Re: Pac-Link account password does not match #paclink-unix #pac-link

Kevin K. - N7KJK
 

I changed my password in WinLink a couple times and tested with WinLink on my Windows PC. I set the password with all lower case characters because of the nature of the reported issue.  Tested actual invalid entry in WinLink to make sure my new password was actually updated throughout the network. 
Tonight I'll boot up the PI and check on the version number, then attempt the git pull as you indicated.   Thanks
Kevin


Re: Pac-Link account password does not match #paclink-unix #pac-link

There was a change make to paclink-unix source after Beta 13 was posted
that fixed a case bug in the Winlink password. The file that changed was
wl2k.c.

Verify that your password is correct including upper & lower case,
look at line containing: wl2k-password=
cat /usr/local/etc/wl2k.conf

You can verify the version of paclink-unix you are running by:
wl2ktelnet -v

The fix for the password case is in version 0.8
To update to the latest version of paclink-unix do the following:

cd /usr/local/src/paclink-unix
git pull
./buildall.sh

Test paclink-unix version number has changed to 0.8 by running
wl2ktelnet -v

then

wl2ktelnet

Send me the console output of the above command.

I've purchased & successfully booted Raspbian with 64 GiB & 128 GiB SD
cards (Samsung EVO select). I believe the limitation is the Ext4 file
format so 1 exbibyte (EiB). The largest micro SD card I've found is 1
terabyte (TB).

Re: DRAWS FT817 no TX audio

I've found that I need to run the `setalsa-ft817.sh` script that was
included in the ~/bin directory, after that, I opened the DRAWS
Manager and changed the Input from Receiver Signal Source to "DISC
(pin4)" to get my 817 to work as expected with the hat. YMMV

Matt,

Also make sure your width is set to 3000Hz
I notice on your radio it says LAP on the screen, upper left
Do you have an amp connected?
Maybe try the radio without a tuner or amp connected.

Is that written somewhere? I recall reading an April thread about beta 10 that said otherwise so what should I reference to keep up?

Thanks for the response Tim.

I tried resetting my radio and also reflashed the DRAWS image. I've confirmed that I have the same menu settings as you, and that I'm using the left channel.

I've included a screenshot of the DRAWS Manager settings and have attempted sending both prior to and after configuration. I've also confirmed that Direwolf is not running.

My FT-891 PTT is still triggered but the power output never changes from zero while transmitting. I've also confirmed that I've not been heard on PSKReporter.

I've tried both 6 pin cables, in case one was defective, and both 6 pin ports on the DRAWS hat. The only thing I've yet to try is to swap out the USB cable.

Following that I'm all out of ideas.

Have you checked the draws manager and make sure AF (pin5) for your channel.

Re: DRAWS FT817 no TX audio

LA9KOA - Karl
 

What is the mode of your 817 while TX?
I think it should be "DIG", otherwise it might not use sound input from the data port on back.

You can set this up from WSJT-X by choosing USB-D (can't remember exact description now) 
Choosing USB for mode could make the radio take sound input from mic and not from data port.


Re: DRAWS FT817 no TX audio

Richard Waller <rewaller@...>
 

Ken, did you look at Draws manager? That has output adjustments . Also the power slider on the right of the wsjt-x screen can be adjusted. Rick. Ka4ohm

Did you try DRAWS ™ Manager?


You may want to also do a factory reset on the radio.
