RFu rescue

If you're thinking of playing with the Ciseco RFu radios I would recommend getting one of these from them at the same time.

Having painted myself into a corner by uploading an stupid sketch that saturates the radio, it was just a case of changing a couple of jumpers, popping the RFu into the socket inside and reprogramming it.

It's only a couple of quid more than their straight USB stick radios but you get yourself a more versatile device. This is doubly so if like me you don't already have a USB FTDI interface.

While the lid's open I may fit an external whip antenna, it seems rude not to.
