Raspberry Pi 3B+ Raspian OS Stretch FULL VERSION installed from NOOBs (same as Ed) and I have tried non NOOBs install of Raspian stretch FULL Version.
I am using a USB to TTL cable which I have used for many years with Ham Radio Deluxe and most recently with FLRIG, FLDIGI, FT8, and FT8Call
For audio I am using a SignaLink USB. When Ed comes back from vacation we will try and get the audio working.
For now using MUMBLE on raspberry pi and PLUMBLE on the cell. Works good.

I still have to keep FLRIG running to prevent jarecmini from shutting down when I exit Pocket RX TX. I have verified
when I close FLRIG the close Pocket RX TX jarecmini also closes preventing me from connecting again.

I am using the same Java as Ed. He doesn't have jarecmini drop out when he exits from Pocket rx tx
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ java -version
openjdk version "11.0.2-BellSoft" 2019-01-15
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.2-BellSoft+7)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 11.0.2-BellSoft+7, mixed mode)

Ed has edited the IC-746 file to fix some features not working.

That is my working status.

Hi Ken,

As stated in jAReC/jarecmini user guide, only java 8 is currently supported, even if for some users v11 may work too.
I'm not using Noobs, but direct install of Raspbian Buster Lite (no GUI) and then manually install only the required packages, including openjdk8.
