Updates, lots of question for beta 13!

Art - KC7SDA
 

Ok, so I FINALLY got some time to sit and go over beta 13, and man a lot has changed! I'm going to have to do a lot of work fixing my update/install scripts to go 'inline' with what is currently out!

I do have a few notes and questions that I'd like to pass along:

for the draws manager:
- please change the default so that it will ONLY listen to local host. its a huge security deal and most people are treating this as a mostly 'turnkey' application, a page in the manager can be made to tell people how to change it so the network can see it
- for the radio presets: where are those stored and how can we add our own? a great feature would be to save our settings (external file maybe?) and import them into the manager (any updates that reset the manager can be simply fixed with an export done previously)

will there be an included pdf with future images that outlines configurations for new installs? I'm finding the information quite varied and spread out along with some outdated or incorrect posts that come up in the search, a more centralized 'authority' document would be nice to have distributed. also including common directories (ie the source folder, icon folders, common scripts and setup procedures would be very handy to have).

lastly: is there a way to find the PTP voltage input for any given radio if its not listed in the manual? I have an ic-706mii now and it doesn't list the ptp input (I just looked up my ic-718 and it doesn't say it either)... what about the voltage listed for the acc sockets on both rigs (icom lists it as the modulator input)? they say 100mv rms which would come out to 141.4 mv when you convert it.

Greetings. I got the ct-62 yeasu level converter suggested by Jack. Now everything seems to be working fine on fldigi and wsjt-x using rpi, draws hat and ft 817. Thanks again for the assistance. Rick. Ka4ohm

That's the beauty of this thing.  If there is a problem, treat it like an appliance and re-flash.

Once you have everything dialed in, make a backup of your SD card and you can always return to that point.  That's another subject for a good future video.

  • iptables <-- Not needed unless you know you need it.
  • RPi login password <-- Check
  • RPi host name <-- Check
  • mail host name <-- If its covered in the start up script, then I've got it, if not it will be covered when it becomes needed.
  • time zone <-- Check
  • current time via chrony <-- Check
  • AX.25 <-- video in the works
  • direwolf <-- video in the works
  • system <-- What would you like to know?
In the playlist, you'll find a video on a few ways to make the SD card, another video with how to configure WiFi, login over your network and setup graphical remote control and login using that.  Another video goes over configuring WSJT-X and making some contacts on FT8 (which you can then extrapolate how to make contacts on the other WSJT-X modes).

Once my radio comes back from the shop, I'll start in on a video of FLRIG, FLDIGI and FLAMP usage in a digital net.

Then I'll be working on APRS, direwolf, ax.25, winlink and anything else I can think of or is suggested.

Hope that helps!

No DRAWS Video... but some DRAWS content

Steve McGrane <temporarilyoffline@...>
 

I let the smoke out of my radio that I've been using for the DRAWS videos and I don't have a backup right now that works with DRAWS.

In the meantime I've got some parts in for testing when the radio comes back from the shop and a quick look at the competition: (SignaLink)


Thanks for watching!

UDRC-II Beta 13 two radios

 

Greetings All,

I have my UDRC-II on a Pi 3 b+. I just downloaded and installed Beta 13. I utilized the Getting Started and Test & Verification pages to set it up. Setup went without any difficulty with ax25 setup and direwolf complete. I have two radios connection. An Id880-h on the 6pin and a Kenwood TM-g707 on the 15 pin connector. I have removed pin 5 line from the 6 pin cable. I have the id880-h on our local packet frequency and the TM-g707 on our local APRS frequency.  

When I utilize the test scripts in n7nix/debug to transmit tx occurs on the proper radio for the script being run. Yet when I receive something on the packet frequency on the ID880-h is shows up as being received by both udrc ports. See below:

udr1: fm W4LCO-10 to USERS ctl UI^ pid=F0(Text) len 38 11:54:39

YOUR CALL SIGN RMS Lite Packet Server

udr0: fm W4LCO-10 to USERS ctl UI^ pid=F0(Text) len 38 11:54:39

YOUR CALL SIGN RMS Lite Packet Server


I have verified different frequencies so it is not actually being received twice. I had this same issue on beta 11 as well. I have been through all the configurations I can think of on Beta 11. So I decided to start fresh with beta 13 and do nothing but the config steps in getting and Test & Verification pages.

I would love to be able to monitor both the local packet and local aprs traffic but cannot seem to properly configure my station.  
Any help would be appreciated.

Rich, KR4PI
