Re: DMR to AllStar Bridge - Private Call to DMR ID without a TG?


WillieB <will@...>
 

Well I tested a private call, my DMR ID to a friend’s DMR ID, both of us with an HT behind a hotspot and it worked perfect. I could call him and he could call me. Then I tested some more with my bridge using 3113756 for both the gatewayDmrId and for txTg. It didn’t work in either direction. I could PTT on my HT and not hear anything on AllStar, and I could transmit on AllStar and not hear anything on my HT.

 

In the meantime I received my other new DMR ID so I tested with it as well. See settings below for Analog_Bridge.ini, but unfortunately nothing is working, same results. 3110229 is my new ID and 311356 is my older one. I’m I setting this up correctly? If I set the contact to TG9 like Steve suggested then how do I specify to call my other DMR ID? I’m quite confused still on how to set this up as a bridge from my ASL node to my HT. Are there any kind of pseudo talkgroups or something similar? Any other ideas?

 

gatewayDmrId = 3110229                  ; ID to use when transmitting from Analog_Bridge

repeaterID = 311022901                  ; ID of source repeater

txTg = 3113756                          ; TG to use for all frames received from Analog_Bridge -> xx_Bridge

It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a group or private call. I’ll play around with different settings and see what works.

Hmmm,
A private call? Interesting idea. Then maybe put the TG back to 9? I'll have to think/play with this idea...

It’s working fine with a TG, but doesn’t seem to be working by me changing the txTg field to my 3113756 DMR ID and rebooting the bridge. I’m sure I’m just doing something wrong. As a test on my HT I did a manual private call to 3113756 and I don’t hear anything on the AllStar node. And when I key the AllStar node nothing happens on my HT. When I look in Brandmeister self-care, it’s showing an Auto Static group of 3113756 which I believe is correct. I’ve attached logs to the email which may help. I’m open for suggestions.

You should be able to put your current DMRID in, you wont need a second ID.

Thanks Steve,

 

I’ve always argued the point to my teachers is that it depends on what definition of “sound” that you use lol. I have requested an additional DMR ID waiting for approval. Once it is approved I’ll test using it. My guess is that I just put the DMR ID in the txTg field in place of the TG in the Analog_Bridge.ini file.

 

If that doesn’t work I’ll wait on the example documentation for the HBlink.

Will,
A couple of comments here. Tying up a TG is a relative thing.  Almost like if a tree falls in a forest and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound. My point is that you can use DMRID as a TG. I do it all the time for testing. Another way to solve the issue is to setup hblink as a server or master. Point your MMDVM_bridge at it and point you HS at it. You now have a private connection between MMDVM_Bridge and your ZUMspot.

We are working on the documentation now and a example of that type of config is planned. HBlink is pretty easy to setup.

Hello group,

 

I have searched and haven’t found anything so hopefully you guys can point me in the right direction. First of all many many thanks to Steve and anyone else involved for these programs and applications!

 

I am using dvswitch with analog_bridge, mmdvm_bridge, and md380-emu to create a DMR to AllStar bridge. I have it working (Many thanks to KV4S (Russell)) fine bridging to a DMR talkgroup. My question is, can I bridge an AllStar node directly to a DMR user ID without a talkgroup? I guess this would be a private call? What I’m trying to accomplish here is to allow me to use my ZUMspot to connect to AllStar nodes through the bridge, but without tying up an entire talkgroup. Thanks in advance.
