Hi Bo,

You can update WSJT-X using instructions provided on the WSJT-X Princeton site.  It is easy and doesn’t affect RigPi.  I recommend doing so.

Re: Older rotator control

Hi Hayden,

Others are using the RotorEZ interface with RigPi, so I’m sure we can figure out what is going on and get your interface working.  There are tests we can run from the Terminal to narrow the problem down, if necessary.  (NaN means “not a number,” which implies a failed arithmetic calculation.)

Re: RigPi quirks with FT991

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Hayden,

I understand the 991 S-meter problem has been fixed in the new Hamlib 4.0, currently in Beta by the Hamlib development team.  I am testing 4.0 and so far haven’t run into any problems, but I don’t have a 991.  (Hamlib 4 can be installed on any RigPi from Terminal using their instructions.)

The Mumble Configure>Settings>Output window can be used to increase the audio level, there are also adjustments in the radio menu system provided for audio levels.

Mark-

With the FT-450 to enjoy the full benefit of the DSP,  receiver audio must be connected to the headphone or speaker jack, transmit audio to the mike RJ45 jack. I made a RJ45 'adaptor' with epoxy glue and two 3.5mm pc mount jacks welded together for mike/PTT. You will need to use VOX unless you config a GPIO line for PTT. MFJ says "Easy as 1-2-3".

RigPi quirks with FT991

Hayden Honeywood <haydenph91@...>
 

Hi All,
Is there a fix for the the FT-991 and S meter yet? I get signals S2-3 and it shows as S9+60 in RigPi.

I also have a small issue with the audio level sounding so low from radio via mumble. I can’t seem to adjust the audio in alsa as it only shows the playback for the USB audio codec. 

I can adjust audio easily from my phone for example to the radio for transmit audio by adjusting the slider.

Just having issues adjusting the mic level in.

Hayden


Re: Older rotator control

Hayden Honeywood <haydenph91@...>
 

Thanks Howard.

I had a play this afternoon. I couldn’t get my rotator control working properly but I did see the Rotate button to enter a manual number.
Occasionally it would show what I thought was the correct bearing, other times it would show NaN. So just need a bit more tinkering. 

I’m using an Easy Rotator Control that connects to my Yaesu.

I also have a few other quirks so I’ll post about them separately.


Re: Older rotator control

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Hayden,

Welcome to the forum!

You can use QRZ or a manually entered bearing to move the rotor.  The Lookup function computes the bearing from QRZ (subscription required) or the included FCC Amateur Database for US hams.  In the Macro bank you will see a ROTATE button.  That function suggests a bearing based on the last call looked up, or you can enter any value you wish in the text box.

Re: Older rotator control

Hayden Honeywood <haydenph91@...>
 

Hi Howard.
I've just received my RigPi for testing and evaluation on my YouTube page. https://www.youtube.com/c/HamRadioDX

I'm going to hook it up to my FT-991 and Yaesu G-1000DXA rotor.

I have a question though. Does RigPi only support rotating via the QRZ lookup? Or will be there facility to manually move the rotator? Sometimes it's handy to have manual control, especially if QRZ has incorrect details (i.e. operator is portable away from their gridsquare in QRZ.com).

Thanks Howard - 
Menu item 19 had been masked and when I unmasked it, I was able to set the baud rate and connect. Now on to remote operation.

And where do you tap the audio if not the MiniDIN6?
Is there such a thing as fixed level audio out of the FT-450D?
Can you explain what you are  using for "good audio"?

Hi Jim,

Port forwarding varies from one manufacturer to another.  But, based on your suggestion I just looked up port forwarding on YouTube.  With the number of port forwarding videos out there, I’ll bet there is one for your router.  Let us know!

Re: WiFi but not over the air

With the complexity of port forwarding, it would help the group if someone made a You Tube video of setting up oort forwarding and the WAN.

Re: FT-857 won't connectto RigPi

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Jeff,

In the 857 menu 019 you can see what Baud rate the radio is using (4800, 9600, or 38400), then set the same in RigPi.  You can set the Baud rate in the Terminal test by using -s 4800, or the other selections.  Normally Hamlib uses the highest Baud rate allowed for a radio, but that isn’t always true.  Until we can get the Hamlib rigctl command to work, RigPi will fail as well.

Hi Howard -
Thanks for the prompt reply.  The f command timed out as shown below:

pi@rigpi:~ $ rigctl -m 122 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -t 4532
 
Rig command: f
get_freq: error = Communication timed out

The baud rate is set to default.  I have also rebooted RigPi several times without any luck.
I tried changing baud rates to every option without results.

Serial speed: 4800..38400 bauds, 8N2

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for including the Test results.  The reports look fine (except for the error connecting). 

1) Have you tried rebooting RigPi?
2) Try the same command in Terminal, but use rigctl instead of rigctld.  Remove all after 4532.  rigctl -m 122 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -t 4532<enter>
3) You should see a prompt Command:, type f<enter> to get frequency.  What do you see?
4) if the command times out we need to look at other parameters, such as Baud rate.

FT-857 won't connectto RigPi

I have worked through several startup issues, but am stuck on the last one (I Hope). When I try to connect the FT-857 to the server, I get a message saying an unknown error has occurred. It tells me to check Radio Advanced for details, but I can't see anything helpful.  I've tried both an RT Systems USB-62B cable and bought a CT-62 FTDI USB cable from Valley Enterprises with no luck. Am I missing a driver for the cable? If so, How can I install one on the server? 

This is the output from the test radio routine:

TEST MODE Radio: 1

Radio from settings: 1
Port from settings: /dev/ttyUSB0
ID from settings: 122
RigDo.php rigDoPID from settings: 4681
service_port: 4532
To see any error details, click Disconnect Radio then start rigctld in Terminal with this line: 

rigctld -m 122 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -t 4532 > /dev/null 2>&1 &

rigctld processes running:
pi 2202 0.0 0.3 14728 3796 pts/0 S 15:21 0:00 rigctld -m 122 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -t 4532 

Error connecting to radio (RPRT -5)(0). Check radio connection and settings. Is the radio powered up? Please try again.


This is the output from the rigctld command:

pi@rigpi:~ $ rigctld -m 122 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -t 4532 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
[2] 2202
[1]   Exit 1                  rigctld -m 122 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -t 4532 > /dev/null 2>&1
 


Thanks for your help!

you have to install mumble on the laptop. that is the program that handles the audio .
