This page is where you can find the latest information on my IRLP node including any changes. I will be listing the control codes here instead of the IRLP status page to make it easier to find. As i stated in the introduction i started this project in the spring of 2013. The node originally consisted of a Raspberry PI & IRLP board stacked in a plastic case. The radio was a GE MVS that was tuned for amateur frequencies. Being a completely new to Linux this has been & still is a learning project for me. After struggling for about a year with different issues related to RF and  the fragile nature of the Raspberry PI i started to look for a way to make the node more robust. In the spring of 2014 with the announcement of the next generation IRLP and a subsequent post of the IRLP yahoo group detailing the parts needed i decided to go that way. The node now consists of an Intel DN2800MT mother board with an Intel dual core Atom processor running @ 1.86ghz with 4GB of ram and a 60GB primary drive. At the same time i rebuilt the node i also replaced the node radio with a Yaesu FT-2600. Below are some pictures detailing the construction. Update: As of June 2016 the Ft-2600 is no longer in use. The node is now linked to the repeater fulltime.

This shows where i tapped the mic and speaker audio on the mother board to keep as many connections as possible internal to the node.
