    Hi Alister, Thanks for your comment.
    I have an article about direwolf in the software communication section with a link to it's website.

    This page is a list of Raspbian repository software packages that can be installed with the apt-get command. Unfortunately DireWolf is not available as a package so it doesn’t appear in the list.

  • Comment Link Alister Saturday, 28 March 2015 14:52 posted by Alister


    You might consider adding direwolf to the list. I have been using it very succesfully for APRS from some time now.

    It can act as a digipeater and/or as an igate.

    Anybody has already tested the functionality of the GPIO4 line with the new Raspberry 2, please?

    Hi Hugh

    Ratings can be added for any package by clicking on any Rate It link which takes you to a submission form.

    Thank you for your rating of GRIG, which has been added to the list.

  • Comment Link Hugh Wardlaw Friday, 13 June 2014 22:46 posted by Hugh Wardlaw

    I wish that I could rate GRIG. It is pretty good. I would rate it Like. It is no HamRadio Deluxe, but it is a good start.

    Oh YES - in the command line:
    1) sudo apt-get update
    2) sudo apt-get install [package name]
    eg: sudo apt-get install soundmodem

    Yes. In raspbian on a Raspberry Pi connected to the internet, load LXterminal and enter the command
    sudo apt-get install (package name)

    At the top of this page is a paragraph on how to do this plus a link to a full guide on how to install software packages.

  • Comment Link KB5ITJ Thursday, 25 July 2013 23:58 posted by KB5ITJ

    Are any of these packages downloadable?
