Noditor - A simple node monitor.


This is the prototype of a small Arduino based device that connects
to a MESH node and within seconds displays key information about
its neighbours. It is possible to make this device very much smaller
 - really about the size of the LCD panel display.

The idea is that we may issue a person with a mobile node to set
up in a remote place and that person may not be computer literate,
or even a radio amateur. The antenna can be pointed in the appropriate
direction and the Noditor will confirm that it is connecting to other
nodes. The only control is a single on-off switch.
