Hi Ed,

 

We don’t know yet.

 

As an owner of one of those radios, I am trying to figure out if this is the case. You may or may not need something else. Hope to have some answers fairly soon. NW Digital does not have models of every radio to test, so our “user experience” will hopefully help them with the growing pains.

 

Don’t let our (early adopters) mumbling distract you. I will be the first to tell you that I could be way off base on my guesses. Probably am.

I have an older FT-450......and my DRAWS will arrive as part of the next batch......

 

Are you saying that I still need some additional equipment to go between the RPi and the

radio along with the cable that goes from DRAWS to the radio?

Hi Jack, the ft-450D is the new version and it has the same issues of being over driven.  Tigertronics used to have you put a resistor inside the signal link box to cure it on the audio out line. But they no-longer have that mod on their website. Folks were ruining the socket inside. I have one Signal Link that I have soldered the mod inside it, as over many years or reconfiguring for different radios with resistor and wire jumpers, I ruined the socket. Now I have 2 signal links and 2 Yaesu SCU17s which add CAT control lines as well.

Basil,

Found what I thought I remembered about IC-7000 data port sensitivity in the
SignaLink FAQ at www.tigertronics.com. Obviously this will have an impact on
DRAWS setup and operation with the IC-746Pro and the FT-450 as well.
Naturally, older radios will get pressed into field service - these just
happen to be commonly available and are "shelf spares" in quite a few
shacks. I am going to see if I can find more about the solutions to this
problem:

"ATTENTION IC-7000, IC-746PRO and FT-450 Users - Some customers have
reported that these radios have unusually sensitive Data Ports, which can
make adjustment of the SignaLink's TX knob somewhat difficult.  If this is
the case with your radio, then *you should find that the procedure above
where you install jumper JP4 and lower the Wave volume control resolves the
issue*.  However, you may also need to turn the radio's RF Power menu
setting down for better control.  A power setting of 35 to 45 watts usually
works well for 25 to 35 watts of actual RF output as measured on a watt
meter, or the radios Power Output meter. "

Check this out by John Ackermann N8UR
Look for: "The No-Test-Equipment Packet Adjustment System"
https://www.febo.com/packet/layer-one/transmit.html

Do you have a handy talky?
use the measure_deviate script: n7nix/deviation/measure_deviate.sh
Pick a tone, bring-up alsamixer Set PCM to 0db & drop LO Drive until there
is no clipping ie. no distortion or just follow John Ackermann's suggestion.

I don't have an answer but your description is a good data point.

So PCM set that low is very suspicious. It means you are not using many
bits of the CODEC. I would play with returning PCM at least close to  zero &
dropping LO Driver Gain down.

Julian,

 

We have an FT-817nd en route to Bryan's lab for him to be able to duplicate the Yaesu setup.  It should arrive later today.  We will try to have an answer for you after he takes a look at it.

 

Yes, we do test various modes, but we don't have every radio immediately available.

 

I have an 817 myself, but I am antenna challenged at the moment. (My house is for sale, and all of my external antennas are taken down, except the garage repeater -- plus I have a very high noise level here, part of the reason I am planning to move.)

Hello Operators
I've been trying for the better part of four days to get the Yaesu ft-891 and Yaesu ft-817 to work on HF digital modes, correctly with the DRAWS hat. Many of the answers to the questions operators are asking are scattered around the forums in dozens of different threads. This is beyond frustrating! I would suggest building a Wiki specifically for the DRAWS hat called "Getting started". That would solve my first problem which is documentation, and being forced to read through mostly irrelevant threads to find the jewels. 

