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

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.

piardopc?

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

Is there any date for shipping of the cases? My previous email to the group has went unanswered for two weeks.

Re: SECOND Request Re: [nw-digital-radio] [New post] Shipping Status Update #draws #case #shipping

 

As previously mentioned, updates will be provided when we have solid information on when the manufacturer will be able to deliver.  We have gone through some revisions, and the layout of the new Pi 4 requires yet another revision, but it is being worked.

Any personal requests should go to the support form at the bottom of http://nwdigitalradio.com/support/
where it can be handled by sales/customer service.  Be sure to include the order number.

Also UDRC/DRAWS™ topics should go to https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc

New 3D print case design for DRAWS #draws #case

vk2psf@...
 

I have aded a new case design for the DRAWS Hat (Jun-2019 edition with the GPS SMA port at the back.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3743033

I may look at adding power poles to it, probably as a replacement lid design.

Nice work Alex, will you be doing one for the Pi4?

Alex,
 
Nice design.
 
Did you have one for the original DRAWS with the GPS port in the side and the power out of the end?
I would be very interested in checking that out if you had it.

Hi Jim

As far as I know, Winmor is Windows only (for now)
I have done some quick tests with the PAT Winlink client over Ardop. Should work. My tests was with a FT817.

This video could give you some help getting started:

+1 for that Alex. If you have a case with power pole out the back and GPS out the side I want one!

Compact GPS antenna? #draws #gps

Chris Metcalf
 

Taking my DRAWS on the road for the first time this weekend, and I was thinking it'd be nice to have a compact GPS antenna to save myself from having to cart the antenna and long feed line I use at home with me, at least when I'm operating out doors.

Anybody got a recommendation on an antenna they've had good experiences with?

Thanks,
Chris

Search for a Taoglas TG.08. It's passive, so you may need to make sure you have good LOS to the sky, but at least the antenna doesn't have a long whip on it.

Here is a link to the "OLD" design by N0KZ.  I haven't built it but it looks right.
