Re: Split Channel

First, thanks for trying out split-channels!
Some back ground.
Anna made a repo & got split-channels working around last April. I
picked it up last November & made some install scripts to configure
things a little differently.
If you follow the README.md file from
you will end up with the left mDin6 connector controlling an HF radio &
the right a VHF/UHF radio. What that does is make the right connector
device udr0 when it used to be udr1.
If you use the split_install.sh script from n7nix/splitchan it will keep
the left mDin6 connector for VHF/UHF which means it remains device udr0
and the right connector will be used by pulse audio for HF.
So November turned into December and I spent less time doing NW Digital
Radio stuff as the holidays started sucking up more of my time. This is
just to rationalize my excuse for what works & what doesn't.
The install script (split_install.sh) works OK.
The status script (split_status.sh) mainly used for debugging works OK.
The toggle script has never been tested but seemed like a good idea at
As it happened the split channel stuff worked well enough right away
that I started playing more with HF modes with packet happening on the
other channel. Seemed cool and I stopped script testing and did more
I have not tried what you are describing which I think is:
Install split chan
- which has ax.25 running on udr0, left mDin6 & HF on right mDin6
Run ax25-start when split chan is running
- shouldn't have to do this and needs testing
- pretty sure this will mess with the split chan config
- you can run split_status.sh to confirm
I need to finish testing split_toggle.sh which will go from split chan
to both chans either config'ed for ax.25/direwolf or both ready for HF.
Will get back to you in a bit as I finish testing with a clean image.
Anyways, I got a chance to try it as the prospect intrigued me. To be
I've verified, when running the
