A bit more firmware work recently, nothing too exciting mostly additions to CLI functionality.

- dtmf simulator: allows the simulation of dtmf tones being sent. syntax: dtmf<space>a<space>b<space>c<space>d<space>e<cr>. where a c b d e etc are individual numbers (1 to 16) representing a 4 x 4 keypad. These are fed straight into the dtmf processor as though they were received by the radio etc

- output channel direct drive: allows one of the output channels (1 to 4) to be 'turned on' for a 1s period. syntax: out<space>x<cr> where x is 1 to 4

- gps status: dumps current gps parameters. syntax gps<cr>

- power monitor status: lists values from power monitor board/ "Smart Disconnect". syntax pwr<cr>

- overall system status: dump of all system parameters and values. syntax ??<cr>

Also added a short beep upon receipt of any valid DTMF value.

Example terminal screen grab from cli

Still a few bugs to iron out....
