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: http://www.gallot.be/?p=150.)

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

Hi all, I'm Paula G8PZT and I don't yet own a Pi but would very much like to :-)

My interest is in writing software for data-over-radio networking, VOIP, and SDR. Also have emcomms in the back of my mind.

I am hoping to port my applications to the Pi, so I can junk the power hungry and space wasting PC's that power my packet systems and VOIP repeater. I'd also like to develop new applications to take advantage of this exciting little device.

I have very little experience of Linux, being mainly a spare-time DOS and Windows programmer (asm/c/c++), but I'm hoping this device will finally give me the push I needed to get my apps ported to Linux.

Now I just need to buy one, or more... ;-) [I was told there was a big waiting list, so I waited for the rush to die down]

73, Paula

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.

Wonderful. I look forward to learning a lot from this group.

Hi Paula,

 

About a month ago I ordered one from Farnell, and despite being quoted 6 weeks it arrived in two days. This may have been a fluke, but the waiting list seems to be disappearing..

 

If your ax.25 code (like mine) is largely in assembler, then porting to the pi won’t be easy, but C shouldn’t present too many problems. But linux already has ax.25 and Netrom stacks, so you can take the higher level stuff, and hook it into the existing stacks.

Hi all, I'm Paula G8PZT and I don't yet own a Pi but would very much like to
:-)

My interest is in writing software for data-over-radio networking, VOIP, and
SDR. Also have emcomms in the back of my mind.

I am hoping to port my applications to the Pi, so I can junk the power
hungry and space wasting PC's that power my packet systems and VOIP
repeater. I'd also like to develop new applications to take advantage of
this exciting little device.

I have very little experience of Linux, being mainly a spare-time DOS and
Windows programmer (asm/c/c++), but I'm hoping this device will finally give
me the push I needed to get my apps ported to Linux.

Now I just need to buy one, or more... ;-) [I was told there was a big
waiting list, so I waited for the rush to die down]

Hi Paula,
 
I ordered a Pi from CPC last Tuesday morning and it arrived the following day. They told me they'd had a delivery of 2000 the previous week and had 700 left. You may be lucky...

Hi John,
 
That's good news, I'd better get ordering :-)

Hi John,
 
I assumed the likes of Farnell and CPC were still trade-only, so I was thinking I might have trouble getting anyone to sell to me.
 
No I don't fancy learning another machine language at my age so it'll be strictly "C", and I'll use as many of the existing hooks as possible. No point in reinventing the wheel if the wheel works ;-)
 
Something else to swallow up my time, lol!

Ok, Paula.

 

I’m building a version of the TNC-X that uses the pi i2c bus instead of a serial port, so I’ve had to learn PIC assembler. At least the instruction set is simpler than the 80x86!

73, John

Same here I can report when I receive mine, unfortunately at that time I will be overseas.
I will report when I arrive home in mid September...

Just notified by Allied that shipping will be delayed several more weeks. I paid for my order in June. Yikes!

In the USA, Newark/Element14 and MCM are the best options.

I have dealt with cpc and farnell for many years, if they have it in stck you can collect the same day from CPC's counter in Preston so ring round and see who has it.

Had a mailing from CPC today the Raspberry pi is free delivery if you order on part code sc1259002, in stock at 24-96 + VAT
Order by phone and pay by credit card.
