Spent the last couple of nights playing with a simple electronic circuit to interface my PC to mt HT (BF-F8HP). Connected in through the microphone/speaker jacks to control audio and PTT. The PC connection uses a serial port to control a relay to send. Very simple but fun to play with.
Here is the code in BASIC-256 (http://www.basic256.org) to control the interface.
for t = 1 to 10
say “the time is ” + (hour)%12 + ” ” + minute
say “november 4 romeo echo november, n 4 r e n , testing”
