Does anyone know the protocol for the Flexwire I/O port? I'm trying to interface to multiple Transverters and want to design my one interface from the Flexwire I/O port. Any help or explanation on what the protocol looks like would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jerry - there isn't a published set of I2C commands for PowerSDR.  We were hoping that experimenters would have built several I2C devices for the FlexWire port, but that just didn't happen.  The only supported devices are the UCB (K3TUF) and an interface to the Heros preselector.  Your best bet is to request a copy of the PowerSDR source code (gpl@flexradio.com) and look to see what has been implemented for the UCB or talk to Phil (K3TUF) to see what I2C commands he used for his UBC "widget".
