Re: Is this even possible?


Could I make the suggestion that you post that here as well. Not just off-list.

So perhaps that may stop multiple questions of the same from appearing here.

I'm sure many may learn from it even if not doing exactly the same.

I am actually doing exactly what you are doing.  I have my hblink setup with multiple connections.  8802 is also on my TS1.  I am doing this with both Motorola repeaters and a Homebrew repeater.  However I am testing a pre-release so my configs won't work for you just yet.

I do NOT use the hblink Bridge-all so I only have specific BM talkgroups coming across on my repeaters.

It will be a few days before I can send you an example of my configs, but if you want me to set you up with a connection to my HBlink so you can at least get connected and test it so that you have access to 8802 I can do that.  I will need to pull in 3151 but that won't be a problem.

Please email me off list if you are interested.

I've reached the point where I need someone with experience with these tools to point me in the right direction.  I think I am getting overwhelmed with too much "there's more than one way to do it" combined with not knowing the limitations of the various branches of dmrlink and hblink (IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge specifically).

I have the need to connect 2 repeaters up to 2 different networks simultaneously.  One repeater is Mototrbo/IPSC and the other is MMDVM/Pi-Star.  One of the networks is a cBridge, and the other is Brandmeister.

On the IPSC repeater, the requirement is to have TS1 TG8802 and TS2 TG3151 by default, with TG8802 sourced from the cBridge, and TG3151 sourced from either the cBridge or Brandmeister.  I can get it from either source, but TG8802 is only from the cBridge due to policy.  The part that makes it difficult for me to know how to implement it is that the repeater owner wants TS1 to share with "any possible" BM TG, with a PTT setup with 15 minute timeout to revert to TG8802.

On the MMDVM repeater, the requirement is to have TS1 TG8802 and TS2 TG3151 by default.  Again, TG8802 sourced from the cBridge, and TG3151 from either.  The repeater owner on this one is me, and I'd rather have my PTT groups on TS2, and I don't necessarily care if it is "any possible" BM TG or simply a predefined subset.

Eventually, we might add additional DMR repeaters into the mix, and have different requirements for them.

I've started with a pristine install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, updated it, added Steve's DVSwitch-System-Builder script, and followed its directions.

Any suggestions for the best way to implement the system as described, or as closely as possible?

Thanks in advance,
