Re: TNC-Pi9.6K to KISS TNC?

Max
 

It wouldn't be pretty, but....

All you need is a USB to TTL level serial converter connected to the tnc. I've done it with the TNC-PI and it worked fine. Ran it for a month or so with no issues. I would think the same could be done with the TNC-PI9.6K. There would be a few things to check first though. The orginal TNC-PI had its own 3.3v regulator that was connected to the 5v from the Pi. The two data lines will be at 3.3v levels. If the new TNC-Pi9.6K is the same the hook up would be the same. You just need to know if the power from the USB to TTL converter is 3.3v or 5v.

TNC-Pi9.6K to KISS TNC?

August Johnson KG7BZ
 

Has anyone given thought to using the Teensy board from the TNC-Pi9.6K to make a plain KISS TNC so those of us running PCs can have a 9.6K TNC? I have a bunch of 9.6K capable data radios that I'd love to put into service on 9.6K.

It appears that the Teensy speaks KISS on it's serial port, could this also use the USB port to connect to PC?

Thanks,
August Johnson KG7BZ


Teensyduino addin

I'm having a problem getting the Teensyduino into the Arduino IDE. This is to be used on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+. I built the TNC-Pi9K6 tnc to do 9600 packet, and on that board is mounted a Teensyduino board. I have the Arduino 2.0 IDE loaded on the Pi, but I dont know how to install the Teensyduino addin. Raspberry Pi is running Raspian. thank you, w8tcc, troy


Re: Running JNOS BBS on Raspberry Pi and TNC-PI

Daniel Holmes
 

Sorry just getting back to this, got distracted by life.

Found some basic instructions at this website (this is for JNOS 2.0): http://www.langelaar.net/projects/jnos2/downloads/linux/
I then copied config.h.default to a new config.h. I’d be happy to share mine if anyone’s interested, but it was pretty self explanatory.
Then I compiled it, there were a few missing libraries that it complained about, but was able to add them (Sorry I forgot to write them down, but it was something minor to do with ax25 on Linux).
Then executed JNOS, was able to attach to my Pi-TNC using KISS mode. I didn’t transmit any packets on RF, since I’m still waiting on my AMPRNet address, but I did a few tests without my radio hooked up, and I did see lights flash. I didn’t try monitoring any AX.25 frequencies, but plan to in the next week or so—I’m in the process of also getting my HF digital station up and running, and my play time is pretty limited.

Any questions, I’ll try and answer them, but it was really pretty easy to do. I’m not sure how much JNOS is still in active development, I may ask the author (at the link above) if he minds if I put the code up in Bitbucket.

Thanks,
Dan

How about information on beginner AX.25 troubleshooting on TNC-Pi? My PiGate has never worked. Always fails to connect (I think it connected once). My troubleshooting limited to getting closer to station and volume changes.

Re: it is runningTNC-PI and Kenwood TM-231A No Tx

Ron Short <ron@...>
 

Ok, found the issue. disclaimer...it was mostly operator error...

I opened the bterm in the BPQ directory. Turned on the MON. Then I put the radio on 144.390 APRS freq. Watched for decoded packets and saw them. Then I needed to find the correct volume set point on the TA-231A. I started at mid-scale, tried to connect, nothing. Increased the volume a bit more, nothing. Then set it to about 2 o'clock and connected, but then only to the switch. I am using Outpost as a client. For those of you using Outpost, in the setup>BBS, need to click on the Path tab and set up a KA-NODE, otherwise you will not be able to access the BBS.

So, it is all good now.

It uses some of the GPIO busses and pins. These are not compatible across SBCs. A lot of the capability is due to the use of this functionality and would be limited by making it a USB device. 

Raspberry Pi has sufficient computing for the applications we are designing for and there are millions of them deployed. They are inexpensive and have active development and community.

Our development and support costs go up with more platforms.

We are going to offer the DRAWS as a complete and integrated unit to drop into a station, at which point the SBC is just a part of the solution. We prefer to focus our efforts on this

I assume the hat includes two audio interfaces since there are two radio ports?

Are these defined as two devices? As most software have issues with using the save device. 

Looks like a great product.
