We know what we are focusing on:"enabling technologies" that provide hams with tools to make their owncontribulions to die an. Ihese technologies range from relatively simple,low cost kils like the PIC H. which can be programmed to do a multitudeo f interesting things, to complex cutting edge projects like die PH SpreadSpectrum radio, or our new efforts to exploit Software Defined Radios("SDRs") lor ham use. In each ease, the end result is not a closed blackbox, but radier a starting point. Rather than being an end in themselves,these projects provide the basis for further experimentation anddevelopment.The Software Defined Radio concept is a case in point. Elsewhere in thisissue, Steve Bible. N7HPR, presents an introduction to SDRs, so I won’trepeat his description here. But after reading Steve's article, you will seethat SDRs have the potential o f moving radio design back into the hands o fLook fo r TAPR at these Upcoming EventsMay 18-20, 2001Sept. 21-23, 2001Sept. 22, 2000Dayton HamVantlonARRL & TAPR Digital Communication ConferenceCincinnati, OhioAnnual Memberehlp Meeting; Cincinnati, OhioPocket Status RcetstcrTuexnn Amateur Parker Radio CorpPO Box SI 114Denton, TX 7(5M6-ftll4PERIODICALPOSTAGE PAID ATDENTON.

President's Comer, continued.hams. Want to n y a new mode? With an SDR. you don’tItave to worry about the hardware, because the radio canbe programmed to be whatever you want it to be. Radiodesign won’t depend on the ability to find (and work with)surface mount components, but instead will require onlya device that’s rapidly becoming the most common toolin the hamshack - a computer.Our technical focus is right on. but TAPR does need tomake some other changes. Most o f those stem from thefact that Cireg did far more than provide the organizationwith leadership: he was a one man band who liandledeverything front maintaining the web site to being ourbook editor to monitoring each one o f die dozens o f f APRmailing lists. There’s simply no way that anotherpresident — at least, not this one -- can handle all thosetasks. As a result. I'm going to be looking lor a lot ofhelp, both from the other TAPR Board members, andfront members who want to volunteer.One specific change that will h i in place by the timeyou read this column is that I am asking each TAPR Boardmember to take accountability for a specific role withinthe organization. For exam ple, there w ill he a"Membership Director" whose job is to ensure that we aredoing the right things to grow our membership. TheDirector's job won’t necessarily be to do all the workhimself, hut rather to ensure that the work gets done.This change is important because TAPR can’t affordto be a one man show. An old boss o f mine used to drivehome the point about knowledge sharing by asking thequestion, "And what happens if you’re hit by a bus on theway home from work tonight?" A volunteer organizationis even more at risk from change (new job, workpressures, or plain old burnout) than a business, and wcneed to design an orgnization that doesn’t rely on oneperson Although Cireg was able to give us enough leadtime to make some plans (wc even titled a working sessionlast year "Life After Greg"), we may not be so lucky inlhe future. Spreading the work load will help us beprepared for a bus crash.I also hope that we’ll see volunteers taking on a biggerrole in the organization. There arc lots of folks out theredoing neat technical stuff, but there are also lots o f TAPRmembers who have the ability to help with other roles,even if they're not great w ilh a soldering iron or debugger.If you’d like to help TAPR, we’d like to hear from you.Finally, one of my other goals is to increase TAPR'smembership. I don’t think w c'vc done a good job orlening the ham community know what we’re all about,and if we spread the word, we should be able to bringmore members into the fold. Increased membershipprovides TAPR not only stronger financial resources, butPegs 2HfllirC content?

