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. Larry shared his side of the contact on video which is posted below my contact video.

Just a short update video letting my YouTube subscribers and Blog followers know why I haven’t been posting content for about the past 1/2 year. My next post will be a video update on the Kenwood TS-520S HF Ham Radio Arduino Frequency Counter PART 5. So you can look forward to that shortly. As always – “Thanks for joining, subscribing, following and thumbs up ratings.

In the video I mention I will post an inventory list of my vacuum tube collection so if a viewer needs one they can submit a request. I don’t have the list ready but when I do I will post a link to a PDF below and try to keep the file updated.
