N1MM network mode, Field Day and TCP/IP over AX.25

Eric Grumling
 

Our club is looking at different options for this year's Field Day since we have no intention of collecting at our usual 3A campsite. Most of us will probably be operating from home using our own callsigns, but there's some discussion of using N1MM's network mode and forming a multi-user multi-station group using the club call. I'm pretty well versed in networking N1MM on a LAN, and can probably get a VPN set up (to simplify setup for non-network savvy members) for everyone to use. However it might be interesting to see what might be possible using all radio instead of Internet and VPN tunnels. The club repeater sites are connected via a 3GHz WAN that could also be utilized if members have direct LOS with the repeater sites (not many do). 

With that in mind, what is the possibility of running 9600 baud TCP/IP using a Raspberry Pi and UDRC/soundcard modem? That way we could keep things all radio and maybe get some infrastructure built for longer term projects. I'll have to see how much network traffic is generated by N1MM of course, but the idea would be similar to a Cradlepoint style cellular modem, where the logging PC could join a WiFi hotspot or Ethernet port on the Pi, which would then act like a router. Would JNOS or Direwolf do this? Ideally I'd build a standard image for the club, and probably build a few stations too. Club members who want to join the network would need to supply a 70 CM radio with 9600 baud input and we'd probably have to set nodes at the repeater sites.

Good idea or waste of time?


Functional End-User Operation Directions

Ed Bloom, KD9FRQ
 

I am looking for some more formalized End-User Directions to keep on the thumb drive, and print for the Go Bag/Box.

What I am looking for is how to swap ports from 0 to 1 should the port 0 fail on the hat (as a precaution) and how to make the needed baseline setting changes to Xastir runs off of Port 1 as default and let the Pac-Link side run off of Port 0.

As it stands now, Xastir sees the Port 0 and I need to move it.


Re: #DRAWS oddity, GPS and ALSA headaches #draws

Jack Spitznagel
 

Hi Basil,

Well, I finally got a chance to do a "multiswap" to see what hardware is
working and what is not with this DRAWS system.

Previously determined that the GPS antenna we have discussed was bad by
swapping on to a good DRAWS/Pi unit that was working fine with another
antenna. Ordered a replacement which arrived last week.

Finally got some time to reconfigure so... before putting the new GPS
antenna on the DRAWS unit that had the antenna failure, I tested both DRAWS
boards with a good Pi3B+ and the remaining good GPS antenna that I have. I
was worried because there had been some heating that took place when the GPS
antenna failed.

The DRAWS board that had the antenna go bad apparently also has a bad GPS
chip:

-When I was testing it a week ago or so with the good antenna from my GO
kit, it "seemed OK", but was very sluggish getting a fix and there seemed to
be a lot of position jitter when it did acquire some satellites. ALSA
indicated the UDRC BCM chip was working. The GPS chip seemed to get a bit
warm, but not alarmingly.

-Today's testing, the DRAWS board in question did not get a fix and no
matter how long after starting the units, no satellites were acquired. ALSA
did appear to work. GPSMON show 4 satellites in the list, but consistently
only shows 00.0000 for coordinates no matter how long I left it.

With the same antenna and same Pi3B+ with the other DRAWS board mounted, the
full GPSMON display comes up immediately and all systems check out. Xastir
runs flawlessly.

I guess this moves to a Brian question... Is the DRAWS board repairable or
swappable for a fee? I most likely am past any reasonable warranty time and
I need this unit for my go kit.

73 and Thanks!

Hi Jack,

It also turns out that the original GPS/LNA antenna had gone bad along
with the Pi3B+. It was working before the RPi started into the
overheating problem. So what ever started the heating problem took out
the ability to connect to the DRAWS hat and apparently the GPS antenna...

I tried the GPS antenna from the other DRAWS unit I have in my GO box
and it came right up. Just ordered another from you.
I found these also work:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LXRQY9A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_tit

Note: The Pi4 B+ really needs a fan... runs 55 to 60C without, 35-37C
with.
Had a 12V microfan sitting in the junk box, wired it in, and the Pi
stays cool now.
Yes I agree. Pi4's run cool enough when laying naked on my bench but as soon
as you put them into any kind of enclosure they heat up.

