Not to put too sharp of a point on it, but Buster and Pi4 have been out just short of two months.  Downloading the stretch Compass gives you something that can not be updated.  Is there any projection when drivers for Buster and Pi 4 will be available or even a downloadable image.

As for the Pi 4 heat problem, just use the PoE HAT between the pi and DRAWS and put a small heat sink on the cpu.  It will not go above 58 C on a fully loaded system.

Re: Using the DRAWS hat with a Raspberry Pi 4 #yaac #replacecompass #draws #install #js8call

 

I did this just yesterday
(from memory - not at system right now)
Download and burn Buster onto SD Card
Let it boot up and update/upgrade

sudo reboot
sudo apt install git build-essential
cd
cd n7nix/config
sudo ./image_install.sh
sudo apt install --fix-broken
sudo reboot

After boot try
aplay -l

Use n7nix scripts to install/config applications.
DRAWS™ Manager is at https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/draws-manager

Re: no transmit #wsjt-x

Basil Gunn
 

Rob,

Verify that transmit is working with the simplest program possible.
Use the measure_deviate.sh script to output a tone on a specific
channel. Assuming you are using the mDin6 connector closest to the gps
SMA connector. If you tune a second radio to the same frequency as the
first you should hear a tone.

cd
cd n7nix/deviation
./measure_deviate.sh -c left

To see the command line parameter options:
./measure_deviate.sh -h

Also send the console output of showudrc.sh

Re: ARDOP or software similar to WinLink (HF mail) #winlink

I have ARDOP setup and running with Pat on the DRAWS hat using beta 13. I've made a video tutorial, but need to edit before posting. It will release on my YouTube channel Tuesday Aug 27 at 1600 central.

Re: ARDOP or software similar to WinLink (HF mail) #winlink

I'm writing an ARDOP transport for paclink-unix that runs on the RPi.
I use ardopc RPi (piardopc) from here:
http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Downloads/Beta/

I test that with ARIM from here:
http://www.whitemesa.net/arim/arim.html#inst

Currently for winlink using ARDOP on an RPi you can use PAT or LinBPQ

I think there is also a build shell script in Beta13 for ARDOP, but I have not used it.


Re: ARDOP or software similar to WinLink (HF mail) #winlink

 

I'm not sure if it's included, but there is an open source implementation of ARDOP that can be compiled to run natively on the Pi. Check here: http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Documents/ARDOPC.html

Edited

Over the air testing revealed that what I was seeing here is mirrored over 200 miles away, so it is not likely a local RFI issue on RX here.

Then, I hooked up an external high quality sound card via USB and an external radio interface which keys PTT by USB serial.  Clean audio out using FLDIGI.  Clean reception locally, and clean reception verified by the remote station.

Definitely an audio hardware issue or an audio config issue.


Re: [udrc] UDRC-II squelch on the Yaesu FT-897D → Resolved, DRAWS does *not* require this

Do I need a pull-up on the SQL lines like I did for the UDRC-II in order
to have normal audio on the FT-857D/897D?
Well, I tried it at first with my FT-897D, got no audio, then tried
switching to an Icom IC-706MkIIG… still no joy.

I was using arecord/aplay and netcat for testing.

I have a Pi 3 with a UDRC-II board as well, which I had previously used
with the Icom set for packet radio, so *knew* it worked. This is a
completely separate computer, so I shut down the Pi I had the DRAWS on,
put it to one side, and plugged the UDRC-II equipped Pi, plugging it
into the same radio and power supply with the same cables.

Bingo… I had audio, badly distorted, but some tweaks in alsamixer, and I
had Triple M Brisbane's calling of the football coming through clear via
the UDRC-II. I swapped back to the other Pi with the DRAWS…

Comparing the mixer settings, the UDRC-II had the ADC Fine Gain Adjust
(ADCFGA) turned off, whereas the DRAWS had them turned on. Soon as I
turned those off, I got audio.

Swapping back to the FT-897D, it worked there too. No removal of SQL
pins or pull-ups necessary, I had audio from both the set directly, and
audio from my netbook. I didn't try watching the SQL pin to see if I
could detect squelch… that'll be another day.

So executive summary:
- There is no pull-up or modification necessary with the FT-897D, it
worked out-of-the-box with the supplied cables as-is.
- Initially I had no audio at all, this was due to ADCFGA being turned
on, audio came through when this was turned off.

Undulating transmit audio in HF programs #draws

Mitch Winkle
 
Edited

DRAWS image Beta13

I am getting output audio which undulates when using either FLDIGI or JS8Call (or even when just using the TUNE button in FLDIGI).

Has anyone run across this?

My draws-manager has the other radio port OFF and I have set TX audio levels based on the mW p-p value of my radio (60).

Receive audio on the Left radio port is great and decodes like a champ. 

Receive audio when enabling and using the Right radio port is a very very low level.  It's so low FLDIGI will not show a waterfall with the lower limit set to -20 in the program.  the same audio levels were used on the Right port as the left port.


Re: no PTT with FT857D, DRAWS HAT and 6 pin miniDIN cable

 

I am not where I can look right now, but seem to recall WSJT (FT8) does not implement GPIO PTT, so you have to use CAT through hamlib or VOX.  Fldigi has a setting for GPIO PTT on a tab beyond the CAT setup.

Does the RED Led light?

I am using DRAWS software version "DRAWS_BETA13" from May 7, 2019.  I connected to DRAWS MANAGER and set the receive & transmit levels there.  I am using a single 6 pin miniDIN cable plugged into the left connector and have both transmit & receive audio working properly.  But I have no PTT.  If I push the mic button on the rig I can transmit the tones.  I am using the DIG mode on the rig.  I have tried every menu selection combination in the config menus for FT8 and FLDIGI and still no PTT.  Any help or suggestions are welcome!
