There  are example files /usr/src/astsrc/configs/pciradio. The files in this directory need to be placed in
/etc/asterisk with the exception of zaptel.conf which goes in the /etc directory.

These 4 files will get channel 1 working in carrier squelch mode. Once you have that working then you can try turning on
ctcss encode and decode as well as changing the tone frequencies by editing zaptel.conf. Just a side note: The radio's
CTCSS decoder may be better performer than the MX-828 chip used on the pciradio card.

Once all that is working, then you can increase the channel count and configure other channels. Re-read the zaptel.conf,
and zapata.conf and extensions.conf files.
