Re: Mumble

Kelehigh@...
 

Howard,

Is what you write for the ICOM IC-7100 apply to the IC-718 as well? I haven't been able to get sound out of my Rigpi and/or cell phone although everything appears to be set up correctly on both the radio and RigPi, and it appears that my splash screens match what is shown in your extended notes for both my iphones 6s+/7. I change the frequency on either iphone and the frequency changes on the radio, etc. However, I get am getting no sound out either at the RigPi or the iphones.

Your thoughts?

73, Kevin Lehigh KJ7EHQ

It sounds like you are close to having it work otherwise, except for

plug a set of earbuds into the TX OUT connector on RigPi to see if you
hear iPhone audio there. On the iPhone confirm that use of the Mic by
Mumble is permitted in settings. If the Mumble lips on RigPi for the
iPhone are not red, confirm that you have Transmission in Mumble on
the iPhone set to Continuous.

Re: PTT keying for rigs that do not have CAT command

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Gary,

RigPi supports hardware PTT in addition to PTT via CAT.  When you use PTT from your iPad, the red LED on the RigPi side should light.  If it does, you are all set with hardware PTT. 

The Audio RJ45 connector has a PTT connection that should toggle PTT on the radio through the DIN connector.  If that isn't happening, there are several trouble shooting steps you can take.  If you have a multimeter you can check the PTT pin on the audio daughter board to confirm that it is switching with PTT.

Re: MFJ-5708P Cable

Hi Robert,

Here is an article describing how to connect CAT and audio to the 756 PRO III, by Harold, W5ZZT:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/Rig%20Configuration%20Information/ICOM/ICOM%20IC-756%20Pro%20and%20Pro%20III.pdf

Here are details on the MJF cable connections at the RJ-45 end:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/RigPi%20Documentation/audiodipconnections.pdf

The  RX IN and TX OUT 3.5 mm connectors can be used for audio in lieu of the RJ-45 cable.  You can connect TX OUT to your mic connector and RX IN to the 756 audio out instead of wiring a cable for thee RJ-45.

Maybe take a look at this message:


This sounds like you don't need the MFJ sound board, and just plug in your 7100 USB??

Use the sound board for VHF maybe (other purpose).

Welcome to the forum.

If anyone has a similar configuration as you, they will probably
respond quickly. Maybe describe your setup.

Pretend we don't know anything about your configuration and setup.

You can see where I started the mumble client on the rigpi (168.168.2.91) @ 23:51:10; my iPhone connected (192.168.3.6) @ 23:51:22 and kicked off the rigpi; and finally you can see where the rigpi reconnected (on it's own) again; disconnecting the iPhone.

I added the line breaks for clarity.

Re: PTT keying for rigs that do not have CAT command

KT7AZ
 

i have set up the RigPI for the IC-718 by creating connection between the icom 13 pin connector and the RJ45 to RigPi.  I have also built a jumper carrier to proper settings for RX TX and PTT.  I do here audio now from radio via mumble on my iPad.  

My problem is I cannot key remotely.

i know that the IC-718 ci-v does not support PTT and from reading the groups io I am not following how to do this.  I see that using rigctl was mentioned but do not see how to do that.

Thanks

Re: Copy an SSD to an SD-card

Good thought, but I do not have a Linux box (Ubuntu) at hand...

I have Mac computers, though, and as such, I can run EMULATION APPS that allow me to run all kinds of operating systems.  The key thing needed would be that these emulated apps would need to address and use the PORTS in the proper manner!

So, THANK YOU; -This will be an option!

Contact them and they'll give you a warrant replacement. At least they

The problem is, the RigPi specific software is not in a form that is
separate from the OS and all the other modules. Thus you end up having
to download a 16 Gig image (compressed hopefully). Easier just to ask
for a replacement.

I can give you a ZIP or TAR of the boot sector (17 Meg). That part is
not proprietary as it is standard Raspian.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/bt7l67xj7zgcvzb/rigpi-boot.zip

But you would have to be able to mount the SD card at least. Then
overwrite the files. The boot mount is just a FAT drive.

But if the EXT4 linux partition is corrupt also, it may not solve your problem.

Re: Copy an SSD to an SD-card

Steve Sampson
 

Once I create a dd image I compress it using bzip2 and store it on my NAS.

re:

sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=backup.img bs=512M

Re: Copy an SSD to an SD-card

Steve Sampson
 

If you plug the SSD into a Linux box (Ubuntu) it will generally be
mounted automatically.

What you can do then is unmount it, noting what device it is using
/dev/sdb for example, and then us dd to create an image:

sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=backup.img bs=512M

Usually I use "gparted" to look at and unmount the partitions and then
run dd. That way the /dev/sdb mount point is still there.

Some time ago, I purchased a small SSD, and plugged this into my Raspberry PI that was being run by the MFJ-1234's SD card.

Using the ACCESSORIES/SD CARD COPIER app that is part of the above package, I copied the MFJ-1234's SD card to the new USB-attached SSD. I then shut it all down and removed the SD-card, then booted the Raspberry PI (and RigPI) successfully, booting from the new SSD. I have found that the SSD is indeed noticeably quicker, so I really do LIKE this environment.

Using the Raspberry PI, booted from the SSD, I attempted to copy the SSD to a blank SD card. This failed. (Sorry, but I cannot recall the reason...)

My question: Is it possible to copy an SSD to a SD-card? If not, how can I back up the SSD? (Can I attach another hard drive to an open port on the Raspberry PI computer..? -Should I get a second USB-based SSD??)
