Remember you connect your wiring from the switches inside your amp. Mine is also 220VAC. There is a script for the switches on the Pi already written. You just need to modify to your operation.

Dan,
Yes there is a way to turn on & off, then turn standby & operation. They have several add on boards for a Pi3B or 2B. Use a 4 channel Relay Hat

Oops!  I found what I needed.  It turns out the caption for the device on page 148 is located at the bottom of page 147.

Digital Loggers' IoT Control Relay.

So I go on with the project...

Thanks

RigPi User Manual- Remote Power Switch

Dan Heather
 

I would like to remotely control my old (SB-200) linear amplifier power on/off.  At the top of  page 148 in the V2 RigPi User Manual (Help menu/RigPi Help on the browser tuner page) it shows a most intriguing  photo of a multi-AC outlet gadget but no description.  Is that a way to control AC power to external equipment?  If so, how?

The only stumbling block is that the amp is running on 240 VAC, but I can look around for the right gadget if this is a possible configuration for the RigPi.

Thanks!

Dan N1DH

Hi all
I have finally got my Yaesu FTDX 5000 connected, I have the Yaesu SCU 17 between the Rigpi and radio and the cat control side works fine.
We have been unable to get any sound tx or rx. I wonder if anyone can help and any advice appreciated.

Hi Howard
The Yaesu FTDX 5000 is now connected, it was the power supply. It was changed from a 2.5 amp raspberry pi charger to a 3 amp charger.
The radio connected 1st try, the only part to sort now is the audio and I think this will be a setting that needs changing somewhere that my carer will manage to find.
Thanks for all the help and support and hopefully back on the air soon

Hi Bruce,  you will have to install the free Mumble app on your iPhone.  Go to the App Store application installed on all iPhones.  Tap the hourglass search icon and enter Mumble.  Upon searching, you will see Mumble pop up with a prompt to install it.  Install and you are in business!
See the attached screen snapshot image that shows what the correct Mumble looks like in the App Store.  

It works well.  Howard has some good instructions in the RigPi help sections for setup/use.

RigPi  Recent upgrade to RigPi2 image.
HDMI display, mouse, keyboard. Directly connected.
USB cable to Icom IC7610 USB1 port

Other than a couple glitches with the power on/off function, I have the RSS controlling my 7610 as i think it should.

I am having some trouble getting Mumble to work with the 7610. I am able to connect my Ipad(Mumble) and Android phone(Plumble) to the Mumble server. In fact I can pass audio between the two mobile devices. They both show up on the RigPi/Mumble VoIP Server device list along with pi.. 

After following instructions for radio "connectors" set-up, I still can't get radio audio to the pi. I set the Mumble Config so that both Audio Input and Audio Output settings are [Default].

Right clicking on the speaker icon on the pi desktop, brings up two selections....Audio Outputs, and Audio Inputs. For Audio Outputs, I have selected USB Audio CODEC.
The only choice for Audio Inputs is    snd_rpi_proto. It doesn't show me a CODEC option. 

What could I be missing? Do I need to change something in the ALSA mixer settings?

Hi Jim,

I guess you mixed me up with Bruce.... 😁

I see that you have exactly the same problem as I do. I already found the commands  *V VFOA  and    *V VFOB,   but the radio goes in fact not to VHF or UHF. 
When I am in VFO A on the VHF band and I want to switch to UHF band (which supposed to be in VFO B), then I can see the radio swiching to VFO B, but then VFO B shows also (or ‘still’) VHF frequencies (no UHF, which I expected).  How strange???

It seems that the RigPi remains on the band where it was at the moment that you connect the RipPi to your radio. If you connect to your radio while it’s in the VHF band, then the RigPi stays in the VHF band.

Do you experience the same, Jim?

Anybody, Any ideas?

Rig PI VER 2 Bug ?

radiorusso
 

I noticed that RIG π VER 2 seems to change my mic gain on its own.  If it is set to 10 on the slider the mic gain is set to 30 on the radio. I usually run the radio mic gain around 14 to keep from over driving  it. If I set the slider to 4 or so the Radio mic gain is now at 14 or so. I  move off the mic gain slider and over the next few seconds the slider slowly increments to 10  raising the radio  mic gain to 29.. IF I go to a non ham freq (WWV)  the power slider goes to zero and the mic gain  is also now showing  zero on the  mic gain slider. Move back to the ham bands and suddenly the Power  shows 39 on the  slider  and the mic gain jumps to  10. The radio is a FTdx 3000.  Another question about VER 2 when you double click on the Rig π icon a window opens asking what do you want to do as there is an executable script trying to  run Options execute, open in terminal  window  and I or 2 other choices . ? this normal or just something new . BTW have never been able to figure out why the mumble client  disconnects  after about 1 to 2 minutes when running  on the π4 and doesn't do this when running on theπ π 3B+  

Thanks in advance

Please check the FTdx5000’s Menu Group baud rate setting 032 - Gene CAT BPS - to ensure that it is also at 38400 bps.  While you are in the menu mode, ensure that 035 - CAT indicator LED is also enabled.  When flashing, it indicates that CAT is being accessed properly.

The photo resolution makes it hard to see, but I do see --civaddr.  Make sure that is set to default.  Confirm that the Baud rate in the radio is 38400.

Hi Dave,

You haven't mentioned trying any of the test options when the radio fails to connect.  Start with Test Radio in Advanced Radio settings and send along a copy of the report.
