Re: Building a Raspberry Pi DMR HotSpot

Steve McGrane <temporarilyoffline@...>
 

Links would be great!

I was just thinking about making a "UPS" for my RPi from these guys.
Can I leave these plugged in, then have the Pi plugged into the
battery and have them float?

I have a Pi that runs out of power and I can't tell what's causing it.
Would be great to have a "surge" reserve for when this happens.

Thanks,
- Steve

I have used some good batteries for a lot less you get 10 for about $15 they are BLUE sure fire and are rated at 3000maH so 8 x 3kmaH is 40000maH capacity.. I just like the Panasonic Batteries best and they are a bit more pricy.. I do use them in my High Current Draw projects.. sometimes.. Where $$$ is no issue.

They do good the cases are like $4 each.

So I can make each pack for about $19 after I make 4 I have 8 batteries left so the 5th pack costs me $4 to make.

I just make them for family.. But all you have to do is buy parts off amazon and make your own.. If you need links to these let me know... A lot cheaper they buying an assembled pack from anyone.. I also put small amounts of DeOxit on the battery terminals and the terminals in the pack before locking it together.

PS what ever you get do not get the ones with a built in current limiter on the bottom of them. Sometimes hard to tell.

Please explain "booster batteries". Are these a supplement to another USB source that would work like a UPS? Or are they just a power brick?
I've looked at Anker's offerings and find no 20000 mAh devices and nothing identified as a "booster battery".

Try PiGateCase. He has been making Pi cases for the Pi Gate systems. He can make what you need. Might have to take some measurements and send them to him. Guy is Brent Parker. W8XG.

Check thingiverse.com for potential cases.  Even if you don't find the exact case you need, you may still find some good ideas for designing your own.

I’m laying out some specs before building a Raspberry Pi HotSpot using the ZoomSpot board.  The Hot Spot will often be used when camping out where I’ll be close to the Hot Spot but the WiFi signal to the closest node might be weak and DC power is preferred for portability.  What specifications might be desireable for this build?  

I am thinking a Pi-2 with ZoomSpot board, long range WiFi dongle and battery pack to run for 8 hours.   Any idea for 3D printable Pi-2 cases to include the Pi and the accessories ?  Thanks .....  Bill k6acj.

Is the long range WiFi dongle directional, or have the capability to attach an external highly directional antenna?

I use a High Power 14dBi Directional Outdoor WiFi Antenna with one of my other money pits, model rocketry, and get 15K feet and more communications to the launch vehicles for telemetry.

I don't think PiGate supports ARDOP. In fact the only PI program I know that support Teensy ARDOP is linbpq.

You may be able to program the prebuilt binary by starting the IDE and pressing the program button on the Teensy. It usually works on Windows but I don't know about on a Mac. But it will use whatever interface options are set in the supplied TeensyConfigARDOP.h, which may not be what you need.

The code should #define ARDOP if the ARDOP project is selected in the IDE, but it could be there is something different in the Mac environment. It shouldn't do any harm to add #define ARDOP to TeensyConfig.h. But you will have to change it if you want to build the Packet software.

It requires to display the content of the app to see those folders. I also tried moving the Teensy folder location since the instructions of the TNC say to place it on the same location where Arduino was installed. I updated the preferences accordingly but had the same result. 

I was tempted to add the define statement to see if it is a matter of not finding the header file but it seems to be finding other files on the same location so I left it alone.

I suspect he is talking about the instructions in the TNCPi9K6 manual.  That includes the instructions about copying boards.txt and platform.txt and resetting the Sketchbook location.  I wonder if this has something to do with compiling on a Mac.  I don't have access to a Mac here and so I've never tested the arduino compiler on that platform.
