Re: Can't duplicate SD card

Steve Sampson
 

You can probably use "gparted" and reduce the size of the partition.

The way I build an SD card is using my Ubuntu workstation. After
copying my image onto the SD Card using "dd" I then remove and
reinsert the SD card, and run "gparted". Then I create a new partition
of the remaining space. That way, the RPi doesn't try to outsmart me
and expand the partition behind my back.

There's some discussion how the Raspberry Pi tries to manage this for
the student type target population:

Hi,
I use the program for backup that comes with the RigPi! Works fine and is easy.
Just look in the help section.
You use a USB converter that comes with some of the discs that you buy.
Plug it in, run the program and you're done.
Also, use a larger disc, at least 32GB.

Robin, please take a look at the message I just sent A few minutes ago on troubleshooting audio to your radio.  There is also much info here on the forum for the Pro III, including in the files section.  If none of those sources are helpful, let us know so we can figure out what is happening.

Re: Seeking perspective

Perry Ogletree
 

I believe the FTdx1200 has a 9-pin serial port for CAT control (it’s been awhile since I had one). If that’s correct, you’d need a serial RS-232 to USB adapter. Most are short cables with a USB “A” on one end and a 9-pin “DE” (some call them “DB” but that’s incorrect) connector on the other end. You may still need an extension cable to reach the rig. You can extend either end – on the USB side with a male USB “A” to a female USB “A” cable, or with a straight through DE-9 cable (with gender as needed) on the RS-232 serial side.

If the dx1200 has another type connector, as I’ve slept many times since I had that rig in my hands, let me know and I can guide you.

The Signalink will work fine for most digital modes with the only possible exception being the “new” (to Hams) M110A and ALE modes. Even that can be overcome with modifications of the Signalink.

Perry, It looks like I have two separate issues here, and I didn’t ask all the right questions. My first interest is data comm, like FT8. I believe I can do that without the SCU-17. My second interest will be remote control and, judging from your comments, the SignaLink USB doesn’t cover all that is needed. Since I own a SignaLink USB, what else do I need to handle remote control, say, with the MFJ RigPi?

Thanks in advance,

The Signalink folks are WRONG. The Signalink USB only does the audio portion of the SCU-17, it does NOT give you CAT control which is also needed. The SCU-17 does both.

Hi Stuart,

Most of the few FTdx1200 postings I’ve seen are related to the requirement for the SCU17 interface since the radio doesn’t have a USB interface.  There are folks here on the forum that can help overcome any speed bumps you may encounter.

RigPi will work well in your situation which is made easier by your using it while at home.

Has anyone in the group interfaces to the EA4TX rotor controller?  I am in the process of connecting my TS590SG along and the EA4TX rotor controller for my ham4 rotor.  
Any help would be appreciated!

I have downloaded the great 1 pager TS590SG document done by K8MHW, K6RPT, KX4IB.  Thank you for that!

Re: CW via paddles on the remote end?

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Jay,

The software used to perform the keying is for the Raspberry Pi.  GPIO pins on the RPi interface with the RigPi Keyer boards and the network connection in the RPi is used to transfer data.  That said, two Keyer boards are required, one for the radio end and one for the remote end.  There is no need for a PC in the process.

Re: yet another no audio from Icom 7300 - Mumble won't connect to server #ic-7300

Tom Thomas <w7tct@...>
 

I just found this tidbit from Howard:

Do NOT use SuperUser as an account in Mumble.  SuperUser does not provide audio, it is only used for Mumble management purposes.  Keep Transmission set to Continuous in Mumble unless testing.  The pi account (pi is the default account for the RPi Mumble) lips should be red.

I was using SuperUser to make sure that I had all the permissions in play to add users and, hopefully, get the connections in place.

I reconnected the server to the pi account and all was well. I got connected from my mac and have sound.

Whew, several hours but it is working now. Yay!

Hi Tom,

Have you configured the pi Mumble client to transmit continuously?  Just a quick thought.

Howard,
I do not have two of the RigPi keyer boards but do have two WKUSB units. Do I need RigPi keyer boards?  I am still in the process of setting my RigPi up completely, but working on each piece separately - rig control now working with an FT817 that is mated with a TenTec 418 amp.  Now understand Murmur and audio seems OK.  My next step would be CW.  I have extra PC to dedicate to this project.  Let me know how we should proceed from here.

I have this close, I think. Last step is how to get the audio from the Mumble server to the connected client. Neither macbook or ipad has sound from the rigpi.

How do I get the passthrough setup?

Hi Jay,

We'd love to have your help!  If you already have two keyer boards let me know and I'll send details.

Although I haven't tried WKRemote with RigPi, it may work.  There are two downsides to WKRemote.  You need to have a PC at the remote end, and many have commented on the lag with WKRemote.  RigPi remote uses element based transfer via interrupts so the lag is typically less than 10 ms.
