Help needed building a radio transmitter/receiver system

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to offer any help or advice on a project i'm currently undertaking.

I'm wishing to make one reciever that is able to distinguish between 5 different transmitters. For example if a signal from transmitter 1 is received LED no.1 lights, if from transmitter 2, LED no.2 and so on.

I have very basic electronics knowledge and have done some research into this area and have found an encoder/decoder chipset that might be able to help do this for me - RF600E & RF600D. The decoder can learn up to 7 different encoders and has a range of up to 20 metres.

I've also found the RF600T which can do a similar thing but also has low battery warnings and it confirms signal transmission.

Apparently these are easy to use chipsets which can be inserted into any RF circuit. This is my problem as I have limited electronics knowledge i was wondering if anyone could help point me in the right direction of a suitable RF circuit or what i would need if I were to design my own.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

James

    Hi James:

    I've always found interesting and helpful information on this subject int the ARRL Handbook. All of my local libraries have copies on hand.

    Take a look!
