HI Kevin,

This is pretty simple, I have script that monitors a lot of things on your node called "Watch Dog" it's pretty robust and has a PING function that will do exactly what you're looking for... If your node disconnects from the internet you can have it broadcast a voice or tone via your Repeater/IRLP or Simplex node telling you there is a problem.

If you're only interested in the PING function we can scale it down to fit you personal needs.

I recommend you take your new IRLP node home, plug it into the
internet and power and then go change the status information for your
node at this link

Actually the only thing that needs to happen is the owner update the status page database. That can only be done from the node itself and requires no other notification. See http://irlp.net/owners/dbupdates.html

eBay has the boards starting as low as $35 US. Not too sure what shipping would be to Canada but it's a good start. You do need to get a parallel header ribbon which attaches to the board for your IRLP card.

Hi,

Typo: Also the newer boards do NOT support flash based drives, instead using SATA or mSata.

Re: Troubleshooting node 1642

Recommendations? Not really. I would continue to troubleshoot your audio, especially the cabling. Have you plugged in a set of headphones to the audio output line? Actual failure of the audio output is certainly possible, but I would consider it unlikely with no other physical events indicating possible damage.

As far as the IRLP board is concerned, the Version 3 (green) board can be harvested to use with the Raspberry Pi, but it must be modified to work. I would consider the modification to be permanent (not technically true, but probably best that you think it is).

You could also upgrade to a newer Mini-ITX board. All of my nodes are based on the Intel DN2800MT board. The DN2800MT is no longer manufactured, but they are plentiful and cheap on Amazon and Ebay. DaveC sells new nodes based on a newer replacement, although Coronavirus has made them difficult to get. Also the newer boards do support flash based drives, instead using SATA or mSata.
