TNC-Pi9K6 step by step reprogram

guy@...
 

I have a TNC-Pi9K6 that  i have messed up the serial/I2c config... now when ever LinBPQ accesses it nothing happens but if i do a test poll on the port it will xmit..using serial0..

But as soon as I try and connect to the BPQ it shows the connect under users but then locks xmit up.  stop the service and restart BPQ and it unlocks until next cycle.

Is there a step by step on how to put firmware back on this device ?..

FT-991a and TNC-PI receive issue

chadney.greene@...
 

Got a strange issue that maybe someone here has encountered before.
The TNC-PI 2 makes a continuous tone this is usual you can hear it when you TX on the receiving radio.
When i connect the TNC-PI 2 to my Yaesu FT-991a i can hear the tone on the receive speaker of the radio when the radio is in FM-DATA mode. If i switch to FM mode i can't hear it anymore. The tone is so loud that i can not decode packets in FM-DATA mode only in FM mode.
I have been emailing John Hansen from coastalchip.com and he don't see any obvious issues in my configuration and he suggested i post here that maybe someone else uses the same radio with the TNC-PI. In my troubleshooting i could reproduce the issue with a USB SignaLink that i disabled the PTT connection.
With PTT off i had soundmodem.exe send a tone to the FT-991a and i could hear the tone thru the speaker not as loud as the TNC-PI but still very clear. 
Thanks

I prepared a how-to instructable for what you are asking for that I presented at the hamfest at Quartzfest a couple of years ago.  I have it on my web/file server.  Feel free to download it and look at it.  I live a few miles west of you in I-84; well near it.

The APRS file is at:  http://nb7o.ddns.net:83/files2share/NB7O%20Raspberry%20Pi%20APRS%20iGate%20Project%20using%20the%20TNC-pi%20and%20APRX.pdf

The web server with the weather station interface is at: http://nb7o.ddns.net:83

I am running WeeWx on a different PI that is also my file and web server.  The Pi is attached to an Acurite 5-in1 weather station here.

Let me know if I can help in any way.

Vince (KD7TWW):

If I understand correctly what you want to do (RPi + TNC-Pi + APRS), I may have something that you might find useful in a folder on my Google Drive, where I make available my presentations & supporting docs that I have given at the annual Cowtown Hamfest put on each January by the K5COW Cowtown Amateur Radio Club in Fort Worth, TX (shameless plug !!).

One of the presentations that I gave at last year's Hamfest was titled "Creating a Standalone APRS Tracker with Realtime Maps using TNCpi plus Xastir".  More importantly, in direct response to your request, you can access the detailed step-by-step walk-thru (titled "20180613 - Configuring a TNCPi+RPi3+Xastir for Standalone APRS Tracker.pdf") that went along with my presentation (as well as any other detailed walk-thru documents & presentations from previous years) from the collection folder using the following link:


Please feel free to ask any other questions that you may have . . . there are many others who have been where you are now & there are also those who are willing to help !!

Good luck & have fun !!

Hello Vince,

There are lots of great guides out there on the Internet but you'll have to piece things together for your specific goals.  For example, I've written a doc which should get you going on some of the items and while it does include support for the TNC-Pi, it might be a little too light for a newbie:

   http://www.trinityos.com/HAM/CentosDigitalModes/RPi/rpi2-setup.html

Ian KC2BXN also offered up some URLs as well. 


I would recommend a few things:

   - Figure out what you really want to do and stick to that original plan:
   - what do you want to do with APRS:  Lots of options for software out there from simple to very fancy and complex
   - what do you want to do with the LCD display?
   - Make lots of backups of the SD card as you go


Beyond that..  just start hacking away and come back to the list when you have questions.  Good luck!

Hi Vince,

First off would start with the Noobs page.  Below are a few guides I found on step by step on how to set it up.  Things to keep in mind and tips.  Linux is case sensitive, if it's typed like ExampLE, you have to type it that way.  I would recommend setting up remote access to the raspberry pi, using VNC, putty and a remote terminal for troubleshooting the TNC.   Once you have VNC or putty installed you can copy paste commands from your windows machine. Below are some links I used and had bookmarked. I was originally building an APRS node but I'm in Raleigh/Durham area and there's a packet network here that uses Rasberry pi and the TNC-pi called TARPN and I've set up a node for that.  I plan on setting up a APRS node but I put that project on hold for a bit.  I've included the link below because there's some very helpful information in the guide but I would recommend skipping the script and install portion of TARPN.  The script basically modifies the OS to run as a TARPN node.

