    Remote theia time-line? (Pro M successor)

    Will Theia’s radar section be apart of the mainboard assembly? Could it be split away and extended to somewhere else in 3D printed enclosure? With a bit of homebrew wiring.

    Could the Beartracker function be implemented into Theia?

    This idea would be especially hard considering the amount of digital trunking radio systems in use around the world. P25,NXDX,Tetra,DMR just to name a few. Potentially DMR? But it would be very area specific and require ALOT of work. Lots of open source code already written for DMR decoding...

    Possible new Stinger system?

    Have a feeling something is going to be released pre Theia. No news, just a general feeling. Cant keep peddling 2011 hardware forever.

    All i got at the moment is my Kustom Falcon gun @ (Kband) 24.150, that is in the log. There was some deviation, stinger was reading it from 24.150 to 24.148 ish Probably get my hands on a KA gun in a few weeks

    Finally got the balls to connect my patch and just connected the RX as per @SquirrelMaster Stinger Log File - VIP Power on & Warm Up then 24.150 radar pulses Terminal log file Date: 8/19/2020 - 9:16:51 AM ----------------------------------------------- 1C 02 00 00 18 18 06 00 06 00 18 00 06...

    I was told years ago it’s not USB but some else less prone to interference. USB would have made way more sense, in the years of VIP’s development USB 2.0 was common, USB 3 was even 2010. Type B connector must have been cheap? Half tempted to abandon my little project, get the feeling it’s just...

    Cheers Jon Seem to think it’s not transmitting the spectrum, just probably the raw frequency value to the VIP. looks like the limit on those chips The SP3222E/3232E drivers can maintain high data rates up to 235Kbps fully loaded. @SquirrelMaster What hardware would u recommend for sniffing...

    @jon5 @SquirrelMaster So.. interesting Got some communications to my spare CPU using (RS232 - 115200 Baud Rate) Seems to be repeating the same pattern of HEX over and over (06 06 00 1E) Quite possibly garbage signal atm as it has similar patterns on other bauds rates. Purchased a RS232...

    So Green to DB9 - Pin2 White to DB9 - Pin3 Ground to DB9 - Pin5

    Not close by, be a few weeks till I can get my hands on anything like that. Did a test it to see if it was talking TTL/UART Serial, this didn't work, but had some illumination of the RX on the Arduino lol Yea i know.. there is a big difference between 232 and TTL UART but I would have expected...

    Very Interesting, tested the type B sockets on the VIP CPU 13.8Vdc, unregulated straight from the battery to the HD Patch and any other accessories. Have a lab power supply so adjusted the voltage, output on the Type B moves with the input Got a serial pass through sketch in my Arduino Duo...

    The expansion box might offer up some more clues, I’ll take some pics when home. Probably say it’s 5vdc on the VCC, 12 would be a bit odd but knowing stinger quite possible. I have an Arduino with a 232 hat, might try connect it to my spare CC10 CPU Woukd find it very amusing if they had SSH...

    Fully agree.🙂 Also, The ELF could be provided for disassembly I really want to start this project but my Python/coding skills are rubbish. If some one is super serious about this and owns a stinger patch and wants to build and share, I would be happy to send them my spare beaglebone free to...

    Its quite possibly serial (RS232) comms. Similar to the old school PC mouse with a larger 9 pin connector. U can buy a RPI hat to connect. Also would require 1 talented programmer, that’s not me lol. Each device like HD,Display, LAB has a Sipex SP3222EEA chip it uses for serial comms They are...

    Fair sure the HD patch Blackfin chip supports Telnet over serial. Can’t imagine there is much security on that.
