What am I met with when I try to run soundmodem?
sm: Cannot open PTT device "/dev/parport0"
So, it would seem I did not have the parallel port turned on the bios. Ugh. Reboot and set it on.
Next I just set the sound level using aumix to about 75 % or so and pot the mic up and give it a go....
call ax0 mplsdn (on local 145.67 MHz). and what do you know, I get connected on the first go. So I pop in a heard list and see that there is good old W0CRC bbs in the list and soon I am back to 1995! Ah, the good old days of bbs'ing.
Thanks Bob for the good write-up on your page!
Need to write my own findings up some day, but that is not today.
Now on to a second circuit and set of cables for the HT and mini laptop to try some faster non-standard baud rates to see what I can get away with for speed on just the voice end of things.
