Re: My experience with the ham load by W3DJS

Dave Slotter, W3DJS
 

To remove the auto Wi-Fi hotspot, do these two steps on the Raspberry Pi console:

sudo systemctl disable autohotspot.service
In the /etc/dhcpcd.conf file remove the line that was added ("sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf"):
 
nohook wpa_supplicant
That's it as far as removing it. You can now run sudo raspi-config and select 2: Network Options, followed by N2: Wi-Fi and enter in your WiFi SSID and passphrase.

Hope this helps. (Next image I create won't have the auto-hotspot feature enabled -- it's created too much confusion.)

I don't like to make "permanent" modifications to something that I may have a use for somewhere else some time. And since I have plenty of old disk drive ribbon cables, it is easy enough to use a 40 pin cable.

The problem with that particular GPIO cable is that it requires snipping 2 RPi GPIO pins to get 26-conductor connection to seat on the pins. One is advised to purchase a 40-pin connector to replace the 26-pin, and avoid snipping the GPIO pins.

Re: Rigctl IO ERROR

Steve McGrane <temporarilyoffline@...>
 

That is very close to what I have.  Since this radio is "newer than the USB" spec, and it has an actual USB port on it, I decided that I would just use it as if it was USB.

So my command line looks like:

rigctl -m 373 -r /dev/ttyUSB0

My guess is that you are not in the "dialout" group, or that the radio isn't on /dev/ttyUSB0

Are you in the dialout group?

I had a similar problem, after reading through all the posts, going to  https://www.raspberryconnect.com/projects/65-raspberrypi-hotspot-accesspoints/157-raspberry-pi-auto-wifi-hotspot-switch-internet and following the instructions for removing the script worked for me.

Good luck...

My experience with the ham load by W3DJS

Marty Hartwell
 

Well I finally got my HDMI adapter and Pi and have it working somewhat.

I first loaded a new SD 32 GB disk with a Buster of several months ago

and booted it up to find that the default screen doesn't work, which is

something I struggled with on Stretch and got to work somehow, not right

but usable. On the new Buster, I can't remember just what I did so got it

to where I can use it but don't like it. The wifi network came up just fine and works

great.

Moving on I put Dave's image on a the other new disk I bought and booted it

up. After digging in my notes and finding the correct command to kill the hot

spot, only to find that I too can't get an active wlan0.

So now I am downloading another I hope later Buster hoping it is a newer on

that comes up with the screen working right.

A question, how do I find out what screen settings are on Dave's image and

if this new download of Buster is working the same and the other one, how to

match them up?

So you may see this question again depending on what happens with the new

load.

I have the other Dave's wifi fix file that I may work on, or just take the software

list from W3DJS and load up what I want from it.

Maybe more later.

Hi Jody

I have now gotten my adapter cable so I can use my monitor, and have booted a new SD card

with the Buster Raspbian and it works. So  next is to boot the W3DJS ham SD and kill the hotspot

and see if it will work.

You may have to kill the wpa_supplicant process before the system will

Re: W3DJS Raspberry Pi Ham Radio Image v2.0 Released

David KD4E <dcolburn@...>
 

To solve this problem I think the best place to look is the hotspot software included with this image. Since this image was created with the idea that it would function as a hotspot out in the field, that software has something to do with the wlan interface not functioning as it normally would. If you don't kill the hotspot from the terminal you cannot even get a wired lan to work even if you manually configure it. I had this issue, killed the hotspot and the wired lan port worked as you would expect.

Simple thing may be to find out what the hotspot package is called and remove it. W3DJS did mention in his comments the video/site he used to set up the hotspot software on this image. I am too lazy to go look for that message post right now....lol

Thank You,
Brian N2KGC

Ok Dave, I think I have saved a copy of your file for use when I finally
get an HDMI cable

adapter to be able to connect my monitor so I can get started.

I was just wonder if Jody had finally gotten his to connect.

I know I had a problem on my Pi 2B with both Jessie and Stretch to get
connected to Wifi

and had to take it to the garage to be able to connect with a Lan cable
to get the software

updated to be able to connect. I had hoped the new Buster had gotten
around that so maybe

yes maybe no I will see. I have both the special image produced by W3DJS
and the stock

Raspian Stretch loaded on separate 32 GB disks to work with.
