      Hi all
      For about two months now I have had my simplex node (GMSKRepeater) running on a stand-alone Raspberry PI, it's is brilliant.

      As the node (MB6IRL) is 'attended only', all I have to do is turn it on, the whole thing starts-up automatically and connects to my preferred reflector, it's wireless so the only connections are the USB between radio/gmsk (Tait from Nothants) and the antenna and DC supply to the radio.

      I don't need a keyboard or mouse connected or even a monitor, it sits in a small plastic box on top of the radio and that's it!

      See the video (MB6IRL) http://youtu.be/LmCu7N7kwNc

      I've recently done the same for a friend of mine running a DVAP (mw0rbl) and it works well, all you have is a DVAP sat on top of a plastic box housing an R-PI and that's it! No keyboard, mouse or monitor.

      Simply plug it in within range of your wifi router and you are up and running automatically with an absolute minimal setup.

      I am no Linux expert and I am not doing anything clever here, I'm just using and arranging what other clever people have done before.

      Software on both systems is the Jonathan Naylor packages.
