Hi folks, thanks for having me...

Names Philip (G4JVF), ex TV service engineer, wrong side of 65, not the sharpest knife in the drawer nowadays and to cap it all, a total noob with Linux.

Anyhoo, I like tinkering with QRP beacons on WSPR and QRSS so I had thoughts of maybe getting a Raspberry Pi to somehow integrate with all this.
Last night, following instructions on the HamRadioScience site, I got my Pi to serve via TCP, data from an RTL dongle to SDR# on my PC.
Works very nicely...

Holy grail to me would be to get something like ARGO running on a Pi for low power usage QRSS grabber sessions but maybe that's not possible....I don't know..

OK, off to read through all the posts and files on here...

Regards
Philip G4JVF


Re: PI TNC - progress report.

John Wiseman
 

Hi Steve,
 
I have a couple of prototype boards using the RFM22 modules communicating across the room with a bit of wire hooked to the module, and have designed a board for a proper version with an SMA connector so I can try them with real antennas. I should get the boards in a couple of weeks, and they will also take the higher power (1 watt) version, the RFM23BP.
 
73,
John

John,

Have you made much headway with the RFM modules?

This is of interest to me.

Hello

I have very little experience in posting.
I am new to linux, but I did see a small problem with all the digital modes. The sound card chews up most of the usable CPU on the PI.

1) Is there a digital program that will work without the shell? Dose the sound card need the shell?
2) Would there be a programmer that would build a miniature or competition digital program for the RaspberryPI?

Re: JNOS

Thanks, John.  I tried to follow the instructions, but received a message that the binary would not run.  Obviously I didn't pay attention to something.   I'm sort of a nubie at this Linux stuff.  Will go at again.

Has anyone implemented JNOS on the PI ? I've tried without success, but then I'm more of a Linux "appliance operator." Have managed to get simple programs like minicom to work, but nothing that is what one may consider outside of the box.

Additional option to VNC (for LAN type connections)

 

The base Raspberry Pi image have X11 --- Linux desktops have X11, MacOS has it (or you can do a quick install of Quartz X11 (http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/)  and Windows use something like http://www.straightrunning.com/XmingNotes/

Hi Matthew,

I use a wireless keyboard and mouse which have a micro tx/rx and a cheap TV. I'm looking for a suitable USB micro wifi beast and then my PI will tuck away behind the TV.

You could also try using VNC, I've seen reports of others using that to interface to a PI remotely.

Brian,
 
I've found these wifi dongles work fine with the current PI distribution,
 
 
Matthew,
 
I sometimes connect an analog TV or hdmi monitor, but usually use SSH to access the PI. I use putty as the SSH client, and Xming as an X server to run GUI applications from my Windows box. You can set putty up to redirect the X session back to the PC automatically.

John G8BPQ

Don,

I'm using an SD card I bought on eBay at the moment, but I'm tempted to buy some other SD cards and write his image to one so I have it.

Matthew,

If you use Tom, ON4TOP's file, it has TightVNC built in it. Any TightVNC on your computer works great to get into the Pi!

Enjoy, its a fun and powerful board.
