Support for NW Digital Radio DRAWS hardware (idea)

Stephan DG1BGS
 

A friend of mine purchased the RSS from MFJ and I had a short discussion
with him today. I'm not interested in the Keyer- or Audio board, but I
own a DRAWS hat from NW Digital Radio that could be used with this
amazing Software package.
I'll wait until the Software is released on Github (when will this be
approx?) and take a closer look into it. Or Howard might be interested
to implement the hardware-support for the DRAWS hat as well and make it
available as an option in the settings.

GREAT question!  I had thought of this myself, but had not taken any action.  (So, THANK YOU for this new topic!)

For those who may not know what this "RS-918" is all about, it is a pocket-sized 10 watt HF ham SDR.  There is a user group as seen in the following link, where one can learn more about this fine unit:
https://groups.io/g/RS-918-HF-SDR-Transceiver

The RS-918-PLUS has been around for quite some time, and as a result, the basic model is quite mature.  -And it continues to evolve, as the FIRMWARE continues to be updated as the firmware is ongoingly improved.  (The FIRMWARE "is the radio," to summarize...)

I have the SD card for the RigPI on order from MFJ, and of course, it is on back-order at this moment.  -Not at all surprising, as the MFJ-1234 is quite an exciting item!  My original thought was to use the MFJ-1234's SD card to couple my Raspberry PI to an IC-7300, but the possibility to use this same device to control the RS-918 is  very exciting to me!

  Harold W5ZZT      I do live in an apartment; but have friends that live in the country side with internet access =)    So you know where I going with this is a remote station on a country side hilltop location with solar power / VPN WiFi connection =)   I have several R Pi and love playing with them and see what I can do with them and Ham Radio projects =)     I did have a tower ( never put it up ) for my house .... so gave it to a family member when I moved into the apartment =)   The picture you may see it my camera tripod / counterpoise wires with my Outbacker Perth antenna as a setup for /P at a state Park setting =)   I cannot have any outside antennas at the apartment =(    I do run QRP at the apartment and digital modes only =)

Thanks for inclusion into the group and look forward to setting up a R Pi remote station =)

I just can't get it to find the radio .. I am very sure if it found the radio I could get everything else to work.

While I haven't heard of anyone yet using that radio (or any of it's mcHF cousins) it appears to have everything it would need to work.
It has a mini-USB interface (the DFU port) that would allow you to connect a single USB-Mini cable from the RigPi to the radio.
That would carry both CAT radio control (it supports FT-918 CAT commands) and USB audio for Transmit and Receive audio.

I have a FT-847 as well as a IC-7200 =)   I will keep checking back with more information about this =)

The FT-991 guide would be useful if you are using the MFJ-1234 with a radio that has a built in USB audio CODEC.
Is that what you are trying to do?

I have not purchased Rig Pi yet. I am still thinking about it, learning about it, before I make the decision to buy or not. I do use VNC Connect now, but maybe VNC Viewer would work. I have thought about using VNC Connect to a local computer at the remote location, and use Skype to remote the audio both directions for the Icom IC-7610. I also have the Icom RBC01 second edition remote control software, but I have not installed it yet to test it.

Hi Dave,

Do you already have a RigPi?  If not, let me know when you are in a position to try an early Beta Windows program that will let you use HRD to control RigPi.  It handles frequency, mode and PTT.

You can run WSJT-X from a remote location using the built-in remote desktop with a client running on your remote device called VNC Viewer.

RigPi Audio Settings for USB Audio.
  1.  On the RigPi desktop RIGHT click on Speaker icon in the top right hand corner of the screen.  For the USB cable It needs to have a check mark by the "USB Audio CODEC".  Select it if not already checked.
  2. Your mumble menu should showing on the desk top.  If not click on the lips at the top right of the screen.  This will bring the main Mumble menu into view.
  3. On the Mumble menu go to Configure>settings>audio input tab on left.  Verify the Device to the right is set to default.  If not use the drop down menu to set it to default.
  4. Press Apply at the bottom . Do NOT press OK yet.
  5. Now on the left hand side of the menu move down to the next menu by selecting "Audio Output" and  as you did in step 3 verify the device is set to Default. If not set it to default.
  6. Set the Output delay slider to "50ms". This ensures no TX audio dropout's at some installations.
  7. Press Apply. This time press OK.  The configuration menu goes away.
  8. THIS Step IS IMPORTANT To save your Mumble changes you must Quit Mumble and Reboot. To do this,  on the main mumble screen now showing press Server>Quit Mumble.      *Mumble menu will go away*    
  9. Go to the Raspberry icon at the top left of the screen and after pressing on it select "Shutdown". It is the last selection and will bring up another menu usually in the middle of the screen.  Please select "Reboot"
  10. When the system comes back up Verify any changes you have made are still there. If not start over and take your time.
RSS Tuner Setup
 
I will assume that you set the radio up taking the defaults. You should have done this in the initial setup or when adding a new radio.  If you didn't please add the radio to the RSS now.  See help instructions on this web site if needed.
 
  1.  You will need to start the RSS by double clicking on the Pi icon or from a PC using VNC.
  2.  In 30 seconds or less you will see the sign on screen appear.  Sign on with the ID you set up. It will be Admin (no password) if you did not change it yet.
  3.  On the menu bar across the top above the Frequency readout go to Settings>Advanced Radio.
  4.  Set the baud rate to match the radio.  In our case set it to 38400.
  5.  You must save this change by press the up arrow inside the cloud.  It is under the call sign search on the right hand side of the screen.
  6.  Now on the menu line press the Tuner selection. This will take you back to the main screen.  Try to connect to the radio.  In a few seconds it should tell you you are connected.  If you receive any other message then press disconnect and after receiving the disconnect message and try to connect again.  If it still doesn't connect you will have to do some trouble shooting by checking your settings again or asking for help on the forum.
I will assume you know how to connect to your RigPi both from the LAN and WAN and that you have forwarded the correct ports for the WAN usage.  If not you have some reading to do in the Help Section.  Since every router is different it is not practical to provide the instruction on port forwarding for your router.  You will have to read the manual for your router or try and find others on the forum who might have the same router.  Google is also your friend as well as the search function of this forum.
 
Now it's time to listen to yourself on another receiver or your radio's monitor and see how you sound.  The monitor function will cause an echo but if that's all you have then use it.  Just make sure and turn it off before you get on the air.
 
Now get on the air and have some fun.
 
If you find any errors in these instructions or have any questions please let me know so I can correct them.

Can Ham Radio Deluxe be run from the remote location with the Rig PI connection?

dave.borchard@...
 

I would like to continue using Ham Radio Deluxe for PSK31, keyboard CW, and the other digital modes, plus logging. Can Ham Radio Deluxe be used in conjunction with Rig Pi? Can WSJT-X and JT Alert also be run on the remote location computer with Rig Pi?
