What is next in line?

My dear friend 9W2RUT is really testing me out .. he just bought two LCD 20x4 displays from Jalan Pasar .. that is enough to generate an interest to venture into new project for me. The Tracker2 and TinyTrak4 are both capable of displaying messages on 20x4 LCD. There are quite a number of LCD sellers on ebay, I'm aiming for the white-over-blue with backlight display.. RM42/pc sent from China .. not bad for the price since it cost more from Jalan Pasar. Probably will order it tomorrow :)

Info on how to get the LCD display working on Tracker2 could be found here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tracker2/message/5694. Photo posted by Scott:


And here is where all the information on how to get this thing working for TinyTrack4 (we need to have at least v0.51 firmware):


My hands are itchy now.

Great to see that my TinyTrak4 wiki has been of some use to you! I don't get a lot of feedback from it so I'm never sure if the content is sufficient...

Hi Scott, thanks for visiting my blog .. your wiki helps a lot for sure.. there are few of us here in Malaysia that have interest on APRS + some of us are trying to get the display + keyboard working. Will drop by in the mailing list if we need help badly .. cheers ..

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.
