Finally, CP-6 installed ..!!!

Took a break from work this morning, too much work makes me dull for sure .. haa..haa. So, armed with few poles and self-made brackets, I braved myself to install the CP-6 which I bought last weekend. First, I need to move the existing Diamond X-200 to make a way for the CP-6. Since the CP-6 will be a bit heavier than X-200, it needs a sturdier setup. I did both, moving the -X200 .. tested and it seems to be okay .. and go ahead with installation of CP-6.

I am yet to finish the installation, I have not route the cable properly and it is not connected to my rig yet. I'll do that most probably tomorrow morning .. no more energy to do the rest. I will snap some photos and surely will post it here ..

Update: Connect it up to my rig, could receive audio on 20M from VK land alright and surely 40M .. but the SWR is quite high. So, need to go up again tomorrow and retune the radials. I guess having the MFJ259B is really handy for this sort of job.

Update 2: Radials had been retuned to resonance on the frequencies that I wanted. One man job for sure with the help of MFJ259B. Made couple of local contact on 10m but yet to get any DX stations. Propagation is surely not that good on 10m at the moment.

Update 3: Up till 01/03/09, I've worked with few local stations on 10m. The day the CP6 properly tuned, I had 9W2MZY (Kepong), few days after 9W2KGV (Damansara Damai), yesterday, I've got 9W2YCC (PJ) and just now at around 10:50MYT I worked with 9W2OO (Banting). I tried to work with 9W6SUE yesterday afternoon around 16:30MYT, but I guess there were a pile-up when quite a number of 9W2s trying to work with him from Peninsular.

OK Zal, dah tuned .. centre frequency is at 28.5 now instead of 29.1 as before. See you on 10m then .. :)

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 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.
