I can confirm that it is the BOINC app running your cpu usage sky high (100%) open the pistats app and click on the cpu % tab and watch, then change to the TOP tab and you will see boinc running at the top of the screen.

Re: WXtoIMG

Strange that you don't have Google Search on your computer. I simply entered WXtoIMG as the search criteria and the top item that popped that popped up on the search results page was 

WXtoImg Restored: software to decode APT and WEFAX signals ... 

Clicking on the link I see Downloads as one of the menu selections. I click on it.

Since the Raspberry Pi uses an ARM cpu I notice at the top of the page a Beta version 2.11.2 for running Linux on ARM processors.

For windows users, 7zip will also extract the the image file to a .img.

Then any software the end user uses to burn the image file to their sd card will work.

Ham Pi 1.0 Up and Running

John Nicholas
 

Thanks to all that helped, I now have my Ham Pi up and running.

I had trouble with both the Mac and PC recognizing the SD card. I ended up doing an erase and format on the PC and Balena Etcher flashed the image. It also verified the image. At 86% completed verification, it hung. I tried several things watching it all afternoon. Nothing would release the hang, so I loaded the SD card into the Pi and nothing.

I move back to the Mac erased the card and formatted to MS Dos Fat. Flashed the image with Balena etcher and verified it. Loaded it into the Pi and nothing.

Back to the Mac erase and flash again.

Success!

I am finished for the day and will start fresh in the morning exploring Linux and the Ham Pi collection.

I installed HamPi yesterday on a B2.  Gets so hot with no apps running that the temp alert came on.  No fan, but small aluminum heat dissipater on the processor.. Haven't taken the time to look in to what's using the cycles yet.

If you don't want BOINC running without opening an using the client, the following will stop and disable BOINC.
 
sudo systemctl stop boinc-client
sudo systemctl disable boinc-client
 
Don't want it installed on your linux installation any longer?

For Pi you have to use the latest Beta version for ARM support.  Previous versions were only for AMD and Intel

Version 2.11.2: Linux ALSA audio support, Linux running on ARM processors, bug fixes, and improved scripting (wxpdone) support..

Are you a group Admin?  Is there a file showing group etiquette?

Assuming you are not a group Admin:

I had a multiple message thread operating under the Subject Line I used.

There were several messages from other members responding to my

If you had read the message in context it was obvious what the subject and

You can check the archives, it shows the whole context of the series of

Initially I was loading them up with defaults, but at one point I tested one to see if I had to do it and they defaults were there, so that led me to believe I didn't need to do that, so I stopped.  Shortly afterwards I discovered that the eprom on the Teensy stored settings even after flashing a different arduino sketch and what I was seeing was setting already stored.  I now am setting the defaults again.  On a side note, the latest version of the firmware I am testing sets the defaults and stores them in the eprom if they do not exist.  Kudos to John for making this change.

Re: HamPi WAS: W3DJS Raspberry Pi Ham Radio Image v2.0 Released

 

OK, I loaded it up on my Mac.
Make sure you have an unformatted SD Card (delete all partitions (and MBR) if you have formatted it and the Etcher tool doesn't recognize it.
If you have the .img or .tar file, Etcher should be able to take it.  If you have the .img.xz file, gunzip will unpack it.

Run Etcher
Screen Shot 2020-07-02 at 2.45.45 PM.png
Select the .img (or .tar) file.
Screen Shot 2020-07-02 at 2.47.07 PM.png
Select the SD Card (btw, you may get what looks like an error dump, just dismiss it).
Screen Shot 2020-07-02 at 2.47.39 PM.png
Screen Shot 2020-07-02 at 2.48.02 PM.png
Select Continue, then select Flash
This should copy and validate the image.
Unmount/Eject the SD Card, put in the Pi and boot up.
