ICARC March 2021 Meeting: Slide, Links, and such

This will be an attempt to achieve a direct link from the JITSI meeting system into the W0JV repeater.
The link is composed of the server that hosts the club web page and the radio interface project KC0JFQ did back around 2013.
The radio used for the link is a Yaesu FT1500M.
The radio interface connects to the FT1500M using the 6-pin MiniDIN data port.

The JITSI Patch

The FT1500M on 146.850 and the KC0JFQ USB RADIO INTERFACE ready for operation

The radio interface hang timer is stretched out to try to keep the transmit active until the speaker stops speaking (i.e. to mask the normal quiet time between words).
Initially, the microphone that is local to the server is just sitting near the radio to relay audio back to Dick.
There is a bit more configuration magic needed to get both the local microphone and the radio connected to the JITSI meeting (so the control operator can talk to the program presenter).

There was quite a bit of real-time configuration occurring as we ironed out the kinks...
Thanks to all who helped out.
David K0LUM in particular provided a ZOOM account to get things correctly routed (JITSI didn't seem to want to talk to the radio interface).
