svxlink is a general purpose voice service system for ham radio use. This man-page describe the SvxLink server configuration for the FRN module. The FRN module is used to connect to Free Radio Network (FRN) servers.


There are a couple of configuration variables that are common to all modules. The docu‐ mentation for these can be found in the svxlink.conf(5) manual page. Here is the description of all module specific configuration variables that the SvxLink FRN module understands. ModuleFrn SERVER Free Radio Network (FRN) server hostname or ip address, you can find a list of active servers using FRN desktop application or at web page. PORT FRN server port number SERVER_BACKUP Free Radio Network (FRN) backup server hostname or ip address. When connectivity to main SERVER is not possible connection will fallback to this server. PORT_BACKUP FRN backup server port number VERSION Identify itself as a FRN client with this version. EMAIL_ADDRESS Your email address, which was used during registration. DYN_PASSWORD Password provided to you by FRN on registration. CLIENT_TYPE Type of the client: 0 - crosslink 1 - gateway 2 - pc only Read more at web page. CALLSIGN_AND_USER Your callsign and user name used during registration, for example "1234, Bob". BAND_AND_CHANNEL In case of PC only user, this is 'PC Only'. In case of a crosslink this is 'Crosslink'. In case of a gateway this is the frequancy in full Mhz and kHz sepa‐ rated by a '.' (dot), followed by the mode 'FM', 'AM' or 'DIG', followed by a space and the squelch type 'CTC', 'DSC' or 'NONE' followed by the CTC frequency or ID code.

DISABLE_RF Define to disable sending voice from FRN to RIG. Nothing will be transmitted by radio (could be switched ON by DTMF command later if needed)


To register at FRN service it is possible to use native desktop client or just register using netcat: echo 'IG:\ <ON>[CallsignAndUser]</ON>\ <EA>[EMailAddress]</EA>\ <BC>[BandAndChannel]</BC>\ <DS>[Description]</DS>\ <NN>[Country]</NN>\ <CT>[CityCityPart]</CT>' | nc -v 10025 FRN System Manager should return OK in case of successful registration.
