DIY remote kit for the IC-706 part 7: First on-air test

Good news folks: I have had my remote controlled IC-706 on the air and it works! So far I have only tested the receiver and on the LAN, but I still consider it to be a significant milestone because it was the first time I had the controls and the audio work together with a good antenna connected to the radio.


Gstreamer 1.4 on the Beaglebone

Today I found myself in a situation where I needed the latest Gstreamer 1.4.3 on a Beaglebone running a console image by Robert C. Nelson based on Debian Wheezy.

It has been a few weeks since my last update about the IC-706 remote rig project so here is a new one.


DIY remote kit for the IC-706 part 5: Power on / off sequences

DIY remote kit for the IC-706 part 4: Here come the Beaglebones

Last night I reached a significant milestone in this DIY remoterig project for the IC-706: I had the radio and the front panel talk to each other through a pair of Beaglebones and without any PC in the loop and without any wires between the boards for transferring power and discrete signals.
