Re: #wsjtx PTT on Icom 718 #wsjtx #hamlib #icom #flrig #kx3

Jeff Marden
 

Hello All:

Unfortunately, the Icom IC-718 has only two connectors that can be used for interface (other than the mic input and the headphone jack): The 13-pin ACC connector and the CI-V jack. The CAT7200 program (for the IC-7200 or the IC-7100) uses the USB interface of the radio to create a duplex codec for audio and a pair of virtual serial channels for control, including PPT.

Interfaces like the SIgnalink have a cable that will connect to the 13-pin ACC port for audio and PPT (called SEND on the connector). So far no 13-pin connector interface for DRAWS that I can find (yet?).

There are USB-to-CI-V interface cables available which could connect to the 718 CI-V jack, but unsure whether the needed USB driver to create the virtual serial port is available for Linux/Pi. If so, than FLRIG can  do CAT control.  There are of course Windows USB drivers that are used today for this. I don't recall if WSJT-X supports the ICcom CI-V interface.

Hope this helps.

Ed,

If you are referring to XASTIR's Interface drop down window, I use the following after I select "add" which  brings up the "Interface type I/F Control"

Select AX25 TNC, which brings up "Configure AX25 TNC.
For " AX25 Device Name" I use "udr0" - remeber to start the interface.

Works for my setup using DRAWS left most 6-pin mini-DIN (the one over the RPi HDMI socket connected to a Kenwood V-71A

Re: #ax25 Getting It Started After Config #ax25

Basil,

I followed the directions in Get Started.  I think I answered a prompt incorrectly regarding AX.25.

When I run ./app_config.sh core now, I get the "Already ran" statement.

I get the same ax.25 status results as before.

So, how do I get ax25dev. service and ax25 - mheardd. service running?

Re: #wsjtx PTT on Icom 718 #wsjtx #hamlib #icom #flrig #kx3

 

Many hamlib applications can be set to use VOX to the radio directly.

Hi John,

I think will have a look at the source code for hamlib to see if I can come up with a generic way for it to do the GPIO keying when it gets the relevant command as I think that should be with in my comfort zone.  The other method I was wondering about, is would it be possible to build an app that minics VOX. The app would "listen" for audio on the relevant device and set and unset the GPIO pin. (For this I would need to do a lot more research on google :-)

Unfortunately the IC718 doesn't have PTT via CAT...
Perhaps this widget from the BPQ software collection will help out. I
have to use it with the IC-7100 to do packet.

Re: #config Purpose of dtparam=audio=on #config

Ed, Mtn West Digital and the greater DRAWS Community,  

You have a GREAT attitude Ed - we’re all here to learn.

I’m way behind most of you re: Linux & RPi chops but I am focusing on DRAWS as the next leap in Amateur Emergency Communications  functionality.

At some point  in the future the 'packaging and documentation' for DRAWS will converge with my willingness to trigger the investment and commitment to make it work and become able to pass on the capability to others.

That is my way of saying "you all keep this up - it is hugely educational being able to follow everyone’s questions about DRAWS and the community’s responses".

Cheers, thanks & 73, …dan wl7coo
