Icom IC-7100 and IC-7300 on same rig pi? #ic-7300 #ic-7100 #icom #multiple

John C Sauer
 

I have two Icom radios. I would like to connect both to the same rigpi if possible.
The 7300 has a Timewave Navigator modem/sound card/keyed for its communications.  The 7100 has a DigiMaster Pro 3 modem/sound card / keyed. 

Because the sound card/modem functions are taken care of, is it possible to control both radios on one rigpi, either simultaneously or separately?

thanks in advance

Wouldn't the audio board work?  Why a signalink?

Hello all,

I wanted to pick your brains a little, I hope you don't mind.

I have been in here reading about the RigPi, which as an older IT guy is insanely interesting to me.  However I want to jump into digital, and it brings up a serious question.  I can go down the path of something like a signalink and software, or I can put the money towards a RigPi and get some extra utility, especially when travel goes back to being my normal life (pre-sales security architect for IT, so I normally commercially fly and cover North America).  

So my question to you all is... would you recommend buying the RigPi as it sits, and use it to dip into digital, or would you start with just digital and hold off on a iRigPi?

Any thoughts, concerns, or keep in mind I should have?

Thanks all!

Hi Howard

I changed Plumble from PTT to continuous and all works.
Thankyou for your help and what a fantastic device. Keep up the great work.

thanks David ZL2BA

The dropouts are on receive. I'm transmitting from the home shack with a different rig. I'm receiving with the RigPi and IC-7300, which are 8 mi away in a neighborhood that has a lower noise environment. The dropouts occur over both LAN and WAN. 

Thanks for the help

Hi David,

Even though there is a PTT feature on Plumble, it is not connected to RigPi PTT.  That means you always have to use a browser to control PTT.  The Transmission option in Plumble should be set to Continuous so Plumble PTT is "always on."

Hi Bob,

Disconnect Radio is not required when you close a browser.  The radio remains connected to any remaining browsers, if present.

Are the audio dropouts on receive or transmit?  When you are connected locally through the LAN or when away from home?

The cable should be fine unless it is intermittent in some way.

Hi Howard, My radio is the Icom IC-7300, connected via USB cable. This problem hasn't occurred the last couple days. I set up the rig and RigPi according to "RigPi Installation for Icom IC-7100 & IC-7300 Transceivers". Should I be doing a "Disconnect Radio" command before closing the control web page? BTW, I get momentary audio dropouts every now and then, any suggestions? Another BTW, my USB cable is old, Do I need one that is certified for USB 3.0? 

Thanks in advance

Hi Howard,
thanks for getting back to me.
Yes I can use the PTT on the web page and it works ok no audio out to radio but can receive as Plumble is also running. If I use Plumble alone, the PTT does not work. If I use 2 phones and use the web page on one to activate the PTT then use Plumble on the other and activate the PTT, audio will come out on the radio so there is a path through. I am so close. And yes I am using the dummy radio.

Thanks David ZL2BA

Hi MisterSteve,

Go to Advanced Radio settings and put a check in “Disable Split Polling” and you will be all set.  Restart the radio connection.

ic-7100 screen flickers when connected to RigPi

MisterSteve
 

I recently was able to get everything connected. Today I was testing the rig control features of RSS and found after connecting to the ic 7100, the screen started flickering back and forth showing the settings of VFO b.
It stops after disconnecting the radio.

Anybody seen anything like this?

Hi David,

PTT comes from the remote browser, not from Plumble or Mumble.  You can set up the Hamlib Dummy radio in RigPi, then connect from your remote device.  Assuming you have thre PTT settings correct, you should be all set.

Re: Basic concept running cw

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Les is correct, take a look at RigPi Help in the Getting Started section.  It is also available in the RigPi Help menu.  In summary, remote connections are through any browser, no special or additional software required.  CW is sent via Macros on the Tuner or from the Keyer window with Macros or by typing.  If you are looking for remote CW using a paddle or straight key, that is a feature in the upcoming RigPi 2, currently in Beta.

Hi Bob,

The problem you describe can be caused by not properly disconnecting the radio when you exit.  Please tell us which radio you are using.

Re: What happens to VNC when RigPi reboots?

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Bob,

You will need to include TightVNC in the code that runs when you reboot.  But I’m wondering why you are using TightVNC when RealVNC is installed and running on RigPi.  The RealVNC server is restarted when you reboot.

Hi
I am new to remote operations using Rigpi and struggles to find a schematic overview showing the overall concept when you wants to run cw from a remote client. Need a top down approach showing my rig - connection to RigPI server - The RigPIServer - the connection to client side - the client - the clients cw equipment - all this supported with a list of software involved. Anyone that knows where to find such information?

Howard, I need to reset my new unit that just came form MFJ as an apparent return from someone else. It has a user name and password that is not the default. I don't want to hunt around and try to fix this, I would just like to reimage the SD card and set the Pi to all default O/S settings. Can you provide me with the steps and the image and O/S version that is needed so that I can cleanse it? I use many Pi devices now for a variety of reasons.........

Re: RIgPi setup for ICOM IC-706MKIIG

Larry,

What cable are you using for CI-V CAT control?
The cables you have do not handle the communications with the radio, as the USB to CI-V cable will do that.
