OK, solution found. For the 30M WSPR-PI TAPR kit, c4 and c7 are 270 pf, and c5 and c6 are 560 pf. The inductors l2 and l4 are 1uf, and inductor l3 is 2.5 uf. I will try to attach a picture of the output of the kit on my TinySA spectrum analyzer adjusted for 200 mw output at 10.140 mhz, the wspr 30m frequency. The close in noise is a little high, but spurs are way down, and it probably meets FCC specs. 

Mitch W4OA
ps if you haven't ordered your TinySA yet, get yourself one for Christmas. For only $50, it is spectacular!

John,

Had a chance to try this last night and the Cst 4/250 mode worked flawlessly!

Will test further this weekend and report back,

Unfortunately I have learned that what I thought was a "clean" Raspberry Pi 3 actually had an older version of tqsl built, so without completely rebuilding a system I cannot come up with a 100% accurate list of dependencies. 

But...these are some notes of dependencies I wrote down earlier.  This may prove to be a good starting point.
cmake
llibdb C++ development
libssl development files
Bindings for LMDB C library
development files for libcurl GnuTLS flavour
lmdb-dev
libwxgtk development

I just went through this re-setting up my Pi 4 for ham use. It runs Raspbian, but since both Raspbian and Mint use APT for package management, this addendum will work just fine (once you figure out what your APT sources look like).

You will need to make sure that your /etc/apt/sources.list file has a line beginning with "deb-src". I am not sure what it would be exactly in Mint, but in Raspbian, my /etc/apt/sources.list file looks like this:

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
deb-src http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi

In any other distribution that uses APT for package management, you should just be able to duplicate any line beginning with "deb ..." and make the duplicate one say "deb-src ..." instead.

After that, run "sudo apt update", and then "sudo apt build-dep trustedqsl". That will solve any compilation-blocking issues that TrustedQSL may (read: will) present.

moderated Re: fldigi 4.1.16 Pulse Audio configuration issue #raspberrypi #pi3

Cliff, AE5ZA
 

Dan,

In the Pulse Audio Volume Control config page I have 3 lines, the first two refer to the built in audio. The third is labeled PCM2901 Audio Codec which is the sound card in the rig.  It’s profile is “Analog Stereo Duplex”.

Under Input Devices I show only one item and it is the PCM2901 as well. Output devices has the PCM2901 as the last in a list of 3. Have to scroll down to see it.

Recording has the PCM2901 with a Fldigi icon to the left of it indicating that it is connected to fldigi. I set the volume to 100% and leave that alone. I find it often starts out lower in a new install and it seems like the sound isn’t working, but it’s just too low.

Playback shows two lines and the second is the PCM2901 with a fldigi icon and again set at 100%. With that too low you won’t see TX power out or very weak power.

Hope this helps.
