Yaesu FTDX-1200 #mfj-1234

Jason Hamilton
 

Just out of curiosity right now I'm setup to use the FTDX-5000 as my radio in the RSS but I was wondering if there is a better selection for the FTDX-1200?  Need to also find the additional macros that I can fill in for this.  Over all I am really enjoying this new flexibility of being able to use my radio like this. 

Re: New Files Added to Files section

I too have a FTdx-1200 and where can I find this file that you speak of?  I looked in the files section but I don't see anything that looks like a configuration file just a lot of pdfs.

I have got an ic-7300 working happily with it - they key is that there are so many settings to make sure are correct and lined up....

The problems I found were to do with settings. Settings that I changed and not saved, old settings that needed removing, non-aligned settings and conflict between different accounts after the same resources. Getting it to forget erroneous settings I found tricky.
All really to do with me not setting things up properly in the first place....
Also it is a computer, and if something else is running trying to use the same ports, or if one has it trying to do something over the Internet - and the Internet is not there - it of course causes problems.

I have it working with my FT-991A using one USB cable only.

From my view of the emails going back and forth, it seems that the ones that are quickly successful are the ones that get it working step by step, i.e., get the Pi up and running, get the RigPi software talking to the rig, get Mumble working on the Pi, then get it all working remote.

Great job, Howard and team!

What Rigs Do You Have Working with RigPI RSS? #poll

Larry McElhiney
 

Hi Folks,

Please respond to this poll by selecting the appropriate Manufacturer's name choices below.  

(Respond multiple times if you have successfully setup more than one rig from the same manufacturer.)

For example if you have RigPI RSS working with three rigs: 

  • ICOM IC-7100 and IC-7300 
  • Yaesu FT-991 
you would report one Poll response with ICOM and Yaesu selected and a second Poll response with just ICOM selected.

This reporting will allow a simple response without the need to input text.

Thanks,

Larry

There are a lot of different ways that it can be connected and configured on some radios.

And speaking of Tom, purely by coincidence I talked to Tom on 40 meters one afternoon last week.
I use a K3/KPA500/KAT500 with the RigPi and the connection is Analog for audio using 2 3.5mm cables between the radio and the RigPi.
The CAT control from the RigPi is via a FTDI USB-DB9 cable to the radio.

Here I have also used a TS-590S using only a single USB A-B cable.
In addition, I have used the FT-991A with a single USB A-B cable.

It works with practically every radio.  Many have been documented.  The biggest issue is that there are many ways to hook up to your transceiver and and all have some specific configuration based on how you select how to hook it up.  I have tested it on recent equipment Icom, yaesu, kenwood, and even have it working on a kenwood ts-570 which is probably 20 years old.

In addition to configuring it for your radio (radio menu settings must also be set for your configuration to match the rigpi) then you need to decide how you will use it.  Locally controlling a rig on your desk, or maybe controlling it across  your inhouse LAN, or even accessing it from outside your home via the internet.  All of these have to be configured to match what you want to do.

There is a lot of good help and experts on the rigpi forum and will help you to get yours going.

Re: "Username Must Be Unique" Problem

See second post about this problem.

"User Name Must Be Unique" Problem - MORE - Limit 5?

W4TZB Wayne
 

I went back and edited the 5th entry on my Accounts list using the data for the 6th entry that I was trying unsuccessfully to add, and it worked fine ... the User Name was not rejected.

So it is acting like the limit of accounts is a total of 5?

The manual section 1.8 says The maximum number of accounts/radios is limited by the computing resources of RSS. Tests have shown this limit to be 4 or 5 accounts/radios active at one time."   I suppose this is my problem, but I would have thought that "active" meant "connected".  Simply listing should not take resources.

"Username Must Be Unique" Problem

W4TZB Wayne
 

I have myself at Access Level 1 and 4 others with level 2 access and all work fine.   A total of 5 users.

They are active only one a time.

However when I try to add a 6th user, I get a message "User name must be unique" and then "not saved".

Strange because the User Name IS unique (it's a call sign) and I used pHpMyAdmin to look at the users list and there are only the 5 users shown.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Update to Buster, Mumble Config changed

Michael Foerster
 
Edited

I'm struggling with the Update from Stretch to Buster to support my R-Pi 4B.
  I did the update using a R-Pi 3B (not a +)

I used Win32DiskManager to backup the configuration as I went along.
   I was using a scratch 16GB SD card for the update. 

I went through the update yesterday (took a LONG time, like8+ hours, extremely slow download of wolfram-engine).
  The last lines of the update showed failures, so I had to re-run the update. (I did save the terminal output, but it's on the Buster config file save in the Win32DiskManager file.)
     Once I got into that, there was some configuration questions about Mumble, so I answered "yes" to letting it use the installer's configuration. 

Once I got through the second round, and the reboots, things looked OK, except that Mumble won't connect.
   I went back to the original configuration (Stretch) looking for a way to save the Mumble configuration, to be able to use it in the Buster version, but there is no save.
     Can I just use the /etc/mumble.server.ini and mumble.server.ini.dpkg-dist files (copy and put in the Buster config)?

I'm tempted to re-try the update.
   Any suggestions?

I have this feeling that this may just be the first of the problems that I need to resolve...

I did check and the update does run on my R-Pi 4B.

Re: Mumble connected on audio

Howard:
Thanks for clearing me up. I was on the wrong side of the board.
Yes, I have checked with the meter and I have a good connection from Pin 7
on the board to Pin 8 on the mic connector. That is with the jumper block in place.

Anything else I can/need to check.

Thanks

Herb, here is a photo showing pin 6, which is the PTT connection.  The Mic connection is pin 7, as marked on the "top" side of the board.

Re: unable to use no-ip.com anymore

Well configured DNS proxies really can tell what IP you are on, even if no-ip.com is botching this. You should not need a static IP.

The Raspberry Pi is perfectly capable of using IPV6 as well.

Don and Bruce thanks for your help. Don I didn't get to try your approach as Bruce's worked with the serial cable and driver. I haven't gotten into audio and CW yet. I am sure that will be fun :(
