It finally has come to an end and I was able to clear my workbench
last night after finding the last bug in my build. Turns out that indeed
a proper contact to ground can help a transistor to work :). So without
further ado, I present you the K5TRI RotorDuino 3-wire rotor computer
Now all that’s left to do is to make the schematics look nice so that I can actually share the whole project including source code.
