Heltec Module Antenna Connector

Juergen Wagner
 

Hello Willi and Friends,
one of our builder reports that he has difficulties to cklick on the coax connector
on the Heltec's coax socket. My self, i remember that i used a combi pliers because I
was afraid that something else would break off. With the pliers then the force was in
opposite directions and worked finde. Are there other known techniques ?
Many thanks for ur infos...

Re: wifi connection

I don't think it is a  weak signal issue.  I placed the Morserino on top of the wifi with no success. I have even reset the wifi.  Also in the past, I was able to update firmware twice with no problem.  I don't know what could have changed. I guess I need to see if Spectrum ( my wifi provider ) has any suggestions.  Thanks, Jim M.

I can only assume that the WiFi signal from your router is too weak. Put the Morserino in direct vicinity of your WiFi router. Or did you change anything in your WiFi setup since you updated succesfully?

I use 192.168.4.1  Then I input my wifi info.  The Morserino resets.  Then I select update firmware on the Morserino.  After a few seconds it says 'no wifi'.

Dan,

I’ll take it if it works and if it is not already gone. I can do PayPal or whatever.

Incidentally, I thoroughly enjoy your site and blog. I haven’t seen a really thorough of your impression of the Morserino32 now that you’ve put it together and used it.

Thanks,
Justin Long K5JTL

No, it needs an SSID and password before it can connect. Please read the instructions again. You connect your computer to teh Access point created by Morserino with the menu item WiFi config. And you point your browser to teh IP address of teh Morserino on its own access point, in order to get the form to enter SSID and password.

Once this has been done, you select Update - now the Morserino connects to YOUR WiFi network, and you point your browser to the IP address shown on the Morserino.

It never connects.  Isn't it supposed to connect before I enter the SSID?  When I click on Morserino to connet, it never connects.

James,

Maybe you try to enter teh SSID and Password again in WiFi Configuration? Maybe it lost the details…

I have upgraded firmware successfully twice.  I am now trying to upgrade to 1.4.  In the past, I connected to my wifi successfully.  This time the Morserino will not connect.  When I click to connect, it tries but then says no connection.  I placed the Morserino inches from my modem, watched the video and anything else I can think of.  Any suggestions?

Re: Audio Input from Receiver

Matthew Pullan
 

The 4 pin connector is both line out and line in, hence 4 wires. It was intended to allow easier connection to a PC for iCW, although if you solder your own 2 wire cable you can, of course, use just the line in for reading from a TRX. The headphone jack is completely separate and not used when connecting to a PC. The correct wiring diagram is in the manual.

The TRRS is getting popular with both PCs and MACs.

It also allows a headphone to be plugged in to be used as a monitor, while the TRRS carries line level in and out

I don't understand the logic of using a 4 wire connector for Audio In for decoding the received signal.  Most radios output is going to be TRS, not TRRS.
Must I find a TRS to TRRS cable to make the decoder work?

Low Speaker Audio

Ben Cook
 

I put my morerino together several weeks ago, but have just recently completed building my external key. Noticing when I use either the internal or external key the internal speaker audio is really low. Even when cranked all the way up to the right. I've double checked the solder joints and everything seems good there. Any ideas?

Re: Feature request-turn off sleep mode

Craig T. Bailey
 

HI Bruce,

the sleep timer value can be adjusted in settings. That would be a global setting.

I don't think my Vibroplex vibrokeyer adds an erronious dit when I have my morserino set to Iambic B, but I will check that and report back.

Re: Documentation needs updating

Ben Cook
 

FWIW, I was actually just doing this clone/branch/modify/push/pull request myself this week to try and help make the manual a little more readable. Editing as a hobby is slow going though, so I imagine incremental updates as I go. Would be cool to have others help out with this as well as they have time.

I like that this group has other amateurs that know how to program and are interested in tinkering under the hood. Programming (and GitHub for that matter) are skills that can be continuously improved. Especially if that’s not your main forte. Thank you all for helping me and others in the group learn that.

Re: Documentation needs updating

Bruce
 

I looked at the manual on your GitHub page.

 

This line in documents should be updated:

Start Menu #1 no mention of Non squeeze but farther down under Using the Modi “CW Keyer” you do mention it.

 

I thought there was an issue with time out but it appears even though I scrolled to it I must not have hit the

button again so the value was not saved, no time out in this case but back to 5 mins.

 

I must have had an older version of the manual that I printed out so will print out the latest.

Bruce,

 

I always update the documentation when a new version is released, and the documentation is always available on GitHub (like the newest binary for the software).

Also wert the items you mentioned, both Time-Out and Non_squeeze Mode are dealt with in the parameter section of the manual.

Ok so here i am again about Features requested.
Turns out you can turn off sleep mode. From looking at the source code again I saw where sleep mode time could be changed 5 , 10, 15 mins or no time out
can be selected so I have done this and verified it.
So no more requests for now as all my issues with Morserino-32 have been answered just by looking over the source code.
If you change the source code PLEASE PLEASE update the user manual as all my questions would have been answered if the manual reflected
what the source code is.
