Thanks. The download file name was changed by mistake.
The correct file name on the download server now matches what is in the
"Getting Started" Guide wiki.

Thanks Basil! I will give it a try.

Sorry for the confusion, I copied the script from an earlier message in this thread.
No problem Mike.

Re: Icom 706MKIIG Setup #icom #ptt

how do I configure WSJT-X, JS8 CALL and FLDIGi to use the script to
key the radio?
Look at this document:

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/docs/DRAWS_CONFIG_HF.md

wsjt-x

Set serial device (-r) & baud rate (-s) for your setup.
rigctld-wsjtx -m 3011 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 19200 -P GPIO -p 23

JS8Call (You could also use rigctl I think)

-r selects right hand connector & gpio 23

/home/pi/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh -r %1

FLdigi

* Configuration->Rig->GPIO
* For right mDin6 connector
* Select BCM 23, check box =1


I wrote the Bash script as shown and named it ptt.sh.
I don't see your script the ptt control script I use is here:

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh

You can find it on your RPi here:

~/n7nix/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh

ptt_ctrl.sh -h
Usage: ptt_ctrl.sh [-l][-r][-on][-off][-c][-h]
-l | --left Select left connector gpio
-r | --right Select right connector gpio
-on | on Turn selected gpio ON
-off | off Turn selected gpio OFF
-t | --toggle Toggle PTT state
-c | --check Check gpio state ie. read gpio
-d | --debug Turn debug on
-h display this message


Re: Icom 706MKIIG Setup #icom #ptt

Mike Kelley
 

I have been trying to setup my Raspberry Pi 4 with the DRAWS hat to operate an ICOM 706 MKIIG.  Receive and CAT control appears to work fine.  I am using the din cable and a CI-V cable.  I would like to control the transmit function using the GPIO. I am using the right port, pin 23.  I have manually toggled the transmitter on and off.  

I wrote the Bash script as shown and named it ptt.sh.   My question is how do I configure WSJT-X, JS8 CALL and FLDIGi to use the script to key the radio?

Kudos, Bryan, on the Turnkey DRAWS!

That's quite a milestone!

Re: LinBBS config issue #ax25 #bbs

mlbayx@...
 

Just wanted to give an update.  Basil you are the man!  The script you created for me worked great.  I have since left linBBS to use linBPQ.  It was for me considerably easier to configure.  I have a 2m BBS running with DRAWS driving everything on two radios.  I use an FTM-300 on my desk to do my own packet/FM/digital stuff and swapped out the TM-733 with an alinco DR-135T mkiii both of which are being managed/TNC'd by DRAWS using the script Basil created (mentioned above).  The DR-135T is the BBS radio.  I love DRAWS and the only complaint I have is when I finally get an HF radio I will have to buy another one.  Thank you to the NWDR team you guys make a great product and to Basil for all the time you have put into the DRAWS image.

Re: DRAWS Board Connectors

 

Hi Randy,
Have you ever received a reply for ths question?
I'm looking for the female HDR4X2  to work on the Accessory Connector of the DRAWS board.
He Amazon link looks promising, but I'm on the verge of spending the $12 to get and try it out
if I can't find anyone that knows for sure.
I've checked Mouser, digi-key etc but nothing comes up.

No modem but the DRAWS. I didn’t see this on previous upgrades but if nothings hurt I’ll ignore unless I can edit something to make it go away.
