Hello, Kurt

Use Thetis, not PowerSDR

Hi Alex

Thank for responding. I will see if PowerSDR work with my firmware version

Kind regards

To answer your question - yes, it is possible. We were running FT8 using Odyssey 2 in 5R8UM Madagascar expedition.

How to do it - I have no idea, it was my friends radio and responsibility.

I remember that we were running PowerSDR, for FT8 - we started with JTDX and then switched to MSHV.

That's about it.

Hi Kurt

 

I’m not a FT8/WSTJ-X user, and I don’t have any Odyssey transceiver. But all rigs belonging to the OpenHPSDR family have approximately the same behavior.

 

Did you try to install VB Cable

https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/index.htm

Banana

https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm

or voicemeeter

https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/index.htm

?

These utilities can redirect any audio output to another software audio input and vice versa. In other words, everything going out from SDR-console/SDR-Radio or PowerSDR can be “plugged” on the FT8 audio input

The “audio plug” selection can be made in the “receive” tab, “option” icon, “device” branch of the new pop-up window

 

As you can see, the virtual audio cable input or any voicemeeter audio input can be selected in the “available playback” list.

In the QSTJ-X software,  audio configuration interface, you’ll have to choose the corresponding “VB Audio cable output” or “voicemeeter output” in you audio input listbox

 

… and exactly the same way for transmitting (WSTJ-X audio out should use a second “vb-audio input” and the other side of this cable will be “plugged” in the “mic input” of SDR-Console)

 

I wrote -sorry, in French- a kind of “Virtual cable for dummies” using a FreeDV software as digital modulator, and SDR Sharp or PowerSDR as main SDR client. But images speak by themselves.  The general logic approach is definitely the same with WSTJ-X an any kind of SDR client software

Re: Ody II ANP 1.11 IP problem

David Fainitski
 

Hello, Kurt

3.3 Votls is full scale.

For power 100 Watt and less just copy the schematic HFPU-100.

David


Re: Ody II ANP 1.11 IP problem

Kurt Poulsen
 

Hello David

Problem solved. You wrote Python 2.xx needed but it is Phyton 2.7.x which is needed. I noticed in you document about the boot loaded was written in Phyton 2.7.h so that got my “brain to tick”. The windows installer for Phyton 2.7.8 was the one I used and the everything went smooth the Odyssey 2 wat found clicking on test and the default IP programmed subsequently successfully.
I have maybe a hint why the fault happened. I probably did not disconnected the Odyssey 2 via the center key on the microphone or the power on/switch on the radio but abruptly took the AC power to the 220V AC to 12V DC adaptor.

Thank you for your support David to get me “back in space”.

By the way.. what is the nominal / max input voltage for ADC1 and ADC2 as I want to make a SWR/Power detector like the one you have in the HFPU-100 PA stage

Kind regards

Kurt

Connect headphones to KEY connector and turn a power on.
bootloader 2.0 should indicate on the display all the time
after that the default IP will be valid.

Re: Ody II ANP 1.11 IP problem

Hi David

Thank you, the Odyssey run alright in Bootloader mode, but to get the Bootloader_2.0.pyw up and running is quite a challenge. The Python 2.3.5 installed (windows installer version) but clocking on the Bootloader_2.0.pyw does not get it to start. Opening with Pythonw dos not help either. What is the catch. Sorry I am a window guy so a bit helpless

Hello, Kurt

The IP address was reset to zero and I don't know why at this moment.

Bootloader starts with the default IP 192.168.2.160 but for working firmwares zero IP meaning that DHCP is enabled.

For resolve this problem run your Odyssey in bootloader mode and change IP address with the Bootloader_2.0.pyw program (Python 2.xx needed)

You should change the IP even if you use default 192.168.2.160 IP address. Just rewrite it.

Will look forward to news.

Ody II ANP 1.11 IP problem

Kurt Poulsen
 

After having enjoyed my new Ody 2 for a week with both OpenHPSDR Thetis and SDR Console v.3.06 both with RX and TX functioning I suddenly experience the none of the two application can initiate the radio. Switching power on Ody 2 reports ANP 1.11 and IP 192.168.2.160 and trying to ping 192.168.2.160 from a command prompt I get the message "Reply from 192.168.2.100: Destination host unreachable" but also the 4 packet sent and 4  packets received Lost=0 (I use CAT6 LAN cable between PC and Ody 2 and as said it worked earlier to day  with my fixed IP pc at 192.168.2.200 I just changed  to 192.168.2.100 to see if it made any change.

So a good hint what to do is appreciated

Kind regards

Re: Odyssey-2 in Linux - Report

Neoklis Kyriazis
 

Hello, Neoklis.
Hello David,

. I then connected it to my ISP's router and was able to access it via the
WiFi connection and I used  HPSDRProgrammer-v2-nopcap to give Ody the
default static IP of 192.168.2.160 and the computer's port the static IP of
192.168.2.100, as advised by David.
No, this configuration works only with direct connection to PC. If you are
using router's connection, you should install parameters defined router's
settings.
Well, it actually worked, via the WiFi router, with both static IP and DHCP,
e.g. I had discovery from my computer with both cases.

I then tried to connect with Ody using the direct Ethernet connection
but with DHCP
For what ? With direct connection easier to work with static IP .
Well, I could never get it to work with a static IP and direct connection, and
I just could not find out why. Must be something I was not configuring right.
I could get ping to work but not discovery.

It is not necessary but preferably. The hardware are cheap.
I am not concerned about the cost, its the trouble I always have with
customs and couriers, when importing anything other than bananas or
bathroom scales.... Someone here knows what I am talking about, still!

But I will now have to do this and I presume install Windows somewhere so
that I can use the relevant software tools to do the job.

No, you can't. The bootloader and firmware should be the same versions.
Yeah, I think this is why I bricked the Ody. Can I expect it to recover if I flash
the right boot loader and firmware?

Best regards, David.

Re: Wow! I bricked my Odyssey-2! :-(

David Fainitski
 

Sorry

This happened because you have destroyed  Bootloader in FPGA firmware.

The MCU wait for an answer from Bootloader but nothing receives.

You need restore old bootloader with  Altera Byte Blaster

David


Re: Wow! I bricked my Odyssey-2! :-(

David Fainitski
 

Hello, Neoklis

That is funny.

Odyssey is power on now but OLED is clear because bootloader, MCU fw and the main FW are different.

Now you should use Altera Byteblaster programmer for return the main firmware to previous version.

Also, if you would have Pickit 3 programmer you could update MCU FW and use Bootloader 2.0 and the latest firmware.

Read my previous reply in other topic

So, having got this far, I feel that I should try to upgrade Ody-2 to newer firmware but I rather not go as far as importing the needed hardware to reprogram with the new boot loader, since the necessary software will not run on Linux anyhow.

It is not necessary but preferably.
the hardware are cheap.

So I would like to ask, can I safely upgrade the AOP-1.10 firmware to the latest available, using only the HPSDRprogrammer and existing boot loader, and if so, will it work with a non-static IP address (under DHCP)?

No, you can't. The bootloader and firmware should be the same versions.

 If not, will it be more likely to succeed with a static IP and with a direct Ethernet-to-Ethernet connection?

You can use  DHCP or static IP addressing with any firmware versions.
Just use correct settings for success.

Best regards, David.
