Sorry, my big screen TV died. Trying to read this with bad eyes and a very small screen https://tnc-x.com/TNCPi.pdf this is what I'm going by. So far have seen any notes.

that's one of the first syntaxes I used. The yellow light is flashing on the Pi Hat. All of the lights blink when power is applied.

Putting it to bed for a while. If I plugged my USB tnc-x I get it to start in not type.

Had a similar problem with a Pi 3B.  Ended up buying one of these to boost its signal.  Works okay with this.


Bit of a pain for portable use as it's another device to tote, plus extra HDMI cable, etc.  Does fine at home.

hmm could we get such a thingy run on a pluto??

yes i know not a raspi but it is a linux box (kind of) ... and a wideband transceiver

here in germany a few guys planning to make the pluto a user access point for hamnet ... THAT could be really a nice idea for replacing the packet net (or the rest of that we still have) all to hamnet ...

Dave, the Soapy/SDRPlay drivers worked with RSP2-GQRX for you?  I couldn’t get it to work; perhaps I missed something.

Downloaded It.
Now wanting to run it as a WSPR node, with SDR Play RSP1 .

Will it be plug and play  ?

Will i need any API to be installed for SDR Play ?

Also any pointers as to how to route the audio from SDRPlay to WSJT X for input to run the WPSR Node

You're welcome.

There are two ways to run WSPR on the HamPi image "out of the box". One is to run the "wspr-pi" application in /usr/local/bin . The second is to run WSJT-X.

The SDRPlay is receive-only. You can not use it to send WSPR.

The SoapySDRPlay drivers have been installed on HamPi. This allows you to use the SDRPlay with GQRX and CubicSDR, for example.

I bought my cable from Hammadeparts.com (and ebay).

Works fine. I have not used it in a while as I created the setup for Emergencies
then packed it nicely ready to go out the door.

Subject: [RaspberryPi-4-HamRadio] TNCPi WITH YAESU FT 7900R

OK I am thinking of trying a TNCPi with a ft 7900r, the pigate site shows the pinout for a FT 2800/2900 using the mic port. My question is my 7900 has a rear data port why can't I use it? Her is a comparison of the 28/2900 mic pinout and my plan for my 7900. Do I need to figure out and use the pinout for the 7900 (MH48A6J) MIC PORT instead? Below left mic pinout from website, Below right my plan for 7900.

Re: TV HDMI #pi

Rob,

I have a 40" Vizio TV I bought 11/19.  I had a similar issue with it not detecting an input signal.  Discovered the TV is just too smart and is picky about inputs with the default settings, but if you disable "CEC" under "System", then it works as expected.  Take a look at what's under "Menu" on your 32" TV and see if you have this parameter.

You need to use the 1200 port on the radio. The other is for high speed packet and won’t work with a TNC that isn’t made for it. Otherwise all is good.

Running the pi with a 20 inch vizio tv out in the shop all is good. Decided to use a 32 inch vizio tv. No signal on the 32 in. When the 20 inch is on I unplug the hdmi cable Then plug into the 32 inch it works.....I did a reboot... then no display on the 32 inch......TNX

Tim,

Thanks!  I will eventually figure it out. Knowing this will make it easier.  I’ve looked at a few basic intro to Linux YouTubes and read a lot of the info at the Raspberry Pi Foundation.   All that helps. The encouragement of yourself and others in this group help.
