Re: Virtual Audio connection between CubicSDR and Fldigi

Marty Hartwell
 

Hi

I expect the first question, is there a Virtual Audio Cable program available in the Raspberry

repositories?

Then how to set it up would more then likely somewhat like the Windows version you usually

use.

John et alia:

 Thanks for your code these many decades.
I ran BPQcode with AA4RE PBBS from ~1989-2000.
Awesome!

 I have lost interest in 1200 packet and have been running HSMM with AREDN firmware.
(ardenmesh.org)
I just cannot get excited about 1200 baud again.
I do enjoy my 30-80 Mbps 3 county intraLAN links.

 I was able to get PAT to work with Telnet (over local HSMM network) and exchanged email with a ham in the next county.
I got ARDOP configured with PAT and sent email via a 40 meter gateway in Iowa. (I am in Ohio.)
Kewel, but it was much effort and a steep learning curve to simply send text via email. :-|

 So, can I (how do I) use ARDOP (on HF) with LinBPQ?

 My LinBPQ (Raspberry Pi) is attached to my node which is linked into our 3 county HSMM network.

 I read "http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Documents/LinBPQ_RMSGateway.html";
and found no mention of configuring ARDOP.  :-|

I found Packet, Robust Packet, proprietary (PACTOR, and SCS hardware) mentioned. :-(

 All:
Hints, please, on how to attach an ARDOP modem to my LinBPQ node.

Regards, Chuck

A Google search, numerous Google searches were my first, second, third, ect . . . attempts for answers.  I really didn't find an answer.  Perhaps I don't know what to ask for.

When you don't know you don't know.

So help would be great.

Thanks, W9KJO, Walter

Re: PTT Yaesu 891

Thanks Paul!! Very good info to know. I had noticed the 2 ports in the past but only used ttyUSB0 until yesterday. Fully understanding the difference will be a big help going forward.

Re: PTT Yaesu 891

Paul Bigwood
 

The FT891 along with the latest Yaesu rigs ( FT991, FTDX101, FTDX1200, FTDX3000) have two serial ports built in. 
They are entitled ENHANCED and STANDARD and are usually consecutive with the Enhanced port being the lowest number ( COM4 v COM5 in PC speak or /dev/tty/USB0 v /dev/tty/USB1 in Linux).  The hardware uses a Silicon Labs USB dual serial port CP2015 chip that needs a special driver in Win10 PCs. 

The ENHANCED port is used for CAT control for reading and setting parameters like frequency and mode etc. and supports hardware flow control using RTS. The CAT Commands are listed in the appropriate user manual. There may be a PTT ON/OFF command depending on the radio.

The STANDARD port is used for PTT and FSK in RTTY data modes.  PTT is usually assigned  to RTS and FSK keying is assigned to DTR. The Serial data in and out are not used on this port.

John,

You were right. I used this command
./piardopc -p /dev/ttyUSB1 8515 plughw:1,0 plughw:1,0

and it worked perfect. Thanks to all for the help!

Thanks David & John. I'll play around a bit more and see if I can make progress.

Re: PTT Yaesu 891

If a port is keying the rig the chances are you could you RTS on that port for PTT. I don't know the 891 so can't say for sure, but worth trying.

John,

Tried the codes given without success. Attaching the screen shot so you can see not only the errors but what I entered as the command.
I have 2 ttyUSB, 0 & 1. Using 0 gave me no PTT at all. Using 1 locked the PTT on the rig and did not unkey until I stopped piardopc.
Before running piardopc, I stopped rigctld & made sure FLRIG was closed so nothing else would interfere with the CAT commands.

Hello Jason,

If you're trying to assert PTT via a serial port control line, I don't think you example command will work.  This works for me when working with ARIM.  PTT is connected the RTS line and it IGNORES the DTR line is not connected to anything:


http://www.trinityos.com/HAM/CentosDigitalModes/usr/local/bin/start-ardopc.sh
--
PTTCTL="/dev/USI_PTT"
ARDOPC="/usr/bin/ardopc"
ALSADEV="ARDOP"
ARDOPLOGDIR="$HOME/arim/log/"
ARDOPLOG="$HOME/arim/log/ardop-`date +%m%d%y`.log"

$ARDOPC 8515 $ALSADEV $ALSADEV -p $PTTCTL >> $ARDOPLOG

Hey John,

Is there a table that has all of these HEX codes for various radios somewhere on your site?  If not, is there a document how an enduser can determine what are the right codes?  I had to result to using an external serial port because I couldn't get the HEX code route to work.

Without indicating what technology they're using for their Industrial cards, the "different grades" is just marketing hype.    If you can find out what technology they're using, you can then make a better comparison.

This site shows you the differences between the technologies for comparison
