I'm still holding tight for the metal case I ordered.

Rpi slow with draws hat

Christopher Warren
 

Ever since I installed  my Draws hat the RPI 3b+ slowed down and it takes ages to boot and to shutdown. During booting the CPU % reaches 100% before recovering.

Yesterday I was using fldigi and during transmitting the text actually paused for a while and then  continued.  This also occurred during receiving with lost characters. 
Has anyone experienced this?

Draws hat two weeks old defective

Michael Narges
 

I received the Draws on or about June 28.  It performed flawlessly until a couple days ago. 
After using it till about midnight, I discovered that it was essentially dead the next morning.
Draws-Manager said it could not be found. There was zero audio to my Ft818.  The gps no longer
functioned in gpsmon or cgps, including a myriad of other issues.  Pi continued to perform fine.  
I hooked up the Signalink and was able to work as before. I vbelieve that the board has quit.  
I sent a message via the NW Digital site and no response. Please exchange this board for a working replacement.
Please advise.

Sincerely,

Mike Narges WF8O

Re: Pi ft817 help please

 

You want two leads. The mini-DIN 6 cable that comes with the DRAWS™ HAT (or any similar cable) and a CT-62 equivalent cable for CAT control. (many offered on eBay and Amazon). 

Go into the UDRC and DRAWS ™ subgroup to this forum for help and advice.

Hi Andrew,

 

Please take a look at: http://nwdigitalradio.com/draws/

Good explanation and starting point.

The DRAWS + RPi combo works well with my FT-817.

Hi Andrew,

Apparently, the word DRAWS is an acronym for Digital Radio Amateur WorkStation.  I know you and I would expect the first sentence after "What Is DRAWS?"  to contain that information but it does not -- go figure.  The picture caption has this information in a light grayish color.

Re: Motorola Quantar & digital modes

Mike,
what all was involved (hardware and configuration) in the “Frankenstein” setup using the Quantar for the Tx and the other radio for the Rx. I have 2 VHF Quantars and would love to be able to use one on DMR. 

Re: Motorola Quantar & digital modes

Roger
 

Mike,
you can disregard my last post. I reread your post and realize it was a quote from another post elsewhere. The “Frankenstein” wasn’t yours for me to ask about.
Unless someone else knows what that config was for the Quantar and other radio, sorry for the confusion.

3D drawings?

Dave C
 

I'm considering using the DRAWS HAT in a device I'm designing.  I want to include it in my 3D design, but I can't find dimensions.  Do 3D drawings exist?

Re: Draws hat two weeks old defective

Michael Narges
 

As you suggested, I sent my dead Hat to you a couple weeks ago.  Please advise regarding turn around time.  Also, please also replace the power pigtail because the red lead broke off. Please let me know what I owe.

Thanks,

Mike. WF8O
