News from DCC in Austin

Basil has the complete AX25 stack bolted to the transmitter. Proto 3 was shown tossing 9600 APRS packets to a Yaesu VX-8 at DCC in Austin. This includes the socket interface with support for IPV4 and V6.

We are now doing compatibility testing with commonly deployed 9600 TNCs. We don’t anticipate any issues with any properly functioning TNC, this is just a verification list:

  • Kantronics 9612 plus
  • Timewave PK96
  • Yaesu VX-8
  • Kenwood D710

Dennis has a non-coherent receiver working (it actually does FM Voice) which is the front end for the decoder. He is also working on a coherent receiver for higher speed modems which will give us an additional few dB.

We will provide another update after Pacificon in a few weeks.

Keep the Faith,
Bryan
