Good Morning to all,

New Kid on the block.
Ordered a RigPi Saturday from DXE , found an email this morning that it is out for delivery, hence this posting.
My station consists of:
IC7610
IC 7300
IC 9700
With a Acom A1000 sitting in the background.
My plan is to be able to remotely operate the individual stations from different areas of the house.
Health issues have dictated this mode of operation.
That said, my question to the group is what is a good procedure to start setting up the station.
Going through the archives, I found a number of threads pertaining to the 7300.
Recommendations for a starter plan are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Oh yes, remote ops can be accomplished via a Win10 tablet, Win10 laptop, iPad or iphone7.
Thanks to the group and I will share my findings (good and bad) with all.

Hi Howard,
With reference to the display issue I mentioned, I forgot to ask about displaying the memory numbers seen under the displayed frequency. Are they dependant on the resolution as well because I don't see them.

Hi Dave,

The description of your screen layout is correct for RigPi 2.  The layout depends on the screen size, so a smartphone showing RigPi will look different from a tablet.  Here are some differences that will affect what you see:

1. RigPi 2 supports a video display from a webcam so you can watch your radio.  The screen shot I sent has this option enabled.  See RigPi Help for details.

2. The button layout is different from version 1.05.  Rather than having all the buttons stacked for narrow screens (1.05), scroll right (swipe left) to see the additional macro buttons (2.0).

Your tablet layout may be closer to the Windows browser screenshot I sent if you put your tablet in the landscape position.

One of the settings in groups causes images to be compressed to save data in emails.  This was set to 320x320 here in the RigPi group, I have increased it to 1024x1024 to help improve the resolution.  This change does not affect images already sent, only new ones.

Note you can also add attachments for larger images using the "paper clip" icon.  This option does not reduce the resolution.

Re: New RigPi Hub version 1.07

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Todd,

That's exactly what version 1.07 should have fixed.

Please send me a copy of the RigPi Hub install log by private email.  You can find it at C:\users\<you>\AppData\Local\Temp\MSI*.log.  Send the latest one.

Note that AppData is a hidden folder so you may have to allow it to be shown in File Manager->File->Hidden Items.

Re: RigPi2 > 7300 > After macro execution the sliders get reset to 0

Perry Ogletree
 

Same issue with the FT-991 but I wouldn’t call it “creep”. It snaps back to “39”, no matter what setting you drag it too, as soon as the rig gets its next “poll” query.  Sure looks like hamlib issue.

I have had slider creep on the mic gain with ver 2.0 and my FT3000. Howard  thinks it is something in the hamlib package

is there any settings I should look at to prevent this happening?

Mark Are you using an apple I phone or I pad for your remote device ? If so try muting and deafening the mumble client on the I device and  the unmute & Undeafen  the  rmote device. I found about this by accident and it has helped several people with the no transmit audio. It OLNY applies to Apple devices.

Thanks Howard, the camera option will be very helpful as I am unable to my hands. I would like to thank everyone for all the help I received. I am now back on the air every day and still learning what it will do. Slowly looking at writing macros and the camera will enable me to see what I changed.

Re: FAQ #poll-notice

Steve_KE4LC
 

Hi Manfred,  Your English is fine.  Let’s solve the problem.  So, you having a problem with Mumble server running on your RigPi device.   If it runs ok on another Pi, perhaps you have an incorrect Mumble audio driver setting.  Let’s check.  Since the 7100 has a USB digital connection for both audio and rig control, for Mumble, you will have to select a CODEC default driver for both of Mumble’s input and output set ups.  Please check CODEC drivers and let me know how it works. If it still doesn’t work, we’ll look for additional, new solutions.  73, Steve KE4LC

Re: Additional "no transmit audio" tests

Glenn VE9GJ
 

Not sure of the specific test you are talking about but if you have another computer connected to the same mumble server as rigpi and your "mic" mumble device but hear no mic audio on it I would think the problem would have to be in the mumble app on the mic device. In your case not sure if it is android, iphone, windows laptop etc.

New RigPi Hub version 1.07

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi all,

Several have reported issues with installing RigPi Hub 1.05.  Here is a new version that corrects the problem:

https://rigpi.net/downloads/RigPiHubSetUp1-07.exe

RigPi Hub is a free Windows program that provides a bridge between most popular logging programs and RigPi.  RigPi Hub has 4 virtual ports through which you can connect up to 4 programs to RigPi.

RigPi Hub contains a CW interface so you can send CW through RigPi from a paddle, straight key or electronic key at the remote location.  You can even key with a mouse button!
