Hi all

 

Now running WSJT-X v2.1.0 24fcd1 on the RigPi

Is this the latest version for the Pi?

Hi Larry,

Here is a quick guide to updating WSJT-X:

wsjtx_2.1.2_armhf.deb for Stretch is the latest.

Disregard.  Got it. Thanks


Won't recognize password

rschaffr@...
 

I was setting up my new RigPi and entered my username and password.  The nenxt time I logged in, it would not recognize it.  I went to PHPAdmin station->users as per info I found on the site and it said to delete all recortds but the first and changed the first record.  My system returned 0 records.  What do I do?

What is the volume command and range? *L AF 10 does not change anything.

Hi Doug,

The Hamlib commands do not have commas.  So your squelch macro should be:

*L SQL 10

The ability to add more than one command in a macro is fixed in the upcoming RigPi release.

Re: RSS user name changed from admin to k6ncx - or so I thought

Hi Neil,

RigPi allows you to change the username on any account (so long as the account you are using to edit accounts has access level 1).  To do so, go to SETTINGS>Accounts.  Click the Edit button on the admin account.  Change the username, click the cloud-up arrow to save, and you are done.

This account continues to be an admin account as determined by the Access level of 1.  The only action you can't do is delete this account.

Re: Icom 7300 and WSJTX

WSJT-X can control your radio directly, or indirectly through RigPi.  If you wish to use the direct connection, make sure the radio in RigPi is disconnected.  Note that even though the browser is closed, RigPi may still be controlling the radio.  In WSJT-X use the Radio settings window to select the radio and associated info.

The other way to control the radio from WSJT-X is indirectly through RigPi.  The advantage to using this technique is that contacts logged in WSJT-X are automatically transferred to the log in RigPi.  Get the radio going in RigPi, then in WSJT-X use the Hamib NET rigctl and set the Network Server to localhost:4532.

The bottom line is that only one program can directly control the radio at one time.

Re: CW Decode

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Ron,

Welcome to the RigPi forum!

RigPi will not decode CW, but Fldigi, which comes installed on RigPi, does decode CW.  You can also use the RigPi Keyer with Fldigi since Fldigi supports the Winkeyer which is compatible with RigPi Keyer.

CW Decode

Ron Delpiere
 

I am considering one of the RigPi Servers for remotely controlling my main HF rig up at my cabin where the noise level is significantly lower than at the home QTH. 

I see where the RigPi can send CW and have heard that it can decode as well.  learning CW is a lower priority at this time, so I am looking for an alternative method to accomplish it.

Check out ddclient. I have it in use in various locations and it does just what you are looking for.

Re: #mumble #mumble

Rico Abagnale, DG5BQ
 

Hi and happy new year everybody.

Today I played around with mumble on the RigPi. I think I got closer to the problems I have:
1. When I connect to the RigPi via my local network mumble works fine, meaning I can push the lips on my iPhone and the server switches the lips to red and receives my voice. When I try to do the same think via the internet (DYNDNS) the lips turn red once and never again. I have to reconnect mumble on the RigPi to the server again and then reconnect the client on the iPhone to that server. After that it works once again and then it Stopps again.
2. There seems to be no connection between the control program for my rig and mumble. I can control the rig via the iPhone and any other device. I can hear the sound coming out of the rig and trigger the PTT. But when I push the PTT mumbles doesn’t react at all.

By the way: to test whether sound is being transmitted to the radio I connected the audio out to a loudspeaker. 


I hope these discriptions of the problems I have may help to find a solution.

Have you checked your home router? Many will update naming services like DynDNS if your ISP changes your IP address. You only have to run the updater from one source in most cases.

Re: My Modem unable to port forward

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Bob,

The double router at home will be a problem.  Is there any way you can connect RigPi directly to your modem/router, or put the modem/router in a passthrough mode so the router in that box is bypassed?

There is no need for port forwarding at the remote location.  Port forwarding is required for servers (RigPi), but not for browsers/mumble clients at the remote end.  Remember that connecting to RigPi from a remote location is just like connecting to any web site on the Internet.

—Howard


Re: My Modem unable to port forward

robert sherman <marceno2@...>
 

OK Howard; I will reset both on RSS to TCP. RigPi is strictly remote operation for me, so the software settings are difficult for a software dummy like me. I think i understand that at the station QTH all i have to do is port forward the Netgear router & the Arris TG1682G modem/router & at the remote location port forward the Arris TM1602 modem/router. Just seems a problem getting to port forwarding at the station due to the double router. I was able to get to port forwarding at the remote QTH on the TM1602 ok.  Let me know if my procedures are correct. Thx & 73, Bob K2SJP

RSS user name changed from admin to k6ncx - or so I thought

Neil K6NCX
 

I was just going to give a password to the admin user and add a new account for my call, but it said to enter my callsign in place of admin so I did, and entered a password. After that I tried to log on as k6ncx with that password, but that didn't work. Tried to log on as admin with blank password, but that didn't work. Started this thread, then it occurred to me to try admin with the new password. Bingo!
 
So apparently the admin account can't be renamed. Now I know.

The other thing I had to figure out was how to save a new account. It turns out the up arrow (on the screen, not the keyboard) is save. It didn't help, I'm sure, that the display I'v using is tiny.


Icom 7300 and WSJTX

Cdryanhall@...
 

I have try to get the 7300 work with rigpi on wsjtx with no luck. I have to decode and seeing all of the CQ. I go to configure it looks like it’s going to work and get the green dot With the S in the middle and then it throws up the red button and saying that I need to configure the radio. I did get it to do one contact and log it but then it said that the frequency was lost are something like that.

Bingo. Thank you Howard. Now on to audio cables!
