    Default GE Orion packet connections

    Looking at the manual, it appears to want to be connected to Xdatain and Xdataout, for the MDC, but I'm not sure what internal interface, if any, there is, or how PTT is initiated

    I have an orion that's been laying around for a few years, and I figured I might as well turn it into an APRS radio, since controllers are dirt cheap.

    IIRC shorting pins 14 and 12 will allow it to power on without a control head...and it'd be a single freq. with no ext audio or connections other than for APRS.

    So, anyone have any detail on interfacing to external data sources?

    Currently, it'd be an OTM2, https://www.argentdata.com/products/tracker2.html

    I appreciate the input.
