Hello I have just downloaded the wheezy-raspbian.zip using my Window 7 machine. I unzipped it and copied it to my SD 4 GB card using Win32DiskImager. I was surprise to see the Raspberry Pi load up! My first try! My monitor had a DVI connector, so I had to purchase a DVI to HMDI adapter. I also have connected to my large flat Samsung TV. This is were I would like to keep it. I now want to purchase a WIFI dongle and a wireless keyboard and mouse. I would like advise as to which make and model of dongle, keyboard and mouse that will work with the Raspberry. Is there a list of compatible hardware anywhere?

Re: Raspbian Pices R3

Thanks for the advice.  It works FB on Ubuntu on a portable.  I’ll check the firmware again but I believe it is current.  I don’t like to sound negative but I have not had good luck downloading rpi-update from the webpage.  I found it in other releases so it isn’t a problem.  I tried the 08-16 wheezy and it does not reset the USB port but my RF keyboard still is unusable due to repeat keying.

The current release 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian is a good basis but the latest firmware update is essetial. If you have not run "rpi-update" you will need to. This utility updates the firmware and related files. If you do not have the utility installed you can get instructions from https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update. The latest firmware seems to cure almost all my USB problems. I can now get all my sound devices, powered hubs and keyboards working without errors (except when RF gets into the USB cables). You still need to do the apt-get udate and apt-get upgrade afterwards to make sure your software is up to date.

Re: Database of RPi Ham Radio Applications

Jerry,

I went ahead right after I sent the email and started the database in the database area of the Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO Group:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO/database

Any member of the group can edit or add new records to the database.  I encourage all members to add Ham Radio application as they try them, whether they are successful or not.

All,

I'm new to the group, but I would like to suggest beginning a database of ham radio applications for the Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO Group. The database could contain information on various applications that have successfully or unsuccessfully been ported to or installed on the Raspberry Pi platform.

Application - Name of the application
Type - A descriptor of the application (Satellite, RTTY, JT65, etc.)
Website - URL of the application
OS - Flavor of OS & Version (Debian Wheezy, Android 4.0, Arch 13-06-2012)
RPi - Version of board (B-256, B-512, C-1G, etc)
Successful - Yes, No (Successfulness of installation)
Members - Members having installed application
Additional Instructions - URL for RPi installation instructions
General Information - General information

Would the group members find this information useful?

Amateur radio software via synaptic package manager etc.

Richard Ferryman
 

I am running Raspbian with the latest firmware and software updates as they come along. I have WSPR 3.0.1 compiled and running reliably with full CAT control and internet access.

I have tried installing several applications using synaptic package manager (if you don't have it get it "sudo apt-get install synaptic"). The amateur radio section of the package list is quite large and I have tried several of them:-

gpredict works very well.

fldigi works but cpu is maxed out on all modes except wefax. I can't get good decodes of PSK31 with fldigi using portaudio although they are clearly on the waterfall but decodes work and CPU load seems lower if I install pulseaudio to handle the USB sound card. Cat control via hamlib works fine.

WSJT as installed by synaptic or apt-get does not work. I have download the code as recommended by Joe K1JT but get a load of errors during make and it does not run. This may be due to me using gfortran instead of G95 which I don't have.

I have installed some other psk31 and QRSS packages such as glfer, gmfsk, gpsk31 and phaseshift but these mostly expect a device at /dev/dsp which is not set up on the Raspberry Pi.

It seems that not all amateur radio software that uses the sound device for input handle audio the same way. Some require portaudio, alsa, labjack, or OSS and this becomes a minefield with which I am not very experienced! It is also almost essential to alter /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf to allow the external USB sound device to be grabbed first. I have yet to find any USB sound card that works perfectly although cheap devices using the CM119 chip seem to be the most reliable.

One lesson that I have learned is not to use USB->RS-232 adapters. I tried most variants and all were unreliable (although this has improved with the latest RPi firmware). I finally used the UART /dev/ttyAMA0 which comes out as 3.3V logic levels on the GPIO connector. This is utterly reliable for CAT control or connected to a TNC or GPS via a MAX3232 chip interface.

There is a lot of other stuff in the repositories and elsewhere but I have tended to look mostly at low speed data modes using sound input.

I'm not sure what is getting most of my attention these days - the raspberry pi or the new puppy but the XYL says it is not her!

Seems that for those of us in the USA, Newark/Element14 is the best choice. I ordered mine on August 5th, and got it the following week. I've been running a tx igate with it, plus a TNC-X, for a couple of weeks now, and quite happy with it.

Anyway, I envision first trying to set it up to run jnos on linux. Currently, I use Ubuntu 12.04. So far, it appears this forum has some really good experience on board and should serve as a valuable resource. 73 ~ Ken