TAPR Elects Officers at 19th Annual DigitalCommunications ConferenceJohn Ackerm ann, N8UR, was elected the newpresident o f TAPR at the 19ih ARRI.TAPR DigitalCommunications Conference held in Orlando September21-24. 2000.135 hams, including a dozen from outside the US,attended the annual event, which includes presentation o ftechnical papers, hands-on dem onstrations, andbeginner's sessions. Over 100 people attended Fridayafternoon’s APRS seminar, and 70 were present for ateclinical symposium on programming PIC chips heldSunday morning.Ackcmiann succeeds Greg Jones, WD51VD, who hadserved as president since 1993, with. Steve Bible, N7HPR,replacing Ackcnuann as vice president. Bob Hansen,N2GDE, will continue to serve as secretary, and JimNeely, WA5LHS. remains treasurer. The elections wereheld atTAPR’s annual board meeting, held in conjunctionwith the DCC."Greg Jones led TAPR through a period o f growth andinnovation," Ackermann said. "On his watch, we broughtsignificant new products to market, including the DSP-93digital signal processing unit Totally Accurate Clock,and Mic-E and Pic-E data encoders. Greg also laid diegroundw ork for our Frequency H opping SpreadSpectrum Radio project. He guided us into the Internetage, along the way creating the TAPR SIG mailing liststhat now handle thousands of messages per month. Gregis also responsible for our increased publishing activities.His retirement leaves a void in TAPR that will be hard tofill."Ackermann said that his primary objective will be toensure that TAPR remains on the cutting edge o f radiotechnology, with a special emphasis on emergingconcepts such as Software Defined Radios. He will alsofocus on increasing membership and Optimizing theorganization’s management structure.Ackermann (ex-AG9V). who lives in Dayton, Ohio,has served on the TAPR Board o f Directors and as vicepresident since 1995. He was first licensed in 1974 andhas helped build packet tadio networks in Ohio andWisconsin. Ackermann is active on APRS, runs aL inux-based In tern et site at his home, and canoccasionally be found on CW chasing DX.Bible lives in Kingsland, Georgia, and has been aTAPR Board member since 1996. He was projectmanager for TAPR’s Totally Accurate Clock (TAC-2),EV.V1 Radio Interface. PIC Encoder, and DGPSReference Station kits.

The laborrequired to handle each issue is also a significanteffort.The TAPR Board has been considering for somelime whether we should move the PSR to an electronicformat. In addition to reducing our costs, an electronicPSR could be more timely and could take advantage ofmultimedia -- for example, we could print color photos,include audio or video clips, and even include softwareon oceasion.Now, we'd like to hear from you. Please letas know —bv email to tapr@tapr.org, comments on thetapr web site, or even plain old snail mail vvliat directionyou'd like PSR to go:1. Continue with a paper PSR. (If this is your choice,please let us know honestly - whether moving to artelectronic-only publication would cause you to drop yourT APR membership.)2. Drop the paper version and make the PSR availablethrough a "members only" page at the tapr web site (Ifthis is your choice, please let as know whether you’d wantan email notification that a new issue is available.)3.

Unfortunately, that systemis no longer available for new applications. TheM ETCON-2 system is a replacem ent for and animprovement to the original METCON system.The METCON-2 system is functionally similar to theoriginal METCON system, however there are somedifferences. First, instead of using a single IC 8751 as themicrocomputer system, the METCON-2 uses the newTAPR Universal Controller 8052 (TUC-52). This is aPage 6small single board computer that is capable o f runningBASIC with a rudimentary Hie system (as well asassembly coded application programs). The TUC-52 isdescribed below.lhc METCON-2 system consists o f several boards,some o f which are optional. In its most basic form,METCON-2 consists of a TUC-52 controller board and aMETCON-2PB personality board. These two boardsrecreate the original METCON functionality, which is 8bits o f binary ovcr-voltage-protcctcd inputs, frequencycounter for each o f the binary inputs, and 8 bits o f controloutput. Additionally, the METCON-2 will provide theability to program the system in BASIC for advancedcontrol and measurement functions.One item missing from METCON-2 is the isolatedform A (SPST) relay contacts. To save money and spaceMETCON-2 provides open collector current sink outputsinstead o f dry relay contacts. However, for thoseapplications drat require dry relay contacts, a newmultiple relay module, the MULRLY board, has beendesigned. Tliis module is designed to connect directly tothe METCON-2PB personality hoard and provide 8relays with form C (SPOT) dry contact outpuLs. Anadditional change provided by METCON-2 versus tireoriginal METCON. as requested by many users, is that allconnections to tire outside world are by means o f screwterm inals rather than the lever wire-compressionterminals. Tliis should improve interconnections in thoseenvironments where vibration is a problem.METCON-2 is fully compatible with the originalMETCON ADC (analog to digital converter) module, theVTF (Voltagc/Tcmpcrature to Frequency converter)module and die FTP (Elapsed Time Pulser) Module.The minimum METCON-2 system consists o f dieT U C -52 (TAPR U niversal C o n tro lle r) and theMETCON-2PB (METCON-2 Personality Board) To theminimum system you may add additional modules orboards such as the ADC. VTF. ETP and MULRLY. Eacho f these will be described briefly.METCON-2PBlhc METCON-2PB is a 4.5" by 6" circuit board dratcontains the circuitry needed to make the TUC-52 acomplete METCON-2 system The board is easily addedto the TUC-52 by means of a 50 conductor ribbon cableconnected between 50 pin headers on each hoard. Thefunctions provided by the METCON-2PB arc: Powerc o n d itio n in g and c o n tro l. 8 inputs w ith signalconditioning, schnriu trigger (74I1C14) and 8 inputmultiplexer. 2 MAX232 line driver-receiver interfaces, aRS485 transceiver, a simple two wire serial bus interface,and a watch dog timer.Packet States RegisterWinter 2001 - issue #80

