A further project is to build a datamodes interface for the Clansman system.
Now, im starting to think like this -
The Drivers Box has two 7-pin audio connectors, two 12-pin harness connectors, a volume control, and a multiway switch. And I dare say, plenty of room inside. So what then, if I use one of the audio connectors for connection to the radio, the other to a handset/headset, and engineer the rear of the box for jack connectors, a 9-way D-type for PTT control, and a set of 4mm terminals? Then reuse (if the value is suitable) the volume control as, er, a volume control, and the switch either replaced with a suitable potentiometer for mic level control, or a set of attenuators to give fixed level intervals? (after all, the main control of mic level for digimodes is done from the PCs control window)
