Hi Don,

Yes, but you need at least a Raspberry Pi 0 to interface to the Internet at the remote end.  You can also use a PC with a program called Morse Keyer and RigPi Hub, both free.  RigPi Hub is available on the RigPi.net site.

Could it be done with a WinKey at the client?

Hi Don,

Tell us a bit more what you would like to see.  By "automatic mode" do you mean operating mode (CW, AM, etc) or band selection.  If you are looking for a way to tune to non-ham band frequencies, the simplest way to do that is through keypad entry or by clicking digits on the frequency panel.  You can also set up macros for favorite listening frequencies.

General Coverage RX

While the automatic mode function is handy for ham bands, it makes SW listing nearly impossible.

Re: Radio very loud when i use headset mic #audio

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Tony,

The simplest way to adjust the receive audio level from your radio is by using Alsamixer in RigPi.  Go to the Terminal on the Raspberry Pi desktop and type alsamixer<enter>.  You will see the gain controls there.

Hi Pierre,

RigPi Remote CW (RigPi 2, currently in Beta) uses on/off keying, not MCW.  The RigPi Keyer board is used at the radio end to key CW.

If you get/have a SD card reader for your PC/Laptop you can read/write the “boot” FAT 32 area of your SD card (Ignore any “You need to format” prompt as that’s just complaints about the Linux partition) . If you get software, like the Paragon “Linux File System for Windows”, you can even read/write the Linux EXT4 partition.  That allows you to make easy backups of your config files, edit and file you need to modify, etc.

Hi Gerald,

If the green activity light doesn't blink at all, the memory card may have become corrupted.  The red light should stay on continuously and not blink...if it does, a power supply issue may be the cause.

Hopefully you made a backup of your current card.  If not you may have to get another card or download the image from MFJ.  MFJ may cover the card under warranty...contact them to see.

Hi Georges, 
I think I have the same interface (CG Antenna RTC 200)  My Yaesu G1000 works very well. 
Try below settings:

Man Yaesu 
Baud 9600
GS-232B
Port

Use the gpredict program after using the rotctld command.

Re: Yaesu G-800DXA controlled through USB232G device.

Gregory Miller
 

Open a terminal window, 'sudo su -', 'rotctld -m 603 -r /dev/ttyUSB0'

This will start the rotor control daemon for a Yaesu (603) on USB zero.

georges.hayet@...
 

Hi,
Has anyone tried to configure and control a rotor like the Yaesu G-800DXA through the USB interface USB232B (exemple : https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-232B-Rotator-Control-Interface-Board-for-YAESU-G-800DXA-1000DXA-2800DXA-Bt/174127070455?hash=item288ac83cf7:g:V90AAOSw97pd9y9F)
Any success, or similar control with other devices, please share you experience how it perform.
Also, any possibility then to have WSJT-X running on the RigPi, and be able ton control the rotor attached to the USB port and configured on RigPi Rotor menu?
Thanks.

Re: Remote paddle option

Pierre Desjardins
 

A question: Will it be 'real' CW, i.e. the carrier at the remote station will be put on/off via the paddle at the other end ...? Or will it be MCW which is in reality a sidetone transmitted in SSB?
We tried MCW using the MFJ-1234 but we got bad reports (lots of IMD) so we abandoned this approach.
Thanks and 73 de VE2PID

Re: rigpi frozen

Karl Jan Skontorp
 

Hi Dick!
My son have used SD-card in prefessional equipment, and he bought from Franell, Swissbit and Delkin Devices. Please check this datasheet
http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/2774100.pdf?_ga=2.250546117.234612424.1597253083-2139192366.1596629935

He also told me low voltage on the RPi might give problems. I'm not very familiar with the RPi, but I thinkt there is two leds on the board, close to the USB/network connections. One is red and the oter is green. If the red is on, this indicates low voltage. My son also told me that such a siruation also will be logged in the RPi log. This could be checked with the command "dmesg", I don't know how to check or what kind of message to look for, but it will have to do with the "low voltage" suppose someone in this forum can give you better answers than me, regarding Raspian log debugging....

Hope this helps!

Radio very loud when i use headset mic #audio

-Hi , is it possible to modifie radio tonality when i use a headset on my phone ?

my radio is very loud  i need mode acute ...

Thank You !

Tuner UI suggestions

Don Melcher
 

Mainly regarding touch screen operation. 


A “LOCK” button. Too easy to bump the knob trying to do something else. Maybe cycle through Off, ALL, ALL ex PTT. 


Make the + and - buttons act like UP/DOWN buttons on hand mic. 


Keypad entry that makes sense... there was an external keypad for the IC-735 - QSY’er? - that used a very clever sequence. I have one. I’ll dig it out and give it a try so I get it correctly. I just remembered I have a 735 as well. My old one that dad had.
