Re: APRS Digipeater, TNC Recommendations Please

Ah okay, cool.  But any recommendations for hardware TNC support?

Direwolf is a tnc software. I will do everything you need for a digipeater by itself. I don't have access to my. Onfig file right now but have had an aprs digipeater running with direwolf and an easydigi sound card interface with no other equipment other than the radio. It seems as if I had to adjust the filters to allow what I wanted to come through. Can't remember. Read in the direwolf docs about filtering. It may help.

That's my current setup, but I feel the audio interface isn't working very well.  Packets broadcasted work but the radio stays Rxing after a few seconds.

Leith, All that you need to run a digipeater using Direwolf is an audio interface. Many people use inexpensive usb devices from amazon but anything that works under ALSA will work. 

You will need to wire up the audio input and output along with a PTT line. You can follow the Direwolf manual for this.
You can save some time by using the TNC Pi Hat: http://tnc-x.com/TNCPi.htm

Direwolf is a software TNC, so no need for external TNC.

Very Best

Re: Static IP on Sretch #networking

Detrick Merz <detrick@...>
 

Tried setting it within /etc/network/interfaces ? Here's a sample, though you might need to change eth0 to something like wlan0 depending on what interface you're using.

auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
  address 192.168.1.24
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  gateway 192.168.1.1

HI David.. no it does not.. Windows Only. With that said I run LinBPQ on a Dell Server.

On an old XP PC I run WINMOR ARDOPC and now VARA remotely controlled by LinBPQ….

 

Could do same running PiLinBPQ and any windows PC capable of running your soundcard mode.

Re: ARIM v2.4b1 with support for TNC-Pi9K6 now available

Bob NW8L
 

Jouko,

What I didn't understand before is that you were connecting the Teensy
USB device port to one of the RPi USB host ports with a cable. So I tried that
configuration and discovered that /dev/ttyACM0 is available. Compiling with
#define HOSTPORT Serial and attaching to device /dev/ttyACM0 works for me
also. The other configuration using #define HOSTPORT Serial0 and device
/dev/serial0 over the Pi header works equally well. So I can have it either way!
I'm using RPi3 and the TNC-Pi9K6 board from Coastal Chipworks.

Why /dev/serial0 doesn't work for you and John is a mystery to me. I'll keep trying
to learn why.

Bob NW8L


Re: ARIM v2.4b1 with support for TNC-Pi9K6 now available

Bob NW8L
 

Jouko,

I'm not sure I know what the problem is yet, but here I see only /dev/ttyAMA0 when the Teensy program is compiled with HOSTPORT=Serial. In that case I see the same symptoms as you. With HOSTPORT=Serial1 and /dev/serial0 it works fine here, so I'm puzzled, but will keep working on it.

Bob,
Good that you found the problem. BTW I use the PI3B without PLUS.

Odd that connecting Teensy to PI3 via USB is not working for you.
In TeensyConfigARDOP.h you have to:
#define HOSTPORT Serial
#define HOSTSPEED 115200
and in arim.ini :
serial-port= /dev/ttyACM0 in my case that is the serial port which Teensy is making when connected to PI USB

That should work for you as it works for me and Jens oh6eln
Awaiting the new version to test /dev/serial0

Re: ARIM v2.4b1 with support for TNC-Pi9K6 now available

Bob NW8L
 

Jouko,

Thanks for the info. John sent me debug log output which indicates that the serial port setup is likely not the problem. There seems to be a timeout problem that isn't appearing in my RPi setup. I'll post another beta test version after some investigation and thought.

>it is running on the same PI3 but instead of using the Pi gpio header I used Teensy USB to PI USB.
>In Teensy confih *.h file HOSTPORT Serial and in arim.ini /dev/ttyAMC0

Hello,

This doesn't work for me, but it gives me an idea:

Are you using an RPi 3? If so, have you configured it in accordance with the instruction on page 11 of the TNC-Pi9K6 Assembly Instructions, to enable the serial port? There's documentation about the serial port setup on RPi here:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/uart.md

However, if pilinbpq is working with /dev/serial0 then I suppose it must be configured properly, but it's all I can think of right now.

I can't make it fail on my RPi 3 using /dev/serial0, and I wonder if anyone else out there is running gARIM or ARIM successfully on an RPi 3.

Bob NW8L


Re: ARIM v2.4b1 with support for TNC-Pi9K6 now available

Forgot to answer your questions.
No I have not tried gArim.
And I use the precompiled version on pi3b

Jouko


Re: ARIM v2.4b1 with support for TNC-Pi9K6 now available

Jouko OH5RM
 

Bob,
it is running on the same PI3 but instead of using the Pi gpio header I used Teensy USB to PI USB.
In Teensy confih *.h file HOSTPORT Serial and in arim.ini /dev/ttyAMC0

Jouko OH5RM


Re: ARIM v2.4b1 with support for TNC-Pi9K6 now available

Bob NW8L
 

Jouko,

In this case, is arim running on the PC?

I haven't heard of any trouble with gARIM, the graphical version of arim. Have you tried that yet?

Are you using the precompiled version of arim?

Bob NW8L
