Re: G90 / HamMadeParts Cable / FLDigi

 

Hi Michael,

I’ve been away for a bit but I’m back in the lab.

What you are seeing is the CODEC Turning on and the DC Bias charging up the coupling Cap. At this point yes you should see a sine wave. This at least verifies the connection.

There was an issue with incorrect components being stuffed on some units. You may have one of these.

We can either try to troubleshoot it or just RMA it so I can check it out.

Re: G90 / HamMadeParts Cable / FLDigi

Hello Basil,
I tried running the test. It seems left or right channel still does not have a signal. Being that the Raspberry Pi has at least two sound drivers on it, I made sure that the UDRC soundcard was the default system.

I also use the DRAWs Manager page and set all levels to zero, and also in the Audio driver page (Right Click on speaker icon on RPi task bar) I set all IN2 to 10k. I noticed there was both Positive and Negative, so both were set to 10k. I hope I did this correctly.

Please advise, and thank you for your help,
-Michael

To rule out left/right port connector problems:

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/tree/master/deviation

Use n7nix/deviation/measure_deviate.sh

This script will put a tone on either left or right connector.
ie.
./measure_deviate.sh -c left
./measure_deviate.sh -c right

Set alsa controls:
LO Driver Gain left & right to 0.00
IN2 left & right to 10 Kohm

Check both left & right mDin6 pin 1 for each of the measure_deviate.sh
runs. Verify that you are using pin 1 of the mDin6 connector.

Thank you for the reply Basil,

Just to be fair, I did a fresh install, and I still have the same
results. I also have no audio of any kind coming from pin 1. My 'scope
shows nothing, but interestingly, FLDigi show the waves internally on
it's waterfall. I am only able to make the G90 respond to PTT, but
still with no signal (CW or RTTY) being transmitted from the radio. I
can certainly see received CW on the waterfall, so at least the audio
Input seems to be working properly. Here is the output that you have

Re: AX.25 Desktop Icons #a25

Basil Gunn
 

Larry,

Ran split_toggle.sh so that direwolf again controls both channels and
I gather that the AX25-control icon would still be useful in this mode
to start/stop AX25. Is my assumption correct?
Yes. Good assumption.

In the near future you will be able to more easily control each port
ie. on/off 1200/9600 baud.

Hadn't looked into it before.  I am now, as of 30 minutes ago, install script worked fine, status looked good, UHF/VHF radios work great, will test HF when I get an antenna back up.

Re: AX.25 Desktop Icons #a25

Four points follow.

First, I am not a gui-guy in the least, so feel free to disregard
anything I have to say about this. Hoop, K9QJS, made an attractive icon &
I took my lead from him. He is a MAC-man so in my domain he had cred.

Second, Thank you Jim VA7SHG. It took my brain a while to come to the same
conclusion you mention.

Third, All my stuff is open source. Just change a script to make it do
what ever you like. I just checked in some changes to
n7nix/systemd/bin/ax25-toggle.sh to make swapping the sense of the icon
easier.

# get updated ax25-toggle.sh script

cd
cd n7nix
git pull

# put script in directory where it gets used

cd config
./bin_refresh.sh

# edit script
cd
cd bin
# edit ax25-toggle.sh script
# Change these two lines at the beginning of the script

ICON_START_FILE="/home/pi/bin/ax25-start.desktop"
ICON_STOP_FILE="/home/pi/bin/ax25-stop.desktop"

ie. do this:

ICON_STOP_FILE="/home/pi/bin/ax25-start.desktop"
ICON_START_FILE="/home/pi/bin/ax25-stop.desktop"

Fourth, Why aren't you using split-channel so that one channel is used
by direwolf for packet & the other is used by some HF program. I will
be checking in a bunch of changes in the next few days to make
split-channel & port baud rate changing a lot easier.

Everyone please stay healthy.

/Basil

My two cents on this. I would disagree. I feel that the icon should
represent what the icon is going to do. So if it has an X on it, that
means it’s going to to stop AX25. If it doesn’t have an X, then, the
it’s going to start AX.25.

I also have conky running, which is supposed to represent the current status of things. I don’t feel that an icon is supposed to represent a status. It’s supposed to represent an action.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi Basil,

I seem to concur with J P Watters as it is a bit counter intuitive. For those that don't run headless, it seems it would be better in the GUI for the icon to indicate the current state of the AX25 services. I am also using the KM4ACK conky, having the AX25-control icon with an X through it while the conky indicates that the AX25 services are active is just plain confusing. No need to change the scripts, just swapping the start/swap icons does the trick.

Still no news ?

Fabien, F4IDL
 

Hello,
I've asked, end of last year, for a cancellation of the case order I did. I've never had any news.

Now that the case is produced, will i get one or will i be reimbursed ? I understand you have a lot to do, but i'd like to know where I'm going.
I tried to use the contact page on the site, i never had any answer.

What will happen ?

Thank you.
