Re: Still having a problem, please help

KK4JOW
 

Yay!!!! So, Ive worked it all out and I am up and running.
My first problem was with the hotspot and I followed some posters suggestions but failed at each. Finally I found a post from Dave W3DJS himself and it worked!!! Here is what he said:
 Dave Slotter, W3DJS
11/18/19   

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.)

  W3DJS

It worked perfectly!!
I then had a problem with not being able to get it to run without a monitor, just using VNC Viewer. It kept on telling me that it couldn't display the desktop. Easy fix once i went back into raspi-config and changed the display size.
I just set up my gps and sound card and going to hook my rig up for some FT8.
My biggest lesson was not backing up after each change. If I had from the beginning, i would have saved myself a lot of work.
To all who answered me, thanks so much for your help. I look forward to meeting you on the air.

Update -- I re-flashed the image and now all works fine. You might this. FYI. 73.

Have you guys watched KM4ACK youtube videos yet on this issue?
Im pretty sure he has the resolution. You just have to do a couple steps and wifi is good to go.

Thanks for responding. I guess my issue is setting up the god config in d rats. I have gpsd running with the dongle. Gpsmon and cgps -s both show the dongle is receiving. So in d rats, for the gps port, I have tried net:localhost:2947, net:127.0.0.1:2947 and I have even changed the gpsd config file from that ip to 0.0.0.0 and tried that all with no luck. 


any advice is appreciated.

A lot of Hams have suffered the same hassles.

I wrestled with it a while then moved on.

I just formatted the micro-SD, loaded Buster-Raspian, then booted it.

Entered all the requested settings and ran the updates.

After that I loaded the apps I wanted, e.g. flrig, fldigi, JS8Call, etc.
via the Internet connection.

It works fine - with no hassles.

Note: I did discover that 5GHz WiFi works better in my home office/
radio room as there's so much already using 2.4GHz.

Other than that - it's great out of the box.

HTH ... David KD4E

I really need some expert advice on my situation. I have been playing with the W3DJS image for a few days. I have not been able to set up wifi on it.
I have entered the KillHotspot command.
I have entered all my regional info.
I go to Raspi-config and go to wifi settings.
I then get "could not communicate with wpa_supplicant.
In the upper right corner where the wifi info is, the pull down menu says wlan0 STOPPED.
I can not find anywhere how to fix this.
I've set up another sd card just with Raspbian with desktop and my Wifi is immediately found so it's something in the W3DJS image.
I have downloaded it 3 times and one on bit torrent and have reimaged  my card several times with Etcher.
Still no luck. 
Any ideas? If not
Is there any way I can add the W3DJS additions to my Rasbian sd card.
PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hey gang,

has anyone ever used d-rats with gpsd? I’ve been trying but have been unsuccessful. I have found only one historical post on an old board about it and tried those instructions. 


thank you

I had it running, but with another cmd line, but it stopped after a short time. I give your solution a try later today.

Thanks Mathison.

This project uses mostly 3D printer parts for the build and I do not own one. The design is usefull as a electronics example.

Re: Signalink NO Capture in Alsa

The J1 pin been removed to allow for maximum audio. The squelch on radio is open. This is only on the Pi 4, unless the Signalink has packed it in.

It is normal for the Signalink not to provide an input level control on the sound control panel, I assume because the codec used does not have a software controlled input amplifer. There is an internal link to increase the level and make sure the external rx pot is set to maximum.

Hi Don,
I have the Pi-3 and there isn't a MIC input on the Pi itself.  Unless you have an external sound dongle you are using there will not be an RX device.
These USB Sound dongles are like 5 bux on Amazon (make sure linux compatible.)  Running the command aplay -l && arecord -l  will tell you the devices available for record and playback.  I ran in to this with Direwolf.  The PI can send out via the 3.5mm plug but there is no input.  
Hope this helps..

Re: Gpredict cannot connect to Yaesu FT817

I forgot to specify on my previous email (I pasted from my notes), that is because I chose to stop trying to to figure it out. Often software upgrades broke the functionality and for some reason the person who writes rigctl is a wizard that always gets that right. I use it instead of direct serial from some apps.

Re: Gpredict cannot connect to Yaesu FT817

To control the radio, the rigctl daemon must be running first. To start the rig control daemon:

rigctld -m 120 -r /dev/tty.KeySerial1 -s 38400 -t 4532 -C stop_bits=2&

Notice /dev/tty.KeySerial1 is the serial cable you are using. I switched to keyspan to stop fighting with drivers on my Mac. 4532 is just a TCP port number of your choosing.  Just make sure is not already used. I picked that one for some reason.

Then from gpredict:


Edit->Preferences->Interfaces-> Add new:  and my settings are included in the picture. The name you can name as you wish. The port must match the one you used in rigctl.  

I hope that helps.