I've already run the scripts to set the levels. I've disabled ax25 and direwolf. I changed the settings from the 9600 packet port to the data line in mentioned in John and Bryans thread. I've also read through Basils threads about troubleshooting. Most of those are direwolf ax.25relsted threads What I'm left with is a pretty horrific audio I/O problem.
On transmit: When I transmit, I never get a clean signal. When I lower the levels I get some sort of oscillation. There is no sweet spot. it's either too much or too little.
On the receipt side, even with the cables unplugged there's a 30 DB noise level emanating from the DRAWS hat. Signals are barely seen in the waterfall, and decoding is ridiculously poor.
If I plug in my signalink, my miniproSC or even the USB audio interface attached to the wolphilink, it's no problem to get clean audio, and to start decoding stations I could barely see in the waterfall. I've done this with js8 call and fldigi, which both work perfectly with a signalink and zlp miniprosc on the DRAWS image.

I could really use some troubleshooting help.

Setting up auto time with draws gps #ntp #chrony #gps #clock #battery

Bob Orrett <boborrett@...>
 

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas,
This has most likely been covered before but I can't find it. How do I get the system time to automatically set from the draws gps at bootup without internet connection.

Re: Status: IC-7000 Audio Levels for V/UHF and HF modes #draws #ic7000 #hfmodes

Basil,

Found what I thought I remembered about IC-7000 data port sensitivity in the
SignaLink FAQ at www.tigertronics.com. Obviously this will have an impact on
DRAWS setup and operation with the IC-746Pro and the FT-450 as well.
Naturally, older radios will get pressed into field service - these just
happen to be commonly available and are "shelf spares" in quite a few
shacks. I am going to see if I can find more about the solutions to this
problem:

"ATTENTION IC-7000, IC-746PRO and FT-450 Users - Some customers have
reported that these radios have unusually sensitive Data Ports, which can
make adjustment of the SignaLink's TX knob somewhat difficult. If this is
the case with your radio, then *you should find that the procedure above
where you install jumper JP4 and lower the Wave volume control resolves the
issue*. However, you may also need to turn the radio's RF Power menu
setting down for better control. A power setting of 35 to 45 watts usually
works well for 25 to 35 watts of actual RF output as measured on a watt
meter, or the radios Power Output meter. "

#draws #ic7000 #hfmodes


First of all, thanks for all the time you are putting in.
See suggestion for PCM, LO Drive gain below.

Tried to take a scientific/stepwise approach with setting the DRAWS
board audio out today.

I went through the entire level and deviation check routine again
today and wound up with very similar settings to my previous attempts.
I then tested direwolf VHF-FM first and then after disabling AX25,
fldigi and wsjt-x on HF. Results "ain't purty", but at least everything
is being consistent.

Software function status:

VHF - with direwolf/Xastir transmitting and receiving on the local
packet network does work .

Comment: I don't really have a an easy/better way to test than
function on APRS network locally. I have a sense that the audio may be
high, but I won't know until I have time to putter with Spectrum Lab.
It will become my "Deviation Meter" with an IC-7100 functioning as my
"sensor".

Check this out by John Ackermann N8UR
Look for: "The No-Test-Equipment Packet Adjustment System"
https://www.febo.com/packet/layer-one/transmit.html

Do you have a handy talky?
use the measure_deviate script: n7nix/deviation/measure_deviate.sh
Pick a tone, bring-up alsamixer Set PCM to 0db & drop LO Drive until there
is no clipping ie. no distortion or just follow John Ackermann's suggestion.

UHF - have not tried anything yet. TBD

HF - With the alsamixer settings below (visually they produce the
"lowest splatter" per an IC-7300 panscope and using Spectrum Lab 2
with the IC-7300 internal audio subsystem via USB. Rig coax is
grounded, RF gain at 20% with 20dB of attenuation:

1. Fldigi drives the IC-7000 up to full power (if set) but transmits a
very dirty sig at any power above 5%.

Comment: The sig can be copied by others, but the ALC bar is reading 60%.
Not making any friends in the PSK world. These are ALC symptoms.
Reducing either the PCM level or LO Driver Gain results in very much
increased noise and a feedback like whistle at a different freq.
Increasing the two settings results in more splatter and harmonics.

