Re: I have an extra MFJ1234

Garry Decker <K9WHF@...>
 

My MFJ1234 arrives Wednesday.
I am returning it unopened to Gigaparts as I think I am going to have significant issues getting it connected with my Comcast gateway port setups.
The so called Plug and Play is a myth propagated by the developer not to mention the required subscription to his CommCat software.
If anyone needs one of these send me a e-mail at K9WHF at Comcast dot net.

Re: Got my RigPi working

Larry
 

Hello,

During my testing of different radios I found that Hamlib always
defaults to the highest baud rate that the radio supports rather than
the factory default baud rate; therefore, always make sure to set the
CAT interface on the radio to the highest speed.

Well after only about an hour of trying I got my Rigpi working. Tested on both Android and IOS. I elected to start with my Icom R-72 receiver first. Everything worked using the instruction in the RigPi help file. The only problem I ran across was the default baud rate in Hamlib for the R-72 receiver was 9600 while the actual default in the radio was 1200. I just followed the troubleshooting procedures in the help file and got it working. Tomorrow I’ll try and set up my Icom 7100. One thing I also did that was very helpful was download a 30 day free trial version of Ham Radio Deluxe for Windows. This allowed me to verify my USB interface cable to the radio was working and insure I knew the proper baud rate and CI-V address configured in the radio.

Re: Rigpi with IC-718

You should be good with that cable for audio and keying.
There may be a configuration for the '718 to set audio to and from the DIN port.
For RigPi audio issues, the Help files are really a good way to work through those issues.

https://rigpi.net/help/

Go the Technical at the bottom, then Troubleshooting, then No RigPi audio.

Let us know if that doesn't get you there.

Re: Rigpi with IC-718

Adam Hosa
 

I have some good news! Finally got it connected! I can control the rig from my Ipad. 

Next question: Audio and Transmit

I have the cable from MFJ I purchased to go from the rig to the RJ45 on the Pi. Is that all i 'should' need? Tried keying up CW but doesnt key the rig. Do I need to also interface with some of the other 1/8" jacks on the pi, or should the MFJ cable handle that? Same question about audio out since I dont hear anything yet. 

Thanks Again!

Adam


Re: TS 590 Audio TX/RX

Mark Weisheimer
 

Hi Doug,

I'm not sure if you are sensing audio at the RigPi or not, but that would be the place to start.
Take a look at the Help files, starting in the Technical section, troubleshooting, No RigPi audio.
There is a good guide there to testing the audio.

Let us know if that doesn't get you going.

Buddy,

I have it installed with a K3 and it is pretty straight forward.
Mine uses the original KIO3 board (not the B with USB sound card internal to the rig) and I have connected:
2 each 3.5mm to 3.5mm 3 pin cables, 1 from the K3 Line out to RX on the RigPi, and the 2nd from TX on the Rigpi to Line in on the K3.
That takes care of the audio.
For the CAT control, I used a FTDI USB to DB-9 connected from a USB port on the RigPi to the Accessory port on the P3, but could be the RS-232 port on the K3 if no P3/KPA500/KAT500.
PTT is handled via CAT.
I did need to remote VNC into the RigPi and run the Alsamixer (from a terminal window) and configure the INPUT to MIC with 0db of boost using F6 in Alsamixer.

I picked up a KIO3B at Hamvention.
I plan to install that next week and I expect to use a single USB to USB connection and can elaborate on that once have have it installed.
I only did it to bring the K3 to K3s specs, there are no issues with RigPi using this original KIO3.

i ordered my 1234 yesterday from gigiparts.  i am hoping someone on here has successfully implemented the 1234 in a k3 environment and can share his/her experience. 

i also have an xfinity dual band wireless router.   also hope a brave soul will share experiences. 

thanks much

I would like to do remote contesting from my RV this summer.
I normally use a MK-II as interface and N1MM+ sofware.
What do I need, one or two MFJ-1234, Where will be the N1MM+ sw

rigpi src code

r.neese@...
 

will all the code be made avaible . we want top put this on a faster low cost board that has a emmc of 8 gig on it and make it a armbian img so that others can install rightonto a emmc with no issue.

The board we are looking at is made by Friendlyelec 

looking at :
https://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=196
and
https://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=241
these units are more powerfull and have emmc so performance is better then a sd card in the longrun.

There’s 9600 and ‘hi’ in the civ baud selection. Trying hi, even though I can’t find any documentation on what hi is haha


Re: CGNAT

clint parreno <sv_clintrace999@...>
 

Will the rigpi requires a dynamic / static IP? Our ISP in the philippines is under CGNAT where a 1 public ip were shared by many users, i don't think port forwarding is an issue though.

Thanks

Clint

Hi Clint,

There is no simple way to set up port forwarding through CGNAT, but it is possible.  Use Google to search for ngrok for Linux.  I have not had experience with solving the CGNAT issue, but some googling came up with this possibility.

TS 590 Audio TX/RX

Doug Rea
 

Good Morning All!

Anyone try this device on a TS-590sg yet? 
Just got mine yesterday from HRO for the purpose of replacing Remotehams.
USB connections seem solid and is allowing me to control the rig just fine but the 13pin din to RJ45 connection is not giving any audio.
I think my audio setting on the 590 are correct but I am wide open to check again.

Advice?

Re: Receivers and AM

The FRG-100 is on the list.

Isn’t the IC-A24 an aircraft band hand held?  It’s not on the list.  

IC-2725 not on the list.  I looked at the manual and got the impression it’s not fully CAT controllable.   Limited to memory programming.  But I also cud b wrong.

Re: Rigpi with IC-718

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Adam,

(Thanks, Mike, for your help with the 718.)

Here is additional info:

1. The IC-718 Baud rate can be set using the menu selection for AutoBaud.  Default is “At” which is automatic.  Other fixed values can be found in the AutoBaud list.  Select the highest Baud rate in that list.  This is what Hamlib uses for their default.

2. The menu selection CI-V Transceive (which sends unsolicited data from the radio), must be OFF or RSS will get confused.

3. In other messages we have described how to use the Raspberry Pi Terminal to bypass RigPi.  You’ve done that, but try again after making the changes in 1 and 2.  If you get a prompt “Command:” you are good.  Type an F followed by a return to read the radio’s frequency.  If you see the frequency you can start celebrating.

4. Use Ctrl+C to exit the rigctl program.  Open a RigPi browser and go to Advanced Radio settings.  Make all boxes say Default.  Try Connect Radio.  If it fails, use Disconnect Radio, then try the Test button.  As Mike said, the images you sent need to be higher resolution so we can read them.

There is a possibility the cable you are using for CI-V to USB is not correct, or may be bad...

We WILL get you going!
