    My knowledge of Linux is VERY limited. I have the data from my weather station coming in on my network TCP/IP. My weather software is running on the same Raspberry Pi. It generates the wxnow.txt file with current conditions. I can't figure out how to select the file to transmit via Xastir. This was pretty easy to do with APRSIS32 on my old XP computer.

    It will build on Linux or Windows.

    Something like the SignaLink works, but spending ~$5 on a usb sound fob and a custom cable works just as well. I don't even use PTT. VOX works just fine.

    I have never used Fedora. Does it use ALSA?

    Xastir will take weather data from a serial or USB port. I don't think it'll take it from a TCP/IP connection or read a text file. Sorry.

    @W4EAE , yes, on one of my Fedora 32 computers, when I type "# aplay -l" it comes back with 5 HDMI sound devices and one analog device (probably the TRS connection). I don't have a high end GPU in this computer, but I remember there being about another 1/2 dozen sound devices associated with the GPU also. I haven't played around with DireWolf in a while. Maybe the latest version has been improved to deal with so many sound devices.
