Re: Li-ion battery

Willi, OE1WKL
 

As long as the voltage is always under 4.2 V  and over 3.3 V you could probably run the Morserino with it. But you should not try to charge the battery through it - the hardware charging logic In the Heltec module is strictly for lipos only.

Hi all, I have a number of Li-ion batteries and would like to know if it is okay to use a lithium ion battery putting out 3.85 volts, instead of a lipo battery putting out 3.7 volts? The capacity is in excess of 1000 mAh.
Thanks for your help.

Hello all,

I am also looking forward to the straight key echo training feature.
Would be much appreciated.

May Willi can confirm if the feature will make mit to the next version.

You can use a straight key by going into the menu and selecting cw decode instead of going into the normal keyer part of the menu. In cw decode the straight key works fine. 
It would be nice to have a key option in the setup so you can use the straight key in the echo mode.

WiFi Issues

arnold@...
 

Folks!
I have found several reports here discussing WiFi problems. First of all it worked fine without any problems for me. So I sat down to verify possible problems. I used a Cisco acces point several meters away from me.

OE1WKL recommends to increase the WiFi intensity. I guess that the field could be too strong as well. Using a cheap netgear router close to the morserino caused problems, in about 1m distance it worked again. My normal network uses extreme long complex passwords > 33 char and that worked without problems. So there is no need to downgrade security on that side.

I have 2,4GHz and 5,1GHz here but I only used the 2,4GHz net to connect, I have not tried tha 5,1GHz net.. On both devices I announce the access with different names so I know which band I use.

Eventually this might help to trace down WiFi connection problems.

Re: Morserino with a straight keyer

Chuck Broadwell, W5UXH
 

I started with a straight key in 1960, and have been CW only since then.  But, I built my first keyer (a W9TO with four vacuum tubes, two tube regulators and a mercury relay for the key line) within the first year or so.  As for any topic of "which is better", you will get recommendations from one extreme to the other.  I appreciate the sound of an excellent fist on a key, or a bug, but feel for learning, the electronic keyer is good because it provides some of the timing needed for clean CW keying.  It still requires the user to develop an ear for properly timed code.

The W9TO keyer was not "iambic".  If I recall correctly, when used with a dual lever paddle (two J-38 keys mounted back to back) the dash "overrode" the dot.  When I moved to an iambic keyer, it probably happened to be Type A, but all I know now is that my fingers prefer A.  Years ago, when rigs first came out with internal keyers, I believe it was common that they did not provide an option for A or B, but only had B.  Everyone who learned on B of course finds it hard to use A and vice versa.  I feel that B is more demanding on finger timing at higher speed.  

The other option that comes up is "to squeeze or not squeeze".  Again you will find proponents for each one.  N1FN wrote a paper years ago to state his case for non squeeze:  http://www.morsex.com/pubs/iambicmyth.pdf
I think K7QO takes the side of squeeze keying.  I do not know if this article is where he makes his arguments for squeeze keying or not:  http://morse-rss-news.sourceforge.net/keyerdoc/K7QO_Iambic_Paddle.pdf

I am on the side of not squeezing.  I use a dual lever paddle, iambic type A, and do not squeeze.  A few years ago I decided to try a single lever paddle thinking perhaps some of my errors might be reduced.  My conclusion was that the type of errors merely changed, but my error rate was still higher than I care for.

I think the most important thing to do while learning any manner of sending is to be able to recognize errors and clearly correct them.  If errors are made and not corrected, then depending on the nature of the error, it can make copy much more difficult for the other op.  I have had QSOs where I had to really struggle to try to figure out what was being sent.  I would prefer that the other op QRS to a speed where their error rate is reasonably low than to push the speed with a higher error rate.

Re: Morserino with a straight keyer

They told you to learn with a straight key because they did.  And of course, as with most hams... “their way” is the “best way.”

In today’s world, learn with the tools we have.  Gone are the days when the US Navy would teach Morse Code to a room full of radio men 8 hours a day, 6 days a week.

The hams from that generation learned morse with a straight key.  With the numbers dwindling, why would we reduce our effectiveness by taking a 50 year step back in time?

Morserino is an excellent tool.  

Try it...  you might like it, and let the LIDS be lids somewhere else.

Re: Morserino with a straight keyer

I learned morse in the 60’s with a straight key and because of it I have a fantastic fist but it is incredibly tiring above 15 wpm. 
I have been struggling to learn iambic b.  I love it but make a lot a mistakes because it is not natural yet.

If I had learned iambic back then (I would have been ahead of the technology but that’s beside the point) I wouldn’t have the speed limit and learning straight key is easier  as the second rather than the first keying method.

I would humbly suggest you learn with the keyer first.  

This is from someone who is emphatic about the use of morse in emergencies….2 wires, lights, pounding objects, etc.

Hello.  I just built up my kit today and it went a lot better than I was originally thinking it would.  First time really building a kit and it all went well and even worked once done :

I updated to FW Ver 2.0 after the build, but was wondering about the new feature added CW Generator & Auto Stop

"- Auto Stop : Stops the generating of morse characters in CW Generator and Koch Generator modes after one word (or letter group) to help with learning head copying. One word is being played (without being shown); continue by touching the paddle or clicking the black knob, and the word will be shown. Touch again to play the next word. This is enabled by setting the parameter „Auto Stop“ to On. (This feature has been contributed by Matthias Jordan, DO3JNE.)"

When I enable Auto Stop, touch a paddle to start it off, i get the vvv<ka>.. it waits and does not display until i touch a paddle, then it will display. This works, but then when i touch the paddle again to kick off the next word i get vvv<ka> again

I never get to the "next" word with Auto Stop enabled

I looked through the issues and did not see this listed. Am I doing something wrong, or is it a bug ?

Thanks

THis thing really is amazing. I can see alot of time learning on this tool

Now it works : The router has to be connected to the internet.
The Update Website is using some AJAX Javascript which is
downloaded from the internet.

So dont use a separate router to update which has not internet access :-)

I have found out with my new router that I have to be connected to both 2.4G and 5G on my computer so I can have over 100Mb wireless but the morserino32 would not connect to the 5G network but the 2.4G works fine.

Re: Battery

Patrick Dirks, N6PWD
 

Exactly.  FWIW I ordered the same batteries and also "3 Sets Tiny Whoop JST-PH 2.0 Pin Male Female Connector Cable for Upgrading Blade Inductrix” (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072B66P5C) for $6.88.  Came in handy, too - one went up in smoke when I trimmed the wire length (with metal cutters, of course) while the connector was still connected to the battery!  It was only a brief short-circuit but those LiPos can deliver enough current to melt the connector in an instant (fortunately the battery seems none the worse for it).  Never work on powered-on circuitry, LOL!

You can use one of these connectors to solder to the board in place of the connector that comes in the kit.  Works like a charm.

I own a Morserino which i upgraded successfully to 1.3 some time ago. Now i
wanted to upgrade to 2.0 but without success. Wifi is running fine, i can reach
the website and log in to update. I select the browsebutton and point it to the
v2 bin file. when i press the "Begin" button no Progress Bar change, but website
gots empty and only text left is "Not found : /serverIndex".
I tried Ubuntu and Windows10, Firefox and Edge, i tried 1.4 and 2.0 - also with
2 different wifi routers, tried smartphone and notebook. All gave the same result
with the "ServerIndex" failure. Any hint for me what could be wrong ?
