IDer script question

Expand Messages
  • N5kf@aol.com
    There is an ID script that came with the computer (EchoIRLP), but it only seems to ID when the radio is first active with a call coming in, never after that.

      Is there a setting for this where it will ID every 10 minutes or so, or when closing down the link?

      I don t know what came with your node, but http://irlp.kk7av.com/add-ons/51-cwid will provide what you need. It will by default, ID on connect, every ten

        I don’t know what came with your node, but http://irlp.kk7av.com/add-ons/51-cwid will provide what you need.  It will by default, ID on connect, every ten minutes during activity and on disconnect.  Exactly like the FCC wants for US ops.  It is preconfigured to be polite and can use the AUX lines for tripping the transmitter.  It works quite well.

         

        Every ten minutes while not active constitutes a beacon, which we’re not supposed to do (there are exceptions).

          You could make an entry in custom.crons to have it ID every X minutes.
          I have mine ID every half hour between 8 AM and 8 PM.

          Don't forget to do an "update files" after editing the file, and if you didn't
          upgrade the node to the larger 2 GB flash drive with CentOS 5, you
          would also have to do a "flash_sync" (as root) after making the changes.

            Bob, below is a script I wrote that ID's the embedded node. It also displays the countdown information on the screen. I found it to be a great tool for introducing my friends to linux scripts.

                However wget wasn't able to grab the file. I looked in my browser