TUC-52 D escrip tio nIntroductionTins board serves as a universal controller based on the8051/8052 architecture. The constraints arc to have aboard that is capable o f operating with internal maskedrom or external EPROM, and that the memory mapprovide both Harvard (separate code and data) or VonNeuman (combined code and data) addressing modes.RAM sites arc provided such that up to 64K. o f RAM canbe addressed on the board and both RAM sites may bebattery backed up. There are several pre-programmedmemory maps that the user can choose by placing shuntson shorting blocks. One particular memory map willallow the operation olTNTEL's MCS BASIC-52, a standalone "tiny basic" system that includes floating pointcalculations and a rudimentary file system for storing andreceiving basic programs as well as the ability' to beginexecuting a user developed preprogrammed basicprogram at reset, without any operator intervention.Plenty o f bit I/O has been provided for so that bussignals do not need to leave the board. However,provision is made for a limited bus to be conveyed toanother closc-by board.CPU and Associated GlueIC1 is die CPU socket that holds most any member o fthe 8052 family that uses a 40 pin DIP package, includingthe Dallas DS80C320. 1C1 typically is stuffed with an80C32 (the rom-lcss version of the 80C52). Y1 providesa standard clock frequency o f 11.0592 MHz that allowsfor common baud rates on die serial UART port.Serial communications with die CPU via an on-board"poor man's" RS-232 interface or un off-board RS232lin e d riv c r/r c c c iv c r su ch as p ro v id e d by theMETCON-2PBThe CPU may execute code from it’s internal maskedprogram memory or from an external EPROM. Thechoice is determined by the positioning o f a shunt.Many different memory installations arc possible widtTUC52. At the bare minimum (and we really neverexpected to operate this way) it’s possible that TUC52could operate with only internal code and data within the8051/8052, leaving IC4. IC5 and IC6 unpopulated. Morelikely is that IC4 will contain an EPROM with code andthat the 256 bytes ol'RAM internal to an 8032 will be usedfor read/write storage. Most simple applications can runin this mode.M oving up the scale o f com plexity, the nextcmbellishcmcnt would be to have a RAM device at IC6.In this configuration IC4 could be mapped for code spacefrom OH to 7FFFH while IC6 could be mapped for codeAND data from 8000H to EFFFH.Winter 2001 - issue *80When TUC52 is used for MCS BASIC-52 programdevelopment a RAM device would be added at IC5 whichwould be configured for data space from 0 to 7FFFH. Inthis case 1C5 serves as working program memory whileIC6 serves as the file system Tor storing programs anddata. When TUC52 is used as a stand-alone mountain-topMCS BASIC-52 program execution system. IC6 willhold a ROM that contains the user’s BASIC source codeprogram. A ROM is used in this case instead o f BBRAMbecause it’s more reliable.I/OThere are two main types o f I/O for TUC-52: processorI/O and memory mapped auxilary I/O. Processor I/O isI/O provided by the processor IC itself while auxilary I/Ois that provided by memory mapped 82c55 parallel ports.First consider processor I/O.Iliere are two processor I/O ports available: P 1 and P3o f 8 bits each. The PI port usually provides generalpurpose bit I/O while P3 has special features associatedwith each lead. However, the special features o f P3 canalways be disabled and the ports used for simple bitinput/outputl/O. For advanced processors (like the DallasDS80C320) even the PI port has special featuresassociated with it.The features o f P3 arc always as follows (in additionto general purpose bit I/O):P3.0RXDUART Data InputP3.1TXDUART Data OutputP3.2P3.3P3.4P3.5P3.6P3.7INTO* Interrupt 0 InputINTI* Interrupt I InputTO Timer 0 InputTlTimer 1 InputWR* Bus Write (not available for bit I/O)RD* Bus Rear!
