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
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
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).
