Try setting the radio frequency manually and leaving off the freq? bit. The
gateway interface doesn’t support sending commands to the radio.

Re: pi9k6 Winlink Pat ARDOP

 

The PI96K is connected to linbpq, correct?  If so, shouldn't you be using the telnet transport in PAT to talk to linbpq, not the PAT ARDOP transport?

I plan on publish my steps soon... I just need to resolve this one issue... Here is were I am at now...


What I want to do is;
 
email <-> HF RADIO <-> WINLINK System
 
I want to eliminated the internet on my side. 
 
I tried following the instructions for using LinBPQ as a Gateway for PAT (http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Documents/PATSuppport.html), but fail to get a connection due to an error from PAT: "2019/04/02 06:47:15 ARDOP TNC initialization failed: dial tcp: lookup CMSTelnet$11$K6FVC@....21: no such host:"
 
My PAT ARDOP Config;
  "ardop": {
   "addr": "CMSTelnet$11$K6FVC@....64:8772",
    "arq_bandwidth":{ 
      "Forced": false,
      "Max": 500
    },
    "rig": "ft847",
    "ptt_ctrl": false,
    "beacon_interval": 0,
    "cwid_enabled": true
  },
 
 
I think I am missing a definition in the bpq32.conf. Here is my telnet section:
PORT
 ID=Telnet Server
 DRIVER=Telnet
 CONFIG
    LOGGING=1
    DisconnectOnClose=0     ;  1 = closes window when you bye

Not sure on your question, but would love to see how you set up bpq, ARDOP, and ARIM.


Current A/D converters being used?

Dave Cole <dave@...>
 

Hi,

I am working on a touch scren rotor controller project, what is the current crop of A/D converters being used?

I have been looking at a 3008, but I read it is old and there are better ones available...

pi9k6 Winlink Pat ARDOP

Fred Cunha - K6FVC
 

I have a pi9k6 working with Pi linbpq ARDOP and ARIM.  I would like to use PAT Winlink to do email with pi9k6 over ARDOP. 

Anyone aware of plans to add support a serial connection for ARDOP with PAT?

Thanks!


Re: PI usage

Ray Wells
 

I'm sure there are many Pi users who will attest to them being able to run 24/7 which makes me (and probably others) wonder why you didn't have success at the EOC.

One of my RPi's (a 1B) is in a weatherproof box at the base of the ADS-B collinear, about 4m in the air. I run Cat5 and 12V to the box, and use a Murata 5V 3 terminal smps to power it. After 310 days uptime I had to power it down to replace the DTV dongle that finally died after a nearby lightning strike a few weeks earlier. It's been up 150 days since then.

A second Pi (another 1B) runs direwolf and a four port FTDI USB/RS232 adaptor. It runs from a 5v linear regulator (set to 5.15V) and current uptime is 99 days. In an earlier installation in which supply voltage was 4.95V, reliability was terrible.

Re: PI usage

 

My local group is using the Raspberry PI in 24/7 use.   They work ok with one caveat.  We went with a gel-cel battery and diode switch from a 13.8v power supply so when the power supply glitches the battery holds up the PI.  Then we trickle charge the gel-gel from the main supply.  That keeps the SDCARD from crapping out.    We have several that are in dog-house class structures in central North Carolina.  The Raspberry PIs are under cover but exposed to the humidity and heat. In those applications we’ve replaced the Raspberry PI sand SDcards only when the OS has changed from Wheezy to Jessie, and from Jessie to Stretch.

Detrick Merz <detrick@...>
 

Here's how I've used them:

1) A few of them around the house, attached to audio amps and speakers, running Squeezelite and providing multi-zone whole house audio
2) Pi 3 (I think) running Direwolf acting as a TNC and APRS tracker for VHF roving
3) Pi ZeroW acting as an access point, NTP server (USB GPS for time) and logging server for Field Day (Android clients running HamLog connect to it). Runs more than 24 hours on a cell phone boost pack.
4) Pi 3 with a USB GPSr and USB soundcard running WSJT-X and FLDIGI for battery powered portable digital ops (Android tablet w/VNC client for the display)
5) File and DNS server w/attached external hard drive
6) Pi ZeroW driving RGB LED strips as a "sunrise" lamp (2/3 done)

Re: PI usage

 

Some of the projects I use Raspberry Pi's for:

1 - Dual mode 220 mhz  D-STAR/Analog FM repeater using a Bridgecom Repeater and UDRC
1 - Dual mode 2-meter  D-STAR/Fusion Digital repeater using a Yaesu DR-1X Repeater and UDRC  / ircddb gateway (for all 3 repeaters)
1 - Tri-mode 70-cm D-STAR/Analog FM/Fusion Digital repeater using a Yaesu DR-1X Repeater and UDRC  
1 - Dedicated chrony (NTP) timeserver for the home LAN using PPS on a Adafruit Ultimate GPS HAT
2 - Digital Radio Amateur Work Stations (DRAWS™) for APRS, Packet, Fldigi, WSJT-X, JS8CALL, and more (each with their own chrony NTP server).
1 - Dedicated Asterisk PBX (with trunks from Vitelity and connectivity to local Emcomm PBX)

Various services including ambeserver, OpenVPN clients for Bringing Net44 and IPV6 to your Ham Radio Station, webservers and monitoring.

Several Pi's here at N9PUZ...

  1. Pi Zero which is part of a Zumspot hot spot for DMR access
  2. Pi 3 attached to a monitor for use as a regular Linux desktop primarily for web access to monitor various home gadgets that have web interfaces.
  3. Pi 3 for some monitoring projects. So far just sump pump level with a simple float switch. Pump run-time and furnace run time planned for the future.
  4. Pi destined to use DireWolf as a TNC.

Re: PI usage

Wow ... VERY interesting projects! 

The external drive and garage temperature systems - any notes or suggestions for further info?


Re: PI usage

John Mathieson
 

I have 5 of them up and running.  One is used as file server with an external 40 gig hard drive.  Another is mounted in my garage and with a collinear array for ADS-B work.  A third is my APRS I gate using YAAC and Coastal Chip  Works TNC Pi. I also have a touch screen attached for the mapping display.  The Fourth is an IOT device with a Pi Zero reporting the temperature in my garage to Adafruit IO.  The fifth is used as Dstar/DMR hotspot with DVmega Hat.

Thanks

Passing along!

 

FYI, the FCC has started a 30 day comment period on new RM-11831, a petition to amend US amateur radio rules to permit only those digital modes that can be decoded with free, open-source software.

Re: PI usage

 

Packet Radio / APRS / Emergency Communications:

The RPi can be used as a lower cost, higher performance, and more flexible replacement for the traditional Terminal Node Controller (TNC) from the 1980's.   No special hardware is needed,   The modem function is performed with digital signal processing, outperforming all of the specialized hardware based designs.

With free open source software, it can be used a GPS Tracker, digital repeater (digipeater), and APRS Internet Gateway (IGate), 

It can also be used as a virtual TNC for other applications such as APRSIS32, UI-View32, Xastir, APRS-TW, YAAC, UISS, Linux AX25, SARTrack, Winlink Express (formerly known as RMS Express, formerly known as Winlink 2000 or WL2K), BPQ32, Outpost PM, and many others.
