About this project

This projets adds the "Roger Beep" function to a radio transmitter (CB, amateur radio, etc.). The circuit can be installed inside the radio transmitter, or in an external project box.

The microphone must be connected to the Roger Beep box. A cable from the Roger Beep goes into the radio microphone jack.

Roger Beep, Arduino UNOC/C++
The main program
/*
This program uses Arduino as an external "Roger Beep" for installation on a radio transmitter (CB, amateur radio, etc.)
It transmits a "beep" sound at the end of transmission (after the PTT has been released by radio operator).
The microphone must be connected into the Roger Beep, which is connected on the radio microphone plug.
PTT: Push-TO-Talk, the transmit button.

Audio output: pin 8
PTT: pin 13 (+5V)
PTT input (PTT readout): pin A3

C - do
D - re
E - mi
F - fa
G - so
A - la
B - te
*/

#include "pitches.h"  // Include the music notes library.

// Roger Beep melody:
int melody[] = {NOTE_C3, NOTE_E3, NOTE_G3, NOTE_C4}; // do mi so do.

// Roger Beep melody nodes duration: 4 = quarter of a note, 8 = eighth of a note, etc.:
int noteDurations[] = {16, 16, 16, 16}; // do mi so do.

int analogPin = 3; // PTT (push-to-talk) analog input: analog pin 3 (PTT reading from radio operator).

int pttRead = 0; // Store (memorize) PTT status from operator.

int pttPrevious = 0; // Store (mmorize) PTT state of previous loop (PTT release).

void setup() {  // Initializations.
   pinMode(LED_BUILTIN, OUTPUT);  // Initialize digital pin LED_BUILTIN (pin 13, PTT) as an output.
   digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);  // Initialize PTT: OFF (turn off LED).
}

void loop() { // Main function, endless loop.

  delay(20); // 20 ms delay for "debouncing" PTT.

  pttRead = analogRead(analogPin);     // Read PTT input from radio operator.

  if (pttRead < 512) {  // If operator presses on PTT.
      digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);   // Activate the PTT on radio (turn on LED).
      pttPrevious = 1; // Goes to "1" if PTT has been depressed (memorizing PTT status).
  }

  if ((pttRead  > 512) and (pttPrevious == 1)) { // If PTT has been released by operator.
     
    for (int thisNote = 0; thisNote < 4; thisNote++) { // Play notes one by one until the end of the list or melody.

      // To calculate node duration, take 1 second divided by the note type.
      // ex: quarter of a note = 1000/4, eighth of a note = 1000/8, etc.
      int noteDuration = 1000 / noteDurations[thisNote];
      tone(8, melody[thisNote], noteDuration);

      // To distinguish notes, add a minimum delay between them.  Note duration + 30% gives good results.
      int pauseBetweenNotes = noteDuration * 1.30;
      delay(pauseBetweenNotes); // Pause between notes.
      noTone(8); // Stop playing note.
    } // End of "for" loop.  Play next note.

     pttPrevious = 0; // Re-initialize PTT state memorization.
     digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);    // Release PTT on radio transmitter (turn off LED).
