
Nokia cell phone part that does 84x84 pixel graphics. I'd like to have the
GPSDO do its own primitive graphs and setup menus without need to be
connected to a computer.
No intent to compete with a commercial product. I'm not going to sell
them. But in time I'll document it.
