Howard,
   Thanks very much. I have it running on my Android and I only could find Plumble-Mumble not just Mumble. I have it working the radio but not the audio on the cell. I will have to go back into my settings and hopefully this Plumble-Mumble will work. Thanks if I can't get this audio I will check around for solutions or ask again. Thanks in advance. You have made a great product.

Hi Herb,

You should be able to use RigPi Hub (https://rigpi.net) to connect the ARCP program to RigPi.  RigPi Hub runs on a PC and looks like a Kenwood radio to other programs.  RigPi Hub only provides a small set of available commands, including frequency, split frequency, split mode, PTT and s-meter.

Robin, look in RigPi Help for instructions on using Alsamixer to set the levels for the RigPi Audio board.

Hi Allen,

Test first on your local network.  Download and install Plumble (Mumble for Android) from the Google Play store for audio.  To connect to RigPi to control your radio, open a browser on your phone.  Use the RigPi LAN address as found in RigPi System settings.

Hi Walter,

I’m waiting for the new Hamlib 4.0 beta to settle down.  So far the latest Beta is looking good.

The image will use Buster, and has been extensively tested on the Raspberry Pi 4B (and will run fine on earlier Pi’s).

Howard:
I am wondering about using the PigPi as a server on the radio side for the Kenwood program, either ARCP-590 or ARCP-990.
This would be ideal for my remote operations.

Hi Larry -

Glad that helped some.  My theory is that redirecting to /dev/null for the log takes some of the read/write load off of the microSD card.  I believe I/O contention on that card is what causes the problem.  One experiment to try is to just listen to the audio with Mumble with other apps (RSS, WSJT-X, etc.) off.  If you still have audio problems, then I suspect something else is going on.  I know I also replaced the microSDHC in my RigPi with a SanDisk UltraPlus 32 GByte.  The error log redirection and the  microSD  (which had I/O specs that were better than the original SD) got rid of pops, watery sound, etc., when running RSS at the same time for me.  If you have other things running on the RigPi at the same time as Mumble and RSS, it would not surprise me if the problem returns.  Its a Raspberry Pi 3+, so bandwidth to the microSD is modest.

Should also mention that I run my control and audio through USB ... if you are going through the RigPi sound card, maybe that is something to also consider.  I don't know much about the sound card given my set-up, but have seen postings about it for more optimal settings.

Is there an updated RigPi Operating System yet?

Walter
 

Has an updated RigPi operating system been released yet?  I believe a Beta was being tested.

Also, has an image for the Pi4B been released yet?  I have been waiting for both of these.

Hi Bob, 
Do you use wifi or Ethernet cable between radio and RigPi? 
I had problem when I used wifi.

Howard,
   I have my rigpi controlling my 7300 was  not that bad. I now am trying to see what I need to do to get the android to operate the rigpi?

Ok...I checked everything and rest my radio. I was able to make a local contact on 40M. I was told my audio is light. And I noticed my ALC wasnt very high eithet. Only three or four lights. I increased my Mic Gain...no help. Tnx

random receive audio dropouts

ND9Bmgb@...
 

I'm experiencing momentary random audio dropouts on receive. Can this be improved by changing some settings? I don't know what my internet speed is, but it's fast enough to play HD streaming video with no problems (at both locations).

Hi Bob, 

You are on the correct track but just need to go a bit further. 
I'll go through it for you but here are the Topic Numbers for IC706MK2G related posts. 
4861, 5004, 5209, 5013, 5295 

The MFJ5713DI cable is correct for the audio, the PTT needs a little work to make it happen you will find info 
on that in a couple of the posts. Don forget to install the little jumper board that came with the cable assembly. 

If your CI-V interface works with the PC, it should work with your 1234. 
Launch WSJT -> Go to Settings -> go to Radio -. Select Rig "ICOM IC706MK2G" 
In CAT Control - Pick the USB Port that your USB to CI-V Converter is assigned. 
then Hit Test. 
PTT will be your next challenge. info on that is can be found in posts 5295, and 5209. 

For the Audio 
Go to Settings > Audio - Select for both Input and output "sysdefaultCARD=sndrpiproto" 

The 706MK2G and 1234 work very well using WSJT. Using the Remote Desktop app, VNC, 
you can run WSJT on the system from your PC remotely. 

FLDigi can be used without any PTT modifications and USB to rs232 converter to use DTR. 
GPI/O17 (MFJ1234 PTT with the 5713DI Audio/PTT cable) can be selected to assert PTT  

Hope this helps
Andy

Thank you Howard,

That is exactly what I want to do, control the Flex via the pc running Power SDR

Hi Carl,

Hamlib, the library used in RigPi to control radios, has the FlexRadio 6xxx and SDR-1000 in the list.  However, there is much more to controlling Flex radios than rig control, which requires a PC.  If you want to control a radio via PowerSDR running on a PC, you might be able use RigPi Hub (https://rigpi.net) which provides a way for basic radio control from a Windows program.

Hi Howard, 
I did google my provider and It seems that you are right about blocking ports. I will check another provider with possibility to have static ip adress.

Re: Using Rigpi as serial/usb pass-through with Icom RS-BA1. #rigpi #ic-7300

Hi Michael,

You are correct, RigPi Hub uses Kenwood protocol CAT commands to provide basic RigPi radio control from a Windows program.  The Windows program must support Kenwood radios.   At the RigPi end the Kenwood commands are converted into Hamlib commands to support just about any radio.

I've seen articles on creating virtual serial IP ports, you might give Google a try.

Re: Remoting an SDR Play RSPdx

Hi Larry,

I don't see any reason why you can't control an SDR Play with RigPi. I do know there is a complete image for SDR Play, but of course that wouldn't be compatible with RigPi.  Here is an article that is a promising solution for RigPi:

Re: Dyndns and mobile broadband

Loic, is there a chance your ISP for your remote Internet service may be blocking ports?  You may have to use port translation in your router and use non-standard ports if that is the case.
