New Product Announcement: TNC-Black, a version of TNC-Pi for the Beaglebone Black


John
 

Please pardon this being slightly off topic, but a number of members of this group have written me to ask if there would be a version of the TNC-Pi available for the Beaglebone Black.  While the BBB is slightly more expensive than the Pi it has a somewhat more powerful processor, better graphics and much more I/O (including multiple serial ports).  

There is a now a TNC "cape" for this computer available.  You can find full information at www.tnc-x.com/TNCBlack.htm

Very nice John. Any more thinking about a 9600 baud TNC product?

The prototypes of the 9600 baud are out for beta testing right now!

The 9600 baud boards are for the Raspberry Pi.   If there is sufficient interest/demand, it would not be hard to produce a version for the BBB.

John do you have a rough idea on price?  I would have to wait for bult boards.  Will they also throttle down if needed to 1200?  I have two GE Rangr UHF radios that are almost ready for these.   One going in a high spot locally and one going in my Van.

Sounds great!

Alinco mobile radios are supposed to do 9600. 

I hope to use surplus kenwood tk860 UHF radios

The Icom IC-208H has a mini-DIN connector on the back for data, and one of the pins is marked for 9600, although I've never used it.


Joseph Leitsch
 

I've been using an IC-208H on 440MHZ at 9600 Baud for 3 years now as a RMS Packet Gateway.

It has worked flawlessly using a Kantronics 9612 TNC into the 6 pin data jack.
