Getting back to the RPi

Michael WA7SKG
 

After a hiatus of about two years or more, I am finally getting back to some RPi projects. The first one is my mobile APRS station. I have an RPi 3B+ with a TNC-Pi mounted in a Smarti-Pi Touch case with a 7" RPi touchscreen. This particular Pi was set up previously for I'm not sure what, but everything is likely quite out of date. This is the first time booting with the 7" touchscreen and the TNC-Pi attached. It was previously used with a 19" HDMI connection. Everything is way too big for this screen. I am powering the package through a Powerwerx USB-Buddy, which accepts 10-30V for a 5V-3A output which goes through a splitter (provided with the Smarti-Pi case) to power both the RPi and the touchscreen. I am getting a bright yellow lightning bolt in the upper right corner of the screen. I opened a terminal window and did the sudo apt update/sudo apt update thing which is taking forever to run.

As this Pi was not previously used for ham applications and the software is likely stale, I am assuming I should download a new image to the SD card. I honestly do not remember whether the current SD card has Raspbian or NOOBS on it and I don't recall how to tell. I've pretty much forgotten almost everything abut the Pi, so I'm really starting from scratch here.

I don't need a whole lot of apps. Just the basic OS and APRS client (probably YAAC). I'll be connecting a GPS puck for time and location. So, it will primarily be doing APRS and occasional conventional packet stuff.

Is there a suggested ham distribution for the Pi available, or should I just install the latest Raspbian, YAAC, and gpsd?

Thanks for any advice to help me get restarted.

Re: PI-TNC Configure issue with LINBPQ and Bluetooth

I don't see that exact message in the source, but to forward via Winlink you need a BBS called "RMS" with forwarding set to to a CMS Server. If this isn't the problem and the message you are getting is exactly what you said can you send me the BBS log and I'll try to work out where it is coming from.

Generally you are likely to get more help from the bpq32 groups.io group rather than this one,

The normal way to add a second TNC-pi is to use i2c. But the Pi4 has an extra 4 serial ports that can be enabled if needed so you cold use one of those. The downside is that you can't just stack it on top of the original - you'd have to connect with jumper wires.

Although you can use i2c for both ports it will work slightly better if you run one as serial and the other i2c. If possible use serial for the busier port.

That advice seems solid. But when I setup the autohotspot straight from full 2.0 image it broadcasts the ssid but wont allow a connection via ssh or vnc. It also for what ever reason says password is incorrect. I tried leaving as default 1234567890 and have shortened it. I also am getting an error when switching from local wifi to autspot

Hey, that's the way ALL my computer science profs tried to teach.  And at blazing speeds too.
When I started teaching the MC6800 in the 70's  I did it RIGHT., ow & easy.  ( whoops my opinion), but true/accurate.

I was known to be the FIRST student brave enough to ask a question.
Once I stated on the first day, "I feel I'm in the second semester of this two semester course".  It took the prof down a notch for us.

Very good info.

 

Now, don’t forget to add one other step to recover the File Manager that gets broken by the apt-get update command as of late.

Where it crashed when you try to use it.

 

apt full-upgrade  puts it back to normal again.

I cannot understand why so many are strugglng to get the image working.  The autohotspot is a great addition and easy to configure so it is not active at home.  I don't use a separate monitor or keyboard for the pi.  I use SSH and VNC to access the pi.  After booting up the image the first time do the following.

1. Point you computer at the pi's autohotspot network and sign on to that network
2. SSH into the pi with the  10.0.0.5 ip with your favorite SSH client
3. Run raspi-config and change password, change name (I use my call), expand file system, set time zone, change screen resolution for VNC to work properly and any other config considerations
4. Edit wpa_supplicant.conf  and add your home network or other networks you may connect to (phone hotspot, laptop hotspot, etc.)  Now the pi will check and connect to a favored network before starting the hotspot.
5. Reboot pi and sign back into your home network and you should see it on your network wifi.  Use VNC or SSH to connect to the pi.  You will need to see what IP has been assigned to the pi by your network. 
6. Update and upgrade pi 
7. You will probably want to change the name of autohotspot network and password.

If you are not familiar with SSH, VNC, and the basics of the pi,.don't panic but use this as a learning experience.  raspberrypi.org has good documentation to help you learn your pi.

Routers at our 2nd hand shop often go in the $2 range.  They may be older but for you needs they may work perfect.
