Compile SD-PEX15022 (MCS9922) drivers for Debian

Recently I purchased a Syba SD-PEX15022 (MCS9922) PCI-e to Serial card for Amateur Radio radio control. Well the drivers that came on the CDRom would not compile and got heaps of errors, any ways after 30 mins or so of trolling the Internet for more update drivers which I found here and they compiled under the 3.0.0-1 kernel with no problems.

In case the drivers go a miss from the above ASIX link you can grab them from here:
MCS99xx_NoCascade_Linux_driver_v1.0.0.1

UPDATE 2011-12-28
As of the release of the 3.1 Kernel this card now works out the box, so no need to compile the drivers for it if running kernel 3.1 onwards.

Doing ‘lspci -v‘ shows – note the ‘Kernel driver in use:‘. Also the port assignment has change from ‘/dev/ttyF0‘ etc, back to ‘/dev/ttyS0‘ etc.

ARISSat-1 Transponder file for GPredict

This is the transponder file I made up for GPredict as it not have one for the ARISSat-1 satellite.

Just copy and pasted the below info into a text file and save it to ~/.config/Gpredict/trsp/37772.trsp

[Mode V Digitalker (Voices Messages and Telemetry)]
DOWN_LOW=145950000
MODE=FM

[Mode V Imaging (Robot 36 SSTV from onboard cameras)]
DOWN_LOW=145950000
MODE=SSTV in FM carrier

[Mode V Telemetry (1000 baud (400 baud backup))]
DOWN_LOW=145920000
MODE=BPSK 1000 bps

[Mode U/V (B) Linear Transponder]
UP_LOW=435742000
UP_HIGH=435758000
DOWN_LOW=145922000
DOWN_HIGH=145938000
INVERT=true

[Mode V TLM Beacon (CW-2, BPSK-1000)]
DOWN_LOW=145919000
MODE=CW

[Mode V TLM Beacon (CW-1, BPSK-400)]
DOWN_LOW=145939000
MODE=CW

Now sit back and enjoy listening and transmitting to the ARISSat-1 :-)
