    Default cm17a Firecracker in the UK

    Does anyone know if the cm17a Firecracker would work in the UK?

    I can't think of any reasons why it wouldn't it's just I haven't seen it for sale here. I'm thinking of buying one from the US for use in an Arduino project but wanted to make sure it would work and that there aren't any fundamental differences between the x10 transmissions over here and in the US.

    The main problem is the radio frequency in the US its 315MHz and in Europe its 433MHz. If you want RFXCOM do something similar. www.rfxcom.com
    IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
