I was mindless surfing the Makezine blog when I came across a list of their top ten hacks for 2010. Somewhere in the middle was a $16 spectrum analyzer. Cool. I start reading it over and notice that this baby is based on a Texas Instruments CC1110f32 chip. Upon first read, this appeared to bear some similarities to the CC1021 in the VP2 console. The CC1110 is actually a CC1101 with an embedded 8051 microcontroller on chip. The next question then becomes, is the CC1101 compatible with the CC1021. Well yes, yes it is. So in theory, you could use this cheap pink instant messaging terminal as a Davis Wireless Weather Station receiver, with an included USB receiver to facilitate connection to a PC.
