HAL Clover/Pactor Driver for BPQ32 switch.

HALDriver

This driver allows BPQ32 applications to make and receive Clover or Pactor calls using the HAL Communications Controllers. It has been tested with the DSP4100 and DSP4200 models.

The driver configuration is specified in the bpq32.cfg file

MYCALL is set to the PORT config PORTCALL if specified, otherwise to NODECALL. Any MYCALL in the config file is ignored.

Configuration.

The driver is defined to BPQ32 as an External port, and needs some driver-specific configuration

The first line of the config defines what BPQ Application incoming calls should connect to. If omitted, calls go to the command handler.

APPL PMS ; Autoconnect to BPQ32 PMS Application

If you are using the Rig Control feature for scanning, add the RIGCONTROL command next.

The following Parameters are Supported

TONES
Sets the tones to be used, eg TONES 1400/1600

DEFAULTMODE
This sets the mode that the controller will listen for on initialisation. Options are:
DEFAULTMODE CLOVER or
DEFAULTMODE PACTOR

NEEDXONXOFF
The HAL 4200 uses XON/XOFF for flow control. If you are using a 4200 you must enable xon xoff handling.

Operation.

You must Attach to a HAL port before issuing a connect command. See the Using Pactor document for details. Once Attached, you can select which mode to connect in with the "MODE CLOVER" or "MODE PACTOR" commands. Then start a connect with the "C CALLSIGN" command.
