Re: Introduction


Matt et al, the existing ax25 utils are good but confusing, I am working on a simpler interface and hopefully can produce something useful in about a month. I am also planning to include a 44net option if possible.

Hello, all.

I'm Matt, KC2O, from San Francisco, and I've been interested in developing a platform for a low-cost, low-power packet-based emcomm BBS system.

I have a fair bit of experience with PIC and Arduino-based projects, but neither of those seemed to be sophisticated enough to do what I think is needed. Combining RaspberryPi with a TNC-X (or customized equivalent) will be perfect.

(Incidentally, I just rebuilt the AX.25-including bootc kernel to support my wifi usb dongle, by following Dominique Gallot's excellent notes here:

While I have a fair bit of experience with Linux, I'm new to packet, and look forward to getting help from this group.
