I am using this code


and this hardware



Managed to send sms ok however reading all SMS have been no joy.


Just wondering y whthe visual studio output produces funny characters: eg Ai5GA,j etc etc even thought the code is converted byte[] from utf8 string.



  private static string GetUTF8StringFrombytes(byte[] byteVal)
  byte[] btOne = new byte[1];
  StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder("");
  char uniChar;
  for (int i = 0; i < byteVal.Length; i++)
  btOne[0] = byteVal[i];
  if (btOne[0] > 127)
  uniChar = Convert.ToChar(btOne[0]);
  sb.Append(new string(Encoding.UTF8.GetChars(btOne)));
  Debug.Print(new string(Encoding.UTF8.GetChars(btOne)));
  return sb.ToString();



Components for Netdunio Plus 2

01 February 2013 - 02:42 PM

HI All,

I am coming from a .net background so programming won't be hard.


I just got hooked into Netduino about 3 hours ago. Immediately, I just want to build a computerized controlled watering system (now) and control some lights (near future)


Can you please suggest me what's the relay module for Netdunio Plus 2? I saw there are a couple on eBay/Amazon and I am a bit confused and not sure if they are compitable, and what else do I need in order build this system?


I am starting with two empty hands, and the items I have in mind so far are

1. solenoid wavles, pipe, drippers

2. netduino plus 2



Thank you in advance :)
