RigPi uses the Hamlib library for radio support.   Here’s a link to check out:


Hopefully your radios listed.

Re: Rigpi with IC-718

Michael Young
 

I’ve not used CI-V on an IC-718 myself so we’re both learning until someone else who has jumps in to help!

To learn more about it refer to the 718’s user manual and Hamlib.   User manual is easy so that’s what I looked at first.  I even looked at a couple you tube videos to see how it works.   I could not find in the manual exactly what RANGE of BAUD RATES the 718 supports but I did see an AUTO selection.   AUTO would be one thing to try but I just looked at Hamlib docs and they indicate max baud rate is 19,200, 8n1 BUT the 718 manual doesn’t specifically indicate how to to change baud rate to a specific speed.  Having a 718 to play with would possibly expose that unknown.   But I would try CI-V to AUTO on the 718... or if you can figure out with the radio how to set a specific speed to 19,200, do that. Set/verify the CI-V address to 5E, (the default), CI-V transceive to on (the default), CI-V 731 mode to off (the default).   For RigPi Settings>Radio>Basic>Manu Icom, model IC-718, port /dev/tty/USB0. Everything else to default.  Settings>Radio>Advanced use all the default settings for now.  Click test radio, see what happens.  I’m doing this from memory with no support hardware (RigPi) in front of me.  4 hours of HamVention left!

Can be easy, can be difficult...

Hopefully someone who has done this will jump in and help us...

So far no luck. If i try running some commands from the pi terminal (using 313 which is for a 718) Im getting a communication bus error.

I had several cables laying around which i thought should work for CIV (have the USB end with that 'converter) and 1/8 " on the other for the rig. Enjoying myself, hasnt exactly been plug-n-play yet, but somehow i'll figure it out  :)

The list of know radios supported by HamLib is here:
https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/RigPi%20Documentation/Hamlib%20Radio%20List%205-7-19.pdf
If the receiver can be controlled via CAT commands, and recognizes the commands of another radio listed, then it should work.
Audio from most any radio or audio source can be carried remotely via Ethernet or WiFi by RigPi using the Mumble VOIP server.

Re: Patch rig 1 to rig 2?

Mark Weisheimer
 

Hi Steve,

I think that you are looking for a repeater controller.
The RigPi is meant to control a CAT capable radio and make an audio connection using a network connection and does not support those roles using only an RF link.

if your radio will do AM then yes.  The rigpi will allow you to select ssb, fm, am, etc.

Does that RX support CAT Control via serial or USB connection?  The Mode makes no difference.

RigPi supports the modes the radio connected to supports for the most part.

Re: Rigpi with IC-718

Hi Adam,

At Hamvention but will try to help.  Also your screenshots get blurry when I zoom in with smartphone.

Goto Settings>System>there’s a button to power down the Pi.  Click it to gracefully power down the Pi. Then cycle the power to power/boot up.  

make sure the 718 is set to the highest baudrate it will support.  

Plugin the 718 to a RigPi USB port using the appropriate cable.

Goto Settings>Radio>Basic and set Manu to Icom, Model to IC-718,Port to dev/ttyUSB0.  Click the cloud to save settings.  

Then goto Settings>Radio>Advanced and click Test Radio.  Hopefully at the bottom of the output rigctl will show a connect.  If successful the tuner page will show the frequency and mode the 718 is tuned to and you should be able to control the radio.  

Sorry if I missed something. Doing this from (old) memory.  

Good Luck

Mike

Re: Running the tuner browser page directly on the RigPi server

Michael Young
 

Hi Manuel,  if you plug in a hmdi screen into your RigPi also a keyboard and mouse (usb wireless works great)...  When you boot the RigPi it wIll boot to the Pixel dashboard.  Clicking the pi symbol will connect you to the RSS tuner page. 

Hope this helps!

Re: Power

james@...
 

Thank you - I have an FT2000D so has CAT but clearly I would not want to leave the power supply running either. Hopefully a diagram of how to do this will come out.

James.


Re: Power

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi James and welcome.

The short answer is yes. Most newer radios provide  CAT commands to do that. RigPi also can control AC power switches by repurposing the PTT hardware connections.
