The parts arrived yesterday. When I assembled the case, I had two extra case screws — hopefully the other two were extras. The software setup was straightforward and well-documented which was awesome.
I used the supplied cable into my accessory port cable, and audio comes through fine. I followed the alsamixer instructions and my PCM is at -12.00 dB gain just before the ALC meter indicates anything. When I transmit on fldigi, my power meter has five bars (up to the S5 part of the meter) but the rig doesn’t quite sound right and I’m not being heard. I think the radio works because I just made a few contacts in the WPX contest but I don’t really know. I’m curious about your rig settings — specifically mic gain and RF power.
Rig control appears to not work at all. When I try rigctl on /dev/ttyAMA0 it doesn’t immediately fail, but none of the commands work. Same for wsjtx and fldigi — GPIO PTT works fine but nothing else. Connecting to the din-6 port on the rig doesn’t help. Any ideas on why?
Thanks in advance!
