Is there another thread where this has continued?  Or did it just die off in December?

I haven't heard anything since on the subject.  I know that last summer Jonathan had added the UDRC but I don't know if it made it into the main stream code or stayed 'experimental'. All I can state at this point is that it hasn't made it into Pi-Star yet.

Audio Debug?

Steve McGrane <temporarilyoffline@...>
 

I'm not getting what I think would be the right audio in/out from the DRAWS.  I've tried a second cable and the second port.  I get some input, but not 100% and I get no output in FT8 or JS8Call.  When I'm in FLDIGI, I get no waterfall, but I can hit the tuner function and it will transmit a tuning sound and my remote signal strength meter registers TX as well.

Is there anyway to run a command and get some test output?

Regards,
- Steve

To output an audio tone on either the left or right draws connector use
the measure_deviate.sh script. Documentation here:
https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/tree/master/deviation

Script here:
n7nix/deviation/measure_deviate.sh

Also run:
alsa-show.sh

Do these settings match the radio you are using?
ie. did you use John's web based draws-manager?

I had to re-run my setalsa-ft891.sh script and that reset the levels to something working.  Been a while since I touched that.

Re: DRAWS Video #4

Steve,

Have enjoyed your videos.  Am a computer guy but not much UNIX background.  Have gotten a 3b+ up and running with an ICOM 7300.

Wondering what your opinion is of the value of the DRAWS HAT is with that radio given that it already has the equivalent of a signal link built in.

Re: DRAWS Video #4

Ryan W Leathers
 

Michael asked the question about the usefulness of the DRAWS with a rig like the IC-7300.

The DRAWS is much more than a sound card and digital modes interface.  It is a convenient way to get highly accurate GPS position, clock, run a variety of interesting applications for rig control and digital modes without a bulky PC or laptop, and it does all this using the same 12v systems you already have for portable / mobile use.

The question for me is not about duplication of signaling style capabilities. Rather it is whether or not one plans on mobile / portable operation. This is where features like the GPS, small form factor, and power really put the DRAWS in a class of its own, at least in my opinion.

There are other ways to run digital modes on Linux in the shack, so DRAWS is just another option there. But in the field it's a different story. Nothing else comes close.

Re: DRAWS Video #4

Steve, N9VW
 

As Brian put it in one of his recent presentations about the DRAWS platform, the intent is in "putting the Amateur back in Amateur Radio". This is rather fitting given that the R-Pi was devised for much the same purpose, to be educational.

The DRAWS platform is an experimenters board (HAT) with loads of capabilities as Ryan noted. Being based on Linux provides a learning opportunity for the OS of choice for many things going forward. Linux is reasonably easy to learn. The nice thing is that learning Linux on the DRAWS does not limit where you can go with Linux in general.

It all comes down to if you just want to plug something in and  use the tools provided to play radio or if you want to open the hood, dig around in the innards, get your hands dirty and learn more about what you are doing at a lower level.  All while bringing new technologies to play.

Happy Trails,
Steve, N9VW

Re: [New post] Shipping Status Update #shipping #draws #case

Dave Slotter, W3DJS
 

Hi,

Is there any date for shipping of the D.R.A.W.S. aluminum cases yet? I was hoping to have one by Field Day, as I brought my Raspberry Pi with D.R.A.W.S. hat to FD, naked, because no case had arrived.

Please advise, and thanks.

New Raspberry Pi 4 compatibility with DRAWS HAT #support

Dreuge@...
 

The new Raspberry PI 4 has just been released.  The PI4 is a serious upgrade over the PI3B.  I'm guessing and hoping that DRAWS HAT is compatible, but I would like confirmation.    So, will the DRAWS HAT work with the PI4 or will we need to wait for an updated DRAWS HAT for PI4 use?

In the Raspberry Pi 4 thread, see the post from John Hays.

I tried searching on " Raspberry Pi 4" and did not find any discussion.  As for thread, I'm guessing you mean topics, as I don't see option or mention of threads on the proups.io system.  I do thank you foir the reply, I'll try searching on John Hayes.   I guessing that there is a way to navigate this system better than I'm aware.

Dreuge, that topic and most other discussions about DRAWS are in the "udrc" subgroup of nw-digital-radio. Perhaps you weren't searching the subgroup.

Hi All,
 
The new Raspberry Pi 4 has some interesting features and we certainly will be looking at it, however, we at NW Digital Radio do not get any advance engineering information from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, so we must also wait for shipments to have test units.

In the short term, we recommend sticking with the currently supported models of Pis unless you are familiar with building software and self support.
 
We are also looking at updating the design for the production (non-beta) DRAWS™ aluminum cases to accommodate the 2, 3, and 4 Pi motherboards.

Stay tuned.

Is it possible to run piardopc by John Wiseman with the DRAWS hat? If so, what startup parameters would I use?