I have a case on back order. Does it have a place for a fan mount?
Don't know. Bryan or John need to answer that.

how to send a message!!
btest.sh script defaults to sending a message

'btest.sh -p' sends a location beacon

$ ./btest.sh -h
*** Running as user: pi ***
Usage: btest.sh [-P <port>][-s <num>][-p][-m][-v][-h]
-P <portname> | --portname <portname> eg. udr0

-p | --position send a position beacon
-m | --message send a message beacon (default)
-g | --gps verify gps is working
-v | --verbose display verbose messages
-h | --help display this message

The btest.sh script prints out the beacon command it executes:

$ ./btest.sh

Re: #aprs #aprs

It appears everything is working but I do not know enough to
understand why no aprs.fi location?
Ways to send a position beacon on the image you are using:

cd
cd n7nix/debug
./beacmin.sh
or
./btest.sh -p
or
YAAC is installed, configure YAAC
or
Xastir is installed, configure Xastir
or
nixtracker is installed, configure nixtracker
or
configure direwolf to beacon

YAAC, Xastir, nixtracker & direwolf can be configured to beacon an APRS
position at some interval. You could also make a cron entry & use
either beacmin.sh or btest.sh

Example cron entry to use beacmin.sh to beacon on the 1/2 hour.

*/30 * * * * /bin/bash /home/pi/n7nix/debug/beacmin.sh >> /home/pi/tmp/beacmin.log 2>&1


Re: #aprs #aprs

 

You are getting close.  You are transmitting and an IGate station is sending your packets to the APRS-IS servers.

Let's look at your most recent transmission.  After the part with addresses we find:

:KO4BCZ   :11 16:46:28 EDT KO4BCZ mesg_beacon test from host asawizard on port udr0 Seq: 1<0x09><0xe7>
 

The first character of the information part is ":" meaning "message."   In APRS, the term "message" has a very special meaning. You can think of it like a mobile phone text message.  Suppose you sent a text message to the number for a phone that has never been powered on.  The telephone network would not know how to forward the message.

It is the same situation here.  The APRS-IS servers will try to forward this message to IGate stations near the last known location of  "KO4BCZ".   There is no known location for that station.   The error message "KO4BCZ was not found in the location database." is exactly what you would expect in this case.

You can only send an APRS "message" to a station if the APRS-IS servers have recent information about where it is.


"Successful IGate Operation," found here  https://github.com/wb2osz/direwolf/tree/dev/doc , briefly describes how APRS messaging works.

If you want to advertise your location, use a "Position Report."    Look in your direwolf.conf file and use an existing PBEACON example as a starting point.


Re: #aprs #aprs

Have you sent a position packet yet? Just because you transmitted an APRS text message doesn't provide anyone with your station position.

Re: Backups and Updates

john.chabalko@...
 

Thanks Basil, what i was trying to use is provided by mDNS - which seems to work after initial setup but not during initial boot.
  • I image the SD card with a fresh DRAWs image
  • copy wpa_supplicant.conf to /Volume/boot/
  • touch /Volume/boot/ssh
  • Insert card into headless raspberry pi
  • wait a minute or 2
  • from my workstation: ssh pi@... (as i don't know the IP address yet and i think the default hostname used to be draws) which works via mdns
  • The default password listed in the setup doc has changed since the last time i installed it so i figured the default hostname may have also, but didn't see it listed.

Last night i tried to do that with a couple of images and then gave up and plugged it into a TV where the IP address was displayed on the screen. Makes me think i missed something. Once i had the IP i was able to connect fine remotely and complete the setup after i connected it back to my radio.

I thought this worked before but it's been a while since i've set up DRAWs. It does work correctly on a pi-star setup.

I was going to do it via a wired connection and couldn't find my long ethernet cable - which i of course found right after i got it sorted out ;)

Thank you.

During my WFH lunch hour, I was able to successfully use that method and copy the SD card that was used to boot the Pi.

I swapped the cards and the Pi booted as expected.

The answer to this question depends on which operating system you are
using on the machine with the USB device, Linux/MAC/Windows.

