locked Waterfall only in Wide Graph #Waterfall

Ed
 

Hello Group,
Pretty sure I know the answer, but you never know. 
I had to use one of my monitors for Sats(which is good).  So trying to save screen space. Can the Waterfall only be shown in the Wide Graph?  I know you can check "Controls" to not show the menu adjustments.  Would basically like to see only the Waterfall???

Thanks,  Ed  WA6WGS

Dave's chasing a red herring, IMHO, and he doesn't listen, and doesn't respond. His computer appears to have a different underlying problem, possibly infested with malware that's eating all his CPU or something else.

I give up.

I'm still wrapping my head around all of the variants of Linux sound, and this doesn't really help with your problem, but I've got a:

https://tapr.org/product/wspr/ ($32 plus the Pi, power supply, antenna)

Which puts out about 200 mW using direct synthesis (bit-banging a GPIO pin as an NTP-disciplined-oscillator?) and is heard all over the hemisphere from the Turks & Caicos as VP5WS on 40M WSPR, though usually only at night.

I know you are looking for better understanding of Linux sound, but if what you really wanted was a WSPR beacon, the above might be a simpler solution.

I am trying to operate WSJTX with SDRAngel and a LimeSDR as the transciever. At this time I intended to run unattended as a WSPR beacon. The host system is a Pi4b with PU2SPY's PiSDR Build 4.2 complemented with my re-installation of pulseaudio and addition of ARM 32 bit WSJTX 2.4.0.

- Audio stream out of WSJTX is silent and no audio or silent audio is processed as a blank waterfall in receive.
- All sensible stream devices (there are 17 to chose from including pulse, default, and on-board sound cards) behave the same - the stream gets registered but audio is silent. Additional pulseaudio streams created as virtual also appear listed in all apps, but still they don't convey sound in or out of WSJTX
- In all cases invoking the selected streams, the following error appears in the parent terminal:

ALSA lib pcm_usb_stream.c:508:(_snd_pcm_usb_stream_open) Unknown field hint
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1108:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm_dsnoop.c:575:(snd_pcm_dsnoop_open) The dsnoop plugin supports only capture stream

- When pulse is selected, the pavucontrol gui shows the WSJTX streams in both input and output, but the level indicator bars show nothing generated by WSJTX transmit and streams with sound don't reach the waterfall.
- The initial tests were in WSJTX 2.3.1 and upgrading to 2.4.0 changed nothing.
- I have injected audio into pulseaudio using paplay, to then routed it successfully to SDRAngel, the analog sound cards, and it appears in pavucontrol normally as a level, but failed to get it into WSJTX. This suggests that pulseaudio is piping streams to other connections.

I am a newbie in OS audio resources, however I have successfully connected WSJTX and SDRAngel with pulseaudio on several Ubuntu distros successfully - so not a total newbie. This means that my expectations seem reasonable. I succeeded by putting outputs to default devices or virtual sinks, and setting inputs to stream "monitors", but have not made it through the WSJTX sound I/O to the rest of the system on a Pi.

Please help. A direct solution to my problem sure would help get the beacon on the air, but resources to learn how to troubleshoot these sound servers could help lots of computerized hams now and in the future. Software generated messages piped directly to SDRs are the future of most communications. How does one un-blackbox ALSA and pulseaudio and proceed logically?

In the WSJT-X Rig settings select USB instead of Data/Pkt.

I assume you have Data/Pkt selected?

If you already have USB selected select None and set it yourself.  That would be a bug in hamlib that I'd need to fix.

But when I go to Transmit something is telling the radio to go into PKT mode.

Is this a WSJT-X thing doing it or something with the Yaesu?

Hi Joe,

if you have working CAT control then WSJT-X can select the mode used on your rig. The options group "Settings->Radio->Mode" determines which mode is set. Normally with rigs that have special DATA modes for AFSK operation should select "Data/Pkt" and configure the rig and audio connections appropriately.

Hello again Joe....You have my most sincere apologies.  I have been setting up various configurations within v2.4.0 and trying to remember to use them, but I often just click on Mode and change to some new mode.  I will try to remember not to do that in the future.

As I said in my previous post, "A simple, we are working on it" would have caused me to not comment further.  I will await further developments.

Thank you for your quick replies.....

We're not being dismissive, but some patience will be required on your part.

Evidently you are switching between modes using the Mode menu. It's usually much better to set up a Configuration for each type of operation that you do, and then switch among these Configurations to switch modes.

More when we have the time to get to it...

locked Re: Unattended operation #WSPR

Pietro Molina
 

Thanks to all. I know that in Italy, at "packet era", many people let the radio running unmanned, and I can't find anything that allow it, but nothing that forbits it...
So, in my plan there is a WSPR station, an I wonder if (here) I can let it on when I'm not in.
The idea is 7/24 with automatic analysis of the reports and then an alarm for distances or countries that assume sporadic E presence.
Mainly my interest is 2 or 6 m, but some friends like to have in in 10m or lower (I think that receiving beacon is enough)
European experiences are welcome, too.

Hi again Jim, glad to hear that the GM8ARV information helped you to set up Meinberg on the laptop.

Re: your problem on the Win8.1 PC, it might be worth running the Revo Uninstaller utility app and seeing if that will remove all traces of your existing Meinberg installation on the Win8.1 machine so that you can then start all over again with a completely fresh install.

After the Uninstaller has done its stuff and got rid of the app itself it'll ask if you want to do a scan of the PC to clean out the registry etc; I always select the 'Advanced' scan and then delete everything that the uninstaller finds - by doing that you can be fairly confident that most if not all traces of the unwanted app are removed, which would hopefully get rid of the password that's still hanging around somewhere in the PC.

Good luck!

The red bar on the left means you are sending to much volume into WSJT-x, adjust the microphone setting in the audio contols

 

With little / no  signals it should be below 40, normal operating it should be about 60  and the bar green, with possibly the odd spike up into the red above 80
