Comments on the use of Large SD cards for DRAWS?

Charlie Hein
 

Haven't seen this posted anywhere so I figured I'd ask here.  I have a couple of large (200 GB) SDXC cards I could dedicate to this project.  However, I read in the documentation that the minimum size is only 16 GB, so I'm wondering if this would be a gross overkill.  Is there any advantage to having the large amount of free space, or pitfalls with using the SDXC cards?

Re: No Sound Cards with UDRC and aplay -l [PROBLEM SOLVED]

 

Today I did an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and low and behold, the UDRC has returned.

Re: Update for ADC Config File #sensors #adc

Bryan,

 

That’s the problem! Most of the critical lines are missing in that file.

 

Mine reads:

chip "ads1015-*"

label in3 "User ADC Differential“

label in4 "+12V"               

label in6 "User ADC 1"

label in7 "User ADC 2"

compute in4 ((48.7/10)+1)*@, @/((48.7/10)+1)

 

Nothing about label ln5 or the “compute” for that line. I’ll create those lines and see what happens.

Bryan and John,

Essentially the same as yours Bryan! The one line different says:

Same as on the Dashboard.

 

The very first thing I did when I re-checked it just now was to update the DRAWS manager “just in case”. I also came back and rebooted the Pi just in case and it still reads in5: +2.50 V. I also had run the manager update yesterday, but had not rebooted – same result. 

 

I wonder if being behind one image version might be an issue? I have lost track, but think this is v16.

 

Also, are you both running Pi3’s or also Pi4’s?

Bryan,

 

That’s very interesting! Here is what the new board I just received is reporting:

 

I see “in5: +2.50V” not “+5V: +5.06V” on that top line. Maybe I need to run an update of code here?

Jack,

 

I just ran DRAWS Manager with the updated config and it works fine.

John will add it to a future release, after he finishes his new home in Kingston WA

Bryan,

 

Quick Question on that: Has John implemented this in the DRAWS Manager? Does not appear to be the case. At the bottom of current version, the status bar says:

 

Digital Radio Amateur Work Station | Adapter: bcm2835 I2C adapter • +12V: +13.68 V • in5: +2.50 V • User ADC 1: +0.01 V • User ADC 2: +0.00 V 

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.2 | CPU Temp: 108.24° F (42.36° C) • Uptime: 21 hrs 49 mins • Load AVG: 1m:1.07 5m:1.19 15m:1.17 

 

Not in a hurry to do this, but the replacement board is working well… Many thanks.

Hello All,

DRAWS Has an on-board ADC to monitor the 12V supply. Sometime after the first run, 5V monitoring was added, but the config file wasn't updated so the sensors command doesn't work correctly.

the fix is to change /etc/sensors.d/draws as follows:

pi@K7UDR:/etc/sensors.d $ cat draws 

#DRAWS uses the TL024 Which is SW Compatible with thw ADS1015

#It's an 8 Channel ADC, but only 4 Channels are pinned out

 

chip "ads1015-*"

        label in4 "+12V"

 label in5 "+5V"

label in6 "User ADC 1"

label in7 "User ADC 2"

compute in4 ((48.7/10)+1)*@, @/((48.7/10)+1)

        compute in5 ((10/10)+1)*@, @/((10/10)+1)

 

rpi_volt-isa-0000

Adapter: ISA adapter

in0:              N/A  

 

ads1015-i2c-1-48

Adapter: bcm2835 I2C adapter

+12V:        +13.52 V  

+5V:          +5.06 V  

User ADC 1:   +0.00 V  

User ADC 2:   +0.00 V

Rebooting did the trick for sending.

Now waiting for the return, peer to peer response.

It could happen if you had some hang or other problem that leaves the

Since I have never seen this problem I suggest you reboot and try it
again.

I suspect you would see this error when trying to connect to an RMS
Gateway as well.

Hi Bryan,

 

I updated /etc/sensors.d/draws as indicated and I am now seeing that the +5V sensor is reading +1.17V.

 

I have the early adopter card.

 

Any idea why the voltage might be reading low?

OK. That is what I was using.  The ?? must have been added by the email program.

This syntax sends to the RMS Gateway which it looks like you can't
connect with:

wl2kax25 -c WA9APQ-10

Hearing a station with mheard does not guarantee that you will be able
to connect to it with a Winlink client.

I am struggling to send email peer to peer where the end station is
using PC based WinLink and only has the call sign AB9DEF without the -10.

wl2kax25 -c WA9APQ?? This returns : connect(): Address already in use
wl2kax25 -c WA9APQ-10 This times out

I see the station when I run mheard

What am I missing?
