 I'm Army MARS, my callsign is AAR6DQ   ARRL & W5YI VE

I Support the DX Code of Conduct 

The NEW CCS DTMF D*Star system my DTMF is 4611

I registered my website: http://www.w5tmp.com�so please take a look at my Radio Made Simple Blog.

For those using Windows and have the DVAP - Click on this Link (you will have to register on the website to see the program WINDV)

My Current D*STAR / RaspberryPi project -a VK5ZEA inspired RaspberryPi and DVAP mobile D*STAR Hotspot.

- Currently running RPI(32GB Ultra SDHC card Class 10), and2m DVAP and 70cm DVAP on a second R*PI, and a NQSMHS GMSK Modem on a 3rd R*PI.

If you would like to purchase a RaspberryPi, I bought mine from a company called ELEMENT14, there is another company called MCM Electronics they tend to have them in-stock (I highly recommend using MCM Electronics).

- My R*PI's I use �Manhattan 10-port USB Powered Hub

-CradlePoint PHS300 Personal Hotspot - Wireless access point - 802.11b/g,

(Cradlepoint requires a USB style Aircard, when I'm not connected to the hotspot on my Sprint Phone)

-NETGEAR� Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter, also I have designed several go-boxes with the "thumbnail" size wifi adapters and they work fine. -Intellinet� 150N Nano Wireless USB Adapter

- 4.3" LED monitor (12v) (this is NOT needed, but it is cool to have in the go-box)

-isound Portable Power Max 16,000mAh Poly battery.

Everything is housed in the Pelican 1200 Case. Just for giggles I am also using a Logitech� K400 Wireless Touch Keyboard�at Home. I have a MOBILE keyboard Rii Mini Handheld Keyboard, Touchpad, Laser Pointer�(about the size of a $1 dollar bill)

I currently run the Johnathan Naylor G4KLX, R*PI/DVAP image, you can download it fromhttp://www.westerndstar.co.uk/html/downloads.html,

you will need to download 2 files theWin32DiskImager(if you don't already have it),

and the ISO image for your device, whether it be a DVAP, GMSK modem, or DVRPTR.

You will need a program called WINRAR to extract the image from the download. http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-32-bit/3000-2250_4-10007677.html

There is some great info that Bill, AB4BJ has compiled from our little experimenting groups emails.

Here is a link to his website: http://ab4bj.com/wordpress/he also explains how to implement the auto-start on the AA4RC installation shown here below.

Here is the Demystifying the Raspberry Pi and DVAP Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Iws5D-eES8


AA4RC has released a RPI version of the DVAPTool program, Robin suggests that you use the following:

Rasbian "Wheezy" 0209 or better


and then install his software:

DVAPTool for the Raspberry Pi is now available for the Raspian Wheezy
distribution 2013-02-09-wheezy-raspian.img.
> Follow the steps below to install/run:
> 1) make sure you are running Raspian Wheezy 2013-02-09 and are connected to
the internet with your Pi.
> 2) open an LXTerminal window and run: "sudo apt-get install qt4-dev-tools".
Answer "Y" when prompted.
> 3) in terminal window run: "curl -O
> 4) in terminal window run "sudo tar xzPf DVAPTool-1.04-rpi.tgz"
> 5) in terminal window run DVAPTool with "./DVAPTool" from your home directory.