2. WSJT-x receives just fine but DRAWS produces only an extremely low
transmit audio level according to the IC-7000 and signal being
received on other transceivers. Only testing with FT8 no other JT modes
tested. TBD:
wspr.

Comment: In transmit there is no Power Out deflection on the IC-7000 -
even if I adjust the PCM and IO Driver levels to the max, together or
separate.
So the PCM/LO Driver Gain level settings that "work" in fldigi, don't
work in wsjt-x. I even went back to check that invoking wsjt-x did not
somehow tweak the alsamixer settings. they remained the same.

Key Question: Why is DRAWS overdriving in fldigi, and then not putting
out enough audio level to drive the IC-7000 to set power level in
wjst-x FT8 mode with alsamixer settings remaining the same between apps?
I don't have an answer but your description is a good data point.

Here are my current alsamixer settings:

PCM L:[-21.50dB], R:[-21.50dB

ADC Level L:[-2.00dB], R:[-2.00dB]

LO Driver Gain L:[6.00dB], R:[6.00dB]

IN1 L:[10kOhm], R:[10kOhm]

IN2 L:[Off], R:[Off]
So PCM set that low is very suspicious. It means you are not using many
bits of the CODEC. I would play with returning PCM at least close to zero &
dropping LO Driver Gain down.

I am stuck until I can figure out how to coerce wsjt-x into
transmitting at set power with the same audio input levels to the rig as
provided in fldigi.
At this point I don't even care if the overdrive issue isn't solved. I
have decided to put the FT-817 aside because other are
working/reporting on it. I am only testing with the Beta 5 provided
software and the IC-7000 until I get these critical pieces working
reliably because that will be my main radio for this DRAWS kit.

Now need to go pay attention to other stuff (like family and the local
zoo of 4-legged furries we keep here on the farm).
Yep. I understand.

Thanks for thinking this through with me.
Thanks for taking such a methodical approach.

Re: Cant turn off direwolf and ax25 #configuration #management #draws #direwolf #ax25

Bob Orrett <boborrett@...>
 

Finally after many frustrating  days, wsjtx and js8call are working with the draws hat. It was my fault and probably a rookie mistake but I will explain in case others are making the same mistake.  It is in Basil's script. I read the script each time that I loaded a new image but I misinterpreted  how to use it. 
There is a line that says, "if you want direwolf functionality, do this". Well , I didnt want direwolf so I didn't do the script below. A mistake! When I finally decided to run that script everything worked. I was always wondering  why I was never asked for a password (nwcompass). 
But even then it took many tries before i finally noticed that between "app" and "config" there is an underscore "_" not a dash"-". I have never seen and underscore in a command before and the print is very small. I realize now that i should get my email with the raspberry pi so that i can cut and paste instead of read and type. Linux doesn't help you when you make a typing error. Just says that the command does not exist. That make me think there is something wrong with the program, not my typing. 
I am a retired teacher and one thing i learned is that giving foolproof instructions is very difficult. There are often assumptions made by the reader and the writer that can result is complete misunderstandings. Adding the reason for a given command is a big help. Don't worry about insulting the reader, give hints and examples. Explain what the response to a given command should be.
Well, i feels good to be over this hurdle, on to the next.

As another FYI you do NEED AX.25 for Winlink on the RPi, paclink-unix &

Re: Cant turn off direwolf and ax25 #configuration #management #draws #direwolf #ax25

 

That is correct.  

Direwolf can run independently of the AX.25 stack.  And programs that can talk directly using agwpe or kiss over the network work just fine (e.g. YAAC, Xastir).  Basil has done a lot of work to have a stable, reproducible AX.25 stack available for a variety of programs that need it, including an RMS, BBS, and various other applications (commonly used in EMCOMM).  While running the AX.25 application stack, these (mostly APRS) applications can also run through the same direwolf instance, using the same radios, over agwpe or networked KISS.

Direwolf by itself is also a capable digipeater and igate, though we tend to use it more often as a modem and let other programs handle the higher level protocols.

