      I have heard, "make something simple and only the simple will use it."
      Dire Wolf does support to channels. In the zip files, there are a few PDFs to look through. I am working on implementing this on a Raspberry Pi. I finally got it to see my USB soundcard dongle yesterday. Now I have to put it down for about a week while needing to do something else.
      Best regards,

      Adam ...

      Thank you for your thoughts. Knowing the alternatives is a big help.

      I am on the learning curve, so I will start with one radio (rec only) and one instance of APRIS32. Then add a second radio for ISS, both radios receive only, and still one instance. If there is a need for the second instance, I will do it. As Einstein said, "Make things as simple as possible, but no simpler." ( At least, I think it was Einstein.)

      I live in an area that has very low APRS activity (probably due in part to the lack of nodes!). So, at the moment, doing a perfect implementation is less important than perfection would be in a congested area.

      I think I read that Dire Wolf (TNC software) can handle two channels of input (hopefully, right and left channels of the audio input to the PC). If that works, the whole deal would be pretty slick. And better yet, no additional hardware to purchase! In theory, at least.

      At the moment, a house-painting project is keeping me at bay.

      Regards ... Reed K7FLY
