Re: Logs

Leslie Loftin
 

Mark,
Thanks for your advice. Log export and import is not the real problem. The thread started with a question about creating a new log.
Here briefly, is what happens. When I attempt to create a new log in a browser (Mac: Safari and Firefox, PC: Microsoft Edge) and I move items from the Master List to the Logbook Columns, many but not all items moved replicate themselves from two to ten times. “Callsign” is particularly bad. So my screen looks something like this:

    Logbook Columns                  Master List        Editor Fields

| Callsign                             <-> Amplifer           | His Street
        | Callsign                             <-> Band                | His City
                                                    <-> Callsign           | His County

I clicked on the Master List item “Callsign” and drug (dragged) it over to the Logbook Columns section.
And presto! I get two Callsign boxes (Fields), when only one is needed or wanted. If I click on one to delete it, they both disappear.
The same thing happens if I drag the Callsign to the Editor Fields.
Here is part of the oddity, in the Master List there are numerous fields from which to choose. “Callsign” will duplicate. “Band” will duplicate. “Club” will NOT duplicate. “His City” will duplicate.

Howard was trying to get me to reload a fresh log setup for the browser Pi log screen and that is where I got lost.
Okay, that was long. Hope you don’t have eye strain.

Les,

The export/import is done under LOG and is in the top right of the LOG screen.
It looks like Howard suggested that, first you export your current log and then proceed to import a fresh log.
Take a look there and see if that is more clear, and fyi, import is at the bottom of that drop down, it isn't visible unless you go lower in the selection window.

Hi Howard, 
Ok I will try this and see if this solve my problems. I thought if memory the card is correpted then a copy will cause the same problem again. 
Glad this could be a solution.

Joe, you can control RigPi from the browser on your Android phone.  For VoIP, look for Plumble on the Google Play store.  Plumble is the Android equivalent of Mumble, it is free.

Loic, in the Raspberry Pi menu, select Accessories>SD Card Copier.  You can use that utility to create a backup of your existing memory card.  This has been discussed before on the forum, so look for further information using the forum Search function.  You can also use google for detailed instructions.

Re: Logs

Hi Les,

Mark is correct about exporting your log from RigPi via ADIF.  In this case I'm suggesting a deeper dive to solve the problem, the use of PHPMyAdmin and its Export function.  You can open phpMyAdmin from the Raspberry Pi desktop Programming menu, username root, password 7388.  Select station in the list on the left.  Select Export then Go.  You will create a backup of all databases.  Please send me a copy by private email.

Re: Logging for a dummy?

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Carl,

WSJT-X maintains two log files, one in .CSV as you've noted. and a second in ADIF format which can be imported into 99% of other logging programs.  There are also ADIF utilities that can provide other formats.  Look for wsjtx_log.adi.  For more information, see the WSJT-X Help file found here:  http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx-doc/wsjtx-main-2.0.0.html

Look for section 11 on Logging.

Re: Mumble on MAC (levels?) #ic-7300

Hi Frank,

Mumble on a Mac is similar to what you see on the Raspberry Pi desktop.  In the Mac's System Preferences>Audio, make sure the Internal Mic is selected if that is what you want to use.  In Mumble, open the Audio Input settings from the Configure menu and put a check in the Advanced checkbox at the top. Audio Input is from your Mic.  Select Built-in Microphone for the Device, and temporarily select Voice Activity for Transmit.  Set the Noise Suppression slider to off.  Click Apply and you should see the bar graph react to your voice.  That should do it, you can also tweak levels if necessary.

Set Transmit to Continuous.  After any change in Mumble, click Apply then OK.  Restart Mumble on the Mac desktop to save the changes.

Logging for a dummy?

Carl Estey
 

I have WSJT-X v2.0.1 running from the applications>Hamradio>WSJT window on my RigPi.  I can see that all of my QSO's have been logged if I go to File>Open log directory and open the wsjt.log file.  The data appears to be in .CSV format.  How do I manage this data to print or sort?  I have an external USB keyboard, USB mouse, and HDMI monitor connected to the RigPi.  Can anyone give me the steps to print this data.  If I had Excel on the Pi I would know how to read the file and could then print it, however without Excel and unfamiliar with the resources available on the RPi, I am at a loss as to how to do this.

BTW, I am having a ball on FT8 using a IC-7300 and wire antennas.

Mumble on MAC (levels?) #ic-7300

kg9hfrank@gmail.com <kg9hfrank@...>
 

So I have mumble running on my iPhone works/sounds excellent!

Installed mumble on MAC and cannot figure it out.
I can hear signals but no mic audio transmit.
It isn't in the System Preferences > Sound

Anyone?

Re: Logs

Ok, Howard,
I am in over my head.
I found the three files inside /var/www/html/Databases (fcc_amateur.sql, index.php and station.sql).
I assume the “station.sql” is the only import I need to make, but where does it go? How and where does it get imported?

I am not familiar with phpMyAdmin, so I may skip that part for now.
I do have a backup of the SD card and the log files that I may need for Route 66. Nothing else matters much.
I believe I will try a clean set of tables if I can figure out all the paths.
 
Thanks for your help. I’ll let you know what happens.

Hi Les,

The problem I was having yesterday was caused by my use of a RigPi image that had its own problems.  Using the production image, I'm not seeing what you have reported. There are several ways we can figure out what is happening.

1) If you are comfortable using phpMyAdmin, you can export the Logbook, LogFields and LogStyles tables to sql format and send them to me?  My guess is that the LogStyles database may contain errors that are causing the log designer problem.  

2) There is a clean set of tables in /var/www/html/Databases folder.  You can import these tables which will overwrite all your existing data.  Be sure to export your existing station database first!

3) If you have a backup of your memory card, you can try using that to see if the problem exists.

Re: Stretch to Buster

Aaron Jones
 

Hi,

i upgraded from stretch to buster a couple months back and ran into a few problems.  This is roughly how I did it, I can post the Linux commands later tonight when I’m on my computer:

1. Ran the update scripts published on the web
2. Created two partitions on a new SD card so I could have a bigger BOOT partition.  It is a LOT easier to crest it at 500 meg from scratch than to try to resize a boot partition
3 copied the contents of the boot partition in old card to new card
4. Mirrored the second partition over to my new card and then Resized it using gparted on another Linux box

i had to fix a couple little things in the boot partition like the partition reference of my new card.  

I had to reinstall mumble with a new version but it worked perfectly and all rigpi software was fine. 

I also moved my second partition to an external SSD and this rpi4 is FAST.

Has anyone successfully upgraded from Stretch to Buster that could point me in the right direction? I googled of course and found a couple of methods, but neither worked out well for me. 
Thanks in advance,

Hi John,

From RigPi you can shut down processing, but not power.  There are power switching devices that can be switched on and off from the Internet independent of RigPi.  Take a look at Wemo devices, for example.

Re: Mumble connected on audio

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Herb,

Check two things that can affect audio quality: 1) make sure you have set the snd proto device for the default audio device by right-clicking the speaker icon on the Raspberry Pi desktop, and, 2) look in Mumble Configure>Settings>Audio Input to make sure the noise reduction slider is all the way to the left (off).  If you make changes to Mumble, click apply then OK at the bottom of the settings window, then restart Mumble to have the settings stick.

Just FYI,

My FT-991A used menu item 106 (instead of 108) for SSB usage, and 109 (instead of 111) for the USB setting.