If you google this topic you will get a lot of responses for things to
try and some of them might even work. I make a LOT of images using my
Linux workstation so my notes reflect that. I have a number of friends
that use a MAC and we have found a solution when using that OS as well.
For Windows there is a lengthy thread on the RaspberryPi-4-HamRadio
groups.io group that might be helpful. I can't really comment on the
Windows solution since I never use it.

Please read a file that I've recently added to our github repo with some
notes so that you can see what I recommend.

Thanks Basil, i followed your advice last night and went ahead with a
fresh rebuild - everything went fine and it also appears to have

too. That dist-upgrade take a long time on a raspberry pi though ;)
Yes. I need to make a new image that updates all the packages.

I started it kind of late and just let it run into the night.

The last time i did was during the time that the audio drivers were
still being incorporated into the kernel - which i think was the root
of my problem last year.

So going forward is it recommended to manage the linux os updates as i
would on any other machine - updating OS packages periodically and
applying OS patches regularly?
Sure. This works fine as the DRAWS/UDRC driver is now part of mainline Linux

There are a couple of wonky things in the setup instructions (
https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki/DRAWS%3A-Getting-Started
) i noticed

* When you run ./app_config.sh core if you change the hostname of the
rpi (which is one of the early steps) it throws a number of errors
later on related to the previous (still current?) hostname of the
device.
To be expected until you do a reboot.

* I was able to use a wpa_supplicant.conf and to enable ssh on the sd
card after imaging it but i couldn't connect to the device via the
"draws.local" hostname after boot.
ssh pi@<ip_address_of_pi>
Works from first boot with an Ethernet cable

If you want to use a machine host name then:
* Add an entry to /etc/hosts
ie.
<ip_address_of_pi> hactar hactar.localnet

* Since the ip address comes from a DHCP server this address will last
until you have a power failure or reboot your router.
* To change you RPi to have a fixed ip address on your Ethernet device only.
* look at your router config to see where the DHCP range starts.
* Run fixed_ip.sh script to change ip address of your RPi.

Usage: fixed_ip.sh [-l][-s][-w][-y][-d][-h] last_ip_octet or complete ip address
Default to setting a static ip address
-y --dhcp set Ethernet device to use DHCP
-l --link show all devices that have link
-s --show show all devices with ip4 addresses
-w --wifi set wifi address
-d --debug set debug mode, will not change any files
-h display this message

I don't see an updated hostname in the setup doc
??
run hostname from a console prompt.

and that's what it used to be called from my notes. I
ended up reimaging the card and connecting the rpi to my TV where i
found that it was up and running on the network so i just connected to
it directly by IP. I might try to play around with this again and see
what it's doing. I tend to set up and run these things headless so
that first time of connecting can be dicey.
To find ip address of a headless RPi
* Look in the dhcp table of your router
* Run the following command from another (Linux) machine.
- This will port knock the SSH port number on your subnet.
- requires the root ip address of your subnet.

nmap -p 22 --open -sV <first_3_octets_of_subnet>.* -Pn
ie.
nmap -p 22 --open -sV 10.0.42.* -Pn

Thanks for your help - here's the current state of my OS and applications, and everything's working great with radio control and audio routing.

I'm struggling with the TX audio settings in JS8Call. When i use the recommended settings based on the 0.4V Peak to Peak value for my ICOM 706, I don't seem to output any power. When I adjust the values up, I get power output but no replies to my CQ's or replies to other stations I can hear.

I would like to do some testing in WSJT-X Ver 2.1.2 but don't see a way PTT with the script file.  

2 Questions: 
Can you recommend TX Audio setting for my ICOM706MkIIG 
Do you know if WSJT-X supports Advanced PTT settings for the script file for keying?

Couldnt find advanced PTT setting in WSJT-X 

which ptt_ctrl.sh showed  /home/pi/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh
So I set that path in JS8Call and it is now keying the radio.
Just now getting into the TX audio adjustments but looks like I can TX using the Test PTT button in JS8Call setup.
Ill follow up once I can confirm proper operation
Thanks again for your help.

Using full path seems to work fine for script /home/pi/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh
%1 and js8call

Have you used wstx?
What did you use for PTT control when using wstx and ICOM 706MKIIg?
