William,

 

Please let us know your experiences using the IC-7000 with the software you are trying to run. I need to compare my outcomes with other 7000 owners. I will be loading Beta 7 this evening to give it a try.

quick point I started an audio settings thread for people to add their configurations to for comparison between different rigs and other audio notes.

currently testing the beta, so far so good, everything is working great!

semi random question: does this beta work with the original udrc 2? I think I really really need to update it to the newest drivers and software.

I have tested the images with a UDRC II. Change /boot/config.txt
from: dtoverlay=draws
to: dtoverlay=udrc

Note *for a UDRC II* that the left & right connectors are swapped from a
DRAWS HAT ie. right connector(HD 15) is chan 0 & uses gpio 12 for PTT,
left connector (mDin6) is chan 1 & uses gpio 23

By the way, I wrote a patch for direwolf 1.5-1.6 to give the choice of
channel for sending calibration test signal (option -x).
This may be useful for the default is only on channel 0 that is right
connector (HD15) on UDRC II which is not very convenient when you
prefere to use Din6 wiring for the radio set. With DRAW hat you may also
choose to send calibration signal for level adjustment either on channel
0 or channel 1.

Basil, if interested by this patch I wrote a Direwolf issue here :
https://github.com/wb2osz/direwolf/issues/184
Patch can be downloaded from file :

awesome! after most of the bugs get worked out I'll do the same thing with my udrc and update everyone up here to the new image =)