Re: Status: IC-7000 Audio Levels for V/UHF and HF modes #draws #ic7000 #hfmodes

Jack Spitznagel
 

Basil, John

I setup Beta 6 today. The install was painless, it may be my growing comfort
with the setup, but it ran smoothly. Testing was where thing fell apart.
Unfortunately I still struggling to get the both the direwolf and fldigi
drives level adjusted with the IC-7000.

It appears that the poster who suggested a 100k ohm (variable) resistor in
the audio line from the DRAWS to the transceiver may be correct.

I will upload a text file of my observations while running the "Ackerman"
no-test-equipment deviation method" style adjustments and using the
"measure_deviate.sh" script if desired... but this should cover almost
everything:

In short:
1. Audio drive was too high for the IC-7000 as it was defaulted by
AX25/direwolf setup.
2. Used the "setalsa-udrc-alinco.sh" script to set the audio levels to a
level that "worked"
NOTE: I tried all of the scripts you included. The Alinco" levels produced a
signal my HT and APRS gateway could decode - it sounded hot though.
3. While "measure_deviate.sh" was activated, reduced PCM all the way, then
increased it until I heard no increase in volume of the received signal.
That point occurred at about -6.00 dB - but ALC on the rig was still very
high. LO Driver Gain level was already at -6.00 dB.
4. Re-enabled the AX.25/direwolf stuff and observed that these levels still
resulted in decodable APRS [packets).
5. Killed AX.25, went to fldigi and SSB to see how the audio output was
driving the 7000. ALC was still very high.
6. Increasing PCM increases distortion sound and visual splatter on Spectrum
Lab.
7. Backing PCM to -21.00dB saw the ALC start to drop - but would not drop
below 50% point.
8. Once PCM drops below about -25.00dB, the ALC starts to pump and the
signal gets dirty sounding with a feedback-like harmonic beginning to be
heard with loud hiss and crackling noises.

These "best outcome" alsamixer levels are still not optimal by any
descriptions I have read. I don't challenge that.
PCM L:[-21.00dB], R:[-21.00dB]
ADC Level L:[-5.00dB], R:[-5.00dB]
LO Driver Gain L:[-6.00dB], R:[-6.00dB]
IN1 L:[10kOhm], R:[10kOhm]
IN1 L:[Off], R:[Off]

Conclusion - AFAICT, clean audio IS being produced at higher PCM and LO
Driver Gain levels - but the signal is at too high a level for the IC-7000.

NOTE: I seem to remember I had to use the dropping resistor setting in the
SignaLink with this radio. So that leads me to the conclusion that a
variable resistor/ resistance network will be needed to get clean audio at a
level that the IC-7000 (and apparently some other radios) seems to like.

Next time I have the unit apart, I will try to find a good test point to
measure the actual amplitude of the signal with a handheld digital
oscilloscope I have.

Thanks for your patience with my ramble.

Read this:
https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/DRAWS_CONFIG.md

The step where you run

app_config.sh core

setups up your image & starts direwolf from systemd.
If you read to the bottom of the document you will learn the proper way
to stop & disable direwolf and the ax.25 stack.

Using killall leaves the ax.25 stack compromised and will give
unpredictable results later on.

Hi Jack,

As it was in Beta 5, having Basil’s scripts scattered between ~/bin,
~/n7nix/bin, and ~/n7nix/debug made doing the set up and testing a bit
of a challenge. Jumping around the different pieces of the directory
tree made for some interesting “not found” errors.
In the beta6 image after you have run the app_config.sh core script most of the commonly used scripts are copied to the local bin, ~/bin and that will be in your PATH if you are logged in as user pi. So you only need to type the name of the script. If you are required to be root then
just:
cd /home/pi/bin
./<name_of_the_script>

/Basil


Good work guys! We really appreciate what you are doing.

This will leave the AX.25 stack in a weird state, please use Basil's
scripts to start and stop AX.25 and it will start/stop direwolf.
