DLC7 hardware at DB0TUD digipeater

Since friday/saturday the digipeater DB0TUD operates with a DLC7 (data link controller). This makes the setup even smaller and consumes less power. A further advantage is that the XNET runs native on this hardware which should result in higher datarates although the CPU speed is much less than at the former linux/MIPS solution.
The 76k8 user port and the 19k2 link towards DB0PU use the both modems connected to the internal SCC’s.
The 9k6 user 70cm, 9k6 user 23cm (currently offline) and 9k6 link DB0DSD are operated with a TNC2 and a TNC3S connected to UART2 of the DLC7. The connection towards mailbox and TCP/IP services goes via ethernet. The serial terminal port remains unconnected for services.
