Has anyone used the Raspberry Pi Pico yet?
As an upgrade? to my VFO designs, I wanted to have a go at using the new Raspberry Pi Pico, but not using Python.
I've managed to get the Raspberry Pi Pico running under the Arduino IDE by following the steps here...

It may need the latest Arduino installed first as I had an old Arduino installed and some things did not work.

This is the Pico running the Si5351 frequency generator board.

The LCD has an I2C board to drive it, and here is a good link on converting the 5V LCD to 3.3V....

If you are interested, here is the code.

I may try to vet the really cool VFO design with the animated dial going too.
Here is my ESP32 version..
