Re: PI TNC

 

Thomas don't worry about the spelling, you're communicating fine.

Yes, you can use the TNC Pi with several packages.  There is some documentation with the TNC Pi on how to attach various programs.

I can access it via PuTTY from a linux laptop. I commented out a line in the config.txt file and the composite works.

Thanks for all the great suggestions.

You can use XRDP http://www.xrdp.org/
< http://elinux.org/RPi_XRDP_Server >
< http://www.humans-enabled.com/2013/02/how-to-install-xrdp-on-ubuntu-1204.html
< http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/05/connect-to-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin-via-windows-remote-desktop/
Any thing that will help someone with Ubuntu or any Debian based Distro will help you with the Raspberry Pi using most Linux based Distros. Not aware of a Free-BSD based Distro on the Raspberry Pi yet.

XRDP uses less resources then VNC and I can attest that it works.
I use it on my Ubuntu 12.04 system and I access it via Remote Desktop Connection via Windows 7.
Hope this helps.

Easiest if you are on an internal network and do not need a graphical interface is to use SSH.


Most recent Raspberry Pi distributions have SSH enabled by default. Rerun raspi-config if necessary to turn it on ( it is under advanced options) you may need to run it with sudo.) 


If your computer is a Mac or running Linux just ssh from the command line e.g. User_name_on the_raspberry@raspbbery_pi_ip_address 


If you are using Windows you will have to use Putty or Kitty to connect with ssh to the Pi (the latter is an improved version of Putty, stays alive on a reboot of the Pi waiting for a reconnect which I find useful). Find either with Google.


If you want to see a graphical session you can either use VNC or export an xsession, (To windows you would need Xming running). With an exported xsession you should just be able to start a graphical programme )with xming running) by invoking the programme from a command line. Alternatively You will need to set up VNC on the Pi and have a VNC viewer on your remote computer, E.g. TightVNC or RealVNC. There are various configurations files that have to be set for this. You will need to read the man pages or google it.

Or go to a Salvation Army store, thrift store, etc and get aaa VCR then connect the Pi to the VCR

I recommend mobiterm on your PC.  When configured for SSH and XWindows, you will see what you see with VNC without the overhead and slow down.  Your computer runs the Xserver so you don't need to send every pixel over.  Unless you jump through hoops, your VNC will show a new session window, not what the local console sees.  Ask and some people are determined you have to have nothing but VNC others a&e determined you should never have graphics.  Mobiterm works in all situations.

Re: View a headless RPi running DVAP + ircDDB + VNC

OK Calvin-

This is very basic Computer Administration 101. We have to assume a few things. I will try to go step by step. Like you have a Windows computer, Internet and a Raspberry Pi model B.

1. Connect Raspberry Pi via ether-net cable to your router with an Internet connection
2. Connect at least 1 other Windows computer to the same router.
3. Boot all 3 if not all ready running.
4. On the Windows machine- downloaqd via your browser "PuTTY". It's a free program. Google it.
5. Install PuTTY on your desktop. (It can be seen on the desktop with all the other programs)
6. Using your browser connect to your router- See the router manual or call router tech support
    example:  http://168.192.1.1     (in my special case 10.0.0.1)
                   login  admin
                   password  password  (NETGEAR defaults)
7. Go to LAN CONNECTIONS / ATTACHED DEVICES and see if the RASPBERRY PI- IP address is listed..
    example:

Wired Devices
# IP Address Device Name MAC Address
110.0.0.36CORE50:E5:49:3B:50:2B
210.0.0.4SERVER00:22:68:86:B5:6D
310.0.0.10RASPBERRYPIB8:27:EB:A7:E2:FF
 
8. Write down the the IP address for the RASPBERRY PI
9. Now run PuTTY and select SSH and enter the IP address in the box that says Host Name or IP address.
10. The click on OPEN
11. A new window will open and say LOGIN AS:
12 Type PI and your password (default "raspberry")
13. After an opening "banner" you will get the Linux test prompt (pi@raspberrypi ~ $_)
14 from there you can type any and all commands etc...
BUT THAT DOES NOT GET YOU A GUI (graphical user Interface) of your PI on the windoze machine.
IF that's what you want continue:
15. You need to load a remote connection program to create a GUI on the Windoze machine.
16: On the PI type the following: : "sudo apt-get install xrdp"  (say "y" if necessary)
17. Once you get the command line back type "sudo shutdown -r now".
18. Now close the PuTTY window as it will disconnect during the reboot (that's the -r in the last command)
19. - Another Assumption- you are running Windows 7.. I'm not sure on earlier versions like XP other than you must have service pack3 installed. I will take it step by step for Windoze 7..Google how to do it on other versions of windows (or linux or mac or solaris)
20. Windoze 7- Click on the Start Button (lower left corner of screen)
21. Click on ALL PROGRAMS
22. Click on ACCESSORIES
23. Click on REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION.
24. When the box opens enter the IP address of the RASPBERRY PI and click CONNECT
25. Enter the RASPBERRY PI User name- "pi" and Password "raspberry"
26. Whirr-click you have the RASPBERRY PI on your Windows computer  screen
27. the important item to know-use is the top center bar. That maximizes, hides or exits remote connection screen. so you can go back and forth betweenthe PI and the WINDOZE machine.
28. Now as you advance there are ways you can do all of this with just a laptop and a crossover ethernet cable. and even a wireless Ethernet dongle and a smart phone/tablet with a correct remote connection app.

I hope this encourages you to experiment. Toss that tube TV. I picked up a 16" SEPTRE E165BV TV with 5 various inputs and HD digital TV for $79.00 at walmart. Walmart online now has a 19" SEPTRE E195BV for $99. now.. Mine uses a wall wart and the output of the wall wart is 12 VDC perfect for ham radio applications.

You could run the  composite  output of the pi into a  channel 3 or 4  modulator ads the Commodore 64 and Apple 2 Es did  did years ago .

 

You cud  go into your 30 year old TV and  make your   composite video  connection . ..connect  right after the AM video detector  diode..

Hi Calvin
   No, you dont have modify anything on your R-Pi, simply install a VNC viewer on your pc.

There should be a document on the R-PI desktop explaining exactly how to do it.

Re: QRSS on the Pi?

Stephen Farthing <squirrox@...>
 

Hi Paul,

I guess you are looking at the G0UPL Arduino shield, which I believe is a transmitter, I used to do kits with G0UPL for QRSS beacons but no longer do so. I think he did this shield to promote a book for the ARRL which he part wrote. 

Making a QRSS transmitter driven by an Arduino is quite easy. However a receiver is a different matter. The biggest problem with QRSS is the lack of "grabber" stations. A "grabber" station is a high stability receiver connected to a computer running some software, such as Argo, which recovers the QRSS signal from the AF output from the receiver. This is then displayed on the screen. The screen image is periodically uploaded to the internet. This can then be viewed by the operator of the QRSS transmitter to see how far his signals have got. It is a lot of fun. 

What I want to do is to take the PC out of the equation and replace it with a Pi and a 3.2 inch touch screen. Do ing the screen side of things is easy using one of these 


and some logic or the Guzunty FPGA board. 

So all I need is to find a QRSS decoder that run's on the Pi.
