433MHz wireless connections are very commonly used by consumer electronics including weather stations, home automation remote controls, power consumption meters, car alarms, and also many DIY projects. The Weather Station Receiver project in the book Practical Arduino shows how to intercept the signals from a La Crosse weather station and decode them using an Arduino.

This pre-assembled shield implements the receiver circuit from the book, allowing you to get started quickly and start receiving data straight away.

It's also fully compatible with the "VirtualWire" library by Mike McAuley, allowing you to receive serial communications sent using a compatible transmitter.


  • Gold plated surface: solders easily and resistant to finger oil and other foreign substances
  • Fully pre assembled except for headers
  • Includes stackable headers
  • RXB6 receiver module with the data connection wired to Arduino pin 8 to allow signal timing access
  • Header pin for connecting antenna wire
  • Red and green debugging LEDs to display signal reception status
  • Reset button wired through Arduino reset pin
  • Blue LED to show when the Arduino is supplying power to the shield
  • Huge prototyping area where you can add your own parts
  • Clearly marked GND and 5v rails beside the prototyping area
  • Clear overlay markings on both the top and bottom! Makes it easy to solder connections on the bottom without having to keep turning it over to check the position of the parts
  • Pre fitted power supply smoothing capacitors
