Re: Full Duplex?

The model shown at Dayton is half-duplex only.  Some duplex applications will be possible using external hardware plus software, we'll have some application notes in the future.

Re: Heard on the street

Several years ago, I was working as a CTO of a government organization. We were low on funds to purchase public access PCs that we put in the libraries for people to use, but had a room full of discarded desktop computers from a recent replacement project. We had no extra seats of Microsoft products for these computers.

We put a flavor of Linux and OpenOffice on those PCs, deployed them to 4 different libraries and had zero complaints.

After a bit of tweaking, Linux looked so much like Windoze that the casual user didn't notice a serious difference. Five years later, that practice is still in use - when used desktop PC's are replaced, they go to the libraries and to the jail for use, running Linux, costing the local government nothing. 

There is nothing to worry about. Linux is generally more stable that Windows XP and at least as easy to use. This is nothing to fret about.

Hi all,

I was with a small group of hams this weekend talking about the radio. One of them mentioned that he was not interested in the radio because he did not know Linux. I think there might be some marketing issues here. I do believe that there will be web pages for set up ans applications so a user does not have to use the Linux command line? Or is that later? 

Tons of non Linux users out there.

A user would normally access radio functions either via a Web Browser or custom application running on their own computer under its operating system.

Many devices people use every day run a form of Linux and the user never knows. IOS on the iPhone/iPad are based on a Mach kernel (like Linux) and Android is a Linux based OS. Most home Internet routers are also Linux based.

If one is going to write new protocols or applications, then they will probably need some level of Linux knowledge, though one could cross compile and file copy for some applications.

It was good to meet you as well, John. Thank you for the information; it will be useful at some point in the near future.

Hi Matthew,

It was good to meet you in person at Dayton.

The chassis connector will be a solid, high reliability connector. I don't have the model number handy, but it has leads for you to create your own mating interface like Anderson Power Poles.

John,

What power connector is planned for this; many EmComm units have standardized on the Anderson Power Pole, so it would be nice to have this as an option at least.

The units at Dayton were engineering prototypes. They show the right form
factor and general layout. (The AMBE daughter card will be moved from the
RF board to the Computer board, the SMA connectors will be replaced by a
single N connector, and the power connector will be installed.)

Some folks took pictures at Dayton, but no "official" photograph is
available. The illustration here
http://nwdigitalradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/UDR56k-4.pdf is very
representative.
