Re: MobileGPS

Andy, what USB GPS is recommended? Will any $10 GPS from eBay work? Which one are you testing with?

Re: Pi-Star Remote

All, is there a way to include * as the keeper for the callsign list? We live in a small town and if the repeater messes up or we need the PI to use the backup routing because our internet goes down then it needs to be restarted. I would like anyone in the club to be able to send the restart command...

Re: command line link/unlink

I was thinking it should look like:

59 19 * * 1 "pistar-link 024_A"'''

however I am not sure as I have not written any scripts for pi-star before

Re: command line link/unlink

HI, for the not so savvy Linux guy (me). How do a write a CRON to do the following:

Link to 24 C on startup (that was easy)
Monday at 19:59 unlink 24 C
Monday at 20:00 link 24 A
Monday at 20:59 unlink 24 A
Monday at 21:00 link 24 C

Examples would be welcome, thank you
