Re: Raspi, Icom 7200 and GPS, cannot make this combination work

John Schultz
 

Well as it turns out, that tip from Jason about PPS was the key to the solution. 

I ran CGPS and paid attention closely to what was being displayed at the bottom.  CGPS was not working in spite of the presence of a GPS dongle.  As it turns out, CGPS was attempting to use ttyUSB0 (the radio) as it's source of GPS info. 

So I looked at /etc/default/gpsd and saw that ttyACM0 was correctly identified in that file however USBAUTO was set to "True".  This meant that USB plug in devices other than ttyACM0 were allowed to be added to the GPS daemon.  I flipped that flag to "false" rebooted and everything worked!  So while I do not know why the radio was being detected as a GPS source, constraining the GPS daemon to only allow ttyACM0 is the solution in this case.

In the photos:
CGPS is functioning
NMEA is recognized as a system time source
FLRig is connected to the rig and happy

Re: Morse code program for Raspberry Pi

It also transmits CW using the sound card. On most radios it ends up being a sideband signal, and not true CW due to the data nature of the interface, but it’s generally still copyable—I really can’t tell a difference when I’m working it.

Thanks,
Dan

Re: PI-TNC Configure issue with LINBPQ and Bluetooth

John Wiseman
 

Dan,

There is a lot of out of date and therefore misleading information about
configuring the Pi to use a TNC-Pi or indeed anything on the Pi serial port.
Don’t use bpq-config. It is an easy way to get a bpq system up, but it not
correct about serial port handling. You may get away with it if you say you
aren’t using a TNC-Pi and add that to the config later. There are some
installation scripts on my bpq32/linbpq website
(http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Documents/BPQ32.html).

This problem arose when Pi models with Bluetooth were introduced. The system
originally uses the main serial port /dev/ttyAMA0 for Bluetooth and assigned
the second serial port /dev/ttyS0 to the Pi Header. This meant that which
port you had to use depended on the model of Pi you were using. This lead to
a lot of confusion and a lot of hacks were published, some of which disabled
Bluetooth and some moved it to the other port.

The Pi team realised their mistake, and for the past couple of years the
system creates a symbolic link (think alias if you are not familiar with
Linux terminology) /dev/serial0 to whichever port is assigned to the Pi
Header. So applications can use /dev/serial0 for any model of Pi.

By default the serial port is allocated as a console device. To make it
available for application use you need to run raspi-config, Interfacing
Options, Serial to Disable Login Shell and Enable the Serial Port. Many of
the installation instructions for the TNC talk about editing files
cmdline.txt and config.txt. This is no longer necessary, and the suggested
changes are likely to break things.

Sorry for the rather long response but without the background the reason for
ignoring much of the documentation isn't clear.

73,
John G8BPQ
(Designer of TNC-Pi)

Raspi, Icom 7200 and GPS, cannot make this combination work

John Schultz
 

Hello all,

Hoping to get some ideas from the group on an issue I've intermittently attempted to fix and subsequently give up on for the past several months.  I recently reached out to Jason, KM4ACK for assistance and he recommended that I post here for some help.

I am running a Raspi with JS8call on my home station 24x7 (N0JDS and N0JDS/P).  This system has been fully functional and stable using FLRig and JS8call for weeks / months.  The Pi is set up with a real time clock and I would also like to add a GPS dongle to sync time to the RTC.  Pretty straightforward, I have this exact config running on two other systems here at home but, both of those rigs are Yaesu radios.

With this Icom, as SOON as I install the all of the gps utilities attempting to use ttyUSB0 for rig control, I get failure from FLrig or Hamlib to connect to the radio.  To be perfectly clear the dongle for GPS does not need to be plugged in for this failure to occur.  I thought it was a cat port resource conflict however I have attached the results of verifying com port assignment as a photo on this post.  I've also attached the error message I receive.  The radio is assigned ttyUSB0 and the GPS is assigned ttyACM0 so there should not be a conflict.  The only way to restore connectivity to the rig is to completely remove the installed packages for GPS support.

When I sent Jason the results of dmesg he noticed that it appeared that perhaps the radio was being interpreted as an additional time source due to the "pps" information.  That's the first real breakthrough I've had in this situation however, I'm clueless how to proceed with fixing it.

Again, this system was working perfectly for several months with zero issues.  As soon as I attempt to configure GPS the issues begin so it's not a port speed issue, port selection issue, etc... It's something else and I am completely stumped where to begin.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Re: PI-TNC Configure issue with LINBPQ and Bluetooth

Todd Kolmodin <n7try.or@...>
 

Hi Dan,
I think  it is possible.  What are you digipeating? APRS?  I have a Pi3 with 2 stacked TNC-Pis utilizing the I2C bus.  G8BPQ (Pilinbpq) supports the use of the I2C bus which allows multiple TNCs to be stacked on the header.  In the bpq32.cfg you can add the APRSDigi section that allows the digipeating on either the same port OR across another port and vice versa.  None of this interferes with BlueTooth or WiFi on the PI. You can even configure a BPQEther port in the bpq32.cfg to access another BPQ switch on your WIFI Lan.  I've done this to port to a Windows BPQ switch that is running Winmor and provides the Winlink portal for HF and CMS.  Hopefully I understood your question correctly and this may help.

Re: R-pi4 4GB email with claws

Hi Jim

Yes they still have POP3, but maybe it is Thunderbird that refused to use it and gave the

reason as not secure. Up until about a year ago I was using POP3 with SSL enabled but was

required to go to IMAP. And yes it is a lot slower than POP3. I also realize that Google wants

as much information as they can get to make money from us, and is the reason I keep declining

as much as I can.

I may look into other email service providers but am not sure who might be less intrusive. I

don't think AT&T is any better, or Xfinity either. Yahoo might be an alternative but still looking to

invade my privacy.

I am still using the IMAP setup on all the machines I read mail from, some *nix and one windows 10 machine. All real slow but even on the browser direct to gmail it is slow so maybe I will need to switch email providers. But I haven't gone down that route yet.

What you probably need to do is somehow tell Gmail you're using a client of some sort that Gmail doesn't consider to be secure. Once they know you're willing to use an insecure client, you should be OK with that client.

With that concept in mind, search Gmail for details about using an old or insecure client.

Yes all of that is correct on all three of my laptops, and the same information on the Pi. The laptops

work well and the Pi gives the error of incorrect validation. So in my mind the problem is in

the Thunderbird and Claws on the Pi, bottom line problem on the maybe in OS, or in the applications.

If one is using the same application namely Thunderbird and using the same setup is using
