Dire Wolf -> digirig -> Baofeng UV5R

Hi -

I built a Digipeater on a Raspberry Pi-0 with Dire Wolf and need to connect it to a Baofeng UV5R. Would a digirig be a plug and play solution with the proper cable? I have tried USB sound cards, etc., but they were not able to handle the keying of the radio. As soon as I plugged in a cable the radio would transmit and not stop until the plug was removed from the jack. I’m looking for a solution.

Many thanks and 73,
Chris W4LUC

Yes, Digirig is known to work with UV5R and with Direwolf.
Make sure you set PTT method to RTS.

Hi Denis,

Thank you for the information. I will order one. As I already have a Baofeng programming cable, is there a way to order the single cable?


Yes, follow up your order with a email and I’ll issue a partial refund.
