Re: Mumble connected on audio

Good Morning to all:

ICOM-756PRO 3

I am up and running with the RigPi and Mumble in my LAN. I changed over to the
ACC 1 connection, Howard, and the corresponding adjustment required to the RigPi header. 
I was heard OK on the air. I expect little trouble making the adjustments over
to WAN, but just sitting back and contemplating the best approach since the Asus Router
doesn't seem to support port translation. I will look into port triggering to see if that
will offer some enhanced security similar to the port translation recommended here.

I DID NOT go into SSB Data Mode on the radio to transmit or receive voice. I will have
to research this as I am not sure why the manual states this and how the receive audio
would work in that mode (?). And a Macro will need to be set to push the radio into SSB data mode?

While reports say the audio out was OK, I wasn't impressed with the quality of the
receive audio: Is there anything authoritative I can go to on settings for Mumble?

Thanks to all on the forum.

Joe,

There is a very thorough guide that includes using RigPi with the IC-7300 in the files section.
It may be overly thorough, but all of the information is there:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/Homebrew%20Information%20from%20Users/RigPi%20Installation%20For%20Icom%20USB%20Radios.pdf

There is another guide too, with fewer details:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/Rig%20Configuration%20Information/ICOM/ICOM%20IC-7300%20Setup.pdf

There is also a thread by Howard at:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/message/442

There are a number of message threads on the IC-7300, you can find them using the search tool at the top if you use IC-7300 as the subject.
To answer your question directly would require a tad more info from you.
Which program are you asking about downloading?
If it is Plumble for the Android (that is the Android version of Mumble) you go to the Google Play store and download it from there.
Same for VNCviewer if that was what you are asking about.
Lots of folks ready to help.

I found it very simple, following the guide. About 20 minutes. Adjusting the router was more challenging but the guide also helped there too.
Did you Google and download the two free programs Mumble and a VNC viewer?    Passwords are in the guide.
It is a very fascinating, complex, versatile, enjoyable venture, but a headache for a Linux bumbler who makes a lot of mistakes and keeps going.
Howard is of great help if you specify your problem.

Re: Need help setting up different radios

Jan Blomquist / SM5SUH
 

This morning when I started everything again the ALSA input fail was gone so my guess is that the connection between RigPi and IC-7200 was lost for some reason.

 

But the problem with connect to Mumble is still there. When I change the password in the ini file I cannot connect to the Mumble server anymore (of course have I changed the password in the client) but when I change back to the default password in ini file and client it works again?

 

Anyone have a clue?

Finally I get hold of the command to save and quit the Mumble ini file.

I paste the file path command from Help in to the terminal.

Moved to the serverpassword as mentioned in help and change it.

Use Ctrl + O to write out and exit and after that I cant connect to the Mumble server at all.

When it start up this text is showing.

Re: Logs

Thanks, Howard,
One other item I did not report, but here it is as briefly as I can describe it.
I was able to see that I had created some other log files, though the field tabs are multiple, as I reported.
In addition, I logged in ten contacts in a log (General) for the “Route 66 on the Air” event.
Yet, when I open ANY LOG those same ten contacts populate the fields. Like the proverbial bad penny, they won’t go away.
If I delete one record the default seems to be to delete it from all logs.
Hmmm…

Jan,  It will be easier using Leafpad to edit files.  Do this in a terminal window.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install leafpad
Copy and paste the first line then press enter, copy and paste the second line and press enter.
To use Leafpad start the terminal window, This line is an example of the entry to start
Leafpad to then be able to edit the file. sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list
You use the full path to have Leafpad locate and open the file, when done you click on File
in the Menu then click Save.

Hi Jan,

I agree, reading dynamic output power level should be in Hamlib, but I’ve not found a radio for which that is provided.

Changing your user password for gaining access to RigPi is easy, go to SETTINGS>Users and click Edit on the account you want to change.  The Mumble password requires a file be edited.  How to find that file and what to change is provided in RigPi Help.

Having a few problems in trying to create a new log (format, etc.) in the web browser.
When I chose a field from the Master List (white area) and move it over to the left to the “Logbook Columns” (yellow area), I find the field to get replicated once more. In other words, when I move “His Call” over to the left, I have two “His Call” in the Logbook Columns list.
If I delete one, they both disappear. This happens with any field I have tried to move.

Anyone seen this?

As a part of my troubleshooting, where do I find the logbook configurations (file) saved on the Rigpi? I have explored the Rigpi desktop through FileManager and had no success. From with WSTJX I can see the logs for wsjtx.log and wsjtx_log.adi. There are other files there also, but none seem to relate to the Rigpi web browser.
I am surely missing something, but what?

Re: Need help setting up different radios

Jan Blomquist / SM5SUH
 

Howard, thanks for the info regarding power meter reading. This was news for me, my over ten-year-old free version of HRD support movements in all meter types so I was sure that a modern setup should support it also. Is this a common thing in Hamlib or is it just this little older radio that is not supported? Well I guess I must accept it so now I am going over to a bigger problem. As a user that never seen a Linux OS or a Pi, I have some problem with changing passwords, so I get some security. Maybe there is a step by step manual somewhere? I will start to look for it now as I understand the problem to have the RigPi out on internet with the default password that every RigPi owner or person that downloaded the manual knows.

 

Regards from Sweden.  Jan / SM5SUH

Hi Jan,

What you are seeing on the meter during Transmit is correct.  Hamlib does not support dynamic readings of power out, only a static max power out setting.  You can adjust the calibration of the meter in Transmit so it makes more sense.  Please see RigPi Help>Settings>Advanced Radio for details.

Re: Yaesu FTDX-1200 #mfj-1234

Jason KE0DQW
 

So right now at the moment this is how I have my radio connected.  
1.  Followed the standard instructions for setting up the RSS only difference was I chose the FTDX-5000 as my radio in the server.
2. For the audio at the moment I have one of these https://www.ebay.com/itm/2019-USB-linker-Adapter-for-YAESU-FT-450D-950D-DX1200-FT991-radio-connector-ICOM/192781550119?hash=item2ce2ad0227:g:hqIAAOSwOWdcLmqS
so I then connected the audio out from that to go to the RigPi.  I then also increased the settings in the radio for menu items 78 to 100 and 79 to 50 (default, might go higher not sure yet)

So I also ordered https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-FT-FT8-FT4-JT65-PSK-Audio-Interface-6-Pin-Mini-DIN-Cable-DC-11F-for-YAESU/163772517145?hash=item26219a4b19:g:SCEAAOSwnDpaI31s:sc:USPSFirstClass!80021!US!-1
since that splits out the audio from the din port for me and I can then use that instead of the box listed above. Also ordered from gigaparts the din to RJ45 cable as well as I experiment with this.   Right now I can say that the audio coming through is low and I'm hoping that once I get one of the cables and I can eliminate this man in the middle box for now that it will improve the audio for me.

So for the SCU-17 as I understand that is USB sound card and cat control all in one I don't see why you couldn't just plug that directly into the pi (I have my USB cat cable plugged into the pi that way) Let me know your thoughts.
