Okay, will see how that works later on. running some psk31 at the moment.
Want it to be one and done, not having to re enter command each time. I'll comment out the line in the rules file to test how your method works.
Post later on how it worked out.

Changing your serial port permissions to 777 is the insecure way to solve this issue. Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix this:
If you run the command "ls -la /dev/ttyACM*", you should see something like:
ls -la /dev/ttyACM*
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Sep 23 12:42 /dev/ttyACM0
Notice the "dialout" in the Unix "group" field. To give access to this port, you need to add your username to the "dialout" group.
To do this, type in the command:
sudo usermod -G dialout <username>
Where you replace "<username>" with the Unix ID you're logging into the Raspberry Pi with (hopefully NOT the user "pi" account). Once you've run this command, you either need to logout and back in to see the changes or just reboot.
