If he happens to have the RT-Systems RTS01 cable for programming that radio, it is a CI-V cable. I believe RTS uses FTDI USB-UART chips... 

Interesting that flrig recognized it by its full “by-id” designator. /dev/serial/by-id/usb-RT_Systems-RTS01_Radio_Cable...(etc, blah)... port0. It also calls the Keyspan dongle I use for the Yaesu FT-817 by its long identifier. I don’t remember seeing that in Raspbian Jesse or prior.

Re: #Kenwood TS-440S #js8call #beta7 #din6 #kenwood #applications

Mike - KB0FX
 

Team - The DRAWS TI DAC does not have enough audio output to drive the Kenwood TS-440S Data Input connection which is on pin 11 of the 13 pin DIN connector on the back of the radio. This is not a issue with the DRAWS card. It is an issue with where the data input connection feeds into the TX audio chain. I have found a mod that moves the connection to a different point in the audio chain. I have put the mod on my things to do list.

Have you tried using the IC-718 USB connection from the Pi and DRAWS™ Beta image applications?

Unfortunately, the Icom IC-718 has only two connectors that can be used for interface (other than the mic input and the headphone jack): The 13-pin ACC connector and the CI-V jack. The CAT7200 program (for the IC-7200 or the IC-7100) uses the USB interface of the radio to create a duplex codec for audio and a pair of virtual serial channels for control, including PPT.

Interfaces like the SIgnalink have a cable that will connect to the 13-pin ACC port for audio and PPT (called SEND on the connector). So far no 13-pin connector interface for DRAWS that I can find (yet?).

Basil,

I followed the directions in Get Started.  I think I answered a prompt incorrectly regarding AX.25.

When I run ./app_config.sh core now, I get the "Already ran" statement.

I get the same ax.25 status results as before.

So, how do I get ax25dev. service and ax25 - mheardd. service running?

Many hamlib applications can be set to use VOX to the radio directly.

I think will have a look at the source code for hamlib to see if I can come up with a generic way for it to do the GPIO keying when it gets the relevant command as I think that should be with in my comfort zone.  The other method I was wondering about, is would it be possible to build an app that minics VOX. The app would "listen" for audio on the relevant device and set and unset the GPIO pin. (For this I would need to do a lot more research on google :-)

Perhaps this widget from the BPQ software collection will help out. I
have to use it with the IC-7100 to do packet.
