Here are the settings.  I could not change R Port from none

There is an audio cable from KX3 audio out to Rigpi Rx in.

Hi John,

Let's tackle the radio first.  Audio requires a different set of instructions.

Open the Advanced Radio settings window and confirm that the settings are correct.  The Baud rate should be 38400 for the KX3 unless you have changed it in the radio.  Check the Baud rate in the radio menu system to confirm that it is 38400.  You should see /dev/ttyUSB0 in the R Port box. Leave the Stop, R DTR, R RTS and CI-V boxes set to default.  Click Test Radio.  If you are connecting from another computer, copy and paste the contents of the resulting box that shows the connection status.  Please send it in a private email to me.

Jim,

The Ethernet cable and the USB cable for the radio are completely independent.  You need to have the both connected at the same time for normal operations.  The Ethernet cable provides a data connection for remote devices, phone, tablets, etc.  The USB cable sends and receives commands back and forth from RigPi to your radio.

If the only item is none, RigPi has not recognized your USB cable.  Try pulling it out from RigPi and plugging it back in.  Refresh the browser window showing the Advanced Settings window and see if the cable now appears.  Until it shows up we can't control the radio.

I tried to set the R Port Box as you said but could not change it from None.

At the bottom of the new file it says the radio is already connected.  Is frequency showing on the Tuner window?  If not, use the Disconnect Radio button before running Test.  Please also confirm that you have checked the radio Baud rate in the radio menu.

You sent much more than required.  You can copy the contents of the box that opens after you click the Test button, copy it then paste into an email.

I just corrected it. And resent it.  Sorry for the erroneous file

Hi Jim,

Yes, that's correct.  If you are connecting from another computer or a mobile device, the control commands go through the Internet.  If you tap a band button on your cell phone, the command to change bands is sent to the Internet and then to RigPi.  An Internet connection is not required if you are using the browser on the Raspberry Pi desktop.  In that case, the Internet does not carry the radio commands, but you will not be able to access DX spots, QRZ lookups or the maps shown in the web window.

Howard,

 

I finally got logged into Rigpi and see the tuner.  In Settings basic radio I have selected the KX3 and have a ACC1 to USB cable plugged in the Rigpi.  The frequency does not follow my KX3 and there is no audio.

 

What next?

 

John

That is correct on my 7600 I didn't have to make any changes at all.   It works exactly like you are wanting.

I can only get the RSS to start up if the Rigpi is physically connected to my router by an ethernet cable.   When can I connect the Rigpi by USB cable to the radio?

The only way Rigpi.local will bring up the RSS  is if the RIgpi is plugged in to my router by the Ethernet cable.  I can't seem to get it to start up otherwise.

Thanks guys for quick response, I was logged in to local PI as you mentioned.  I will disable Split polling as well.  Will let you know when I test.

thanks again,

Re: FW: [RigPi] Icom question

When I first started the Rigpi, I connected it to my router by an ethernet cable and then through the RSS  I saw the RIgpi was connected.   Now I will try to disconnect the ethernet cable and see if I can boot up thru   RIgpi.local .

Re: FW: [RigPi] Icom question

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hmmm, not sure I understand your question.  RigPi never needs to be disconnected from your router, it should stay connected either by the Ethernet cable or by Wi-Fi.  Some radios have the ability to connect to the Internet, but not the 7300.

So RigPi needs both the Internet connection and the USB cable to the radio at the same time.

Re: How to Copy a SD Card

engineercarl <engineercarl@...>
 

Carl:

While in Win32DiskImager, You need to specify a file name to write the image to on your computer. Specify the path and the file name (the .img extension is assumed).

Then the READ button will illuminate and you will copy the entire contents of the 16GB card to a .img file on your computer. Partitions, files, blank space...it all gets written. 

I then Zip the file for safekeeping and put it somewhere until I need it.
