"well, the only interface necessary with a windows machine is a usb cable"
Is this a slam against linux machines? Why mention a windows machine in a linux discussion group?

Randy, are you able to drive and move around outside your apartment? Michael's suggestion about finding and joining a local club might be valid for you if members of that club are to help you with the raspberry pi and specific radios. I presume you have a computer other than a raspberry pi since you are able to access the forum. Have you tried installing ham application programs on your computer?

I don't understand why you are asking for help with something you don't possess. Maybe you can explain.

Michael has some good ideas for obtaining low cost, working equipment, not new but that still works. If you can shop at the Goodwill store, you don't to buy at the price shown on the tag. You can try bartering for a lower price.

I think the internal command structure for the FT-817ND and FT-897R is different. Not sure about the interface cable. I know the interface cable for the 817 is compatible with the FT-857D.

Randy, unless you have more than one device on your home network a router is not required. Your second obstacle has no connection with running digital modes. What are you actually asking?

Pat,
Unlike Windows, Linux doesn't care. As others have suggested you should give the new RPi a different hostname so you don't confuse between the 2 RPi's.

"Do I have to edit anything in the config files besides changing the radio type in the programs."
Pat, are you referring to the operating system or to an application program running on the operating system?

"The static IP is actually set in the router"  While that is certainly one way to do it, I much prefer to just set  the static address on the pi itself. Ever had a router lose its MAC to I/P table? Then nothing works until that is fixed. 

Just don't tell people there is only one way to set a static address.

The static IP is actually set in the router.  It links a particular mac address to a particular IP.

Another good source for Raspberry Pi and Ham radio is Jason's products.  He can take you from a bare board to a working system with lots of usable applications in a copy and paste manner.  Jason and Julian collaborate on some stuff.

Jason's stuff is mostly located on YouTube under KM4ACK and he has a blog and a GitHub site to help.  Great guy.  I have worked on helping him debug some scripts in the past and when have you been able to get a developer call you at home to help?

I just installed the img from a torrent on my pi 4. I lost audio to my speaker from 3.5 jack.  Has anyone experienced this and have a fix?  Thanks


Not a real newbie but a question

Marty Hartwell
 

Hi

As subject says a question or two.

I have a new Pi 4 B+ 4 GB and the question is this:

I have unetbootin for linux and have used it to put the image onto

a 32GB SD card first with the W3DJS image for Ham radio, which

I couldn't get working. I also have the Raspbian Buster image

downloaded.

So my question is this finally: After the program unetbootin or

dd finishes its job show I have instead the one partition FAT32,

two partitions, named boot and root, or does that get created

after the first power up on the pi and the splash screen comes

up on the monitor?


It seems I remember it takes a while to boot up the first time.

I have done this a couple of times and nothing seems to happen.

Randy,

Take a look at Julian OH8STN’s blog for some ideas using similar equipment & modes as you mention. May save you some time & money.

Re: Making a pi4 image for a different pi4 and radio

Pat ....
 

So to change the host name,  I open up a terminal and type sudo raspi-config?  My IP address is not static,  because I've never set my ip address static. I just let it get assigned. How do I set a static ip address? 


Re: Making a pi4 image for a different pi4 and radio

Max
 

As well as changing the host name I also change the static address of the pi. Since most of my pi's are headless, it just makes things easier in general for me.

There are only two things I change aside from any radio specific settings.  First is the hostname of the device (sudo raspi-config) since I have multiple Pis on my home network.  The other thing I don't include in my "golden image" is hotspot installation.  I broke it once by changing the hostname of the device after it was installed which seemed to cause weird issues so now I just install that after a permanent hostname is assigned.

Okay, will give a try.
Thank you!


Re: Making a pi4 image for a different pi4 and radio

 

You will probably need to change some settings for the new system but it shouldn't be a general problem. 

You should provide more details eg  what radios and applications?

Generally speaking you shouldn't have any issues. Image another SD card and give it a try, you aren't going to hurt anything.
