DRAWS 857d trouble #draws #fldigi #wsjtx #ft857


Basil Gunn
 

There seems to be conflicting information on the use of pin 6 for some
Yaesu radios.
https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/message/3809

My personal experience trying to get a Yaesu FT-817 radio to work I had
to remove SQL pin 6 from the mDin6 cable.

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/docs/RADIO_APP_NOTES.md

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/docs/RADIO_HW_NOTES.md#yaesu-ft817--ft-817nd

Also other sound cards like the DINAH have a jumper to disconnect
SQL/COS from the radio when using digital modes.

Okay, I have been lurking for awhile. I am curious why folks are disabling
pin #6 on this yaesu series. ( FT-8XX) I have an 897D. And will be

disaster deployment.

Adam,

Thanks for the console output.
Just a couple of things.

Running the initcfg.sh script twice configures your system for packet.
Packet uses direwolf which "owns" the codec device. To get HF programs
FLdigi, WSJT-X & JS8Call running they will have to "own" the codec
device.

To verify that direwolf is in fact in control of the DRAWS codec run:

ax25-status

if you see:

Status for direwolf.service: RUNNING and ENABLED

then you need to stop the direwolf service by running

ax25-stop

Now confirm that direwolf is stopped by running 'ax25-status' again.
At this point you should be able to successfully run FLdigi, WSJT-X or JS8Call.

Another point that has no affect on what you are doing, just an
observation. You can take the hold off the Linux kernel on your system
as the current kernel has all the fixes that Anna supplied a while back.

apt-mark unhold $(apt-mark showhold)

https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/n7nix/blob/master/docs/DRAWS_CONFIG.md#to-unhold-all-held-packages

Now do:
sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

You should now be running the most current Linux kernel: 5.10.63

One further point. To debug HF programs,  FLdigi, WSJT-X or JS8Call,
start them from a console rather than a desktop icon in order to view
any output as they start up.

Let me know how you make out.

Getting a draws running again with an FT-857D on a 3b+. I used the nwdr19. I have run the init config a couple times, ran the alsa-setft817.sh, broke pin #6. 
My main problem is no receive audio coming in on FLdigi and WSJTX. Just blank, black waterfalls. For some reason the waterfall is active on js8call. I have plughw;CARD=udrc,DEV=0 for in and out with left channel seleted in js8call but no option for channel in the other two programs.
I also cannot transmit on any program but I wanted to focus on the receive first.
