Funny how this thread began and has branched into to something entirely different, "New member Thanks for the add.  I am interested in getting a pi for wsjt-x and fldifli. I am disabled and low income. Any help is appreciated.

Hello Randy,

Welcome, glad you are here. I am fairly new to the Raspberry Pi myself and have learned a great deal from following KM4ACK on Youtube. Jason has been a huge help to me and he although he might not have touched on wsjt-x he certainly has done a lot with flrig, fldigi, JS8, Winlink etc.

Good luck

Re: How to run Flrig, Fldigi & JS8Call @ the same time?

The key is to use the Network settings. Have only one to be the on talking to the hardware directly. I don’t use JT8Call but I have use the other 2 at the same time. Flrig was talking to the radio and fldigi talks to flrig. I did have a 3rd app working, Rumlog. All was in a Mac but the setup should be the same.

John,

Thank you for your response. To clarify, I do want to run these programs simultaneously. I have all 3 apps working but not simultaneously.

Re: How to run Flrig, Fldigi & JS8Call @ the same time?

 

By "at the same time" do you mean simultaneously or do you mean have all of the programs available on the same Pi?  To run them all simultaneously on a single transceiver would require managing the different frequencies and modes, transmitter keying, etc.

Distributing the sound received or sent to the various programs simultaneously can possibly be achieved using Plus Audio on the Pi, with some fancy configuration.

If you are looking for stretch with these programs pre-installed, but still requiring configuration, you could start with the beta images at http://images.nwdigitalradio.com/downloads (current_beta.zip is an alias to the most recent beta, currently number 13).  The image is made to support the DRAWS™ HAT for the Raspberry Pi, but the programs should work with a USB soundcard (such as one built into a transceiver). Setup information is at https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki/DRAWS%3A-Image-getting-started 

Example pulse audio setup files are at https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/split-channels

Hello John,

I can listen to your recording and hear something like a data burst but it would be helpful if we could hear the whole thing.  For example, it would be helpful to hear you send an APRS beacon and then this data burst at the end.  From there, we could understand what might be happening.

Re: Odd beep tone

If the radio you are using is a Baofeng model, take a look at the menu STE setting.  The default is ON.  However, this causes the transmitter to remain keyed for a moment after the radio is unkeyed.  I think that this may have to do with IDing in some countries, but I don't know for sure.  Anyway for packet use STE should be set to OFF.

Re: broken usb port

This is a issue with the UBS ports on the PI. The Flightaware dongle has a powes light. If the  dongle is jiggled a bit the power light goes out and I lose connectivity to the Flightaware server. It will do this on all 4 Usb ports.

Since a physical movement flickers an LED, you have a mechanical problem.  Sounds like corrosion on the USB connectors or a cold solder joint.  I would recommend to replace the RPI or if you feel adventurous, try reflowing your Raspberry Pi with a heat gun.  I've done this before on a Playstation 3 and it worked but that's a lot more expensive than an $35 Raspberry PI

Re: Odd beep tone

 

There is a facility to have an unkey delay.  If the transmitter stays keyed after the packet is over, you’d here one of the two modem tones.
Could that be it?

I don't have anything around with the same power plug.
And, yes, I do backups. I stated that I had re flashed the card several times.

The Pi doesn't have a minoror.

I would guess it is 4 or 5 years old, not sure.
Power supply MO52240E111 made in China as old as the Pi.5.25v @ 2400ma

Flashed it a couple times with the Pi image.
I believe th OS is Rspberian

Hello Randy,

You're going to have to give us a lot more details than "acting flaky" if we're going to be able help you.

  - Screen capture or take a smartphone picture of the screen showing specific errors
  - Tell us which Raspberry Pi model you have (and age of it)
  - What are the power supply specs (and age)
  - what make and size of your SD card (and how long in use)
  - What OS and version do you have on the SD card
  - What environment does the Rpi run in (does it get cooling, is it outside in a very hot enclosure, etc)

For any Rpi that was running well for a long time and now has issues, I would first look at the SD card.  Then look at the power supply.  Are are more ideas as well:
