Re: FT-857 No Audio

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Jeff,

I don't blame you for being discouraged, but I have 100% confidence we can get the 857 going.

I'm not clear on why disconnecting the mic would be related to the report of an unknown error...

Let's back up a minute on the mic.  You are connecting RigPi audio through the rear DATA connector on your radio.  That DATA connector has a audio input that should come from RigPi.  It also has a PTT connection.  The PTT connection switches the audio input from the mic to the DATA connector.  This is done so the radio won't pick up mic noise when you are using the DATA connector as an audio source.  Since the current problem is no transmit audio, one possible cause is that the DATA PTT connection isn't switching the audio.  My proposed test was to put the radio into SSB transmit from RigPi, then key the mic to see if audio is still getting through that path.  If it is, then that narrows the problem.

Re: IC-7610 woes

Hi Bo,

The CI-V address should be \0x98, using a backslash.

The Power macros must start with *1w<space> for Icom radios.  There is a possibility the 7610 has a slightly different command to set power levels.  Please check the CAT programming manual for the 7610.  You will see a popup message since the Icom sends back a Hex code, but it shouldn't disconnect the radio.

I'm not clear on what you are asking in your left/right question.

I agree, a bit of wine is always a fun project!  :-)

Hi Howard -

I tried the other cable with the same results. I also tried to unplug the hand mic from the radio , but RigPi reported an unknown error and wouldn't connect. Its looking like I need to sell the 857 and get something known to work.

First Run Experience #mfj-1234 #ic-7300 #quick-start

Bob <bob.fairbairn@...>
 

All,

The nice postman delivered my order today so I have the RigPi in house!

I hooked it up to my 27in 4K display and a Microsoft Sculpt keyboard and mouse.  I am using Ethernet for networking.  My radio is an Icom IC-7300.

The MFJ-1234 quick start guide is OK but I did need to read the groups.io pages about the IC-7300. Without that I would have been STUCK!  Thanks to all who have gone before me.

The Quickstart worked ok but I would HIGHLY suggest that part of the process should be an update check before configuration.  After following the directions from the IC-7300 thread the radio would still not connect.  About 5 minutes into reading and started the debugging process the RigPI told me there was an update.  POOF things are working locally.  

On my iMAC the RigPi.local worked first time.   So many things to test..

Mumble
WSJT-X
PiTunnel


I want to see if the basic logging in RigPi is "good enough"

I’m sure Bo will be saying thanks soon but let me toss mine in there too. Thanks, Howard. That works. 


Re: IC-7610 woes

Bo, to fix the Power On/Power Off problem in Hamlib for the 7610, select the IC-7300 instead of the IC-7610.  In Advanced Radio settings, change the Radio Name to IC-7610.  Change the CI-V from default to \0x98.  RigPi will think it is controlling a 7300 which does support P On/P Off, but the CAT controls are the same for both radios.

Let us know how that works for you.

Re: Computer headset and external VFO

Hi Mike,

RigPi has keystrokes that can be used to control PTT and tune frequency.

  • Up arrow, down arrow: tune selected digit up or down.
  • Left arrow, right arrow: select digit to tune.
  • +/-: tune selected digit up or down
  • Spacebar: PTT

Perhaps integration with the Griffin Power Mate (which appears to have been discontinued) will be fairly easy.

Re: TS 2000 no PTT

 

Hello Don,
I had a similar PTT problem with my TS-2000.  I'm not sure what fixed it since all I did was completely remove and do a new install of Mumble.  Follow all of the setup instructions as listed in the help instructions.  Be sure you accept the certificate when asked by the program.  I also changed the baud rate in the TS-2000 menu and the advanced radio settings to 57,600.  Also change the PTT to ON when transmitting while in the advanced radio screen.  I also remember changing Transmission setting to Voice Activated and adjust the Voice Activity Configuration in one of the Mumbles I installed.
Make the other changes Howard suggested and give it a try!  Can't hurt but might help???
Good luck,
Don

Re: How to connect Mumble to MFJ 1234. Kenwood TS 590s

Loic SM5VFE
 

Thank you. I will check above during weekend. 

I was out remote to try Rigpi and I noticed that I don´t have any modulation at all from my TS 590s. I have set all meny parameters in the PDF for Kenwood TS 590s. 

Anyone had this problem? 

Regards from Loic, SM5VFE


Re: mumble audio problems. Connected but no audio.

Loic SM5VFE
 

If I reboot with VLC Viewer then I cannot connect to anything. But If I reboot inside  Rigpi  then Mumble starts to give audio again. 
Interesting but I´m glad that I found this solution.

mumble audio problems. Connected but no audio.

Loic SM5VFE
 

Yesterday was working very good. Now I´m connected but no adio at remote computer. I have noticed this Before. 

Also I cannot connect via Wifi. Only via tc/ip Cable

Anyone know? 
Thanks in advance,

Re: FT8 and IC7300

Bo Barry <bobarr@...>
 

Ah, that explains why mine worked great. I haven't finished mumble setup so it was off. FT8  worked good.


Re: Configuring Mumble for radio CODEC audio with specifics for the Icom IC-7300

Bob <bob.fairbairn@...>
 

This is a great topic.  We should add hashtags to these to make finding them even faster.  #IC-7300??  

I will be testing this tomorrow when my RigPi arrives.

Re: Are the Signallink USB cables the same as the RigPi?

I have one for my FT818ND I want to use which I think is the one you are using.  My MFJ-1234 will be here tomorrow.  Time for the ohm meter!

Re: Are the Signallink USB cables the same as the RigPi?

Hi Bob,

I can't speak for all of them, but I can say that the MiniDIN6 version is the same, and the jumper block is too.
It is hard to say for certain about the rest as neither TigerTronics nor MFJ publish the wiring diagrams.

Which one are you thinking about using?

Are the Signallink USB cables the same as the RigPi?

I have a couple of Signallink cables for my radios and I was wondering if they are the same for the MFJ-1234?

Re: Computer headset and external VFO

Michael Foerster
 

The question gets to be if there is a keystroke that will increase and decrease the frequency (I.e.: Ctl-Up, Ctl-Down).

I have a Griffin Power Mate that I used with RemoteHams and basically you have to custom program it to the application to scroll as you turn the wheel (1 kHz), as well as when you press down (PTT), and press & turn (10khz).

As far as the headset goes, audio has to come out of the client device somewhere, either the built in speaker/mic or a headset.

i don’t have a RigPi yet, but I I’m learning...

Hi Bo,

After looking at the 7610 capabilities in RigPi Advanced Radio settings, I see that power off/on is not currently supported by Hamlib.  I'm surprised, but it is a feature I hope they will add.

Once you initialize the Keyer it will be happy.  It also works with a paddle even though you aren't using a radio.  (That's one thing the speed pot is for.)

I've owned two SB-200's through the years, nice amp!

Re: FT-857 No Audio

Jeffj51@...
 

Could MFJ have wired the cable incorrectly? I have another cable that I was using for a Signalink unit that I will try. 


Re: Computer headset and external VFO

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Loic,

If the computer/device you are using to connect to RigPi can accept a headset, it should work fine.  For example, Apple Earbuds that contain a Mic can be used for 2-way audio with an iPhone.  (I can use my hearing aids that way!)

It is possible with some amount of additional programming to use a USB tuning knob to control the RigPi frequency.
