Remote Base: Doug Hall RBI-1
There has never been documentation to this.... EVER
I will be building it out soon -kb8jnm - still not complete if you are reading this.
For those that have a Doug Hall Electronics Model RBI-1 frequency agile multi port remote base and wish to use it on app_rpt / AllStar system.
This was originally created for direct use in a PC that has a parallel port for signaling the device. There is no other method built into the software.
It uses the first 3 pins of the parallel port and can not be changed. So if you have been using the pins for anything else, you will need to migrate them to higher pins than the first 3.
PP1 = data
PP2 = clock
PP3 = reset
No buffering is required attaching this to the RBI-1's DB9 interface on the correct PP pins. But, for some reason if you find you must, use a transistor capable of transitioning in less than 50ms on the data/clock lines.

Set-up inside app_rpt:
In Rpt.conf you will need to set a line in the nodes stanza:
