    Here's what I'm trying to do. I want to be able to press a button on one thing which will cause another things located in about a 10yard radius beep and vibrate. This idea seems simple enough. However, this isn't really my forte. That being said, I figured using the boards from kids walkie talkies would be my easiest route. I have a piezo speaker and a small dc motor that I want to attach and will turn on whenever I press either to talk button or the morse code button (which ever is easier) on the other walkie talkie board.

    Here are pictures of the walkie talkie's board, that I'm using.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    My Motorola walkies have a "ring" button that plays a ringtone on any matched walkie. It's a way to get the listener's attention, over and above just talking. Maybe you just need the right, ready-made solution.

    Do you have a way to measure the frequency of your "Morse code" tone, probably around 400Hz?
