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.)
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.
