I just thought that I would have another try before I went to bed. Total victory. I am happier than a dog with a half dozen juicy bones. I'd love to stay up and try it all night but now - bed - well in a while. To quote 'Flounder' from 'National Lampoon's Animal House' - "Oh boy! This is great!" - Tryg de EI7CLB

I formatted the card with SD Card Formatter, so it was clean. I'm off to bed, it's getting late; 01:36.

Well, I wasted my time downloading it. This should have been disclosed up front in the announcement. I try to keep my power consumption down and this won't help in addition to using up connection bandwidth.

File deleted...

ATTENTION: So I don’t get publicly tarred and feathered for not
disclosing this openly, please be aware by running this image on your
Raspberry Pi that you consent to giving your idle cpu cycles to radio
telescope research, such as looking for pulsars. If you do not agree
with this, do not run the image. Again, this will not interfere with your

usage – this only uses cpu cycles when your Raspberry Pi is idle. Disk
use is also minimal. (1/1000 or less)
(For what it’s worth, I also operate my Raspberry Pi 4 this way.)

I am fresh out of tar and feathers. This project looks intriguing and very interesting and I can appreciate the work you put into it.  I intended to use this on a portable setup (gobox) using a metered Internet connection, if connected at all. Is it possible to disable this? If not, I will have to look elsewhere.

Re: A bit of help needed

N5XMT
 

HamPi_v1.0.tar that you download is only 3.65G
7zip will extract that into a folder with the following files.  see pic.
you start etcher, and select the image file, which in this case will be HamPi_v1.0.img.xz, then select the sd card and start.
If it's making a 17mb file, there was something wrong with the download...

OK, I d/l'd the files and used 7zip to extract them. There is a tar file and a BZ2, what do I do now?

Finally got this solved. Apparently when editing the txt file I buggered up something. I copied over the default file and tried again. Works!
Thanks to all who reached out.

Thanks Dave
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

Thanks

The master/slave thing is a year old. It just wasn't newsworthy until recently. At least that's what they've written about the subject.

Danny,

I had a number of "armchair lawyers" attacking my license on Reddit. When I spoke up, they started attacking me. I decided the best thing was to take the site offline until that dumpster fire dies down and I add additional verbage into the license.

So you can thank that disgruntled group of people for the GitHub site being taken offline for the time being.

Re: HamPi 1.0 Release Imminent

Danny K5CG <k5cg@...>
 

KM4ACK has a video about how to install patmenu2 and the first two steps prior to anything else is check for and install yad and jq.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpVfRUBdZ7E

They are dependencies.


Re: HamPi Problem: SDRPlay not working with GQRX

Everything except yad and now jq.

Even better would be to issue a script that installs the ham software onto a standard Raspbian image. People could then download a few kilobytes instead of many gigabytes.

And if the script included a way to update the programs they wouldn't get out of date almost as soon as they are installed.
I spent six months creating an automated installer using Ansible. It automatically installs all the software. It takes about six hours to run for me.

Well, pat needs to be setup yes, using patmenu.

patmenu fails without yad. It's a missing dependency, a software package, not a configuraiton issue.

Well, perhaps that should be a FAQ. PatMenu requires setup and with that setup needs a person's individual grid square. That is impossible to set for each individual user on a shared image.
