Hi Howard et al,


I recently purchased a RigPi for my ICom-7600.  So, I’m now able to connect to my radio with a laptop via the internet.  Unfortunately, I’m unable to get Mumble working.  When I boot-up RigPi, I see on RigPi’s monitor that Mumble starts and connects successfully.  When I try to connect with Mumble from my laptop, though, I get the return: “Connecting To Server rigpi.local, Connected, Server Connection Rejected, Wrong Password.”


Actually, Mumble never asks for my password; it only asks for my username.  I’ve probably made a setup mistake somewhere but need help now.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  


Thanks and 73s,

Re: interfering 80 meterband

Hi Harry,

Several users have reported noise problems from an HDMI cable connected to the Raspberry Pi.  If you have a monitor connected, try disconnecting the cable.  You can disconnect other cables to test, including the Ethernet cable.

Ferrites are our friends... wrap your I/O and power cables through Type 43 or 77 ferrite cores. The "computer" type ferrites are usually only good for VHF and up suppression.

Hi Steve
Thanks again for the info
if the rigpi is completely off, the power of the rigpi is normally connected to the mains, I have no malfunction as soon as the rigpi is switched on, the malfunction starts

if the rigipi is not started up but is under voltage, the interference is less

Hi Harry, Maybe it’s the power supply? I discovered that the inexpensive wall plug-in 5V DC power supplies typically sold to power Raspberry Pi’s are electrically very noisy. Most don’t have toroidal protection and have a noisy design in general. They adversely affect my system background noise level, even when good rig/equipment grounding practices are followed. I have multiple Pi’s in my shack doing different tasks. I greatly reduced the noise problem by buying a more robust, metal chassis 5 VDC supply that has a ground connection. I then bus out the 5V as needed. Lambda is a good brand that I have used for years. By the way, I had the same problem with an inexpensive off-brand laptop PC plug-in power supply. It had toroid RF protection - or so I thought. Before It went to the trash, hearing about scams, I cut open the “toroid”. It was nothing but plastic! Beware of low-cost Amazon stuff! I replaced it with an original equipment supply and no more noise!

interfering 80 meterband

Hello
I have a problem, my rigpi is interfering with the 80 meter band of my flex radio 6400
if I put the rigpi further in the house, the interference will decrease, but there is no listening to the 80 meter band
there is someone who also has experience with this

Thanks, Karl.  We'll post information about that next week.  I agree that we need to have a way to handle recent purchases.

Re: RigPi Image available for download from MFJ

Karl Heinz Kremer
 

Usually when you buy software after the new release was announced, you get the upgrade for free. Does this apply here as well? Meaning, when I pay for the download of version 1.05 today, will there be a free upgrade to v2? 

Thanks, 

Karl Heinz - K5KHK


RigPi Image available for download from MFJ

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 
Edited

RigPi, version 1.05 (the current production version), is now available for download from the MFJ web site.  The price for the download is $29.95.  This is the same software contained on the RigPi microSD card.  If you already have a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and don't need the Keyer or Audio boards, the download is a perfect way to get started with RigPi.

 
The RigPi image is a large file, nearly 5GB in size.  If you have a slow Internet connection, the microSD card may be a better way to go.  The RigPi microSD card is available from MFJ for $49.95.

Instructions for installing the RigPi image are contained in the download.  Download the zipped file and unzip on a PC.  You will see pdf and html versions of installation help.  The Download Help file is also available in the File section:

This image will NOT run on a Raspberry Pi 4 or later computer.  It uses the Raspbian Stretch operating system which is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi 4.  RigPI 2 will be released soon that uses the Buster operating system which will run on a Raspberry Pi 4.  RigPi 2 will also be available for download from MFJ.  Once RigPi 2 is launched my plan is to provide the RigPi software on Github.  A full image will not be available, only the RigPi server will be on Github.

Hi Howard
Is this a windows laptop?
Delete your mumble connection on your laptop and try again. Make sure you create a new unique user name like laptop1. If you get a prompt to accept a certificate say yes. If you are prompted for a password use 7388.

Re: RS232 to USB adapter

Glenn VE9GJ
 

Hi Ron
The lsusb didn't actually do anything, just confirmed what the pi was seeing. Another check would be run
ls -l /dev/ttyUSB* <enter>
In a terminal after plugging in your usb-232 adaptor.
Look for the ttyUSB# that matches the time you plugged it in.
For some reason USB ID app didn't think it was a serial device. All the app does is make a staticname for the actual ttyUSB#

WSJTX TX freq increments and does not return to RX freq

Jim Yuen
 

Aloha,

I have an unexplained situation on the RigPi (ver 1.05) running WSJTX (Ver 2.1.2). Occasionally when calling CQ on the 20M band with Fake-it set, the frequency jumps to 14.074.500 (normal) but does not return to 14.074.000. The next transmit moves it up to 14.075.000 and does not return to 14.074.000, and so forth incrementing by 500 each time. I need to reset it by selecting the 20M band again.

Some settings: on file; settings; radio : Hamlib NET rigctl, CAT control network server = localhost 4532, PTT method = CAT, Transmit audio = front/mic, mode = none; split operation = fake-it

Curiously the Test CAT button when pressed stays the same, no red or green. The Test PTT button  turns red and then returns to blank BUT on the RigPi tuner page the PTT turns RED and STAYS ON unless I click on it. However the WSJTX does return to receive mode and continues to decode signals even when the Tuner PTT stays RED.

Again, most of the time WSJTX acts normally and the frequency returns to receive (14.074.000). I put ferrite on the cable to the RJ45 cat socket to no avail.

BTW I'm using a Kenwood TS 480SAT.

Anyone else have this problem? Any advice?
