    Hello,
    I am trying to build a pager encoder to send messages to a pager when I am at home. I live on a farm and we do not have cellphone service here.

    I found a very interesting project at http://www.winpe.com/gascop/ that has software and hardware plans for performing this task. I think this would be the perfect solution for me. When I am out of the house, my wife could just send me an email, and it would get sent to my pager.

    I have the Raspberry PI and the software is installed. I am confused by the circuit he is building though.

    I am currently trying to order the parts he used, but cant find the PHT6N03LT. Does anyone know if there is a compatible replacement for this part?

    Also, looking at his images, I see two blue devices on the circuit board. I am assuming they are some type of pot?

    My ultimate goal would be to take this design, put it into eagle format and get my first professional circuit board printed. I could really use any advice I can get.

    Thanks for your time
