Hello Johan,

I have decided to change RPI3B to newest one with 4 GB ram. 

After first run, I have crazy behaviour and I do not know whats happend, please see attached picture.

Futhermore, you have written about 4 receivers capability, but I have just two.

My configuration is with CL025.

Do you have any idea, What am I doing wrong?

Thank for help and 73

Hey Martin

In the header the v0.0 is visible.... seems that the gateware is not loaded.



especially the check section.

Hope this helps

Gateware is in the latest pictures loaded.

Do you have IO settings in pihpsdr?

I have disabled all IO options. And completly new and clear instalation by wiki.

Hello Johan,

I made a few attemps and I attach 3 logs and a picture.
1st step, I checked a status after normal restart (see status and manual run.txt)
2nd step, I run sudo pihpsdr by a terminal, no version was detected (see term_log_sudo_pihpsdr.txt)
3rd step, I stop a service and run radioberry manualy via terminal (see status and manual run.txt)
4th step, again I run sudo pihpsdr by a terminal, version was detected (7.2, see term_log_sudo_pihpsdr_manual_radioberry.txt), but behavirour is same like before (see picture)

all for steps are repetable.

Thanks
Martin OK2MTW

Hi Martin

Tnx for detailed information; this is really helpfull.

I do see that your timing of tx is not ok!

Your radioberry worked running the RPI-3. The questions is also in full duplex mode?

Because i think you missed the following:

HARDWARE MODIFICATION: 
To make use of the new FIR filters which are working on double clock, reducing some FPGA resources a small hardware mod is required. 
An additonal clock on pin 53 of the FPGA must be provided by connecting this to pin 69 of the FPGA (connected to the CLKOUT1 of the AD9866). 
Using this clock a FPGA PLL circuit can be used to produce the right clock! (required for the beta 2, 3 PCB, i will include the change in beta 4)  

Please first confirm that this jumper between 53-69 of FPGA is there?


Pleasse switch also of the SPI in raspiconfig (need to update this on the wiki) .


With the above in place and no working radio we need do dig furher...

Hope this helps

Hi Johan,

yes I confirm, that I soldered interconnection between pin 53-69 on my relese 3 pcb.

And yes I switch off SPI setting, I followed your conversation probrably with Tokio. However currently I have no possibility to check clocking by scope, but I hope I will be soon.

Please, do you have any description about right clocking per pin and step by step.

Tnx Martin OK2MTW

Hello again,
I have checked again 53-69 interconnection and compare it with Tokio's photo and I found my mistake. I had 53-70 inteconnection, so I hope that it didnt damage something.
For a moment I am not able to test it, but during the evening I test it and give you feedback.

Hello Johan, the problem solved, I made mistake with pins, how I mentiond before. Now it is working great, like before with a year old version or or definitely beter :-)

Thanks and be safe

Very nice that your radioberry is working on a RPI-4.

You have been lucky... pin 70 is a vcc pin....

Also for you stay safe and enjoy the radio hobby.

One more question, what's a condition for 4 receivers?  Pihpsdr and any terminal log have show me only 2 RX.

 Sparksdr is a great application. i have used in on a w10 machine running 4 channels and decoding.

Also possible to run at your rpi.

Quisk can do the same.
