Re: Help understanding prompts for address entry for AX.25 Ports in initial config.

Charlie Hein
 

Also, once I've run the config script, where do you go to add the addresses after the fact?

Assuming that I'm missing where to find this information, I'd be completely fine with a polite instruction to RTFM as long as you can point me to it.  I'm totally okay burying my face in the manuals.

Re: Help understanding prompts for address entry for AX.25 Ports in initial config.

I will paraphrase...but essentially it says if you know you have to put something there then put it in, other wise just press enter to use the default.

So in your case, I would just use the default...that is what I did...and I think almost everyone else did.


Help understanding prompts for address entry for AX.25 Ports in initial config.

Charlie Hein
 

I'm gonna have a million questions, I apologize right up front for that.  I will stipulate to ignorance, no question about it.  Just help me to understand, and when the light bulb finally comes on I'll help everyone I can to get there too, I swear.

Right now, I do not understand exactly what you're looking for in the startup script when you ask for addresses for ports 1 and 2 on the AX.25 setup.  Is this a stand alone network that needs to be set up and I put two IP addresses in there for the ports?  Are these actually SSID's that folks will connect to?  Are these just names used for reference?  Please explain.

Re: RMSGW and LINBPQ

J P Watters <kc9kko@...>
 

Charlie,

I am at the almost there point. Our statewide packet network is based on BPQ. 
There are various documents on the "internet" that describe the installation of LINBPQ
using DIREWOLF with takes advantage of the Direwolf's builtin KISS TNC. 

I have done the steps below that install the core components, and my next steps are to install LINBPQ (which I have yet to do)
I have tried alot of other things and my research has boiled down to the following. 

The cool part is, download nwdr16.zip, write it to a card, and boot it up,
let the initial setup wizard that autoruns on first boot run.

Then run the core setup that Basil has developed.
It can be found at https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki/8921#

Initial Config Detail

  • If you are running with an attached monitor you should see the Raspbian 'Welcome to Raspberry Pi' piwiz splash screen
    • Follow the screens as you would on any other Raspbian install.
    • When prompted to restart the RPi please do so.
Update configurations scripts
cd
cd n7nix
git pull

sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
# revert back to normal user
exit
Configure core functionality
  • Whether you want direwolf for packet functionality or run HF apps with the draws HAT do the following:
cd
cd n7nix/config
# Become root
sudo su
./app_config.sh core
  • The above script sets up the following:

    • iptables
    • RPi login password
    • RPi host name
    • mail host name
    • time zone
    • current time via chrony
    • AX.25
    • direwolf
    • systemd
  • Now reboot your RPi


Then in a terminal session, "sudo systemctl enable direwolf"
That enables the system deamon to start direwolf on boot.
Then in a terminal session, "sudo systemctl start direwolf"
which will start direwolf for the first time.
That is all that is needed to get direwolf running. 
if you run ax25-status, it will show the deamon's that are running. 
the only thing at this point will be direwolf. 

Then use the Guide  https://packet-radio.net/installing-direwolf-and-linbpq-on-raspian-stretch/
Start following the steps about 1/2 way down the page. 

 the first steps should be:
1
2
3
4
5
sudo mkdir linbpq
cd linbpq
sudo wget http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Downloads/Beta/pilinbpq
sudo mv pilinbpq linbpq
sudo chmod +x linbpq

Continue following the guide to get LINBPQ running.

After getting LINBPQ is installed and running, you can 
set it up to auto start as outlined below. 

Use this to configure LINBPQ to run automagically.

Bumping this up to see if it gets any attention.  I'm wanting to try BPQ32 with the DRAWS card and Direwolf - anyone been through this already?

Thanks Basil! I decided to order a couple of 32Gb cards just to be safe.

Re: Comments on the use of Large SD cards for DRAWS?

Basil Gunn
 

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.
RPI 3 B vs SDXC
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=155103#:~:text=The%20Pi%20has%20no%20problem,FAT32%20for%20Nobs%20to%20work.

SD, SDHC, SDXC
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2252

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.
Depends on your application, but it does sound like 'gross overkill'.

Is there any advantage to having the large amount of free space, or
pitfalls with using the SDXC cards?
In general I use an mSD card that is around twice the capacity of what I
need. My thinking, which may have no basis, is that the wear level
algorithm for the mSD card works better if it has sufficient empty
blocks to work with. Having said that in around 10 years of usage I've
only been able to wear out 2 mSD cards out of at least 100 cards that I
have used. I usually buy SanDisk or Samsung mSD cards.

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.

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

Re: Cases

Chuck - VA7UL
 

Hi Bryan,

How do I cancel an order for a case?  I tried submitting a request via the proper contact web page but have not received a response in well over a month.  I no longer have a need for the case, and I am not able to cross the closed border to pick up from my US address anyway.

I checked my PayPal account and have not seen any refund.  This refers to Order #6413, April 20, 2019.   Is there a better way to cancel the order rather than using the contact given for this process?

Many thanks,
Chuck  -  VA7UL / VA7ULD / VE1CAM

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

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

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

Rebooting did the trick for sending.

might indicate you have 2 instances of wl2kax25, wl2ktelnet or wl2kd running.
It could happen if you had some hang or other problem that leaves the
connection to the ax25 socket still connected.

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?
