Hi Basil,
I have run through the instructions and loaded two different 16G cards. The initial setup and ax.25 scripts are failing.
I went back to Beta 11 and it wall works as expected.

Basil,

Ran through the install twice.

The first time by trying the long update/upgrade path in the documentation
over BETA 9 which has been running ok on my early release hat. Did not work.
I wound up not being able to reach the DRAWS/udrc sound system so could not
get Direwolf going. I then followed the direction to fix the sound driver
issue and tried again, no joy.

Second time I started with a fresh micro SD card and went through the full
install as per instructions and wound up with the same issue. Ran the sound
driver correction script and again same result. Please see the attached text
file.

Possible that I messed a step somewhere - but I have used all betas since
day 1 and this is the first time I have had this problem.

Beta12 release announcement

Before you update your image, please capture any configuration changes
you might have made like current alsamixer settings.
Run alsa-show.sh & make a copy of result. Note a minimum
microSD card size of at least 16GB is now recommended.

Latest image current_beta.zip has been updated to draws_beta12.zip at
this location:

http://images.nwdigitalradio.com/downloads

There is an alternative to downloading a new image. You can use the updater
scripts for either updating everything or just Xastir. Updating all
programs can take a long time.

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

If you decide to use this image please follow the "Getting Started
Guide" from the UDRC Wiki.

Re: Icom 706MKIIG Setup #icom #ptt

 

Glad you got it operational Josh. I couldn't have done it without the help of John Hays here and Jordan Sherer who developed Js8Call. There are many flavors of the Icom 706's still out there. This is the best way to "KEY" the radio and use the 6 pin data DIN.

Hi to all contributors!

I just ordered a case and I would take the chance also to say a big THANK YOU!

I appreciate a lot all the work you are doing and to spread a little bit the fun I have with DRAWS, I just sent in an article for the Austrian HAM journal (https://www.oevsv.at/downloads/)

Re: Early Adopter #draws Aluminum Case #draws

 

Bryan,
First, thanks for the efforts that all at NW put in.
Some seem to forget that besides the many hours you guys put in you have
"real" jobs and "real" lives.
Next, many Alpha, Beta or first run boards come naked, no enclosure.
Experimentation means that, there will be changes.
Also, this is a hobby! This is for our fun. Right?

Do any of the guys giving the beating even think of your time and
money that you put into this hobby to help US have fun.
Oops! I used that word -- Think , nope there is not a lot of thought
put into what it takes to conceive, design and produce
a product.

I for one really appreciate the work that you, John and the others do
for us, Please don't let a few Old Grouches deter you.
Keep up the great work, weather they come with enclosures or not.

To all of our DRAWS Early adopters:

I’m recovering well from the beating I’ve taken over the last day, thanks for asking.

The Problems:

First the easy one, Power Pigtail:

The board was designed with a power pigtail and Right Angle connector. The case allows for a better solution by using a 5.5 X 2.1 Socket which the pigtail solders to. You can then use standard cables used in other radios and POE IP Cameras to connect to 12V.

In order to keep the pigtail inside the case, new boards will have vertical connectors. For early boards you can either keep your existing power setup or bend the right angle (RA) connector vertical, which is what I’ve done in the photos. Note: some RA connectors have extended wings which you can snip off.

Now for the hard one:

In order to put the red top over the black base, you need to spread open the top and spring it over the GPS connector. This wasn’t too bad on the first prototypes, but after we went to a thicker aluminum (which is definitely better), it became even more difficult to do without permanently bending the top. This is a non-starter.

The right solution is to move the connector to the end, so it slides into the base. We have scrapped the remaining FABs and implemented this for the upcoming run …

… but that left all of you out in the cold (or acrylic if you prefer). Which as you have indicated, isn't how it was promoted.

What we are going to do:

By changing the opening for the connector from a hole to a horizontal slot, you can slide the top on from the end.

As for the discount, we were originally going to offer the $25 Case for $20 but even though this short run will cost more to produce, we’re discounting the cases further to $15.

Assuming this is acceptable to the majority of users, we’ll implement it this week and take orders thru the end of April. This is a one time manufacturing run as a thank you to our early adopters. We will manufacture only as many units as we have orders for, so be sure to place your order promptly.

Thanks for your understanding,
Bryan K7UDR

Re: #draws Aluminum Case #draws

 

Anyone who has a board now has the SMA along the side with the mini DIN connectors. Future shipments have the new layout. 

The case is for all boards shipped to this point.

I thought I documented this elsewhere on the group but here goes:

With respect to WiFi/Bluetooth. There is an aperture in the case near the Module similar to other metal cases for the Pi.

In a casual test with 2 units, 1 in case and the other bare, 1m apart. The cased unit reported signal strength 2dB better. I then swapped the units position and recorded the same result.

This doesn’t mean that the case improves wifi as all casual rf measurements within a few dB are subject to many other factors.

OTOH it does indicate that wifi is usable with the case.
