Greetings,
Have all of the backorders been processed by the targeted date of the 15th?

I ordered 12/12/18 and have yet to receive any shipping notification or device. 

Thanks

Re: [New post] DRAWS™ Turnkey Units

 

Hi Tyler,

There will be pricing for boards, kits, and turnkey units.  The working number for the turnkey units is $300, but you should see a posting on the blog in the next few days with more information.

I just received my DRAWS board and am looking forward to getting it on the air.  I appreciate having two mounting posts installed on the board.  BUT I'm disappointed that two $.05 mounting screws for firmly attaching DRAWS to the Pi were not included with the $150 board.  I had to make a 30 minute trip to the local ACE Hardware to find them.

Hello John,

Not intending to ‘jump the gun’ here but for those of us who have been waiting for the ’turnkey units’  (for circa $300), when they are ‘announced’, is there a list I ‘ll be able to put myself on to ensure I’ll have an opportunity to purchase one?

TIA & Cheers, …dan wl7coo

Those announcements show up on the blog, which I copy to this list for discussion. 

The best way to get the earliest notification is to be subscribed to the blog, so you get emails of new postings.

Re: #accessory Post Mounting Screw #accessory

 

Hi Doug,

Mounting varies depending on which case you’re using.

The upcoming kits have all of the required HW for mounting Pi, HAT and case.

Thanks,

I’m eager to get mine as well, but it will arrive when it arrives. In meantime, I’ve been using the Draws image for raspberry pi, a usb soundcard, a usb gps and a k2 aprs cable and have got a working Fldigi and aprs station as well as JS8Call. Working on getting winlink working next. Have participated in a few FSQ nets as well. 

Really appreciate the product, which is just software so far. And can’t wait to get the hardware.

You met Tak this weekend. I’ve been banging my head to get paclink-Unix to work on my Pi. It looks like I need a draws hat or the whole workstation to make this work. I’ll be picking your brain on getting the pi working. There’s a couple of use who have ordered the Draws workstation. I know it’s a trip to come to Metrotown Mall. We hang out drinking coffee work on the pi’s and promote different digital modes like Fldigi FSQ.

Feel free to pick away Don.  I will try to make it out to Metrotown Mall, though it won’t be for a few weekends now.  I’ll let you know how I make out getting WinLink working with my current setup.  I’m brand new to WinLink, so there’s a learning curve of what is WinLink to get over as well as how to get it going on the Pi.

I have been making notes on how to configure my current setup (with out the Draws Hardware, but with the Draws Software).  I also have not got it working with Tak’s Vox Box yet, but that is because I’m missing a TRRS cable. Should arrive from Amazon today or tomorrow and then I should be able to use my base station.  Once I’ve got some repeatable notes on setting this up, I’ll share them with you and come out share my findings.

Re: DRAWS™ Shipping Schedule #draws #shipping

I'm the sysop for va7tsa in Abbotsford, BC. I'm looking for something that will do what Paclink does for windows in the Winlink programs. BPQ, Pat Io does not do tactical call. So someone come in with their personal will not have it set up to connect their mail program to the IP address: using port 25 and 110. Thunderbird seems to be the only program to work. I hoping some smart young Linux guru can figure this issue out. The PI can run as an interface and send webmail using a tactical call to the Winlink Gateway. 9 positions in an EOC using the base call of the Gateway.

Hope to meet up, Chuck va7ul and I have the Draws, va7bwx and Chuck know Linux but have not used it with ham radio.  Learning about the Draws will be my main focus when it gets here. 
 sorry for the local OT

It’s not uncommon for other hats, shields, etc to come by themselves, no hardware included. If you’re going to own more than one pi, i’d Recommend getting a set of 2.5 mm standoffs on eBay. 250 pieces in a tackle box is $10 shipped. Just don’t buy from a seller named “tryggin”
