Thanks, Howard,
One other item I did not report, but here it is as briefly as I can describe it.
I was able to see that I had created some other log files, though the field tabs are multiple, as I reported.
In addition, I logged in ten contacts in a log (General) for the “Route 66 on the Air” event.
Yet, when I open ANY LOG those same ten contacts populate the fields. Like the proverbial bad penny, they won’t go away.
If I delete one record the default seems to be to delete it from all logs.
Hmmm…

Jan,  It will be easier using Leafpad to edit files.  Do this in a terminal window.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install leafpad
Copy and paste the first line then press enter, copy and paste the second line and press enter.
To use Leafpad start the terminal window, This line is an example of the entry to start
Leafpad to then be able to edit the file. sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list
You use the full path to have Leafpad locate and open the file, when done you click on File
in the Menu then click Save.

Hi Jan,

I agree, reading dynamic output power level should be in Hamlib, but I’ve not found a radio for which that is provided.

Changing your user password for gaining access to RigPi is easy, go to SETTINGS>Users and click Edit on the account you want to change.  The Mumble password requires a file be edited.  How to find that file and what to change is provided in RigPi Help.

Finally I get hold of the command to save and quit the Mumble ini file.

I paste the file path command from Help in to the terminal.

Moved to the serverpassword as mentioned in help and change it.

Use Ctrl + O to write out and exit and after that I cant connect to the Mumble server at all.

When it start up this text is showing.

1:45 PM] Welcome to Mumble.

[1:45 PM] Opening chosen ALSA Input failed: No such device

[1:45 PM] Opening chosen ALSA Output failed: No such device

[1:45 PM] Connecting to server rigpi.local..

[1:45 PM] Connected.

 

So now it safe alright, no one can use it including my self  HI

Having a few problems in trying to create a new log (format, etc.) in the web browser.
When I chose a field from the Master List (white area) and move it over to the left to the “Logbook Columns” (yellow area), I find the field to get replicated once more. In other words, when I move “His Call” over to the left, I have two “His Call” in the Logbook Columns list.
If I delete one, they both disappear. This happens with any field I have tried to move.

Anyone seen this?

As a part of my troubleshooting, where do I find the logbook configurations (file) saved on the Rigpi? I have explored the Rigpi desktop through FileManager and had no success. From with WSTJX I can see the logs for wsjtx.log and wsjtx_log.adi. There are other files there also, but none seem to relate to the Rigpi web browser.
I am surely missing something, but what?

Re: Need help setting up different radios

Howard, thanks for the info regarding power meter reading. This was news for me, my over ten-year-old free version of HRD support movements in all meter types so I was sure that a modern setup should support it also. Is this a common thing in Hamlib or is it just this little older radio that is not supported? Well I guess I must accept it so now I am going over to a bigger problem. As a user that never seen a Linux OS or a Pi, I have some problem with changing passwords, so I get some security. Maybe there is a step by step manual somewhere? I will start to look for it now as I understand the problem to have the RigPi out on internet with the default password that every RigPi owner or person that downloaded the manual knows.

 

Regards from Sweden.  Jan / SM5SUH

Hi Jan,

What you are seeing on the meter during Transmit is correct.  Hamlib does not support dynamic readings of power out, only a static max power out setting.  You can adjust the calibration of the meter in Transmit so it makes more sense.  Please see RigPi Help>Settings>Advanced Radio for details.

Re: Yaesu FTDX-1200 #mfj-1234

Jason Hamilton
 

So right now at the moment this is how I have my radio connected.  
1.  Followed the standard instructions for setting up the RSS only difference was I chose the FTDX-5000 as my radio in the server.
2. For the audio at the moment I have one of these https://www.ebay.com/itm/2019-USB-linker-Adapter-for-YAESU-FT-450D-950D-DX1200-FT991-radio-connector-ICOM/192781550119?hash=item2ce2ad0227:g:hqIAAOSwOWdcLmqS
so I then connected the audio out from that to go to the RigPi.  I then also increased the settings in the radio for menu items 78 to 100 and 79 to 50 (default, might go higher not sure yet)

So I also ordered https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-FT-FT8-FT4-JT65-PSK-Audio-Interface-6-Pin-Mini-DIN-Cable-DC-11F-for-YAESU/163772517145?hash=item26219a4b19:g:SCEAAOSwnDpaI31s:sc:USPSFirstClass!80021!US!-1
since that splits out the audio from the din port for me and I can then use that instead of the box listed above. Also ordered from gigaparts the din to RJ45 cable as well as I experiment with this.   Right now I can say that the audio coming through is low and I'm hoping that once I get one of the cables and I can eliminate this man in the middle box for now that it will improve the audio for me.

So for the SCU-17 as I understand that is USB sound card and cat control all in one I don't see why you couldn't just plug that directly into the pi (I have my USB cat cable plugged into the pi that way) Let me know your thoughts. 

Re: KX3 Jumper

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi John,

You are correct in your thinking.  Contact MFJ and they will send the header.  In the meantime you can use two audio cables with 3.5mm plugs at both ends in place of the cable.  The TX Out cable should be stereo.  On the RigPi Audio Board you will see a jumper that connects two pins to provide PTT.  If you want to use the Power On circuitry for the KX3, move the jumper to the other end.  (PTT is provided through CAT.)

KX3 Jumper

johnpierce
 

I just received the MFJ-5700 KX3 cable.  I guess I was incorrect thinking that the Jumper Plug would be included, but see that it is not.  Where can I get a jumper plug I need to operate the KX3?

Re: TS 2000 no PTT

 
Edited

Hi Don,
Sorry to hear that.  I didn't know you had other cables connected.
Yes, remove all cables except the serial and 13 pin cables.
Take the time and go through the complete set up again.
Don't forget the baud rate of 57,600 in the radio menu and the RigPi advanced radio settings.
Be sure to save the settings by clicking on the cloud with the arrow.
After you make changes be sure to close and restart the appropriate programs.
Also do a power down and restart on the RigPi when finished changing everything.
Good luck,
Don

Re: RugPi and internet disconnect or power failiure mfj-1234

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Rudi,

If RigPi power is lost it will reboot when power is returned.  It will reconnect to the Internet automatically.

If the Internet connection is lost, RigPi reconnects when the Internet is restored.  Keep in mind that if power is lost or the Internet drops, you may receive a new WAN IP and/or LAN IP.  There are steps you can take to prevent changes from occurring.  Furthermore, if Internet is lost and you happen to be in Transmit, RigPi has a Deadman timeout that will kick in after a set amount of time.  See RigPi settings.

Settings are not lost, they are kept in a database.

The only way to restart RigPi remotely if you have no Internet or can’t connect to RigPi for some other reason is by use of an independent power switch.

Re: TS 2000 no PTT

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

HI Don,

On your radio, first make sure VOX is turned off.

RigPi uses CAT commands to control radio PTT if the radio supports it.  It also provides hardware PTT through the audio connector.  Try disconnecting the RJ45 cable from RigPi and restart the radio.  Does PTT behave without the cable connected?

If it works, go to the CW Keyer settings page.  Click Reset Defaults.  Watch the red PTT light as RigPi sends ‘R R’ after the Keyer is reset.  Does it light?

Depending on the outcome of these tests, we will go to the next step.

Mark please be specific what you mean you are having trouble.  step on would be to get the rigpi controlling the freq etc.   are you able to control and tune freq and change bands with the rigpi locally?
