Hi Paul
I’d also offer to put it together for you but I’m in the north of England. Hopefully one of your compatriots will offer to help or you could ask your local radio club. Good luck 😉

Hi there Paul good morning.
I just wanted to wish you well in your request for help for building morserino.
Id offer to help but im in s.w Scotland so maybe a wee bit too far away.
I'm sure there will be someone near to you .  Maybe a member of a radio group or club near to you.

Good luck

George

ack! Soldering onto a lipo... brave !!

I went with a different battery option than I've seen on this list.

I had one of these lying around the house, a spare camera battery. 3.7v single cell 1450mah.


I put it underneath the PCB with the larger standoffs and just soldered the wires straight to the battery and the board with no connector. I tacked the wires onto the battery terminals directly with a dab of flux and a very hot very fine point tip so as to not dwell on the battery and have it maybe explode on me ;)

The Moserino will charge it just fine, though it takes like 12 hours, but the battery life is crazy good, about a month with at least 15 minutes of usage every day.

I'm super happy with it but soldering directly onto a LiPO might not be for everyone.

I store the extra JST pigtail underneath the module, where it fits no problem.

All these batteries will be charged by the Morserino32 through the built-in USB connector - just make sure the power switch is set to ON while charging!

Hi Paul, I think you have made a mistake, This group is for people wanting to use morse code. If you intend to do any driving please don't come to England.

See Steve's (K6ZX) reply to the recent post titled "Package from Austria".  It is the best explanation of available batteries and how to choose that I have read.  I use a 1S Lipo rated at 500 mah, that I got from 'AM Main Hobbies" web site. Fits perfectly under the Heltec and works fine.

I  Ordered the morserino. I am looking for the battery that go under the helsec and is charged by the  unit .   many thanks wb2gin/3


Carry case update ..

Hi all ..
Just a update to my last  .
The gameboy colour case or bag I was speaking about looks more like a travel bag .. prices and condition can vary .. but they are very well padded.

An ideal carry case

George Anderson
 

Hi all good morning.

I've recently joined this group and completed my m32 .. brilliant kit

In my quest, I discovered a need for a small bag or case that could accommodate the m32, batteries, cables and a paddle perhapse. 

A good option is a case from a " gameboy colour " one of the vintage 2 compartment type. The smaller compartment will take the m32 plus cabled n batteries .. larger would accommodate a compact twin paddle and other items with ease

Just putting the idea out there

Re: screen readability

Thanks for your prompt response, Willi.  I am using Windows Terminal.  Everything is working fine now.  I think it was a case of operator error.  I rebooted, reset everything and all is well!

 

Love the Morserino, especially the Echo Trainer!!

Trying to get output to computer screen.  Set port baud rate to 115200 as per Appendix 5, but nothing appears on screen.  When I click on Open, the Open button changes to Close, so I think it is opening the port.  Morserino is working fine with normal audio output.  Is a special app needed on the computer to receive and display the Morserino output?

Here is the manual:

It explains the game rules etc.
 
It looks a nice little kit and I might order one for the fun of building, would be nice to see such a game on the morserino.

They don't fit under the Heltec module and have to go under the main board using the longer standoffs as indicated in the assembly instructions but I've gotten many hours of use on a single charge.

As for charging, the Heltec module has the charging circuitry built in. Just plug a USB cable in and make sure the switch is in the ON position. If the orange light is flickering very fast after plugging in the USB, then the power switch is OFF and needs to be switched to on. If the orange light is on solid and very bright (no flickering) then the battery is charging. The light will go out once the battery is fully charged.

Howdy folks. I just received my kit and was looking at batteries. I have my eye on a few and have not delved completely into the build or the instructions yet. Does anyone have a preferred battery they chose? And also as far as charging goes, once this thing is put together is there a charge port on the outside or do I have to take the battery out to charge it when needed?
