Nice to read you, so many years later!!
I've one Pi and it would be nice to use it with a packet application.
Something about APRS application, is perfect.
I'm interested in al least 3 PCB's (or in kit )
And if I tell this info to my friends here in Bilbao, is possible to have 4 or 5 more.
Thank you for your time!
73's and happy new year!

I've been working on a TNC for the PI. It is based
on the TNC-X, shrunk to the same size as the PI, and with the RS232
interface replaced by a 26 way stackable header. The TNC communicates with the
PI via the i2c bus, which allows more than one to be connected to the
PI, or via the PI's async port. It can be used with any PI packet software
that supports a KISS TNC. For i2c, I've written a driver the converts from the
i2c protocol to standard KISS over a virtual serial (pty)
John Hansen W2FS, who produces the TNC-X, has agreed to
supply the PI version..It will be available both as a kit
and assembled and tested. It will take a few weeks to get boards made, but
it would be helpful to know roughly how many people are interesting in
purchasing it. If you are interested, please email me, off-list if you prefer.
those new to the group who haven't seen them, there are photos
