PCR1000 macros #macros

Doug Hall
 

How do I set volume and squelch levels in Macro's for the PCR1000 ICOM Receiver?
I tried *L SQL,10 for squelch with multiple values, did not make any change.
Frequency works *F 440300000 *f
For volume I tried *0w J40FF direct commands and *L AF,128  (assume AF= volume)
Ideally I would like one MACRO to select frequency, mode, volume and squelch.
I can not find a link with the receiver hex command tables to create that macro.

Thanks

Got my RSS for Christmas and have been using it a lot for FT8 on my IC-7100. Enjoy not being tethered to my rig is nice. Plus being able to run it from my phone.

Hi John

 

I;m running WSJT-X en FLdigi with no problem on my Icom 73000.

If the RigPi will ‘talk’to your RIG it should ben o prlem at all.

Hi John,

Which radio are you planning to use?
Do you have a RigPi presently?

Re: Error Loading Fildigi

Howard,

 

I tried it , it didn’t work.

 

It simply launches and shuts down , even, if I’m not logged in to RigPi and have mumble disconnect and shutdown. Although I don’t have any rig connected or configured yet. But that shouldn’t be a problem

 

WSJTX works properly

Hello Charudatt,

Make sure RigPi and Mumble aren’t running when you attempt to start Fldigi.  Use the Disconnect Radio button in the RigPi browser before closing the browser.  Closing the browser window without disconnecting the radio does not release rig control.

You can delete the programs in your list to free up space.  Another trick is to expand the file space to fill the MicroSD card.  To do this, start Terminal from the Raspberry Pi desktop and type the following command:  sudo raspi-config

Go to Advanced where you will find the expand option.  You should be able to gain another 1GB of space.

Re: My Modem unable to port forward

You have to use another user name other than the one you used to set up the rigpi. Use the password 7388

Hi All,

I’ve downloaded “Mumble” to my iPhone.   While it recognizes RigPi on the LAN, it won’t allow me to sign on to it without a User Name and Password.  I’ve tried the RigPi passwords and that is not working. What am I missing.

Are you using a browser to log in to your router?  The “password of the day” is a back door to get into the Arris router used by ISP’s using Telnet or SSH.  A browser shouldn’t present that option.  Here is one link discussing it:  https://w00tsec.blogspot.com/2015/11/arris-cable-modem-has-backdoor-in.html?m=1

You can also look for info on portforward.com.  They push a program to assist, but if you follow their suggestions the program isn’t required.

Error Loading Fildigi

Charudatt Uplap
 

I am having launching/opening Fildigi in VNC.

 

It starts and shuts down on its own. Don’t know what’s the issue.

 

I also wanted to know if , Libre Office, Wolfram and SamrtSim is required for successful operation of any of the subsystem on the RSS ? Can I un-install it ?

Re: How long should it take RigPi to boot up? And if it never comes up on the display, how can I power it down safely?

Glad you got it working!  

just for others who are having trouble getting started, I had a similar issue with mine where the HDMI to VGA a converter was not fast enough (from a R-Pi 1), and I had to update that to a faster part before I could get the VGA signal to work.
    Threw me off for a while.

Is the RigPi plugged into a power source that will run a Raspberry PI?
