Anyone built theirs yet?

Howard W6HDG
 

Hi everyone.  I am expecting my Morserino 32 in the next wave of shipments. Has anyone in the first group built theirs yet?

I had a question on battery size. The specs say a maximum of 65 x 20 x 8 mm. But in the US the Tattu batteries are listed as 24mm wide. Is that a problem?

73, Howard W6HDG

Yes, I have
This is the battery I used:

Hi Howard,

With the max dimensions given you can mount the battery underneath the Heltec Module. You can use larger batteries, but then you have to place them under the PCB, on the bottom plate of the case. For this reason two sets of bottom distance bolts are supplied with the kit, 6mm and 12mm long. With the 12 mm distant bolds you can place most flat single cell LiPo batteries underneath the PCB.
See the attached photo how the Tattu battery sits underneath the Heltec module…

Hi Everyone!

This has been a great project! Thank you Willi! I built mine last week and have been testing it out. I love the Echo Trainer mode. It makes my brain hurt (in a good way).

I bought these batteries from Amazon.com as I didn't want to buy six units (the minimum for the Tattu batteries):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0756WN9JS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Here are some photos. I mounted the battery under the PC board using a double sided adhesive strip.







Hope to have a video produced soon on the Morserino-32. Watch my YouTube channel (W4EEY).

Hi all!

I had GitHib integration turned on for this group - but I noticed too many posts would be created, most of them probably not of higher interest, so I turned this off again. If you want to be notified about updates on the GitHub site, you can set notifications on their site, so that you will be informed timely about any changes.

Hoping you are all having fun with building and using your Morserino-32!

Software idea #github

Gerard
 

Thank you for the nice work. My two system are up and running.

It would be nice to have a parrot function where one morserin32 send back everything it receives with a short delay (2-5 sec).
This would help to test link distance without an active partner being present.

Re: Software idea #github

Hi Gerard,

That's an interesting idea, and I will consider it and put it on the TO DO List (but currently have mono timeframe for it).

One could even make this into a simple CW „repeater“, by delaying the repeat until „<kn>“ arrives as a single word (or the pause getting very long). In this way even larger distances could be bridged (at the cost of increased delays, of course).

external straight key

dk7de@...
 

Hello YL/OM,

today I finallized my morserino and it works fine :-)

When I go to CW Decoder I can use my external straight key to morse characters and read them on the display - This works good.
When I Choose echo trainer and set "Ext. Paddle" in the settings menue I get only dits when I hold down the straight key. There is no continuous tone to get dits and dahs. 
Is it possible to use a straight key in this mode? What settings do I have to do? In the settings on point "Paddle" I can Choose "Touch Paddle" or "Ext. Paddle", but no straight Key.

I hope someone can help.

Hi Jörg,

The Echo Trainer mode works with paddles (touch or external) only!

Housing tuning

To all,
I am making some bottom plate out of powder-coated steel to replace the original plexiglas plate. I want to add some weight so the morserino stay on the table.
As it is easy to make some more if done in one batch. I am asking who may be interested. The target price will be arounf 8,50 EUR plus shipping for one plate.
Please drop me an email c557@... if you are interested.

strange display

Wolf, OE7FTJ
 

Hi All!

The brand new Morserino32 was today at my frontdoor. Assembling was OK in aprox an hour. Every step was checked with the instructions.
But after power on, the display shows defective columns. It's very hard to read the menu items and other instructions on the display.

Any ideas what is going wrong or is it a defective amoled module?

dr wolf,
this seems to be a problem with the LoRa-module - nut your fault. You should contact Willi directly.

Hi Torsten,

Willi was so kind to send me a new module. Today it arrived, assembled and it works as it should!
A big thank you to Willi for his fast support.

Straight key

Wolf, OE7FTJ
 

Hi All!

After doing my first steps with the Morserino32 I encountered two issues:

On page 3 of the manual the plug #10 is decsribed to connect an external paddle as well as a straight key. But I didn't find any settings to switch from a paddle to a straight key. Menusettings are for Curtis A, Curtis B and Ultimatic only.
Is this for a future fw release only?

The second is the volume of the onboard speaker. In my opinion it's too weak audio and in a noisier enviroment hard to hear.

Wolf,

The straight key is currently only supported for the Decoder function - you can use the decoder to verify what you give with the straight key.

Re. audio in noisy environments: in such environments it might be better to use headphones anyway....

Re: Straight key

Hi all,

correct me if I am wrong but to use the straight-key with the decoder-Input a separate side-tone generator would be necessary, right?
BecauseI have tested to simply plug my Straight-Key to both of the IN/OUT ports and nothing happened in decoder mode when I start to key.

The Morserino32 itself is a kind of masterpiece but for me is a bit of a shame as I joined this project because I was looking forward to the Echo-Training
with a straight key. Hopefully this feature will be added to the software soon. Because I was told, first learn to operate with a straight key and then if
you can handle this start with the paddle.

Is there may already an plan/estimation if/when this feature will become available?
I also would volunteer for beta tests.

Kind regards and vy 73
