DIY Arduino TNC

I have finished building and testing a DIY Terminal Node Controller (TNC). With DIY TNC, it is possible for any radio to encode and decode signals in the Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) format. This TNC is based on the home-brewed TNC project by VK3DAN.

The TNC requires a smart phone running APRSdroid connected via bluetooth. It taps directly to a radio through dedicated audio line-in and line-out ports (or microphone in and speaker out). The PTT is automatically activated as a packet is transmitted. I’ve tested this TNC to work with the International Space Station’s (ISS) digipeater at 145.825 MHz, digipath: ARISS.
