I’ll be porting my Cumulus install over to Raspian in the near future.
Which all means a computer of some kind to take in
USB data from the console and push it to the correct places.
One side feature of the wx software I use and push
to the IRLP node (acting as a web page server) is that the raw
data file it part of what is sent. Using a Python script, I
convert that data to spoken, store that and can transmit the
spoken via the node, on command.
One more small note, turn OFF the pushing of data
from the Davis console to the Davis server; it's next to useless
and it's one less item on your network (have to use the web
interface once it's connected to a computer).
ALL: Please remember to add your name AND call as
a signature; it's proper netiquette here. Thank you!
73 es Merry Christmas,

I’m running a D710 connected to a windows pc. On the pc I run
cumulus for my Davis Vantage Pro II. I am also running APRSIS32
which gets the weather data from Cumulus.
I don't see the need to put the radio in
Echolink Sysop mode. I have run several different
external TNCs on my TM-V71A and only the data band keys
while leaving the other side of the radio to do voice
communication. That's the handy thing about these radios,
they can run packet and voice at (mostly) the same time.
I've setup a Raspberry Pi Zero as a fill-in digipeater
with a handheld using the soundcard/Direwolf method. It
works great. I used a cheap Sabrent sound card and one of
the Pi GPIO pins for the PTT since Direwolf allows keying
via GPIO. There's no reason you can't build a similar
setup with the Kenwood by making your own DIN cable to
plug into the back of the radio. Then if you can figure
out how to get your weather data into a text file Direwolf
will understand, you're set. $10 Pi computer, $10
