Re: Need help setting up ic7300

I live down the road near Concord, willing to help.
Retired and hate to travel tho.
I used to charge $25/hr for travel and $50/hr when I had to think hard.
Had a good time part-time consulting while a professor at UNCC.
Retirement is lots more fun.

I have my system on an IC-7610 going (had it on a 7300 earlier).
Raspberry pi is a BEAR for beginners, unless you are lucky.
I'll do what I can. I have a condensed how-to somewhere. I'll look for it.

Password with #

Thomas Tumino
 

So I changed my RSS login username to something with a # in it and I did the same with the RSS login password.

Now the RSS is not rejecting my username and password, but it isnt logging me in either.  It processes and keeps me at the login page.

Any way to fix this without starting from scratch and blanking out the SD card with the backed version.

73 to all,

unable to use no-ip.com anymore

Orrin Winton <orrin.winton@...>
 

Hi folks, back a couple years i successfully set up Port Forwarding and was using no-ip.com, so i could view some of my radio-related apps/tasks from outside my home network.

Then it stopped working, and i found out from the tech support at Zito Media that they changed the way they route traffic. Someone told me i had been "NATed" but i don't fully understand that.

The result: when i run the DUC app, to inform no-ip.com of my current IP address, the address it advertises cannot be used by no-ip.com to let me in from 'outside.'

The advertised IP might be something like 64.28.63.80 (fictional) but my router says i'm 100.xx.xx.xx in Zito's internal network. 

A higher-skilled tech supervisor at Zito told me the solution for me would be to pay a higher fee to get a static IP, and also i'd have to supply my own router to go with their modem.

Is there any other solution available in order to use the RigPi? Thanks from NE Calif 73 de WN1Z

Orrin.

Hi Howard, 
I´m waiting a new Power Supply. I will try within a few Days.

Loic, as Bruce mentioned, any blinking by the red power LED on the Raspberry Pi indicates power supply trouble with unpredictable results.

Re: Ideal Bandwidth?

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

HI Tom,

The main bandwidth consumer for SSB and CW is Mumble, the VoIP program.  You have control over audio quality which affects bandwidth, but less than 100KB/s is a good estimate.  Digital modes require using VNC, but not VoIP.  With VNC you can control the consumed bandwidth by adjusting the quality/resolution of the Desktop display.

The latest Raspberry Pi operating systems have embedded Internet time lookup which is accurate enough to satisfy FT8.  If you will be using RigPi away from the Internet, some other form of time keeping would be required, such as GPS.

Ideal Bandwidth?

Thomas Tumino
 

So can someone tell a newbie what the ideal network  bandwidth is for a RigPi if I want to run everything—digital, voice and cw?

Also, how does the RSS get time sync for ft-8 with wsjt-x?  Can a gps be connected for time sync?  

73,
Tom, N2YTF

Need help setting up different radios

Chris Knox <ki1p.k1vit@...>
 

I just got my first rig pi on its way.  Is there anyone who might be willing to help me through setting it up?  I have many radios that I would like to hook up but my two priorities would be an Icom 7200 and a Flex 1500.  Does anyone have experience with either of these radios?

Hi Bruce, 
At first I used 5xUSB powersupply 6,8 amp. But could be broken maybe I don´t know. 
With Power supply number two. I use a 2,5 amp and get above blinking.

Loic,  The Red LED on the PI board is the power indicator and it must remain on
all of the time the unit is running.  If it blinks it indicates your power supply
is not delivering enough current.  These PI's require a minimum of 2.5 amps
but preferably 3 amps especially since there are daughter boards plugged into
this PI (keyer, audio).
Are you seeing a Yellow lightning bolt in the upper right corner, if so that is another
indicator of voltage sag due to not enough current.

Does the red power light blink?  Is the activity light green?  There is a possibility the memory card has been corrupted if the power supply is marginal.

I tried another Power supply. The tone is still there at startup.

Loic, the red power light should never blink. Do you have another power supply you can try?

Hi Howard, 
Thank you. 
I don´t know where the sound is from but I don´t hear CW R at boot up of RigPi. I hear a 30 seconds like a warning tone. 
When powering up RigPi. Red Power light next to the green is blinking and when RigPI is on both leds are red. 

I entered on Macro 25 *0w RX;
I entered on Macro 26 *0w \0x52\0x58\0x3B ( The ptt is not working any better)

Re: Rigpi ptt led stop lighting up. Kenwood TS 590s

Hi Loic,

Is the tone from the Keyer?  When you power up RigPi, you should hear the CW ‘R’ character to indicate that the Keyer is alive and well.  Do you hear that?  You previously said the Red Keyer PTT light no longer works, is the light on during the long tone?

As RigPi is booting, does the red power light blink at all (is it on continuously)?

You created a macro *0w RX;.  In place of *0w RX;, enter the following macro as it is shown here:  *0w \0x52\0x58\0x3B. (no period at end) Is this more stable?

For the radio instability, please go to Advanced Radio settings.  Click Disconnect Radio.  Then click the Test button.  Please send along a copy of the report.  (If you set up a second account for the same radio, make sure the port for that radio is set to None.)

—Howard


Re: RigPi version 1.05 available

 

When will 1.06 be available with the updated macro  commands?

Howard, 
The 30 seconds  tone is when I power on RigPi. Tone is coming from RigPi not from the radio.

I have only the admin account now and radio start to change between 28.500 MHz and 0000000. Not stable at all. 

But now *0w RX; Ptt off. Works a few CQ calls then PTT (*0w RX.) doesn´t work anymore.     Normal PTT in acount doesn´t work. Cannot turn off PTT. 

Your above text I really don´t how to use it.

Loic, several of the Kenwood radios require Hex codes to be used in macros rather than ascii.  For the *w RX; macro, please try *w \0x52\0x58\0x3B. This format would also apply to *w TX1;, use the Hex equivalents.
