Arduino WiFi ESP8266 Intro Course – Saturday 19 March



The course will be valuable for the Arduino enthusiast / hobbyist who would like to learn more about how to add WiFi capability to Arduino or any other electronic projects.

These ESP8266 WiFi modules can then be used to connect to the IOT (Internet Of Things) environment, by connecting all sorts of devices (actuators/sensors).

Once you have accomplished connecting all your devices, complete Home Automation can be achieved.

Antenna Design And Build Course – Saturday 12 March



We are planning an Antenna design and build course on Saturday 12 March 2016 at House4Hack. During the course we will cover basic antenna theory and then build and test a high gain 5.8 GHz antenna suitable for FPV analog video.  The course will start at 9:00 and we aim to finish at 14:00.


In this course, you will
  • Receive a presentation on basic antenna theory (radio frequency propagation, impedance matching, coupler, filters, radiation patterns, gain etc)
  • Build your own high gain dish mountable 5.8 GHz antenna (ideal for long range analog video) – complete with SMA connector and coax, ready to use (all material supplied as part of the course)
  • Test the performance of your antenna by measuring the reflection and end-to-end transfer using a transmitter/receiver circuit
  • Compare the performance of your antenna with other designs, like a patch and clover leaf antenna
