Re: SD card backup

Very good, Howard!  This (built-in) app will be by far the easiest for me.  (Thank you!!)

I have skimmed the user group, and found the following:

I use a free utility Win32DiskImager.

See this link:  https://eltechs.com/raspberry-pi-backup/

Backup your Raspberry PiSDCard usingWINDOWS
  • Download Win32DiskImager from the SourceForge.
  • Safely remove your SD card from the RPi and insert it into your PC slot.
  • Open Win32 Disk Imager.
  • Choose the name and location of the backup file and the letter for your SD card and.
  • Click “Read”
Later if you need to restore/copy the SD use the same utility to write the image to the SD.

(Sorry to JEFF, the author of this post...)

But to have the same backup app INCLUDED is welcome news; -I have messed with Win32DiskImager, but for copying USB-device to USB-device was ill-defined, so it was not possible for me to positively identify the source and target USB-SD-CARDS.

Thanks again, Howard!!!   Mike, K0JTA

Hi Mike,

Yes, the same backup app is included with RigPi.  RigPi uses the stock Stretch os, no changes.

I found the answer right after I posted my question.  Seems to be working.  


SD card backup

Mike K0JTA
 

As a part of my Raspberry PI's OS, there is a SD-card backup app that is included as a default in my RPI.  Using this app, I can make a BOOTABLE BACKUP of my RPI's SD card.

Is this same app included in the RigPI SD card?  My SD card is due to arrive tomorrow, and I want to make a backup, so that if I mess something up, I can revert to my backup SD card!

If this basic app is not included, how does one make a reliable backup image or file for safekeeping?

Thank you;  Mike, K0JTA


Re: REPOST - Icom 7300 Set up instructions

Tom W5KUB <Tom@...>
 

Hello Chris, In the very beginning of the beta testing, I worked with Howard to have a lead from the rigpi that I could switch on and off using a macro. We did this and that line can be brought out of a jack on the keyer card  when configured in the set up, it will switch on and off with the macro.

I did not want my 12 volt power supply to have to always be on, and I sure did not want my antenna hooked up 24 x7, especially when not using the remote radio. I also did not like the fact that when storms were in the area, a close lightning strike could kill my radio even if the radio was turned off.

so i took a simple 12 volt coil realy and wired the 110 v ac (of the rig powersupply) through the contacts.  I also salvaged a small coaxial antenna switch from an old motorola trunk mount radio. It was also a 12 volt coil.   I used a small 12 vdc wallwart transformer to power the 2 12 volt relays.  I inserted a simple keying transistor to key the relays, and used the switched output from the rigpi to key the base of that transistor (it turned the relays on and off)

So under normal conditions, the radio is off because the 12 v radio supply is off, and at the same time that disconnects the antenna and grounds it protecting the radio from lightning.   Once i access the rigpi remotely (the rigpi must stay powered on all the time) and hit the macro that I have named "Power/Antenna" then it turns on the 12 v supply to the radio and the radio comes on and it connects the antenna.  All home brew and very simple circuitry.

Hi Rich,

Here are the "What's New" items for 1.05:

  • Power On for Elecraft KX-3 operates only when that radio is selected for the current account.
  • Adds information in Help for a new overlay for RigPi Audio to fix several issues.
  • Improved security in several modules.
  • Addition of Security Topic to Help

A practice I have used for years in programming and systems configurations is to keep a dedicated, detailed log of everything. Detailed enough so anyone can follow.
User name  and PSWD are recorded before the are imputed.
Yes, a separate user account is created with all privileges.
Also as suggested in the notes, a backup copy of the micro sd card is the first thing done after unpacking.
Enjoy everyone.

Yes, I agree on the backup but so far I haven't seen anyone totally hose themselves up so at a minimum you need to create the extra UserfID whether you have a backup or not.

Hi Clint,

The latest update brings you to 1.04 when you open the Tuner window for the first time and agree to the update.  I have a version 1.05 update just about ready to go.  MFJ started shipping cards with 1.05 in the last few days, but until then they were shipping 1.0.

Hope this answers your question.

IC-7100 tuning control only changing SUB not MAIN freq.

KC3HUL
 

Anyone experience an issue where the software tuning knob only changes the SUB and not the MAIN freq control?  I'm using an IC-7100 and can't seem to find how to change the focus to the MAIN freq when trying to use the tuning knob.

MFJ-1234 RigPi SD Card Serial Number

Clint Chron
 

It appears that sometime in late May or early June, MFJ started numbering the SD cards with a 3 digital serial number.  I have one recently received card with a SN of 279.  It has RSS version 1.0 installed on the card.  I would be interested in hearing from anyone that has a SN higher than 279 and/or has a RSS version later than 1.0

Hi Mitch,
 
All the default passwords and user names are provided in Rigpi Pi Help.  But change them ASAP if you are opening up RigPi to the Internet.  Instructions for making the changes are also in Help.

Answered my own question, user name pi pw 7388

Always search the forum first! :)

Got my sd card today, no computer monitor at rigpi position, I use VNC to connect to all of my RPi units. Rigpi is on network, VNC logon screen comes up, but does not recognize the user admin and pw blank? Also tried to login vis ssh, user admin and pw blank does not work either.

Suggestions?

Tnx

Hi Mike,

Yes, but not hard coded.  You can set the transmit dead man to any number of minutes you wish.  That setting is provided for each account in Account settings.

Hi Bruce,

Good methodology!

Everyone should remember that microSD cards are very inexpensive compared to your time, the cost of your RigPI or your transceiver!

Actually the best thing is to clone copy the image on the card to a hard drive
then keep the original in a safe place.  Use a image utility to put that cloned copy
on another card.  Use only the cloned copy, get everything up and running,
right before you change the password again make a clone copy of that image
onto the hard drive.  In case of emergency you have the saved cloned copies
to work with.  Name the first copy RigPI Orig and the second RigPI Work.
To be extra safe again clone copy the Work card and call that RigPI Work PWD.
PWD for password.

Jose,

Great to see that you've gotten the access back.
But, a little advice, now would be a great time to make a back-up of that SD card!
Maybe put it in an envelope with a slip of paper that has the valid admin username and password as of the date that the back-up was made.

Tony,

I am not at home now but go into the settings in WSJT-X and go to Athens audio setting tab. Instead of default set them to the Codec and it should work. I don’t remember the exact names.
