Re: Packet / Email Routing

Basil Gunn
 

How do I expand the command below to send to CALL-10 via my local
digipeater through a second digitpeater?
Read this:
https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/plu/PACLINK-UNIX_INSTALL.md#run-wl2kax25

wl2kax25 -c <some_RMS_Gateway_callsign> <some_digipeater>

I'll update the paclink-unix man page

wl2kax25 -c CALL-10

In "packet" land, the command is : wl2kax25 -c DIGI-1 DIGI-2 CALL-10
It's been in this order for about 15 years. What "packet" land are you
talking about?
wl2kax25 -c <some_RMS_Gateway_callsign> <some_digipeater>

I also need to get the mheard list from DIGI-1 to find the DIGI-2 value
and then ping DIGI-2 via DIGI-1 to confirm it can hear CALL-10.
Give me a more detailed example. Can't tell if you are using a node or
using 2 digi hops.

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: DRAWS™ Boards Shipping #draws

Hi, Bryan. The pin toward the inward position on the board wasn’t soldered. 


Re: need up to date setup guide to use the draws audio with Fldigi and others.

Basil Gunn
 

Thanks Basil for your help. My first issue was I needed to shut down
ax25 and I have FLDIGi, WSJTX and JS8CALL running using FLRIG .Now I
need to figure out how to configure and use DIREWolf. Thanks again,
Direwolf comes configured on the NWDR image. ax25-start & ax25-stop
start/stops both ax25 & direwolf. If you feel you have to edit the
direwolf config I would like to know why.

ax25-status & ax25-status -d should give you a good indication that
ax25 & direwolf processes are running OK.

I think your next step is to figure out the alsa control values required
to set deviation properly on which ever radio you are using for packet.


Where can i find some correct setting for the the FT 817and fldigi.

```
* PTT
* Configuration->Rig->GPIO
* For left mDin6 connector
* Select BCM 12, check box =1
* For right mDin6 connector
* Select BCM 23, check box =1

##### JS8CALL

* Soundcard device
* File->Settings-Audio->Modulation Sound Card
```
Input: plughw:CARD=udrc,DEV=0
Output: plughw:CARD=udrc,DEV=0
```
* PTT
* The following allows JS8Call to execute an external script for controlling a rig's PTT:
* File->Settings->Radio->Rig Options->Advanced
```
/home/pi/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh
```
* Script defaults to using left connector, to use right connector
```
/home/pi/bin/ptt_ctrl.sh -r

Re: DRAWS™ Boards Shipping #draws

 

Yes cases are still on backorder.

Bob,

Which Pin was not soldered? We found one board with that defect. The boards are soldered in an automated machine so I do not understand how that can happen. I have notified the assembly house.

Bryan K7UDR


Re: DRAWS™ Boards Shipping #draws

Bob - W6AKA
 

FWIW, my DRAWS arrived today with only one of the two pins on the power input soldered to the board. I went ahead and soldered it down myself, but folks may want to give the board a close look for that sort of thing on arrival.

I would change permissions on the rmsgw/stat directory:

sudo su
cd /usr/local/etc/rmsgw
chown -R rmsgw:rmsgw stat

However I don't think that is your problem.
I have a feeling that you need to authorize or re-authorize your gateway
with Steve Waterman.

Read everything at this link:
https://winlink.org/content/join_gateway_sysop_team_sysop_guidelines

Everything else from your console output looks fine.
