Gary,

Edd is trying to install WSJT-X on a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W board. He can't use the Debian package we provide because he has installed a later version of Raspberry Pi OS on his board which means he needs to to compile WSJT-X from sources. He can't do that on the target board because it has insufficient RAM to complete the build. He is able to build on another Raspberry Pi with more resources and then should be able to build a Debian package that he can transfer to the target board and install.

If any of that is relevant to you then let us know what issues you have?

I need volunteers who have the need for TCI 1.5 and one for TCI 1.6
Does anybody need TCI 1.4?

I don't yet what the difference is but apparently JTDX's implementation only works on 1.5.

I'm going to add it to hamlib so you'll be able to download the new DLL to get it.

Good evening Bill.
I have successfully used the install recipe contained in the source tarball to build WSJTX 2.5.2 on an RPI 4B (4GB SDRAM) on RPI OS Bullseye.
But I believe the last line in the recipe is incorrect -- "sudo cmake --build . --target install" gives an error "sudo: cmake: command not found". I think the correct script should be "sudo make install" - that command runs and installs wsjtx 2.5.2 into /usr/local/bin and will run from that location, albeit without a desktop icon. It must be run with the RUN command or migrate to the folder and click on it.

The tarball recipe will not run beyond building hamlib on my RPI Zero W2 (500MB SDRAM) on RPI OS Bullseye.

Please verify my change for the last line in the recipe is correct.

Hi Edd,

because you have not installed the cmake Debian package, root does not have cmake on its PATH. Try:

sudo -E cmake --build . --target install

although that may also fail depending on the security options set for sudo. The issue is not the command but the way you have installed CMake. Probably easier to install the distribution cmake package.

I thought you wanted to run on your Pi Zero, to do that try making a Debian package that you can then move to your target machine to install with dpkg.

cmake --build . --target package

You may need to install more packages for the package target to complete.

Good afternoon Loyd, Kari, and Bill - thanks to all for your suggestions.
I have WSJTX 2.5.2 installed and working on multiple OS Buster / RPI 3 and RPI4s. I will try the build procedure on an RPI4 with Bullseye soon.
There were no other applications running except nano for me to read the build instructions from the INSTALL file.
But I wanted to add it to a new RPI Zero W2 I have recently received (as much as anythng to try to run the build from source process).
Yes Bill, the RPI Zero 2 W has only 512 MB of SDRAM - if that is too little to allow the build process to run then so be it - it was worth a try (and a learning exercise for me).
Have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow (you can enjoy it with us if you like Kari and Bill!).

Hi all

 

Bill, TCI 1.5 spec as used in JTDX 2.2.156, and the most recent version of MSHV also controls the audio stream. TCI 1.6 has been developed specifically for ExpertSDR V3 which is currently in alpha state. Neither of the 2 aforementioned programs work with TCI 1.6 yet.

 

@Roger ExpertSDR will let you go down to steps of 0.1 Hz

Hi Roger,

 

as far as I can see the TCI feature for sample data is only implemented for I/Q data from ExpertSDR, not foe baseband PCM audio which is what is needed for WSJT-X, although audio does seem to be promised in some future version of TCI. Looking at the TCI 1.6 spec it does have commands to control audio streams, so maybe it is implemented.

 

I see the CAT via a virtual COM port uses a TS-480 emulation, I don't see why that would limit the SDR to 100 Hz steps, what do you have set in the "Step" drop-down list in ExpertSDR?

Thats not totally true but 100hz steps, which is all I’ve been able to achieve, is useless as a microwave IF.
