A quick test to see how a cheap  inexpensive graphic LCD can display real time LTC, and evaluate the LCD in terms of how much modification to the open source software is needed

Take a bright yellow Hammond 1553 plastic box and hack a hole in it.

CNC Milling it under water cools the milling bit so the plastic doesn’t melt. Only took a couple of minutes to cut the hole, nice clean edges.
Blu-tack a LCD module,a cheapo generic RF receiver module and little circuit board left over from another project.

Copy some software I wrote from my precision TC generator into the microthingy, and bodge it to use a LCD instead of a LED display.

Almost got it straight..

Just need a matching red box for the LTC transmit side of the equation.

Not bad for a couple of days work.
