[App_rpt-users] Setting up a permanent radio-IP-radio setup

I am helping another ham to set up a back-to-back remote base setup to help
provide communication to a shaded area for a public service event.  We have
a working remote base setup with hamvoip.org distribution and now want to
hook two of these back to back.  I am helping with the Linux knowledge and
got the current remote base working.  I am looking for some pointers about
how to do this, and timing is short.  We need this running in 2 weeks.
Here's his request in his own words:

> I’ve got an event the first weekend of June that I want the linked radio
> system for, so that is kind of what is driving my “rush”.
> I would like to take the basic (final) software setup/configuration for
> ASC-North and archive it so we always have that foundation. (Doesn’t need

> I would like to learn how to modify that foundation to create a different

> other changes are necessary so an independent base can be established.

> I would like to set up two Pi’s with the USB interface and radios, so they
> automatically, and exclusively, talk to each other. One I imagine (I’ll

> (I’ll call remote) would need to want to connect to that.  This is the need
> for the start of June. I have all of the needed hardware for both stations
> (Pi, USB interface, radio). This specific request is totally unrelated to

> impossible as it would have to be on JBLM someplace.
> Once this is set up, but not necessarily immediately, I would like to know
> the specific programming for these that could be changed to add another
> unique pair, or to add another single (remote) radio as a link to the
> primary base.

Any pointers would be most appreciated.  I assume this will require
defining some sort of default call, but I am new to asterisk.
