9W2OMG is on the air!

Was trying to post this while we were down south, but could not get a good 'free' internet connection. Anyway, my daughter is now a licensed ham with a 9W2OMG callsign. Probably she is among the few 14 years old hams getting their licenses this year. 

Anyway, she has her own handy now, a Kenwood TH-F7E which has a lot of features which I didn't realised when I bought it. It has dual monitoring, it is a dual band HT and guess what, it is a scanner too which could receive SSB. That is interesting for sure.. 

Tomorrow will be a big day for me.. I'm going to make a bit of adjustment on my base antenna setup. I've bought a Diamond CP-6 vertical antenna .. and I guess it is the right time for me to put it up. I've surveyed my roof top and I guess, the X200 need to make a move for the CP-6. Helpers? Nah, don't think I need to organise an antenna party .. I'll ask my daughter help for sure :) Family antenna party may be .. haa..haa.. Will try to post any photos taken during the exercise..

Configuring TechniColor TG784N V3 (Maxis issued broadband router) to use different DNS servers

Previous write up deleted. It seems to change the DNS servers in as shown on the status, but it does not really work.

Check the following website, this seems to work:

This can be done from the WEB GUI too, go into the following configuration path:


In my example above, I'm using paid service unblock-us instead of google public DNS servers.

Raspberry Pi + svxlink = Low power echolink node

What is the easiest way to get echolink node up and running on raspberry pi? Surely, get a premade image which has everything inside. I've created one image which can fit into 2GB SD card for this, just follow the following steps to get it up and running:

For hardware, you need to have the following:
Raspberry Pi for sure, with a minimum 4GB SD cardA USB echolink interface, can be commercially sourced or DIY. There are many DIY schematics out there that you could follow.  Here is the configuration on how to get the things working together, courtesy of svxlink.de website:

For software:
Download the following prepared image from google drive, it is based on raspbian-2015-02-16 image and has pre-installed svxlink-14.08. raspi-wheezy-svxlink.img.zipUnzip the file and copy it to your SD card using the following instructions that can be found here.Boot up the RasPi, if you do not have an HDMI monitor, you may want to access the RasPi from your terminal emulator (putty or the like), connec…

Debugging DMEE

I've come across many posting on the Internet (via google search), people asking on how to debug a DMEE for payment program. One of the few suggestion was to create a user exit just before the node that we would like to debug and put our breakpoint there. It seems that SAP has built-in this feature without needing us to create a user exit (available in ECC 6, have no idea if this is available on prior releases). Here is how you can put your breakpoint without any coding.

1. Display your DMEE tree using transaction: DMEE_DEBUG.


2. Click on the node that you would like to debug.
3. Go to conditions tab, you could see the Set Breakpoint button. Click to set.



4. Run the SAPFPAYM and specified the payment run date/id, payment format etc. SAP will stop at the node which you point your breakpoint at, as in 2.
5. To remove your breakpoint, just run the DMEE_DEBUG again, there is an option to delete all own breakpoints or all.
