Bob

How did you start the parameters program. I downloaded and it’s unzipped in home/Pi directory. After that it said something about Chmod. There was nothing in the info as to how to get to that point.

For Sale.

I have a Coastal Chipworks TNC Pi2 Stacked on top of a Rpi 2 for sale. I was running it as a APRS Igate using Xaster. So now I am not using it anymore so I am going to sale it. I am asking $55 for the pair. Price includes shipping to continental US. If you are interested you can contact me here or at kb4qnr@.... 73

My TNC-PI 96k just arrived in the mail.  Waiting for the electronic store to open on Tuesday. Family Day Holiday. I need to get some very small needle noise to remove the blue JP 1. I had a local ham put it together as my eyes and arthritis fingers don’t do what they use to do. He left it on the 9600 b

I too want to use it for Pat/Winlink.

I tried it to see what it was like.
Yep, Slow as molasses, lack of drivers, so ethernet works, but built in wifi and bluetooth are not functional.
It also runs windows x86 apps...

John,

As you know, you need a separate sound card for the RPi. I am using the FE-PI AUDIO Z V2 from https://fe-pi.com/products/fe-pi-audio-z-v2 which is about $15.00 shipped. It is a RPi hat, and support for the card is already in the RPi kernel. I am using it with direwolf to run an APRS digi and Igate with a cheap Baofeng. You have to use vox for keying, same as Signalink. A very simple and inexpensive solution. Check out my Igate at https://aprs.fi/#!call=a%2FW4OA-10&others=1&timerange=21600&tail=3600

Mitch W4OA
ps I have no affiliation with fe-pi other than as a customer.


Re: Replacing Signalink with TNC-Pi2

David Ranch <dranch@...>
 

Hello John,

Most multi-mode digital modem programs that use a sound card either require dedicated access to that hardware (sound card) or they go through an audio "service" to share that sound card.  In the Linux world, dedicated access is provided by ALSA and shared access is done either through PortAudio (old) or PulseAudio (new).  On the flip side, devices like a TNC-Pi have a fixed purpose and ONLY does 1200bps AFSK.  Yes, there is the new TNC-Pi9k6 that can do 1200, 2400, and 9600bps packet modes or even ARDOP with an alternative firmware.  None of these options are perfect and you need to carefully make choices.  Maybe I'm missing your question here so let me turn this question around on you to demonstrate a different point:

   - You're using your digital system with an FM radio on some 2m frequency and typically speaking, one VHF frequency is typically used for a specific mode.  For example, 144.390 is typically only for the 1200bps AFSK mode.  You can either use a TNC-Pi or your Signalink with say Direwolf to support that mode.  Yes, you could then try using Fldigi for running say Olivia on this specific FM frequency but that really isn't appropriate.  The more appropriate solution would be to connect the FM radio up with the TNC-Pi and continue running 1200bps AFSK on 144.390 and then connect up a second soundcard (your Signalink) to a different radio, say one that supports SSB on HF, and run Olivia on a different frequency.

Greetings all,

While I'm not new to the RPi arena, I am new to using it in a ham environment.

I've been playing around with fldigi using a Signalink between the RPi and the radio (Yaesu 8900R). Works great as expected.  I have built a Coastal Chipworks TNC-Pi2 that I would like to insert into the project, eventually to use with some linux flavor of WL2K.  However, in the mean time, I'm curious to find a way to remove the Signalink from the project altogether and still retain the ability to use fldigi. 

Are there any settings in fldigi which will enable this ability?  Something to invoke some kind of pass-through? Any one done this before? Or am I trying to make orange juice with a handful of apples?

Thanks.

I bet nobody will bring ads and bloat to the RPi platform like MS can!  I gave up on windows at version 8.

Just remember that modern Windows/10 executables are often not “x86/x64/whatever” machine code programs. Almost all the current compilers produce what is called the “common language runtime” or CLR which is a pseudo machine code.

When the code is executed the CLR interprets it and executes it on the underlying platform. So there is no need for X86 emulation. Only the core Windows stuff needs re-compiling for ARM…

This appears to be a full Win10 running native on arm64 but with x86 emulation so it can run existing x86 programs. I'm installing at the moment and will report back if I get it working.
