Arduino Weather Radio

This is my first attempt at a weather radio.

Sources

Parts

The project uses an Arduino Uno, an Si4707 Weather Band Receiver IC, a 4-channel I2C-safe Bi-directional Logic Level Converter, a Mono 2.5W Amp and an 8ohm 0.5W Mini Metal Speaker.  

Results

Successful. Once tuned to the right frequency, I started receiving NOAA weather reports. 

Issues

The audio is weak. I probably need to use a stronger amp and or speaker.  

Next

I'm going to rebuild this project with a Raspberry Pi.
