Hi Don,

Here are drawings showing the pin layouts:  https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/RigPi%20Documentation/audiodipconnections.pdf

Yes, you will see the pin designations marked on the "top" (facing down) of the audio daughter jumper board.  PTT is pin 6.  Ground is pins 1, 2, and 3.

Thank you Howard for the reply.  

My PTT off time is about a 7 Mississippi count currently.  Some times as short as 3, but not often.
I look forward to the update.

For some reason it seems that my answer from my mobile phone didn’t get trough but here is my answer regarding what happens if I 'choke'.

 

I guess that the deadman switch doing the job and kill the TX after the time I have set (6 minutes). If this should be a problem, why is there a TX/RX button already?

Howard,

By RigPi header jumper, you mean the jumper module that is on the small board that the audio cable plugs into?  According to the information I have on that jumper, PTT is on PIN 3 and Ground is on PIN 7, 8 or 9.  Please confirm this is correct and I will check it.

Thanks.

Cheers

DB Error after my pi disk space filled up

Hi Folks,

So unknowingly my pi filled up with lots of wav files and my disk space hit its max. Once I cleaned out some space, when I went to login to my rigpi ui, after entering my creds, I'm getting the below message..it seem hozed. Any suggestions?




Thanks :)

Hi Duncan,

Yes, the CW Keyer board is the key (so to speak) for remote keying.  You can use a second RigPi, or purchase a RigPi Keyer Board separately to use with a Raspberry Pi (including the Zero).

Hi Andy,

The longest the PTT OFF delay should be is under a second. The delay isn't caused by Internet dalay, but is caused mostly by polling in RigPi.  I'm working on improvements to the PTT software that will be in the next update.  The changes should provide better switching speed.

Don, you can simply short the PTT line on the RigPi header jumper to ground to see if the PTT engages.

Re: Mumble/Plumble connection for sound

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

The Mumble server keeps track of usernames and their associated certificates.  Once the two are joined at the hip, but you are blocked, you can use a different username or sign in to Mumble on the Raspberry Pi as a Superuser where you can delete accounts.  Google Mumble superuser for details.

I just upgraded my 1.2.19 Mumble to 1.3 on a Windows computer with no issues.

Re: Mumble/Plumble connection for sound

Mark Weisheimer
 

It works for me on Mac, Linux and PC but I HAVE had certificate issues in the past.
It seems to me that once a certificate is done incorrectly, I can never get that username to work again.
So, what I do is to use a new username to log in from THAT client. It can be any username other than one already used and the password is always 7388
Then, when I make the first connection, I accept whatever it says about the certificate and log in anyway.
It seems to cache the certificate (or the fact that it is no good) and I have not yet figured out how to fix a failure other than using a new username.
I have also removed Mumble and re-installed it to get going in the past.

Frank,

I tried that also go the same result.  It seems to be a certificate issue and I'm sure how to solve this issue.  Can't get Mumble on Windows or Plumble on my android phone to work.

Yeah I ran into that as well.

I am a MAC guy and though it was only MAC folks that had that issue.

But.. after three days and a few (too many) hours, I deleted it and installed the older one.

All good now with 1.2.19

Thank you for the reply.  I viewed the video and it is helpful.  However, I noticed that the Windows Mumble Client in the video is 1.2.19.  When I went to the Mumble website, the only Mumble Client is 1.3.0.  When I go into the Mumble Server Connect page to setup a server, it does not have a password window.  I fill in the other windows with the same information (Label, Address, Port, Username) in the Mumble Serve on the RigPi.  I then attempt to connect that server.  I get back it is connected but the certificate or password is wrong with a window.  I type in the password that is on the RigPi Mumble Server and still get the same error.

The best way to check for continuity is to use a gator to gator test wire.
Put a sewing needle on one end and connect the other to the Ohm meter
test lead.  Use the needle to probe the RJ connector and if also needed
use the same gator to gator with needle for the DIN connector.
Another way is to take the cover off the RigPI and unplug the jumper module,
you can see the pin markings on the underside of the RJ45 board.
Pin 8 starts at the notch, now test from the DIN to each pin on the DIP socket
and make a pinout list.  Compare which wire from the DIN and with the jumper
module installed that everything lines up pin to pin to the other side of
the jumper module paying attention to the GND and PTT.
Pin 9 of the DIN is for digital operation but also for allowing TX audio
to go directly to the modulation section, the mic is muted when this pin
is grounded.  9 PKS should be connected to pin 2 on one side of the DIP socket
then jumpered to the PTT on the other side.

I have checked continuity with the my current cable.  I am not 100% certain of the reading.  The probe was too large and the meter is not the best.  I will recheck with a better probe/meter if I can locate one.  My results are puzzling.  While I see PTT control I do not see any audio.  And I recall that when I unplugged the cable from the RSS during one of the tests suggested  and tried to key the transmitter, it did key.
The results of the pin-to-pin continuity check is as follows.  The pins on the RJ45 are counted with the contacts pointed at 6 o'clock and facing up from Right to Left.  The pins on the 13 pin are counted from a mirrored image of the socket on the back of the TS2000 located in the instruction manual.  The key is to the bottom.  Top row is 13, next row Right to Left is 9, 10 ,11, 12, next row 5, 6, 7, 8 and the bottom row is 1, 2, 3, 4.

Thanks, Mark. I didn’t get a chance to work on it today, but I will be setting it up tomorrow. If I just take my time and document every setting I make, I can back track to a point where the problem disappears.

 

I want to make sure this works and I can then provide documentation for anyone else with a TS-480.