Re: Signalink vs PI

The SL USB works for common modes where you can stand the truncation of the TX tones and slow return to RX caused by its internal VOX plus the distortion and high noise level in its design.
There are better solution though...

Re: Signalink vs PI

http://www.westmountainradio.com/rigblaster.php is a very brief comparison of Rigblasters with links to more and it shows the digital sound source for the Nomic is the PC. The schematic in the manual tells the story for sure.

Mentions that "The RIGblaster Nomic is a small, simple, rugged and inexpensive sound card interface - perfect for portable or temporary setups."

and the again later says: "no illegal or spurious signals due to built in sound card VOX operation"

Earlier in that sentence it says, "Positive and fully automatic PTT control," meaning there's a PTT line vs sound card VOX... tho maybe that's not readily apparent without looking a bit more.


Honestly, I'll take your word for it first... The device looks like it is more confusing than it needs to be.

It could be a bit confusing... until you look in the manual at the schematic. That tells the whole story of no built in sound card.


The SignaLink solves this problem, I just wish it had "trap door" access to the "IC" that configures the pin out on the inside. This isn't an issue if you use it as intended - set it and forget it... but I have 3 radios that I (would) like (to) move it between. I've seen modifications for this purpose, but it ruins the "elegance"

I haven't looked at the Signalink schematic, but you can probably do what you want with custom cables outside the Signalink. I think (Meaning I'm guessing) that the internal jumpers are so you can use standard cables outside. Just turn it around and use a single jumper configuration and custom cables. Maybe...

With the SignaLink, there is a connection USB (computer) and Radio (included adapter cable for your radio). It powers from USB and "does the thing" as I say. There are other connections on the back, but I can't find a reason to use them.

Re: Signalink vs PI

Pi Performance. At least 3 years I’ve been running WSJT-X on Pi-2, Pi-3 and P-3B with either Signalink USB or one of those $5 USB sound dongles, Of course the Pi-3 (++) handles the GUI interface better but encode/decode has never been impacted. No hub used but the USB connection real estate can get crowded with USB BT mouse and keybard and sometimes a long range WiFi USB dongle. Powered hubs are nice but read the power requirements for these sound card/dongles and you will find they draw a few milliamps, not amps.

If you have a power problem replace the Pi power cable or wire power direct to the Pi edge connector or test points. Junk Cables are your worse enemy. Bill k6acj.

Re: Signalink vs PI

David Ranch <dranch@...>
 


I never recommend user's to re-use the system's built-in soundcard as OS updates always seem to mess with their settings.  Specifically, after updates, you can have your OS system notification sounds sent out over the airwaves, have your levels all screwed up, etc.  It's just too inexpensive these days not to buy a second sound device be it a cheap USB device all they way up to devices like Signalink, RigBlaster Advantage, Timewave Navigator, etc.   Do yourself a favor and get a second sound device. 

Next.. if you go the home brew approach, it was mentioned that the EasyDigi is a good way to get audio and PTT line isolation.  These come from kits to ready-to-use versions:

   https://www.ebay.com/sch/cliffordwareham/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

As mentioned by others,  devices like the Signalink, RigBlaster Advantage, Timewave Navigator, etc also include isolation transformers which limit the audio spectrum passed through them.  This can impact "high speed" modes on VHF/UHF such as 9600bps G3RUH packet and possibly GMSK-based DStar.  Beyond those high speed modes, you won't have any issues with any HF modes at all. 

As to how to do this step by step, there are LOTS of websites on the web how to do this.  Google it to get started and we can help fill in the blanks when you have questions.

What are you trying to do with the Pi and your radio?

For rig control, you only need the Pi and a suitable cable (USB or serial)

For "digital modes" (fldigi, WSJT-X suite), if you rig doesn't have a built in sound card, you'll need an external sound device like a Signalink.
