It is so very cool to run into you again after 20 years. Regarding your description below, if you don’t mind I’d like to tell you how I have done this with my HF portable rig.
I never touch my Pi or radio at all while operating digital modes. Instead I host a WiFi hotspot on the Pi that is always running and hidden away in my rig backpack. I connect to WiFi with my phone and bring up the interface either with http, ssh or VNC tunnelled over ssh (depending on the app).
Pat : http, or ssh
Arim/ardop: ssh (works really well)
Fldigi: VNC or ssh+nc to the telnet port. I also have a script that starts fldigi in wefax mode and tunes the rig for hands free operation.
Hamlib scripts to automatically configure the rig for each mode: ssh or VNC with .desktop icons
Direwolf: ssh to stop and start
A typical operation sequence would be.
1) connect to WiFi
2) connect to Pi using ssh
3) run script radio_on.sh
4) run script direwolf30m.sh
This could be automated with a webpage, but this works just as well for me, and for most operations it is as easy to use as sending an email with your phone.
