Yeah, I don’t know anyone that works for NASA.

A bit of an experiment, but IRLP is going to attempt to provide a stream of the Demo-2 launch audio, now set for Saturday May 30. Tune in to Reflector 9601 beginning at 1100 eastern (1500 UTC). The launch is scheduled to happen at 1522 eastern (1922 UTC). We expect to keep the stream up until the dragon docks with the ISS some 15 hours later. Weather forecast sounds a little questionable, if the mission is scrubbed, the next attempt will be the following day, Sunday.

A few cautions before connecting.

1. Reflector 9601 is configured for listen only, no matter how strong you are.

2. Since this launch is hosted by SpaceX (not NASA), it is possible the stream may include content not normally considered appropriate for your repeater. It is possible it might include a advertisement or music. If you don�t like what you hear, it is your responsibility to disconnect. We will not be exercising any control over the traffic.

3. Extended transmissions are possible. All IRLP Nodes have a non-configurable, built-in timeout of five minutes. If your repeater has a timeout shorter than five minutes, it may drop out prematurely. We think (hope) there will be breaks in less than 5 minute intervals. But no guarantee, so you may have to reconnect if your node times out.

4. Make sure you have the means to disconnect. If your node is configured for duplex control allowing you to disconnect while your node is transmitting, you are good. Otherwise you may need SSH access or other means to manually disconnect. This is particularly important for simplex nodes.

Enjoy!

Re: What is the the correct version? and how to upgrade.

I am afraid to add another variable to our troubleshoot. Once we get the router going we can address this issue. Present is probably 7.1. There are commands on the computer to upgrade.

As Debian 7 is no longer supported, you will have to do a few extra things to move from 7 to 8, then it will follow the usual upgrade path from 8 to 9 and 9 to 10.

The Pi version is easier because it already has the archive options in the default version.

You can google how to upgrade from Debian 7 to 10, and there is a good site that has a lot of info.

It should work fine with 256M of RAM, but swapping the RAM chip for something larger would not be too hard. Any used computer store likely has piles of RAM chips for that series of board.

That sounds like one of the first revisions, based on the VIA ML6000.
With only 256M of RAM, it will struggle running Debian 10, but it will work.
I have sold embedded upgrade kits to others running that same hardware.
You could recover and reuse the IRLP board. Perhaps consider converting it
into a Pi-based node with some minor modification.
I have considered making another batch of upgrade kits for embedded node
owners that want to breathe new life into their old nodes. The problem is I
need more than just a single order to make it worthwhile.
This kit would take a snapshot of your node and expand it out onto a new
flash drive (8GB or larger) to bring you up to date with the software.
The current hardware is all capable except the flash disk. I would make the
kits for $130, which includes Air Post shipping.

Hello Dave,

Thanks for the information.

My embedded node's OS is sys linux 3.10. Init ver 2.84 and linux
2.4.32 IRLP

Main processor is C2 667 A Mhz 133x5.0. RAM 229376K memory - DDR266 DIMM
2.5-3-3 256 M Transcend. Primary Master Transcend 2.0 Flash drive
Transcend 40 pin IDE Flash module 128. Mother board EPIA-ML rev A

IRLP V3.00 I/O interface 2002.

In the document that you sent, the screens don't seem to be quite the
same as pictured.

Even if I can ''reset'' the password, will this node still work
properly or is the hardware and software outdated ?

Can the motherboard be upgraded.

Can the software be upgraded

Can I salvage anything such as the IRLP board V 3.00

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks for your help.

This document should help you, especially if you have an older
embedded node with a flash drive.

Hello,

I am new to IRLP. A few years ago I purchased a used working imbedded
node from a licensed amateur. I had to delay my amateur radio project
for health issues. Now that I am back I would like to get my node
working. I tried to re-program the node (it will boot) however I
cannot login as I do not have the login and password codes. I tried
to contact the previous owner and amateur who programmed the node
without in success. They may have moved or passed away let alone
remember the login and password. When I purchased the node there was
a 13 page manual written by Dave VE7LTD with no mention of the login
user ID and password.

Any suggestions as to reset the user ID login and password or will I
have to re-install the software.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Re: CentOS and Debian Not installing

It was likely the BIOS issue. I find that RAM is usually the culprit if some issue doesn't exist with the BIOS or framebuffer issues.
