Down the road in my FT-5 R2 build, it looks like I will have to hook it up to a computer. Thing is, my computer is a massive desktop that's upstairs in the office -- and the printer is downstairs in a re-purposed bedroom. (This arrangement has been good physical exercise.)
So, what should I do to connect the computer and printer?
No. 1 on my list is a tablet computer -- if that's at all possible. Has anyone here run an FT-5 from a tablet, and how did that work? Maybe I should be looking at a laptop instead?
No. 2 would involve some custom add-ons. I have a wireless network in the house, so maybe there's something I could attach to the printer that would make the connection. Some printers have a slot for an SD card which supposedly makes things work together. The R2 doesn't have an SD card slot, so that would have to be wired in somehow. If that's even possible.
I'm looking forward to learning from your experiences, and I'm open to good kluges.
