The PCB is actually marked.

If you look at the solder pads under the white power connector, you'll see that one is square (the one nearest the GPS). Square = positive.

Thanks so much!


Re: +12V polarity? #12vsupply

 

OK - then the red positive should work.  After that be sure to review https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki/DRAWS%3A-Image-getting-started

Re: +12V polarity? #12vsupply

 

I don't have one of the latest shipment of boards to physically examine, but red should be positive on the leads.  I have alerted the engineer to confirm, but perhaps someone else has already wired theirs' up and can confirm?

Re: Update DRAWS™ Manager #drawsmanager

 

There is no feedback when a systemctl command is successful.  However, you can run

sudo systemctl status draws-manager

Which will tell you if it is running.

DRAWS™ Manager is a web application.  From the Pi you would open a browser and go to

http://localhost:8080

+12V polarity? #12vsupply

 

Trying to get up and running with my new DRAWS hat. A DRAWS brochure from 9/18, http://nwdigitalradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DRAWSBrochure.pdf , labels the 12V plug, looking down onto the board, with + on the left, going into the round solder pad. - on the right, going into the square solder pad. A DRAWS Brochure from 11/18, http://nwdigitalradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DRAWSBrochure-1.pdf ,  on the current website, labels the polarity as opposite. On the draws board I received a couple days ago, the red lead on the power pigtail is on the left, going to the round solder pad, black is on the right going to the square solder pad. There is also a caution under one of the #power threads to mind the polarity of the pigtail, https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/message/2227 . Which solder pad is +? the round on the left or the square on the right? My pigtail with the red lead going to the round solder pad matches the older brochure, assuming red leads are + like on powerpoles.

TIA
David

Re: Draws #xastir

Basil Gunn
 

Don,

First you need to enable the RPi on-board sound device in
/boot/config.txt. Not sure why we don't do that by default. Then use
the proper device in Xastir. I have some notes here:

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/tree/master/xastir#configure-audio

The wav files should already be installed in /usr/share/xastir/sounds.

What are you using for a sound device? Is it built into an LCD display
or is it a powered speaker?

Getting sound to work in Xastir has nothing to do with direwolf.

Re: DRAWS™ Manager Demo #drawsmanager

Fred Hirsch <Hirschfh@...>
 

Test worked great now that I know what to look for, 100% fixed.  Sorry I made it hard on you, but I learned a lot and thanks for that.
I never have programed in C, C+, or linux.  I was an old FORTRAN guy.  Somebody wanted to know what I wanted DRAWS to do with my
Kenwood TH-H710G.  I told him I just wanted it to monitor the radio on which I run APRS and have it put out WX data from my weather station.  Is there a app
for that?  

Now for HF I am keen to have it help me with RTTY and other digital modes.  Guess I will have to build a cable or have the guy who makes them
help me out.  I like the GPS/antenna which works well on the back porch.  

Thank you very much for the help.

It only saves the values, not the selected radio. 

E.g. if you select ft-817 AF, note the values. Then save. When you restart the selected values should be what you saved, but the radio pre-select will go back to default.

You need to figure out why you are not resolving the address.  This is a local network administration issue, not a draws-manager specific issue.

Try the ping tests I listed earlier.

You can also try, from a terminal on the Raspberry Pi.

cd /usr/local/var/draws-manager
sudo git pull
sudo systemctl restart draws-manager


Wait about 30 seconds and try connecting from your browser again.
