Re: CGNAT

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Clint,

Port forwarding is normally required for RigPi.  You would have to get the folks running your CGNAT public IP to do that for you.

You need to know the IP address from your remote location.  If that changes, you won’t be able to connect.  Normally one would use a dyndns service to provide a static address that is translated to the current address.  There are services that provide that for free, so long as you don’t mind renewing very month.

Re: CW-RTTY contest remote

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Claude,

It is possible the N1MM developers will want to have an interface to RigPi just as I have done with CommCat.  (CommCat is NOT a contesting program!). Interfacing is done through a simple TCP connection and I would be happy to share the details with any other developers.

Only one RigPi would be required at the rig end.  Unless your program knows how to talk to RigPi, you would use a browser from your RV.  RTTY is supported by Fldigi in RigPi.  Remote paddle for CW is a high priority, but at the moment, only typing characters on a keyboard is provided.  RigPi has user programmable macros which would be great for CW contests.  For example, in the shipping version there are macros for “5NN TU” and “<his call> DE <my call>”.

Re: RigPi versus RemoteHams

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Dave,

RemoteHams works well and has many happy users.  I chatted with several RemoteHam folks at the Hamvention.  I, too, hope someone more experienced than I will do a detailed review.  One downside to RemoteHams is the requirement to keep a PC running 24/7.

No problem, Garry, thanks.  In reality we are all learning, which is why I started the development of RigPi in the first place several years ago.

Re: I have an extra MFJ1234

Reuben Stapp
 

It doesn't require commcat although it can use it. It uses almost any browser.  The only browser that I found didn't work right was QTWeb. Setup depends on the radio you have. It will require a CAT to USB cable for your radio and audio interface cables.

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.

RigPi versus RemoteHams

Dave Slotter, W3DJS
 

Has anyone done a detailed comparison between the RigPi and RemoteHams application?

I'm curious to know how they match up (as well as differ).

Thanks and 73,

It appears that you should have sound if the radio is outputting sound.
Have you tested the audio output of the radio, perhaps by playing it through an amplified speaker from a PC?

Re: rigpi src code

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Yes, RigPi is open source except for the graphics components.  I have RigPi set up on Github, but nothing there yet. So much to do, so little time.

Since RigPi uses HTML5 and open tools, you can grab it from the RigPi memory card and play as much as you like.

One of the first jobs will be to code open source replacements for the knob, s-meter and freq readout which are proprietary.

Re: Got my RigPi working

That sounds great, having a lot of trouble trying to get Rigpi going on FT-991. It has built in sound card but the cable does not work for it, so put in signalink
and I get mic to key, but no audio on receive. It must be some setting somewhere. Any ideas let me know. Also I can be texted at 626-367-3944

Re: elekraft k3 implementation

Mark Weisheimer
 

Harold,

I haven't implemented port forwarding yet.
That will be done at my brother (N8KHO) Monte's network.
I am working on getting things set up for the various rigs we will use.
Then comes more antenna work at his QTH, and finally the port forwarding.

The port forwarding info is in the Help file, check under 'RSS Connections' then 'Remote Connections'.
That will be the guide that I follow once I start...so far the guides have been great!

Re: Rigpi with IC-718

That is a very small screen shot...

The last line is the sound card that RigPi is using and it is fine.

Here is my listing and the audio works as it should. I did need to run Alsamixer (using Terminal) and set the input to Mic with 0db of boost using the F6 command.
After bringing up the menu via F6, use the cursor keys to select the Input Mux and cursor to Mic.

Re: Got my RigPi working

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.
