I will keep struggling with the software at a later stage.

It is all very muddy, as there is not a simple how to list that I can find.

The use of external interfacing is used by a lot of people trying to explain theur setups.

I just want to get the Draws /Pi up and running non remotely at first.

Without a basic how to, I feel a lot of hams like me will find it tedious etc, to get up and running.

It genuinely is quite confusing sorry to say.

I love the concept however, so am prepared to learn.

cheers guys.

As I do not need presently that Draws-manager I will not take your time and will wait for a fresh install when I get the opportunity or need to do so. Everything else is doing well presently.

Thanks both for your help.


Re: PRECIPITOUS EDUCATIONAL ARC

Basil Gunn
 

I just burned and booted an nwdr15.img and draws-manager ran and worked
in both remote & local browser without doing anything further.

I then:

cd
cd n7nix
git pull
cd config
./bin_refresh.sh

sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

and after a reboot draws-manager again ran fine.

If you did something other than the above or attempted to install
draws-manager when it is already installed then that possibly could be
your problem.

draws-manager is installed & running by default on the nwdr15 image.
Verify draws-manager running like this:

systemctl status draws-manager.service

Run like this on a remote computer:

<ip-address-of-pi>:8080

or on a local RPi

localhost:8080

What does this return:

Paul,

If you didn't change anything having to do with gpsd and it started working later, this usually indicates that the gps wasn't locked before:

1. The gps loses ephemeris data if the board is powered down.
2. The gps can take a considerable amount of time to obtain lock unless it has ephemeris data, so the first time you apply power you may need to wait a considerable amount of time for lock (15+ minutes would not be unusual) with the antenna placed with a clear view of the sky.
-- patience --
3. If the backup battery is installed on the DRAWS™ board, it will keep the last locked ephemeris data for up to 40 days (cumulative over multiple power cycles, then must be replaced). The GPS will lock quite quickly with the ephemeris data.
4. It is recommended that once you setup the DRAWS™ GPS, to leave it powered continuously to maintain lock.  The Pi and HAT do not draw much power.  If desired to shut down your station, just turn off the radio and leave the Pi and HAT running.
-- Leave it running --

Re: nixtracker msg ack?

 

For those of us with impaired vision, having colors (background, foreground, and state) user configurable would be a  nice enhancement.

Your color change suggestion would be useful, for me anyway. I notice the sent message is in red font in the msg panel. Maybe change it to black after an ack? But again, retries are easy enough to look for ... So it is good for me as is. I just needed a handle on what to look for.

I am not familiar with the Xastir change in background color. I’m new to most of this.

Re: nixtracker msg ack?

Basil Gunn
 

Thanks Basil, that answers my question. I was uncertain how to verify
on the tracker side that the ack was received by the tracker. Watching
the retries is perfectly fine, I just wanted to make sure, I wasn’t
sure what to expect in the message window.
For nixtracker 'APRS messaging' I try to model the behavior of Xastir
and make sure that it works with both Xastir & YAAC.

Messaging functionality needs some work so I appreciate you using this
interface and I am open to your suggestions.
