Being really familiar with the classic Siemens #Simatic S7 stuff, I thought I’d give me self a challenge and try out the new generation of  S7 stuff. The #TIA-portal and #S7-1500 series controller.
I hate training with dummy projects, so I thought playing around with a ham shack #automation project could be interesting, and it may be useful to. At this point I have just got the RS232 communication up and running with my #IC-7800, it is not much more exciting than that yet.
