GPS LCD Display Project

GPS receiver (Gamin, Eagle etc) to PC interface cables -  GPSy(TM) has extensive documentation on how to create your own data cables, and if you are handy with a soldering iron (or know how to use crimp connectors), there are some instructions.

GPS Receiver Based Frequency Standard -  Frequency accuracy has been a topic of special interest to many amateurs and experimenters since the early days of radio.  Until recently, the best frequency standard available to most hams was a crystal oscillator carefully adjusted to zero-beat....

GPS Receiver Support Kit

Handheld GPS Glareshield (or Dashboard) Mount with Power Supply -  My first two GPSes were both Garmin eTrex models. One was the original yellow eTrex, and the second was the eTrex Legend which has more memory, and most importantly, mapping capability. Neither of these is an aviation GPS, but both can be useful in the VFR cockpit..... [Stefan Vorketter]

How to Construct Garmin GPS Receiver Interface Cables

Inertial-navigation system uses silicon sensors -  16-Sep-04 Issue of EDN  A strap-down inertial-navigation system uses silicon sensors to measure displacement without entailing the bulk and expense of moving parts or GPS receivers. For example, a three-axis accelerometer and three angular-rate sensors can determine the position and velocity of a vehicle such as a robot or radio-controlled aircraft.....

Phase Shift Radio Direction Finder -  .....

Three Power Supplies for the Garmin GPS-20 Sensor Board -  Since the GPS-20 is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) product it does not come ready to use out of the box. There is no display, only a 12-pin JST connector that provides two RS-232 compatible serial ports, a One-Pulse-Per-Second (1PPS) output, and power. There is also a MCX style connector for the antenna connection..... [Steve Bible]
